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.

    look what turned up today

    IMG_2278.jpg
    i knew it would turn up as soon as i put the std spring back in,

    so i swapped the spring with the ww kit and the smallest power band/spacer, first few shots and wow it had a massive kick on it, chronod it to 9.5ftlb, stripped it back and took the smallest ring out and put the larger one in, its running at 10.8ftlb now and a bit softer recoil, i dont know if its got less kick that the std spring tho:confused: but i havent put many shots thru it yet as times tight today,

    going to nip to the club tomorrow for a hour and bang a few 100 shots thru it, re chrono it and try get a zero sorted as it will be the only time i can spare till saturday for the comp

    i weighed the complete setup and its bang on 4.65kg not a bad weight

    just had a few test shots to bed the ww kit in a bit, if feels alittle harsher on recoil and the fps spread is massive goes from 10.2 to 10.9 to 10,5 then 10.4 ftlb

    i got a rough zero at the range so i can use it saturday for the comp then see if it settles if not looks like im going to put the std spring back in a it feels softer and only had a 1fps difference in 5 shots

    been shooting 5 shots between each job thru out the day at work, it does feel softer on the recoil, ran a 10 shot string over the crony and got a 14fps spread.

    i can rest a pellet on the top scope turret and it will just scoot forward 6mm ish, will run another fps string after 500 pellets

    i kept the standard spring in mine as was very consistent from standard right out the box (around 3 fps spread) they can take a while to settle down with so many new tighter fitting parts, re greasing needs to be done very sparingly around the piston seal. i coated the inside of the cylinder with a thin layer of moly on a rag wrapped around a dowel and then all but wiped it out till the rag came out clean. tiniest blob of moly on the fingertip wiped carefully around the piston seal sides getting none on the seal face and a very very thin coat of moly around the piston to protect it from corrosion followed by a little dollop on the buttons before re fitting into the cylinder.
    about 100 shots later it had settled down to 3 fps spread again. had a few random high readings possible dieseling at first?
    with the tighter fitting components the power will drop a bit but should creep back up again as it beds in so keep an eye on it.
    how did you find the ww kit? what was the fit like with the spring and guides? was the spring guide a tight fit? or easy push fit?... does it fit the standard spring?

    i used moly dry slide on the cylinder/outer piston(small amount) and some at the botton of the piston round the buttons then lt2 on the spring.

    the ww kit spring was alot shorter that the std spring, only got 1/4" preload with the medium power band spacer, i can remove the trigger block by hand to release the spring, the guide was a snug fit, not tight that i really had to push to get it on but it wont fall out if i wiggled the spring upside down

    i think ive got 200 ish shots thru it over the last few days, just shooting at a bag of sand (very boring:() and i think its settling down, there is a short sharp thud for recoil which is less than it was before, ran a 12shot string last night and got 9fps spread which im more than happy with sub 10 fps, so I'm going to keep running pellets thru it see what its like after 2000 or so, im sure it will be fine

    one thing i have noticed is the 4.52 air arms fields are pretty tight fit in the new 98 barrel so when i was originally shooting a string i probs wasn't seating the pellet the same every time, i think the 4.50s will be a better fit for this barrel but i still have 6 tins of 4.52s to get thru

    the project continues....

    the 95 has bedded in nicely now and everyone i shoot with comments on how smooth it is:D

    i shot the british recoil championship earlier this month and as an experiment i shot on x4 mag and some how managed to get 21 shooting sft

    so after feeling good about shooting on 4x mag i decided a 4x32 scope was the way to go for the upcoming nefta hunter series, a trip to redbeck was in order for the scope and to fill my air tank

    View attachment 94691

    the weight felt good, i could see from 3yard out clear as a bell but i really struggled with the 35+ yard targets so after 2 rounds of the course i decided to put my hawke panorama back on

    so the next project is to make a stock with a deeper fore end hopfully ready for the hft season
    i satarted off with a lump of pine to make a prototype and just to see if i could do the in leting of the action and this is what i ended up with

    View attachment 94692 View attachment 94693

    its not fully sanded etc but i just wanted to see if i could get it to a rough shape (the pine was not deep enough to get the full but out of it thats why there is a corner missing)

    tmorrow a slab of beech is going to land on my doorstep so ive got to try do it all again and get it sanded up and finished, i will update pics a s i go

    Nice job........did you use a router to inlet the stock. If so, what size half round cutter did you use for the cylinder bit?

    yes i used a router

    the bottom of the inlet is flat so i used a flat cutter down the centre first then a iirc 18mm cove bit from each side to get the curve.
    there is not really that much curve to deal with was most of material needs removing for the cocking linkages, trigger housing, mounting plates etc

    i got the beech, its big enough for 2 stocks so just incase i mess one up i have another shot

    bit more progress on the stock.
    started shaping it, its roughly how i wasnt it, I've just started sanding the scars out that was left by the rasp

    View attachment 94958 View attachment 94954 View attachment 94955 View attachment 94956 View attachment 94957

    for the stock, leave it smooth, try chequering? stipple it?
    i really fancy full stippling like sheffield custom stocks do, but looks like hard work


    ive got about 8 days work to cram into next week and next weekens is nefta classic so 2days of hardcore field target with 80 silhouettes to shoot:eek: so dont know how much time i will get to spend sanding
