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.

My Kwc Colt 1911 Tac Pistol

    After being ripped off by @Terry Davis (a now banned member) I have managed to fix my 1911. First of all the magazine was knackered. @flatrajectory kindly sent me some replacement Viton o-rings for the magazine and once fitted it is working a treat now. But the slide was still causing problems and stuck back on lock open 2 out of 3 times. So after some stripping and googling and watching youtube vids and some useful info from the co2 pistol fraternity on here I managed to install a new recoil cylinder and spring.

    The parts came today and I spent ten minutes fitting the kit, relubing with my favourite gun oil (it's best smelling oil ever:))

    Did a function test and all seemed great. Tested it with a new co2 cylinder and I am most pleased with the results. The blowback is powerful and the pistol is great to shoot and it no longer leaks or locks back when it shouldn't.

    I really like it. Cracking pistol.

    Thanks to all for their help with this.

    That's good news there buddy, they're an underrated, often overlooked fun gun, I just love my Remington 1911 RAC.

    Just out of curiosity where did you source the recoil cylinder & spring from (handy to know for future reference) ?

    I’ve only just seen this, I need to open my eyes a bit more. I have an Airsoft 1911 made by SocomGear and I have a similar problem, when the last shot is fired the slide hold open works as it should but the nozzle housing stays stuck in the forward position, I don’t thing the return spring is man enough and the piston seal inside is a bit tight, loads of kit available in the US but not so much this side of the pond. The suppliers I have found here all have the parts I need but are all out of stock! Very frustrating. Glad you got yours sorted Bill :)

    Have you tried lubing the nozzle with some silicon spray?

    I hadn't thought of that to be honest, I did smear it with airgun lube but I have got some silicone oil, the stuff they use in remote control buggy shock absorbers. ;)

    As you know Bill, I had the same problem & replaced the recoil cylinder & spring on my Gletcher 1911... When they are working properly, these 1911's are one of the best full blowback replica pistols... Such a satisfying kick to them!
    Glad you got yours back up to form...
    Happy shooting!

    When I strip clean and my Remington 1911 Gary, I always put a dab of Abbey silicone gun grease on the nozzle then wipe off, I also wipe over all the parts with gun spray oil.

    Yeh,

    It's not unusual for the nozzles to get sticky and not return - it's a weak spring from the off.

    If you take the finish right off and polish, these will actually "blue"
    However (I know this sounds odd) don't use blue, use something like Birchwood Casey Aluminium black. It will actually take to the surface.

    You saying this Gary, the barrel on mine had jammed when I picked it up, don't ask me why, but the only way I could free it was to strip it by taken the front off where you turn to release the spring, (see pic 3rd up from bottom), has I couldn't cock it, sorted when put back

    Sometimes, they can jam due to the barrel / slide locking lugs. They'll generally bed in as used though.
