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.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    As far as I see it, you're asking a bit much of AA to supply a replacement part under warranty that's apparently been damaged as a result of use with a non-AA supplied, non-AA endorsed part.

    Had it broken during normal use you'd absolutely have the right to be irritated, but it didn't.

    End of the day a replacement is only a tenner or so, so it's not the end of the world.

    If you really want a rant, ask AA what they think of aftermarket regs in their S400s :D

    This his the email I have had from Air Arms today, concerning the email I sent them, with the reply I had from Rowan Engineering.

    Thank you for your email.

    The technical department has advised that we have no evidence that our magazines are causing this issue, as a good will gesture on this occasion we will send out a new indexing post assy to you.


    Regards,

    if i put a custom turret on my scope and it breaks the turret mechanism do i complain to the scope company or the turret maker

    p.s. for clarity with my hypothetical scope the booklet says nothing about using a custom turret

    Back in the 70s, just made redundant young family house working on, driving around looking for another job, head buzzing, pulled into a petrol station just outside Pontypridd, didn't get that far and it cut out me, used the phone at a builders yard across the road, to get a lift home, then back down there with tools, petrol pipes off drained tank, filled up with petrol,

    Recently broke the indexing post on my AA 510 Ultimate Sporter. In a way, I was glad it broke there and not deeper inside the gun where it would require lots of work.

    The indexing post spring, is the weakest link and therefore I think it's designed to fail first, rather than bend or break something else.

    I went online and got 2 for £9 each. I was using the rowan single shot adaptor and to be honest, I did the thing described above, where I hadn't pulled the lever back sufficiently, so it really was me being heavy handed with it.

    I'm not going to blame Air Arms for the fact that I'm using an aftermarket part. Seems to me, it's a sacrificial part and widely available, let's not start living in a blame culture.

    Ouch!

    I bought a 2019 AA s410f carbine last Thursday...
    Beautiful rifle but straight out of the box it was missing index

    I also have a tatty 2001 s410 that used to miss index occasionally and was cured by slightly bending the tip of the index spring arm tip downwards... so I did this on my new rifle.
    Cured for now but I have ordered the upgrade index post as I’ve never trusted the old spring arm type.
    Bit poor on a 2019 rifle to not have the new style post though
