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.

    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.'

  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.

    If you can see a slight upward trend from max cylinder pressure to the peak try dropping the reg pressure a fraction. What is the pressure at 580fps? 95Bar? If so, I'm surprised to see it drop so quickly after it comes off reg but I'm not conversant with Lane regs, if that's what it is. Or is it coming off reg in the mid 570s and then climbing to 580 peak? If the latter, the reg pressure is definitely set too high.

    If you're running between 565-577 I'd hardly call 580 a "proper" spike you'd be very lucky to do an exact alteration to totally get rid of a couple of fps. It drops nicely from 580 the same as my two Lane ones, nothing wrong there at all.

    To be honest, I’m as pleased as punch with the figures. Every time I make an alteration I have to take the gun to bits so I’m very happy to leave it at that. The rifle is superbly accurate for at least 80 shots from a 200bar charge. I can’t thank @BallisticBill and @sagalout enough for their links and info and thanks to @Bezzer for your input :thumb:

    How do you change the reg pressure? Do you now know whose reg it is? The only reason I ask is mine is adjusted by removing the fill valve assembly, which is a 5 min job. Just interested to add to the "knowledge bank".

    The reg is a Tench job Bill. To adjust it I have to remove the cylinder from the rifle and then remove the reg from the cylinder.
    Adjust the reg then re-insert with the spacer. Then re-attach the cylinder and re-charge to more than reg pressure. It’s a pain in the bum.

    :eek:
    I'd do the same!
    It's probably too early to ask the big question now, but I will anyway... would you change it back to original spec? ;)

    Not now, although that’s what I was thinking when I first started with it.
    I’m going down to the club with it tomorrow to put a tin of pellets through it.
    One thing that still bothers me is that it twangs like it’s calling me to church.
    I wonder if a sleeve inside the hammer spring would help.

    I’ll do a pic tomorrow at the range Vic, but it just looks like an Ultimate Sporter in a Laminate stock.
