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.

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.

    alright chaps, this is for the guys that are into upgrading there crosman ratcatcher 2250,s
    Ive setted on the idea of getting a 2250, and I want to start upgrading it right of the bat so a few questions for you.
    I am going straight for a HPA mod that's no drama, 24in barrel, can you tell me if the custom stock adapter/power adjuster is any good
    compared to a dedicated power adjuster? can maybe you guys run me through the bits I need to order to get the best from this rifle?
    many thanks
    G

    Just bought the 2250xl mentioned above and it's great. Didn't realise it was 10ftlb though, thought it would have been around 8?

    You won't want or need a 24" barrel on HPA. I had a Ratty on the std 14" barrel on HPA at 11.3ft/lb

    I take it these are just as easy to convert to pcp, and do the other bits of modding too, im sceptical that it comes straight out the box hunting ready
    (I am buying this as a pack gun, with rabbits being the main quarry)

    My advice.

    If you want to do much more than add a steel breach then a crosman is a bad choice.
    Endless mods , endless money pit and ultimately still a crosman.

    Better to mod an old falcon pistol or a brocock as all you need is a stock and power adjustment and you have a cheap gun that will p**s all over a ratty unless you spend several times the cost and swap pretty much everything .

    OK now my heads spinning, yeah I looked at the XL everyone that's selling it I have found states its 8flb, the 10flb stated must be a lucky one lol, anyway that's no good for me,
    I recently sold my elite because im skint, and being bushcrafter I need a pack gun to hunt rabbits with.
    Is it much more difficult to up grade like above

    the only way to convert a 2250 to air without using a remote hose or fitting a xs79 gas block and paintball tank is a hipac which needs a lot of tinkering and a few safety mods and would still need alot more dosh spending to get any where near nutshots
    far easier and cheaper to get a king ratty and hpa it using a regulated paintball tank which will give you far more consistent shots than a hipac or a carbined pcp pistol
    a pic of a hipac'd 2250 and a couple of hpa'd king ratty's

    thinking about it wouldn't it just be cheaper to buy a 2240 pistol and just put a power adjuster and stock adapter on it, new breach and longer barrel?

    Atomic`s are better to stay at pistol power as they don`t have enough air or barrel . I got 10 shots at 11 off an atomic where the grand prix or fn8 will do about 30 shots.

    Heres my falcon and my old grand prix

    [​IMG]

    To attach a stock the brocock is the easiest one to make a stock adapter for as a falcon you have to work round the power adjustment and keep it none adjustable when assembled. The brocock adaptor just replaces the hammer cap.

    Heres a few pics of a folding stock and adapter I did for my atomic (can only be run at 6ftlb with the folder)

    I found the folder just a bit too long for me so took it off . If its any use to you Andy paypal me a fiver to cover the post and I will send it you . You just need to mod the back of your stock and remove the AT to fit it :)
