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.

    So I took the lgv to the range today to have a proper play with it now it has been returned from its trip to Enfield sports (a whole other story - there's a 11 page thread here somewhere)

    It started off OK seemed nice and smooth and was quickly zeroed and hitting 10mm spinners at 50 yards no problem.

    Then it started to diesel and was flinging pellets everywhere.

    So I took it home and opened it up and it was full of grease and I've just spent the last hour cleaning it and relubing it.

    It was worse than a cheap Chinese gun.

    So I think I have worked out what the Enfield sports tuning kit is :
    DSC_2061.JPG
    Pot of grease and 3 washers.

    To think it took nearly 9 months to fill it full of grease and pack a couple of washers into it.......i think the gunsmith took a few tips from where he used to work at sandwell fieldsports and is carrying on the grease stuffing in his new job.

    At least he hasn't broken anything, once the shroud is sorted it will be a good gun

    Just asking but if you didn't like SFS before why did you get a chap who used to work there to tune this one or didn't you know at the time?

    I had him do an lgu before when he was at sandwell and it was great, not like some of the stuff I have seen from there when they have been filled with grease. So I trusted him to do a good job but it turns out it was a longer wait than at sandwell and it now looks like main culprit for stuffing guns full of grease does not work at sandwell anymore

    I must admit I have never seen a SFS tuned rifle filled with grease but I do know a chap who said they did it with his 97 a while ago, he showed me some pictures on his phone.

    I find that level of incompetence hard to stomach from a “professional” gunsmith,I wonder how many poor sods are out there with guns “tuned” by him and no doubt well charged for the dubious skills on show here.There is a lot to be said for if you want it done well do it yourself or get one of the respected guys off here to do the work where their reputations are beyond reproach.

    I've seen a couple packed with grease, Tony has always said they don't do it but based on my experience with the lgv I think it is the same person who probably did the same to some of the guns that were tuned at sandwell.

    Well I know what I would have done in the first debacle that unfolded on here,, now after seeing this bodge and scarper hack job it would not only have been deserved, but warranted a follow up visit.

    If you wanted a cowboy outfit you should have asked Wild Bill,, I'm pretty sure he would have recommended a better source than enfield sports.

    to think the name Enfield" at one time meant so much more than re-branded chinese rubbish and clowns pretending to be gunsmiths.
