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.

Question Innova Info

    Hi,

    Just bought my first innova (in .22) (but I have a feeling I may buy more) and it doesn't feel or look like it's running near to 12ftlb.

    At a guess I'd say 7-8ftlb.

    Is there anyway to adjust these as it requires 3 pumps until it makes what sounds like a knock off valve noise.

    Also, what's the stock made from? Is it hickory?

    Thanks
    Tom

    It's very easy to adjust the power output of these, but you'd be best taking it to a gunsmiths or airgun shop that has a chrono, to make sure that you don't end up with a firearm. ;)

    As already stated it is very easy to adjust the blow off which is behind the pump head, but you really need a chrony unless you want to chance loosing such a wicked multi pump and inccuring a fine or jail sentence as well. It's a simple job and a gunsmith would have it done in next to no time, so you shouldn't be charged that much. They are brilliant hunting air rifles with a moderator fitted IMO.

    Hi, I should have said I'm pretty handy with the mechanical side as I've adjusted power on pcps a few times, just wanted the info before I investigate myself. I also have a chrono....

    I used to own one years ago, cracking little rifle for the money. I always fancied an Ace, but they were out of my price range at the time.

    Just open her up you only need the arm off & pump rod out check measurement of rod length so can be put back right (if its right now that is) chck pump seal you will see how it works easily enough,should blow on about 5 pumps as said check with chrono when done.

    Just set the tension on that thick spring behind the pump head just so, and Bobs your uncle. However the plastic seat that the metal ball bearing rests on in the inlet valve can wear, but can be replaced with a thick rubber O ring which is an effective cheap fix. I had a .22 Innova which would only take 3 pumps and that was the problem in my case, they are really simple to work on i discovered.

    The stocks are made from a wood called meranti. A type of mahogany. The grain reverses which can give a lovely two tone effect.:up:

    Interesting, the forestock and shoulder stock are different (or finished different)

    I have now spent an hour fiddling with it and set it at 9-9.5 ftlb with 7pumps....
