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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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 gents
    I have decided to 'pimp' my beloved Mod. 52, up to a high standard, I have ordered a FT style stock in burr walnut ,i know classy ;)
    I would also like to replace the spring and HOPEFULLY get a new barrel for it, if anyone knows where I can get it serviced/ buy parts I would find their help very useful and I would appreciate it a lot.

    Well it is nice to know that the 'Airgunforum' is very helpful and supports its diverse amounts of shooters with their dilemmas, needs and requirements.

    You expect a reply within less than an hour? We don't employ Diana Mod52 professionals 24/7 for threads like these...give it a few days before complaining :)

    I was mostly just looking for suggestions for leads that I could follow up, rather than these 'Diana Mod52 professionals' especially when there were some more specialized threads that were posted at a similar time to me that almost instantaneously received multiple replies, some of which were not even required/related.
    Regards

    kent,
    I used chambers to buy my spring for my 52, fitted straight in without cutting
    (unlike a titan for example) produced full power but other than a new spring guide
    I have never needed to replace anything else, what are your intensions, a tuning kit ?

    Hello,I love the side leaver variants .firstly what cal you got, for ft IDE want .20 but 177 from factory ..20 loather walther 12 land and grouve match barrel will be my next adventure ,short stroked but this is custom work.
    what stock are you having and who makes it .i have found a thumb hole stock works best for me ergonomicaly .
    tune wise take your pic ,check out airguntec on the net ,this guy is working on lots of diana variants as well as other short stroking and tuning in general.
    I have a few different tunes in my side leaver collection including venom arms ,v mach and ken turner tuned ,the latter turner tuned is my favourite it just doesn't move and is so accurate in .22.
    you can tune a 52 yourself very well,original main seals are excellent indeed ,and early guides were decent steel type and can be polished ,with spit polish a 1mm spring sleve to take up the stupid amount of space between spring and piston wall and a quality spring your looking good.
    You can fit kits but a lot of the improvement in action I have found comes from debure and polish of internals which isn't included with a kit and will cost bucks in house and waiting times are long .
    .great rifle
