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.

    Hi everyone,
    I am looking into buying a pcp and need a scuba tank, I would like to know what is the average sort of size for an air reservoir on a pcp. I am looking at an Air Arms S410, if anybody knows that size of that, it would be even more helpful.
    Also is it true Falcon aren't making lefties anymore because I think Falcon rifles are absolutely beautiful? :(
    Thanks,
    Ali

    They can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, gun to gun, model to model, rifle to carbine, fixed to removal etc. so there isn't really a set size.

    I'm selling a 12 litre 235 bar air bottle set up in the for sale section if your interested ;)

    Dependant on your budget and how often you shoot and want to re fill the dive cylinder will depend on your choice. 3l is extremely portable but obviously wont last you as long as say a 7l. carbon fibre will offer more portability for bigger sizes.
    Mostly peoples decisions are based on how close they are to dive shops or gun shops that do a refill service.
    As For Falcon they dont exist anymore as a producer of Air Rifles.
    Regards,Stu.

    My Regal reservoir is 132cc - not sure about the Air Arms but I get about 90 shots out of it. I have a 12L bottle and I think I get about 125 fills from it but not totally sure but a hell of a lot, lasts months before a refill.

    S410 carbine a 7litre using the fill calculator will do 50 full fills if you fill to 190bar though i would probly get at least 75-80fills out of a 7litre as i would only get the bottle filled when it wont do 160bar anymore.

    S410 classic with 190bar fill would be 45fills and more if you underfill when your bottle gets low after the first 45fills.

    Unfortunately Falcon aren't making lefties any more - they're not making righties though either - production of all Falcon guns ceased probably 18 months ago..


    A bit less than that once you take into account what's inside; but close enough :p

    Last time my S410 carbine was apart I measured the cylinder volume (185cc) and subtracted the amount the valve block screwed in, the filling valve also (forgot numbers). The only thing I forgot about 'till I had rebuilt it was the amount taken up by the pot and spring inside (as its in effect open ended, via the tiny hole, it does not take much away). Quick guess I reckon probably 2cc. So air capacity could be 154cc. I won't take a penny less! :D

    we find that the 7litre bottle is a good size - a good compromise between portableness and praticality. as for a leftie, why not go for the superlite - its ambidextrous as opposed to a dedicated hand

    Its not difficult to change the air arms bolt over unless anti tamper is still fitted. Then you need to remove it first.

    if you bought new, you can specify bolt on left, at no extra cost
