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.

  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.

    Yep. Low or spikes in power will cause this issue. Also check the FPS spread

    Check it over the chrono - if velocity's consistent the issue is nowt to do with the reg - tbh accuracy problems rearly are although it sounds like you had good cause to junk the original reg (they are bloody awful!).

    Remove anything from the barrel (mod, shroud) and re-test. If you get no joy, repeat while single-loading the pellets as opposed to using the mag. Are you using exactly the same tin of pellets as you were before it went pear-shaped? If not, try a selection of other pellets.

    Sudden degradation to groups this large smack of something fundamental changing (such as the mod clipping) although IMO the barrels are poor quality at best and certainly don't live up to all the marketing bullsh*t BSA pump out in an attempt to trade off their past reputation.

    Was the gun bought new, and if so how old is it? Depending on how sympathetically everything has been treated it might be worth refitting all the original crap and rejecting it for a refund..

    Ive changed the breech / probe seal and given the barrell a good clean so ill be testing it this evening to see if thats improved the issue. Failing that ill have to try and get access to the chrony juat to make sure that things are good on that front. As for clipping, ive inspected the internals of the shroud and theres zero evidence of any clipping however ill still remove it and replace with the original to see if that makes any difference. All the fun and games of owning a BSA

    I put it in a vice, sil off, single loading, as said chrono test first, as said FPS etc good, it's odds on the barrel after to do. let us no how it feels on traveling down the barrel, easy or tight with a rod,, just a clean on a tight 1 not much of a gain. will need a polish to help, and a spray of silicone down it. ;) Al

    Going back to the silencer someone one here gave a great trick to try out which was placing some masking tape of the end and draw the exit hole on the silencer take a shot close to something to see the the position of the pellet hole on exit hope this helps.
