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.

    hi,

    got this t200 a few days ago and just went to fill it but the fill valve leaks down to about 145bar.

    picture posted is of the fill area and the brass small part is the leaking area.

    any ideas based on this?

    cheers & regards
    tom

    Have you put some water with a tiny bit of washing up liquid around to see 100% where the leak is?
    If its the brass gauze looking part possibly something is stuck in the fill valve, you could try giving it some quick sharp blasts with your charging bottle.

    Thankyou, the leak is actually where the brass threaded piece meets the stainless fill port part, can you tighten this in any way? Or is it a case of buy a new valve, bonded seal part BS011?

    There is two flats on the stainless part, they are for a spanner to fit so might just need a little more turning.

    In that case it needs a new seal or a new one altogether.

    That seal is for the old filler type.
    Dry firing the gun till its empty of all air, unscrew the air cylinder from the gun then use a spanner to remove the stainless peice and there should be an oring seal in there so either replace the oring or give the whole area a good clean and clean the oring with silicone oil and see if it seals, if it doesnt just replace the oring.

    The filling area looks a bit dirty,did you buy it second hand? looks like the owner used a bit too much grease and made everything stick to it, giving it a wipe down and a small wipe of Molykote 33 will do a great job in keeping the seals in top shape :up:

    Sometimes it only takes the smallest fleck of dirt/metal for the high pressure air to get under.
    When you get the new oring makes sure both the stainless and brass areas are spotless clean:)

    Cheers both will make it as clean as poss, yes it was used over this forum. I don't have any moly 33 but do have vp40 i think it is and then gun metalwork wipes (birchwood and Casey and webley ones) and then just bisley mineral oil (never used it as don't trust it), 3 in one and some Abbey moly lp20 (from memory) and red rubber grease.
    Any of the above usable Matty?

    Get some white sprit and fill the fun and dip it in the white sprit this will say were the leak is, if tits the valve you can get a new one for around £15
    You can do this with water but make sure you dry the area good and proper as it will rust

    Cheers, matty, also seen a tub on bestfittings too. Little fixes always end up costing more when you don't have the bits to do it properly, but my worshop is growing pretty quick :)
