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 there. I bought my ultra of here about a month ago. When i met the chap to pick it up he stated that it he had chronoed it a little while ago at 11lb. I've been happy with it and last weekend I took it to a target range where I chronoed it and it's only putting out 8.5lb. I went into my local shop that sells guns (they are not a gunsmith's ) to ask there opinion and he said that it could be a cadet ultra and these where designed to only put out 8.5lb. So I have a few questions. 1. can a rifle lose power this quickly ? 2. Is it true that there are two diffrent powered ultra's ? 3. Is there anything I could do ( dont want to go past 12lb as i haven't got a fire arms license) and would anybody have any idea of the cost of putting it into a gunsmiths and having it's power returned to what it should be ?

    thanks

    1.I dont think a rifle could lose as much power as that so quickly .
    2. To be honest im not sure :eek:
    3.Take your gun to your gunsmith and see if they can put the power up to 11.5 . I wouldnt mess about with it if you dont have a firearms licence:down:
    + There is a chance that this guy could of scammed you ( which i hope he hasnt ) and contacting the police if this is true would be a wise choice as it is fraud!

    Police would probably say there is nothing they can do as it is a civil dispute;).
    upping the power is easy,bsa are setting all guns up at 10ft with bisley manum's.
    losing power is so easy any way,you can put it back up your self but i recommend you get a chrono for home 1st,then go bsa owner's,just google bsaog then find the exploded diagram.
    Basicly a thin washer behind the spring will put it back up,or try adjusting the valve power adjuster,there is striping guide's on there as well.

    To bsa this will be classed as a service and you will be charged 75+rediculous

    I've had my Ultra regged by Tench. Nice chap though his dogs aren't overly friendly :p. The Ultra has a power adjuster but it's hidden under a mound of glue. Send it to Tench for a reg and he'll also set it to 11.5 ft/lb on bismags for you. It'll then do about 60 shots in .177 and more in .22. Considering the price of a Tench reg and the fact it's external rather than internal and hogging airspace I'd not send it to John Bowkett.
