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.

    Evening all, i have recently bought my son a brocock bantam mk2 and have been trying to get it to group with no success, i saw it has been clipping the end of the moderator attachment (screw cap on end of shroud) anyway today i drilled it out a bit and am sure it's not clipping anymore, however it's terrible! So i chronod it, and 1st shot 10.1 ftlbs. 2. 8.9 ftlbs! Anyway I'm wandering if anyone has any ideas? I am going to change the breach seal tomorrow morning and will try that. Not sure if that could cause it? I bought it new and the shop has said i can take it up and he'll look at it, but brocock are closed atm so could have a long wait. The shop is also an hr drive each way and its difficult getting a day off work atm. So hoping to get it fixed myself if possible. Any help would be great. Thanks

    Hi mate I currently have the same problem with my mark 2. I have changed the breach seal thinking that would solve it but no change. I have a massive loss in power which results in in accuracy. Spoke to a couple of gun shops but would need to take it to them. Everything on the outside seems fine so am at a loss?

    What does 10 shot string over the chrono look like?

    Do you have the regulated or standard version?

    Sounds very much like a regulator issue (assuming this is a regulated version)

    I wouldn't attempt to fix it myself as any invasive remedial work will be visible and will void the warranty. Some will say warranties are worthless, and I'd largely agree, for small, easily rectified issues. But for an important integral part of the action you'll want the warranty to replace the part if required.

    I'd suggest registering the issue with the RFD on the understanding that you'll return it to them under warranty when safe / convenient to do so. That ir request an exchange or refund.

    Sorry all, been flat out at Work so not been on in a while. I'm still waiting for the shop to get back to me to tell me when brocock are re open. I've since bought my boy a gamo gx40 so he's at least out shooting again, as we have a lot of rats at work. And not the same shooting without him tbh. I wish I'd bought that in the 1st place tbh. Yesterday he was putting. 22 pellets through a 8mm hole in one of hairyarms polo targets at 45yds. I wish i could just have my money back for the brocock. I didn't write the chrono results down but they are shocking (all over the place)

    Re the Brocock, you should be able to request a refund, given that the rifle appears to be faulty, and you have not been able to return it due to current events. If the shop is open, return it ASAP, and request a refund.

    He is, I'm lucky as he's very keen still and nearly 15 now, he started shooting at 6. Its nice to have him out with me still. I think i will ring them and ask for a refund. The shop is an hr drive each way too, so time off work twice more,to take it back then to collect it.
