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.

    Hay guys my new TX200 i have smells of oil every 3rd or 4th shot i put through it and you can see smoke after. She is a brand new gun out of the box and i have put less than i tin of pellets through it.

    I took it to a shoot over the weekend and i dont think the oil effected my shooting all the ones i messed were me and not the gun and i was also knocking targets over when i was smelling the oil.

    My question is this. Should i strip it down and clean? If i don't clean how long will it take to burn off all the oil?

    Dieseling, maybe a few hundred pellets and it will settle down, although the tx200 is very easy to strip down and work on apart from the stock its just the one bolt that holds the internals in.

    Wouldnt do it any harm but i would put a full tin on pellets through it first then decide if you wanto strip it.

    Best thing to do if the smoke is not going away would be to strip it and clean off all of the lubricants and re-do it with quality lubricants. While it is 'smoking' damage is being done because the smoke is the result of the excess lubricant being ignited and used as more power which is probably putting your gun over the legal limit. Sooner you sort it the better. Looks like when manufactured the lubricants were appiled way too liberally. Don't worry too much, it happens more often than people think.

    If its still under guarantee then I'd not strip it just yet, if its only a smell of oil and your point of aim doesn't really change then I'd ring the shop you bought it from, and keep using it if they ok it.

    Super easy to strip so i would preffer to strip it, i guess it needs lube cleaning/removing from the front of the piston seal.
    May aswell degrease and relube with quaility lubes.
    Ive only stripped the 12ftlb models they dont need a spring compressor as theres next to no preload. so all you need is 5mm,3mm allen keys a spanner and a small flat head screw driver to get all the internals out.

    FAC guns are just as easy. I have been know to be a bit liberal with the moly on the seal as well. After you have taken the TX apart a time or two, a job like too much moly takes less than 10 minutes to fix. Pull the piston and comp. tube, slide the piston out of the tube, pack 2 paper towels in the tube and twist to remove excess lube from the front end, wipe off piston seal face and put it back in the tube. Put the parts back in the gun and the smoke will be gone. The only fiddly part for me is the e-clip that holds the cocking link pin. It has a way of flying about if you're not careful on the removal part.
