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.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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.

    Picked up my first EVER PCP today, I've got a BSA Ultra, and after a long deliberation I've stuck with.177, it's gonna be my main ratting gun so I thought I'd stick with this caliber as I find it the best for me and gonna try some RWS hobby's for close range.

    The JSB exacts that my TX loves so much seem to be not so good in this barrel so looks like I'm pellet testing this weekend!!!!

    I got a cracking deal from redbeck, and the help they gave, considering I've only pulled a PCP trigger once in 20 years of shooting, was outstanding!!!! Still not looking forward to the first fill, I may get someone at the club to do it for me.... Haha....

    Anyway I'll stop rambling now and show some pics, incidentally, my MWSS silencer I took off my TX fits perfectly, but not as quiet as some I've heard so may need to look at this in the future....

    Any help you can give on success rates with pellet selection would be much appreciated.

    hi jay, nice rifle mate, and congrats on choosing the right cal !
    bsa barrels are notoriously pellet fussy, and no more so than the .177 ultra. if you want to call round with your kit, we will give you a selection of pellets that i'm sure will be ok, and we will go through filling it with you.

    1) Filling, make sure the probe is tightly on the line, the line is on the din adaptor that screws in the bottle tightly and that the adaptor is tightly in the filling bottle!

    2) Place probe into filling port on gun and make sure it is securely seated.

    3) Check bleed valve on bottle is done up tightly.

    4) Open valve very slowly. You will hear it hiss, then click, this is the valve on the gun opening to let the air in!

    5) Keep an eye on that filling gauge, aim to fill to about 210 bar.

    6) Close the valve quickly.

    7) Open bleed valve.

    8) Remove probe from gun.

    All done, oh as for pellets Try Crosman Premier Ultra Magnums!

    A basic rule of thumb with some BSA 177 barrels is hard and heavie pellets like Bisley magnums or the ultramagnums like Mole said.

    It's gonna be mostly ratting with the club and target shooting in second place.
    I've always been (and still am really) a die hard springer fan I love the sound, the feel, the recoil and moreover I feel proud if I get a good grouping!!
    The BSA, although a lovely piece of engineering, was purchased as a tool and as such I hope it does it's job.
    The TX is a joy to shoot but when you've been out a few hours it tends to make my arms ache a bit.
    I've always said the PCP rifles feel sterile and no soul inside them....... Time will tell if this is the case or maybe I'll be eating my words and swallowing a lot of pride!!!

    Hi mate nice choice , have just bought one myself the mcc version ... I've used acupell and seem sweet for me being a novice got some good shots in from the start. I have the Hw silencer and it's spot on next to no noise at all so could be a good choice . Let us all know how you get on with the pellet test as buying tins gets expensive only to find they are crap...Milbro Caledonian being one tin will never be buying again three different guns all over the place.
    good luck and it will seem strange that's there no kick back!

    Hi Jamie. Great gun choice, and for hunting or target it will do the business, just keep off those bottles of baileys while you are using it. Atb Paul.
