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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    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.

    Gentlemen... well after a number of fellow Forum members have been chatting about the SMK Artemis CP1-M pistol.........I decided to bite the pellet and get one....

    BUT dear Gentlemen... NOT from the crappy service provided by some of our useless RFD's in the UK.... NO.....I got it from a Company in France (Toro Distribution) ... where I ordered it on Thursday afternoon... and it arrived this morning (Tuesday) by Federal Express.... for a princely sum of €114.. and that INCLUDES postage....

    So now... the tinkering REALLY begins....

    Your right about crappy service from UK dealers. I going to dip my toe in the water and try over seas. Can you use a visa debit card for instance?

    1 Thread the barrel M10 fine for custom mod
    2 Full strip down, and polish internals.. (possibly button the hammer)
    3 Polish trigger pawls and hammer spring
    4 Polish and chamfer magazine internals
    5 1:50 polished lead in on breech end of barrel
    6 Polish TP port on barrel
    7 Check and polish crown
    8 Make custom mod
    9 Carbon shroud barrel
    10 Possibly strip all wood and simply oil
    11 THOROUGH factory gunk clear out and apply moly where necessary
    12 polish pellet probe (possibly extend it depending on pellet depth)
    13 Make trigger shoe
    14 Modify standard trigger guard

    Will check the chrono after this.. and "adjust as necessary".

    Half of the stuff on your list of things to do I don’t understand but it’ll be interesting to see it when it’s finished. Two more for your list. Whatever moderator you fabricate retain the original foresight so when you're bored with red dots, pistol scopes and lasers you can revert back to real target shooting (sorry, my prejudices are coming out there). Secondly ditch the grip and fabricate something that is moulded to your hand, think Gamo Compact or any of the high end target pistols.

    Really looking forward to your finished article.

    Edit to add: 2-stage trigger.
    Edit a second time. Open the window in the rear sight blade if you intend to shoot it au naturale.

    Hal . Yours may be different but on mine and one or two others when the rear sight height adjustment screw is tightened all the way in as i needed to do at first using the open sights , it stops the bolt from moving so i took about 0.25 to 0.5 mm off it and all was good again and it gave me the adjustment i required . I hope this makes sense from a level one learner to a grand master tinkerer .:thumb:

    As was mine.

    To a degree UK RFDs have my sympathy, how can they possibly compete with the rest of Europe who can send air pistols / rifles / moderators to your doorstep when they can’t? They are operating with one arm tied behind their backs leaving it to the likes of Pellpax to swallow that market, inflate prices and make a Horlicks of it. UK pricing is another issue but I don’t know the reason behind that so can’t comment, I do however have a shopping list should I get another North American trip before retirement.

    I agree, although some of them don't help themselves, not answering emails, crappy websites, high prices etc
