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.

    thaught id start a little project diary for my 95 so i can look back when its done

    i got the 95k in september 2013 new from ron daily airguns in barnsley, my first gun to get me into the sport of hft

    after shooting a few tins of pellets i gave the 95 to a club member for a strip and relube to try eliminate some twang, and the twang was reduced and the whole rifle was a whole lot smoother, this got me thinking' how much better could it be with a tuning kit:D

    so we have begun...

    as you may have seen in another topic i have a welsh willy kit on order:D:D but with me been a tinkerer i coudent just fit a kit, so far i have on order the ww tuning kit, a hw98 barrel that im importing from germany, some ptft sheet to make a piston liner and tomorrow i am sending my piston off for buttoning:up:

    in order to send the piston off i need to strip the rifle, never ever been inside a rifle before, only removed the stock once:eek:so off to youtube.

    i found a video showing how to strip it, it was 4.5mins long, followed it and got the 95stripped in 4.5mins, wow that was so easy to strip

    95k.jpg so this is how it looked when i started

    fast forward 4.5mins and i now have a pile of parts

    95k stripped.jpg

    hopefully the next update will be with a shiny buttoned piston:up:

    Do you mind me asking where you're having the buttoning done and how much it's costing you?

    Thanks for the thread speed!

    This is gold to me as I plan to take my 95 apart soon so I can get a tuning kit (unsure on what one yet) and what ever other little improvements my very limited tinkering skills allow me. :D

    the cocking shoe may need some work! mine rubbed against the piston liner and i had to take it back about a mm in thickness off the bottom which was tedious! i used a piece of dowel the same circumference as the inside of the piston wrapped in 250 grit wet and dry and just started rubbing the base of the shoe till when fitted in the cylinder slot and didnt rub the liner then polished it with some 400 grit and 600 grit wet and dry.

    barrel

    i was not expecting to update so soon but my barrel came from germany today,it as delivered on the 3rd working day after ordering:), delivered to my door may i add, no messing about with rfd's

    IMG_2216.jpg IMG_2215.jpg

    i weighed the parts incase anyone was interested

    the 95 barrel 700g
    95 b + silencer 840g
    98 barrel 1280g

    so the total weight gain is 440g so that weight should kill the muzzle flip for sure, and unless my eyes are playing tricks the riffling is not as deep at the 95's, match barrel maybe? my ev2 barrel has shallow riffling

    half a dozen patches in the pull thru to get rid of the transit grease/oil crap and its ready for fitting

    should be hardly any muzzle flip when its all done with that barrel!
    with the extra weight of the shroud i added and the 100grams of weight added to the mod internally heres a vid of mine shooting with a pellet balanced on the mod... the rifle balances really well with the extra weight.

    i hope not mark, they say the 177 is more prone to flip, yours looks nice and steady in the vid

    i aslo added weight into the silencer 200g lead filled socket but i dont know of it was clipping or what but my zero dropped about 2" so re zerod then after 5 shots it was a few inch low again so i took it off

    thats why I went for the. 22 its a bit softer to start with. point of impact will drop if you add weight because of the reduced muzzle flip not sure why yours dropped twice? was the weight secure in the mod? could have been clipping? or may have been to much weight to far forward causing the barrel to partially open under recoil maybe?

    yas it was nice and tight in the mod, i used tape to shim the weight and make a tight fit and it had a 7mm hole down the centre

    not much to report on the 95, i only have a stock, trigger and barrel atm, im just waiting for parts to come back,

    i did however polish my cocking shoe, when people mention polishing how far do they go? ive gone for a mirror polish, im going to do the same for the piston and cocking slot...

    nice one:up: just watch that cocking shoe doesnt foul the ptfe piston sleeve, it may need taking back a little. mine needed about 1mm sanded off.
    i wrapped a sheet of 250 grit wet and dry round a broom handle and worked it down then polished with 400 and 800 grit

    still waiting for my welsh willy kit:( its been 20 working days

    everything is lined up all clean and polished ready to be re fitted, (i did need to take abit off the shoe mark)

    i have on order a jack pyke sling and barrel band/stud, i was not going to bother with a sling but the extra 1/2 kg on the barrel and the fact i did 3 hours last night carrying a rapid 7 round fields with no sling soon changed my mind
