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.

    To clear this text box, click on the 'X' in the top right-hand corner.

    Come to the conclusion though that the shroud needs to be longer to quiet it down a bit more!.

    Its all the leftovers from my first FX typhoon + a few extras bits.
    Ive test shot it over the chrono and over 20mtrs.

    We have a 22cm (8.5") .177 barrel (from a crosman 1760) in a silenced shroud
    Rifle is 75cms (29") overall length
    260mps (853fps) using 7.9gr crossman pellets giving 12.7ftpounds.

    Had 21 shots from 262mps down to 258mps
    Then 10 shots from 257 down to 240mps
    The 'O' ring on the pellet probe is split and you can feel air leaking from it, so that needs sorting.(been sorted now!)

    Out to 20mtrs its giving 12mm 5 shot groups, but hopfully with other pellets this could improve.

    When I was in school I used to fill about 2 pages each day with gun doodles, pictures of guns, I'm gun mad :eek:

    I look at air rifles out there and there's always something I'd change about a gun, so designing them would be the best thing for me :up:

    were they futeristic ones or old fasion.

    the hard bit is drwing the insides and the action.
    the recoil system like on a machine gun is what got me but i'm trash at art.

    told me to draw a cake and it looked like a house:D
    no joke:eek:

    the hard part is designing it so it wont clog up with dust and work in all coditions despite the abuse they get.

    also designing it so the recoil goes back into the shoulder and not flip uplike an MP5 or AK-47

    M4 has a good basic design thats quite reliable

    Yeah, it's a popular gun, the SA80 wasn't designed for the desert so it jams all the time, it's too open because it was designed for urban environments such as northern Ireland, atleast the A2 model is made by Germans, now it works!
