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.

    Thank you.

    '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.

    Not concentrating. This'll teach me to set up properly! Saw a thread somewhere on Chrony F1 spares but can't find it. Any pointers? Luckily ive only smashed the rearwards upwards facing lense and not the display or worse. Thats the end of testing for a while then!
    Thanks in advance for any help. IGK

    I had one in my twenties it was yellow and never shot it, but I lent it to a friend last year. When it was returned it was greed and shiny, he had done the same as you.
    Moving forward by a month I shot my new one but only smashed the back plastic housing. I was able to fix it as a friend is a plastics engineer. But someone will point you in the right direction, good luck in repairing it.

    It was a while ago, but I bought some bits direct from the states, when I serviced mine, I don't know of any UK spares stockists but someone else probably will.

    Bet it's a damn sight easier to use an F1 on co2 pistols such as the TFW/ SIg P226 etc, on fullbore, archery, catapults, pretty much anything you want to know the speed of, plus you can use it down range too...

    OP - once it's sorted a couple of thick bits of clear acrylic can prevent future "issues"! :p

    This is why I bought the CED M2 - it is a similar concept to the F1, but every part is available seperately, and it seems to be a better chronoscope, it works inmore variable conditions than my old F1. For downrange testing, especially at 50 yards, it is a godsend having the bigger sensor windows. A Skan is the best, but I can't hit the window at 50 yards AND go through the tunnel...the pellet drops an inch going through the machine at that range! YEP - clouted the inside of the magic box! So back to the CED M2 it is for me.

    Nice to know you can get spares cheap enough for your red one.

    I can't complain. Chrony had the bits in my hand in three days from Canada! Fitted in 3 mins and all working. Top marks to Chrony! IGK
