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.

    Recently bought a Leshiy (1) so set about making a new silencer baffle set for it.

    Coming along nicely so far. Takes 8 hours to 3d print so progress is slow, work gets in the way too :D.

    It's a work in progress and more testing is needed but at least I have the rifle this time to trial fit and test this out. Low density foam fills the voids well and so far seems to be working well. The lower compartment vents to the upper with the baffles and foam.

    I will offer them for sale if I can make them reliable and work well. As I said watch this space!

    Any suggestions gratefully received :thumb:

    Looks good mate :up: I've had the original baffle, then tried the custom carbon baffle, which was a big improvement over the standard fitment, and recently my +20mm akula moderator has arrived which is a substantial amount better than the custom carbon version.

    Hopefully you get yours into production as id like to give one a go.

    Good luck mate :up:

    Managed to tweak my initial design for a better fit today. It's a difficult design to print due to some internal structures, however I think I've solved that issue and I successfully printed one, popped some foam in it for some quick comparisons with the standard baffles.

    Initial impressions are good! Definitely seems quieter, a softer sound too if that makes any sense. Need to try some gel/foam combinations and also set up my iPhone down range with the db meter app (not the best but all I have).

    So at the very least I have a new improved baffle for my Leshiy :D. I reckon I'll be able to offer them for sale on the member manufactured items within a week or so if no major hurdles.

    Looking good, and uncannily like the Donny extended baffle. Should be far better than the factory unit.
    Layered felt would work best in my opinion. I tried many different packing materials and found low density felt the best by a long way.

    If you could print extension tubes to allow longer baffles to be fitted, you've struck gold.

    The position of the barrel in the silencer void doesn’t allow for many design types so far as I can see.

    3d printing is great but it also has physical limitations for printing. So sometimes you can come up with a design but it can’t be printed until it’s changed.

    Thanks I’ll get some thick felt and try it.

    I tend to make things I want and then offer them to others if they work.

    I may well look at an extended version later :thumb:

    Good work on this :thumb:

    I’ve got the UK Carbon, Russian made ‘Akula’ & also the Donny FL (extension).
    They are all an improvement on the factory baffle, (which is still good).

    Looking forward to the final results.
