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.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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.

    Hello all, stumbled across this place only 2 days ago...seems ok friendly lot (if i keep outa politics :) )

    Ive had an 18 month hiatus and now, fully licensed (i'm in bonny scotland), ive purchased a TDR. Had one before, and i got a VERY good deal on this one. Freeads and as soon as i got there i knew he was a 'real' shooter, gave me loads of extras that have saved me a Corby trident bomb (Do you know that hm gov has trident running on windows xp, the same exposed system as the nhs, and silly billys are gonna vote for the b*****s lol) Soz, i said no politics daint i?

    Right, so the question, the TDR i have purchased has had a power adjuster fitted, guy said he does a lot indoors so turned it down rather than up. Now i'm not fussed, shot a string today and its at av of 11.5, but is my gun illegal by having the adjuster fitted?

    Say i took it in for a service or, god forbid, a repair are they gonna turn round and say my guns illegal unless i have a fac simply by having the option to crank it up?

    I will add, ive no interest in more power, i hunt rabbits, if i get two fatties in 3 hours of devious sneakiness im a happy chappy...

    Do you mean the 'anti tamper' has been removed? (which is not illegal).

    Have to be careful with discussion of power adjustment on open forum, due to the rules.

    Ayup & welcome to the forum.

    I am assuming that no other tool is needed to adjust the power using the power adjuster.If so, you could well be on dodgy ground.

    I have an MPR where I can access the venturi and adjust the power but it needs an allan key to do so and there is a cover screw over the venturi that also needs removing. I am comfortable with this but some may even find this to be dodgy ground.

    Hope that helps but I am sure someone will be along soon with a more definitive answer.

    Hmm, don't sound good then. Its a Philips screw just along from the mag, i take that off and theres a grub screw underneath which you adjust....

    edit
    i realise this is sailing close to the rules. all im after is an answer yes or no its illegal, if it is then obviously the guys getting a phone call and a visit.....

    The same as the MPR I mentioned and other rifles I have had. Personally, I would not be concerned but others may disagree.

    Sounds like you have access to the firing port adjuster screw (allen headed grub screw). This could be perceived as capable of taking you over the limit as it's not sealed off. The original would have been (correct me if I'm wrong) the conical remains of a sheared-off Anti Tamper screw. If you're happy with the power you may be able to have a new AT screw fitted by a gunsmith then that should be an end to the problem.

    I don't think that would be a good idea and I doubt anyone else would recommend it either. AN AT screw must be available and is reversible, should the mood take you. Super glue would need application is heat to loosen it and as it's buried deep in the body it would be hard to loosen it.

    Cheers for the welcomes!

    Got my problem sorted as well, ordered an anti tamper screw from fleabay which will replace the Philips. May well be unnecessary but gives me peace of mind, my perm is right out in the sticks and local plod are likely to pull you for a chat due to an upsurge in thefts from the farms.....
