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.

    '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.'

  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 Rifle Hates Me

    So having a few hours at work to day spare due to IT issues I decided to take my normally super accurate DS Wolverine MK Cy Type out for a spin. Unfortunately it did not want to play nicely. The rifle has turned in to a shot gun normally it’s tac driving. I took the moderator of just in case the pellets were clipping nope no change. Checked the power nope still the same with zero change at all. Checked the pellets which it normally shots nope not that. Checked the fill level nope spot on the SWP. Cleaned the barrel several times nope not that. Used the single shot tray nope not that. Checked the barrel nope tight as it has always been. Checked the zero well sort of as it’s now a shot gun.

    Now I’m baffled as hell and can say I’ve given up as I’m away up north for the week end.

    Any ideas would be most welcome I’d like to say the rifle has had a hard life but it has not it’s one of the best rifles I have and I have a fair few I’m leaning towards the wife who being an evil witch may have cursed it.

    I was shooting at 25 Meters

    Have you opened a new, tin of pellets by chance ? Maybe a different batch number perhaps.
    Does the probe, have a o ring on it, maybe that needs to be changed if it has one. If its split that would cause shot gun effect. To check , cock the gun , place a piece of toilet roll on the breach block, if it moves, that's your problem. Use something, to keep the gun level.

    Did you just check the power with one shot or did you do a string to check the fps spread?

    This exact thing happened with the exact same gun to my mate.
    He slipped with his rifle and the barrel hit the floor...not hard and the ground was soft but it knocked something out...either the barrel or the shroud, I cant remember.
    It didnt take much of a knock so maybe this has happened to yours?
    Worth taking the shroud and barrel off and checking.

    Knocking the barrel.out a little will only shift poi, not cause it shotgun pattern. Unless it's loose and waving around as you fire.
