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.

Lightweight High Volume Silencer

    After much experimenting and designing I came up with an effective baffle set for Hugget silencers which I've sold many to members on here.

    https://www.airgunforum.co.uk/commu...belita-baffle-sets.335404/page-2#post-3579524

    I've recently had a little time to be able to design a full silencer utilising the lessons learned and principles of my replacement Atom and Belita baffle sets. I wanted to build a silencer that was 1 effective, 2 compact, 3 light weight, 4 affordable.

    I think I'm there! It is fully 3d printed and can utilise designs that are not possible other than with this technology. They have multiple baffles, screw together and the first chamber is ported to the rear to reduce pressure carried forward.

    Image 14-07-2021 at 14.18.jpg Image 14-07-2021 at 14.17.jpg Image 14-07-2021 at 14.18 (1).jpg

    I considered carbon fibre or alloy for the tube but this adds significant cost for extra strength that just isn't needed. Unless you like smacking your gun on trees all the time! Airguns simply don't need heavy metal silencers that powder burners require.

    Each silencer takes around 9 hours to print so I'll be making these when I have time and offering them on this thread for those that want them.

    I've made three to start off, 1 each of matt, silk, textured. 0.22 cal and below.

    IMG_5940.jpeg IMG_5942.jpeg IMG_5943.jpeg


    They measure 40mm x 120mm approx. Have multiple baffles and include high density felt

    IMG_5947.jpeg IMG_5946.jpeg IMG_5948.jpeg

    I'm offering these for just £30 including postage (UK) PayPal F&F please. A similar metal silencer could cost you as much as £140 and they have pretty poor baffle designs in my opinion.

    If you must have a metal silencer then there are other forum members producing great kit, have a search :thumb:

    They haven't mate. If you want to buy one and try it I'm happy to refund you in full if it breaks.

    I would expect it to be ok, the baffle walls are quite thick and the entire silencer is deceptively strong. Let me know if you want a try.

    Is there anyway you'd be able to do a threading for the pistols with the odd fitting like the P226 or threaded glock ??

    If you let me know the thread you want I can look into it for you.

    I should be able to do different threads. I'd need a little time to alter the design thats all. No extra cost.

    Sorry for jumping in as i have made and tested these type of sound mod is all depends on the wall thickness, 3mm to 5mm wall thickness is ok for FAC air rifles. This is what i have found out. :thumb:

    Thanks for the heads up. I've beefed up the baffles even more. They were tough before, even more now :D

    Fair enough, I'm sure gazzago will send something suitable.
    Testing is part of the process

    I'm looking forward to reports from members who purchase these. Some of the offerings from 'the big boys' seem wildly over-priced so a maker who isn't out for every penny is a gift to us all. Well done, gazzago!
