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.

    '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.

Raw Hm1000x With X Twist .22 Barrel

    I found a bit of time to work on one of my guns. A couple of months ago I swapped my Fx impact MK2 for a RAW HM1000x. Originally the RAW was fitted .25 barrel and a 500cc bottle, neither were what I wanted but parts are easy to swap about on rapids/RAWs so these didn’t put me off doing the deal.

    I already had a spare .22 x twist barrel, so after shortening, fitting a carbon sleeve for stiffness and making up a collet to fit block, the barrel was installed. Due to drinking straw Dia of the FX liner, I needed to fit an additional shroud not only for stiffness but also sound reduction. For even more sound suppression, I fitted an additional carbon mod. It wasn’t noisy before but it is seriously quiet now :thumb:

    With the additional Dia of the shroud, I couldn’t fit a 400cc Ali bottle or a 480cc carbon buddy bottle, the 280cc bottle looked a little small due to the physical size of both the stock and block so I settled on a 370cc carbon bottle.

    D4DEBAA0-1006-4C6E-AE16-5F27BE60789F.jpeg 94240230-3F26-4E45-8792-C9B5C2F50A5C.jpeg F6B695F5-AF88-4E7D-8007-DC5AB3C2F1F3.jpeg D2F1357D-A9D5-49F8-85E4-80139EEC4250.jpeg AD201A93-96A3-4E28-AC73-07510C330C76.jpeg 09B04AA9-6A2A-45C5-9704-0A13B9FB820A.jpeg

    I have yet to try it at any distance but at 25yards it sends jsb Stratton down the same hole every single time:)

    Even with the carbon bottle and the featherweight barrel assembly, this gun is no lightweight, it’s built like a tank but most of the weight is near the shoulder so is surprisingly easy to hold, the trigger is sublime, the cocking is slicker than snot, consistency is low single figures and the accuracy is outstanding.....I love this gun :D

    I do like the stocks on these RAW rifles.

    I do like the red laminate one they use in their adverts.

    It is very 'grown up'. I have had similar thoughts about Huntsman Regals. You have to have a certain age and gravitas before you are allowed to own one. I don't think I will ever achieve the latter..............

    Bucketboy singing the praises of a fx liner, on how accurate it is.
