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 BSA Ultra problems

    Hi,
    Had my new BSA Ultra SE multishot for a couple of weeks and went shooting this morning, for the first time, to zero the new scope but I'm having lots of problems with pellets getting jammed in the magazine and then having to pull the mag out with some force, the pellet is squashed sideways. It's usually but not always no. 3 pellet.

    Then it got worse, the bolt suddenly went floppy, it would pull back and cock the trigger but would just spin round and when fired it would just pop back out.

    I returned the gun back to the shop and they are going to send it back to BSA.

    Anyone come across these issues before.

    Sounds like the Allen bolt on the cocking arm came loose, I had problems with my new Ultra SE in .177, It would not load many brands of pellets without jamming the magazine, I had to remove the mag every shot and refit it!

    I've just had it back from being blueprinted by John Bowkett, not suggesting that you should adopt such an extreme solution.... it's just something I do when I buy a BSA.

    The blueprint has cured the problem anyway!

    My R10 will not feed many pellets properly but fortunately it is flawless with aa fields and bismags which are the most accurate pellets in it anyway . hope you get yours sorted , rich.

    No mention of the pellets used as this could be a contributing issue ... :confused:

    RWS hobby sportline, JSB exact 4.52 and AA field diablo 4.52.

    All get jammed but I was using the RWS hobbys at the time.

    "Short" pellets are favourites for jamming, do not always engage oring and will tilt backwards when mag rotates. More so if rifle points up

    I have one in .22, I was advised by the shop I bought it from to 'flick' the magazine after i drop each pellet in, ie push pellet in mag' then just use my thumb to roll back the drum a fraction and let it go, repeat this until mag' is full, it seems to settle them in place. Mine has only played up once and that was down to me, I currently use aa fields.

    Thanks for the info, I heard that tip on a youtube video but it didn't make any difference for me, it still jammed.

    Regular JSB Exacts should work in .177 so it seems that you have some sort of issue with your magazine. The bolt handle bolt probably came loose because of your magazine problems. The only pellet I've had problems with is JSB Exact RS in .177, they deform and jam the magazine.

    I had a slight problem with my 2nd hand 2.2. I found the spring I the magazine was too weak and didn't cleanly rotate. This resulted in the odd problem pushing the probe back forward after cocking. I took the mag to pieces and rotated the spring an extra turn to increase the tension. It's been faultless and smooth ever since.

    Hmmm! I'll have a look at that when I get it back.

    One solution on another thread is to buy a third party magazine which is supposed to be problem free but I don't want to have to spend the money when the BSA one should work.

    As above, if you load from the other side, it will not jam. Quite easy after a bit of practice
