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.

    Forget fast flow first off will turn t to s**t# if sub 12

    No need for a regulator neither won't fit mk1 if original mk1 would need excessive portwork ect and tbh the mk1 original dosnt need onto be consistent just fill to no higher than 170-180 bar as for bigger shot count surely you can't need more

    As for valve ect if not leaking why bother won't change any thing

    Rapids are a minefield very easy to get carried away if shooting straight just enjoy it or what It is once it develops a leak then worry about a new valves ect hth Dave G

    If you fit a reg then you don't need a fast flow, the reg is a good idea, but the valve block needs machining accurately to make it work. As Dave said, if it all works well why change it?

    If you have to do all that, speak to KevG on here, he is a Rapid expert of the highest order. He serviced mine, replaced the valve, put in a de pinger, all for under £100.

    The best mod you could make is to fit one of Dr. Bob's quickfills - you need to take the filler valve off the bottle then screw the quickfill in its place. You never have to worry about the bottle valve leaking again! The quickfill uses the same adaptor as Daystate to fit ot the filling line - very, very easy. Makes filling a simple plug and play affair - and it has a gauge on it so you have an idea of how much air is in the tank - still only fill to 175bar though.

    With properly balanced springs in a standard Mk1 you should be able to get 200 shots per sweet spot (175 - 110)

    If you don't want to spend £130 and the buddy bottle moving forward with the Dr Bob QF then you can use the Best Fittings QF for £30 but it doesn't have a gauge fitted (2 available types - block pre-blanking plug & block post blanking plug).

    Both Dr Bob & BF QF's require your stock to be modified but they mean you don't have to remove the bottle for filling.
