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.

    Guys sos! I’m trying to remove the end cap from my PP700SA to fit my best fittings silencer adaptor and I can’t. I have the special tool but what happens is that as lm trying to unscrew the cap the hole shroud comes off the barrel. The cap is turning freely but it doesn’t come out.
    In some videos I’ve watched on YouTube it comes out easily just by unscrewing it. This doesn’t happens with mine. Any help would be very appreciated.

    Bummer ... thought they may have used thread lock on the cap and heat normally helps ease things. I know @Nubble has experience with these pistols (PP800 for sure), so perhaps he can help - Nubbs any ideas ?

    'fraid I've not had one apart but seen the vid. lol. PP800 is different tho.

    Are you saying even with the shroud removed the end cap spins in the shroud?? If this is the case I would try inserting something inside the shroud to rest up on the end cap [longer than the shroud) and use a downwards force whilst trying to undo the end cap, it may take an extra pair of hands. I hope the thread ain't knackered.

    Unless I have my wires crossed. Like you I have just seen them unscrew.

    That is exactly the case. When I unscrew the cap the whole shroud comes off and then the cap just spins freely within the shroud. It’s very weird...
    At some point I thought that it is probably some change they did to the pistol because it feels that is impossible to come off.

    Terry Robb video below which shows it just unscrewing, but he also uses/mentions another tool that goes into the breech if you experience problems ... hopefully might be of use to you Sexar ?

    Sorry for the late response, I’ve only just seen this !

    I had much the same problem with my PP700 SA.

    You need the TK Robb Breach tool to hold the barrel, as it’s probably spinning with the end cap. Unfortunately, worst case scenario is that the end cap is cross threaded. I had had one gun that had this problem and I had to return the gun for exchange. (The barrel thread that retains the end cap is P**s Poor) and this has been the case on both guns.

    Also, on both guns I had to use lots of release / penetrating oil to get the end cap off. (It never worked out like the TK Robb video)

    Hopefully, that’s not the case and the Breach / barrel retaining tool will do the trick.

    Hi Pete, thanks for your reply. Unfortunately I have this special breach tool and didn’t made any difference.
    I’m quite disappointed because it is a lovely and accurate pistol to shoot.
    I think I will go back to the shop and see if I can get another one. It’s good to know though that I’m not the only one with this problem. Cheers

    That’s a shame.

    A replacement or rectification is mandatory and not up to the dealer to decide.

    You are entitled to be able to fit a silencer and if that cannot Be achieved because of a fault, the dealer needs to either sort the problem or replace with a gun where the end cap can be removed, to allow for a silencer to be fitted.

    Don’t be messed about.

    Good luck.

    Pete

    one of the good mods is to grub screw the breech bush
    this then fixes the bushing and when you un do the cap it will either remove the end cap then or remove the barrel and shroud
