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.

    the chain lube stuff i was on about comes in an aerosol, sprays out very thin but dries to a very sticky thick white grease

    had a bit of a problem lost about a foot lb when a stripped and fettled again. fitted the extra washer and got it back up to 11.5 but can't say much else the twang is gone cause the spring guide is a real tight fit.

    I bought a tin of said white sprayeee hunt. haven't tried it yet. ill look tomorrow and see what happens.

    ill keep you all informed. the original venom tunes didn't use lithium grease they use used moly grease. I've a load of that i may try it and see what happens i expect the power to increase but may get more grease movement than the white gunk. well see have a chromo so will be happy with a consistent reading than close to the limit. I should have left alone as it was fine. i get bored easily.

    if the guides are to tight it does make them very quiet but sucks power. better to have the correct fit (snug easy push fit) and the tiniest hint of twang than have to add washers imo

    Ok I can confirm the venom white gunk is not the same as the spray on stuff. the spray lithium grease is a thinner viscosity thie stuff on my was really thick and dry. Ive cleaned and relubed with white lithium but it is noisier in the spring dept it was a gentle thub before. now a little twang i may just relube next time and use moly which is thicker

    I am not unhappy with it far from it just i love to tinker

    Ok mystery solved. the white gunk aint grease at all. its a tackier to stick the grease. After trying lithium Grease a couple of shots sprayed the stuff every where inside the gun. it was a mess. Moly is thicker so just moly now on the spring. its fine.

    Attached is an article by steve pope and V maching for those interested.

    The only thing this has in common with the white stuff tuners use is the colour. Lythium grease should be avoided as it diesels very easily if it finds it's way into the compression tube.

    Castrol chain wax is the one you want for the spring, let it dry for a couple of hours prior to assembling the rifle.

    Wonkey, is the Castrol chain wax easily available or would I struggle to find it?
