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.

    Hi idiot newbie here. I just got a Cybergun Desert Eagle KG-53H and I am having trouble loading the co2 into it. I lost two cans of 12gram co2 :mad: The problem is the first time I turned the cap thing too far and the co2 sprayed out. The second one I could hear it hissing after I loaded it so I loosened it and again lost a lot of co2. Any advice for loading the co2 so I don't lose it all :confused:
    Thanks in advance sorry if someone already posted this :D:D

    I'm not entirely sure if the hissing is supposed to happen, although every design of air pistol is different.

    A friend of mine has a co2 CP99 which doesn't hiss at all whilst being loaded.

    It says in the manual "when pressure starts increasing in the magazine (expansion of the CO2 in the magazine can be heard), finishing screwing rapidly." No joke that is what it says exactly so you can see how I am confused :D

    It may leak as you're screwing it in, that's normal, but once the CO2 is in place and ready to go there should be no noise heard. If there is, then the seals are leaking I should think :up:

    Over time CO2 guns get worn, so after a while it might start to leak - this is when you need new seals. The time it takes to start leaking varies depending on the quality of the gun and how much you use it, my CO2 pistol lasted about 2000-4000 shots, by this time I was bored of it and sold it.

    Hope this helps on some level,

    James.

    try cocking the gun first so the probe is sealed then try loading a capsule.

    (make sure you take the pellets out when you cock it)

    Thanks for all the advise:D

    I think the hissing is coming from a hole in the screw cap (or whatever it's called) at the bottom of the magazine. Here is a picture of it [​IMG] So with that hole in it do you think the hissing is normal or do I need to screw it in more :confused: The first time I put one in I think I screwed it in more and thats when a load of co2 came flying out.
    Thanks again for all the help:up:

    Oh wait I just realised this is an airGUN forum and my pistol is only a 1 joule airsoft. Am I in the wrong forum:confused:

    Nah, you're not in the wrong place.

    I think I can speak on behalf of 99% of the members of this forum in saying that they don't mind helping anyone, with any kind of weapon/firearm/airsoft/airgun.

    You'll find a right mixture of different experience on here, although it is slightly air rifle biased as that was the original idea.

    Cool thanks:up:

    I think the problem is I just don't screw in the co2 enough so I will try screwing it in more when I buy some co2 (I ran out:mad:)

    Thanks again for everything:D
