1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

Improving the silencing of a TX200HC

    Thinking about improving the silencing of my .177 TX when shooting at home I started reading through some old posts on silencers. I then got to wondering if I got someone to turn up a 1/2" unf adaptor that fulfilled the dual role of the male TX plenum adaptor and female silencer fitting whether it would improve the noise reduction and/or if there would be any adverse effect to the rifle's performance. I'm sure someone must have tried it before and might like to comment, or anyone else ?

    Have a look in the Sales section, MattW makes custom ones that will fit he TX, and will not require an adapter ;)

    I had a Swift/SFS Stubby on mine but I took it off.It was only about 5" long but it still made the gun a bit too long.It worked really well though but I am a bit clumsy and would have ended up bashing it eventually! I wouldn't bother if you are hunting with one, but if you are plinking in the garden they make the TX a very quiet rifle.

    As above get an adaptor & fit what ever you like then. I would recommend the 'Sound Biter', made from delrin & around 100mm long, nice & light & ideal to quieten it down for garden shooting. Only around £20 too :)

    Thanks for all the replies and advice. I'm not sure however that any of them address entirely the original question which was whether a modified or newly manufactured plenum adaptor could be used in conjunction with a silencer so as to increase the noise reduction even further.
    At the mo' i have an AA silencer on there which has a male 1/2" thread. What I was wondering was whether a modified plenum adaptor with a female thread to take the current silencer could be used. If I understand it correctly the purpose of the adaptor is to give some noise reduction so would using both together give even greater noise reduction?
    I have to agree with everything said about Mattw's silencers. I have one on my Meteor Mk7 and wouldn't use the Meteor in the garden without it fitted!
    Sorry if I didn't make things too clear in my OP.

    The answer is no i'm afraid. It's one or the other. The plenum insert uses the treads that would otherwise be used by the silencer or visa-versa

    Thanks Richie. Yes, I did realise the muzzle thread was used either by the plenum or the silencer but what I was trying to put across, and guess I'm not making too good a job of it, was the idea I had of a replacement plenum adaptor which has a female thread in it to take the silencer I already have. The idea being that if it worked the plenum adaptor plus the silencer would increase the noise reduction.

    You wouldn't need to Dag, as there is effectively a "chamber" between the barrel and the start of the silencer. This will dampen the sound a little before the silencer does it's job. Take into consideration, the shroud will be helping too. All that's needed is a decent silencer, nothing more. TBO, most of the noise from the TX is from the action, you hardly hear anything downrange.

    The plenum insert doesn't really do much for silencing on it's own as there is a very small gap between the barrel and the insert for the shroud to do it's job.
