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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  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.

    Hi I have the Air Arms s200 with the rotary magazine fitted, keep getting problems loading pellets with the bolt action not being able to fully engage when loading another pellet, this has happened a few times now, very frustrated don't want to force the bolt action and break it, any ideas, PS been using Webley hustler pellets and some other ones as well but has happened with a few now.

    Three things spring to mind:

    1. Put some oil on the central O-ring in the mag - if this is dry it will cause the bolt to drag.
    2. Adjust the mag* to ensure that it aligns correctly with the bolt - failure to do so will cause the symptoms you describe as well as shearing off / damaging the breech seal.
    3. Stop using those Hustler pellets - they're Censored ;)


    *Adjusting the mag is achieved by turning a grub screw located on the LH underside of the mag housing (you may have to remove the housing or stock to get access). This alters the position of the mag stop; hence changing the angular positioning of the mag and subsiquent alignment of its chambers with the barrel and bolt. Check alignment with the mag unloaded and fitted by cycling the action whilst watching the mag - if, when the bolt is pushed forward and enters the mag you can feel resistance and/or see the mag rotate slightly in one way or the other to align with the bolt, it wants adjusting. Adjust and repeat until there's minimal movement and resistance.

    Once you've done all this and are satisfied with it, check that the breech seal is still in good nick (and replace as nec) as these take a pasting when the mags aren't aligned correctly.

    HTH ;)

    It would be clearer if you stopped beating around the bush and just said what you mean :D
