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.

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    Hello chaps, like the title says I recently bought my first PCP which I must say shoots great and is nice and quiet on the business end but the thing that I'm not to pleased with is the twanging sound when taken a shot from the mag/loader or possible the valve chamber... Now my question is does any one else who ownes/owned a PCP have this issue? Is it just a case of put up and shut up? Or can the sound be treated and silenced/made quieter?

    The rifle in question is a at44-10.

    Also one other question: I'm interested in the bullpup stocks for this rifle, after much looking online at the pictures I'm now looking to possibly buy a kit but can't seem to find a UK seller... Can any one point me in the right direction?

    Thanks in advanced for any feed back and info.


    Cheers, Greg.

    noise

    All mechanical PCPS have some hammer noise Just depends on the gun and how New and serviced it is. The only guns I've had that are completely silent in that respect is my Daystate Mk4 as its all electric.

    Have a scan about for "Depingers".

    Sometimes the noise you hear is resonance from the reservoir, and can be countered with a lot of very simple fixes. Hope that helps! :up:

    On my ultra the hammer noise isn't too bad, a nice clean ping!

    Its the hammer bounce that irritates me!

    Some pcps just have a lot of resonance due to how they are built.

    It can also come from the hammer spring itself just like on a spring gun.

    If you have had the hammer out of the gun just study its design and Im sure you can make something
    It can be cured with something as simple as a delrin hammer spring guide, or some ptfe sheet wrapped around your hammer spring like a sleave to stop resonance, or a circular pad cut from ptfe on the end of your hammer or a delrin insert, lots of different hammers you see so I couldn't tell you what yours looks like.

    Cheers for the replies guys, I have had another look around the internet again and come across a post from a guy that mentions a de-twanger that sounds similar to as mentiond above so I'm going to further look into those but if that's a dead end then I think I'll just strip the gun down and take a look at the mechanism to see if I can find a solution my self.

    Cheers, Greg.
