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.

New battery

    Right after owning my Daystate mk4 a month or so, I found the battery needed replacing (no slight on the seller), I've been putting a lot of shots through it but nowhere near what Daystate say it should do.

    So last week I ordered a new battery from BAR, was unsure which to get so picked the middle priced one and payed but added my model and serial number. Day later I get a refund from BAR, £5.25 because I did order the wrong battery and needed the cheaper one. I got the battery late last week, well wrapped and paperwork inside with written on regarding refund and what Daystate advised, well played BAR and Daystate :up:

    Tonight was the night I decided to replace it.........I was nervous as heck. One bolt to take the stock off and wow wires and circuit board and THE battery....

    I looked at what was what and connected to what more to the point, the battery was held in place with Velcro so that came out easy and just two wires from the battery to a connector block, I un clipped that and it was out. I refitted the new battery in reverse, peeled Velcro of old battery stuck it on new battery connected the wire and stuck the Velcro to Velcro and was 30 seconds of a job.

    Refitted the stock and fastened the bolt, turn the rifle on with the key, flicked the safety on switch and there's power, couple of dry fires and it's back up and running phew :D

    maybe a dumb question but what exactly does the battery do on these fancy electronic daystates?
    you still have to put air in them so i am confused as to what the electrics are for ????

    Electronically controlled guns are a step too far for my liking, don't get me wrong I've fired one and it was wonderful but personally I prefer simple!

    Yes you still put air in it Andy :up:

    The battery powers the circuit board that controls the firing cycle, fps spread, power, setting options etc etc

    Steve I know what you mean, I'm into my rapids and are so easy to work on so this Daystate is a different beast

    The early electronic Daystates never had plug in batteries, the wires were soldered so changing batteries was a little more tricky.

    People shouldn't fear the electronics, i have a lit of Daystates many are electronic, i have had issues with some of mine but, never with the electronics.

    Even Daystate used to say that electronic issues with returned guns were very much a minority.
    As for the triggers, i love them, the guns are very clinical and almost boring to shoot but when on song they're superb.

    Still not convinced after many years of owning them, if they're actually worth the big price tag though?
    ;)

    Yes I read that the early electrics on the mk3 it was not a simple switch over and plug in. I read some had to change the full circuit board as a one to start again.

    From what I've seen of this mk4 it is very clinical and after been in two minds it's really growing on me, got the little mtc connect on top now but had to raise it with scope mount blocks for the mag to slide in

    My Mark 3 is currently in for a service and battery change, think the old dear could do with it! Superb guns for roost shooting due to the tiny noise made by the action, mouse goes clink and pigeon goes thud!

    Exactly how i felt when i got my first electronic Daystate mate, i think they're great guns, that's why i have so many, i don't necessarily think they're much better than other cheaper rifles, they're just very different as you well know.

    One of mine, a CDT Wolf which isn't technically regged, has only a 3 FPS spread over 10 shots, i think that's amazing, it's one of my favourite guns :up: ;)
