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.

Problem With My Brocock

    So,

    Bought a brocock concept super 6 elite (thumbhole stock pcp),

    Holds a fill perfect no leakage. Fires smooth. No problems.

    Tried to zero it. Firing all over the place. Started a process of elimination. Changed the pellets, washed the pellets, oiled the pellets. tried a different scope just incase. Tried it without the suppresor just incase.
    It was then chronographed and was shooting at under half the pressure. Around 5.5 as opposed to over 11

    Still firing all over the place. The rifle is virtualy brand new and hardly used. Problem is ,its out of warranty and no reciept. Bought it and hardly used it.

    Whats my options??? Am i lumberd with a gat that wont work or is this fixable? Not botherd about cost but something is wrong if its shooting way under pressure. Fairly amateur at this air rifle lark guys so your advice would be apreciated. Help!

    Is it time for the balloon test? Are the pellets you are using proven with this rifle? If it hasn't been used for a while it may have oxidised lead in the barrel and need a clean.

    If you bought it from new and depending how far out of warranty I’d still get in touch with Daystate first before tearing it down , nothing ventured nothing gained .

    Silly question is moderator/adaptor fitted not clipping ? Power shouldn't affect point of aim unless power curve all over the place like pellets

    Tried with and without moderator mate. Same results. You could maybe hit 2 pellets within a 5pence piece of each other then the third would hit 6 inches away! Its honestly all over the place every 2nd or 3rd pellet hits way off

    So, @Airgunner2006, was it bought new? If so take it back and get your money back, as these had a pretty appalling rep within the trade when they came out and you certainly don't want to risk voiding any warranty by messing about with it if you can just get rid.

    If you became lumbered with it 2nd hand, IIRC the exhaust valves are prone to extrusion on early ones and they later changed to a harder material to prevent this, so to sort the energy issue you're looking at a new valve at a minimum, most likely. This is unlikely to sort the accuracy issue which could be one of many things; dodgy mag, cack barrel...

    if a guns breach seal/barrel seal is damaged,missing it will half the power
    easy way to check it,make sure its not loaded,remove mag,dry fire it,make sure bolt is closed and see if you can blow down the barrel
    DONT let anyone see you do this as it doesnt look good
    im betting you can blow down,if no resistance is felt the barrel/breach/probe oring is damaged/gone
    if its ok,it could also be an other internal oring on the firing side thats gone,not a seal that holds air all the time,one thats under pressure for a split second the trigger is pulled
    ive serviced many airguns in the past 9 years,if you want it sorted,pm me.
