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.

    It might work but it really won’t make it much quieter if it’s a blow back due to most of the noise coming from the action , you may also suffer with accuracy and cycling issues once that adaptor and a moderator is screwed on due to the extra weight put on the barrel .

    I thought as much. To be honest I'm off work today and it's raining so I needed something to keep me busy :D I'm picking one up from toolstation for £1 so I'll have a play and report back.
    How are you loving the XDM by the way. I'm desperate to order one but I see mixed reviews on youtube.

    Nice one, yep lets have a update how you get on. Bit naff they dont provide 1/2 to 1/2" male though. I thinks they convert to a different thread so you will purchase the mod they provide for the 1911. Great Pistol the Swiss-arms 1911, not much needless white script on it. I bet your over the moon with it. Ps ALWAYS LOAD UP WITH 14 Max BB's. This way it will operate faultlessly (No jams).. I get about 4 stacks of 14 per co2 :thumb:. Enjoy it mate..

    I read your post on someone else's thread about long term care, it was really helpful to me thanks. I've also found that this pistol LOVES plastic ASG Blasters! I'm collecting the adaptor in an hour or so. Shame they don't do an m8 female to 1/2" male adapter so I could have saved £15 on the alecto

    Are you 100% sure it’s 1/2” female on the pistol ?

    Yes it is expensive, the point I was trying to make is the thread size. I made a similar mistake. Nay be worthwhile checking the airsoft sites for suitable adapters

    Not positive, it seemed close . For £1 I thought it was worth a pop. Typical it's 12mm lol

    Thank you for letting me know. There was very little online but I never thought to check for airsoft.

    Can confirm 1/2" to 1/2" doesn't fit. It needs the 12mm to 1/2"

    A lot of these .177 replicas you need to try and trace back through the family tree to the original airsoft replica it’s parts are copied from , my XDM’s for example are OEM by WE Airsoft , and WE use an 11mm internal thread , but plenty of others use 10mm , 12mm , most of the adaptors are to convert to 14mm positive or negative which is the most common Airsoft muzzle thread for flash hiders / moderators etc .

    The barrel on the 1911 is wide enough to tap out to 1/2 UNF, done it on one of mine. Can then use a male to male adapter.
