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.

    I was inspired to have a go at putting a shim into my SAA to stop the barrel wobble.... found a couple of appropriate YouTube vids to help me tackle it....

    All went well, beer can shim fitted & barrel nice & tight...
    Putting the thing back together I some how lost the spring that holds the lever that revolves the cylinder!... Damn!
    It's like it vanished off the face of the Earth!

    It's part 1-35 that I need....

    Where is the best place to buy?... A search so far is taking me around in circles & not bringing results.... Any advice gratefully received..... Thanks

    ...I had a go with a paperclip but it didn't work out.... Bit short on Pianos around here!
    I assume the type of wire needs to be of a particular tension to do the job properly? Would piano wire work? I thought it just good for garroting...& pianos of course! :confused:

    Getting parts for anything made by Umarex is difficult, they just refer you to the main dealer, John Rothery, who from experience don’t prove very helpful.

    Dan from Crawley surplus maybe able to help you out buddy, he's got a lot of Colt SAA spares in the past for other members.
    If all your searching proves fruitless, send me a PM and I'll see if I can't 'cobble' one together for you (but unfortunately I am moving house at the end of the month, so it will not be until after the move as my workshop is in the process of being packed away).

    Rothery are a distributor and don't deal direct with the public which is fair enough imo.
    It's usually a bone idle rfd who cannot be bothered to make the enquiry.

    Piano wire is spring steel solid wire not the brassy braided stuff you are thinking about. Plenty of various diameters on fleabay.

    You'd have to ask someone who already has one of these to perhaps measure it with a digi caliper for you........;)
