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.

    Do you want to use a springer or PCP? would be the first question. Is it the same calibre? If not then do you want to change calibres.

    In terms of performance, they are both great guns - it comes down to pcp or springer and what YOU want to shoot with.

    cheers

    Go for it, you can always sell it on and buy a tx easily with the money from it (assuming it's in good nic)

    80shots in .22 is a bit optimistic, 60 consistent ones I'd say max

    Well he got back to me today and said it was a 177 but after sleeping on it i politely refused the swap as i knew i would have regretted it. Anyway to my next question after what seems a lifetime of finding the right pellet for the gun i was wondering if i got the rifle tuned would this affect the accuracy of its preferred pellet atm. Or is it just down to it been the preferred pellet for the barrel

    I question I'd like to know, my assumption is that lock time is the only thing that would/could affect it?
    someone will know

    Springers are so rewarding to shoot, ideally you need both PCP and springer, but if you had to have one, springer! IMO

    The way the energy is delivered to the pellet, has a marked effect on its accuracy.

    Getting someone to tune your rifle, may mean it ends up with a firing cycle that does not suit you ?

    Learning to strip and tune your own rifle is the way forward, to getting the rifle shooting how you like it.

    No its preferd pellet will always be its preferd pellet only time this would be affected from a tune is if you was going from sub 12 to fac or vice versa then alot of the time it will still like the preferd pellet just some pellets accuracy can fail at long distances if too puch speed is incoured

    my tx shoots accurately but i don't like the twang and think it could shoot better my mate has a standard tx nealy new that shoots way smoother than mine so i might just get one of tinbum,s kits and replace the seals just to make it abit sweeter

    Thats it in a nutshell! Get the gun apart and start making changes, take note of what the effect is and change again til you get it right. The TX is so quick and easy to strip you'll soon have some very impressive results.

    I might know where you could get a decent tuning kit for not much money too..............:cool:
