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.'

  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.

    Spent a couple of hours on my year old .22 Remington this evening and I was surprised by what I found as it a very nice accurate gun to shoot.

    1. Total lack of grease of any description on any of the moving parts. Just a very thin oil that got every where, in the trigger block right up to the seal.

    2. Spring ends weren't too bad but and cleaned/sanded up well, but I'm sure not to manys approval.

    3. Piston cleaned up well but the edges of the seal was a mess and needed a quick rub down.
    20190908_195606.jpg 20190908_195621.jpg 20190908_195554.jpg 20190908_210030.jpg 20190908_210045.jpg

    I sleeved the piston (which already has a metal one) using the old milk carton trick.
    Which was doddle, but if I did it again I would bin the metal sleeve and replace it with a correct sized PTFE sheeting saving some weight.

    The instructions available on the stickies section were a great help I would like to add you don't need to remove the barrel at the breach to get the latch rod off, its hinged in the middle with cir-clips.

    And a spring compression or sash clamp is a must I got a hand ratchet one from BNQ for about £8 did the job.

    When rebuilding you will need to re-cock the trigger to refit the safety catch then press the safety off and pull the trigger.

    I didn't put a kit in it (yet) as it is already a very nice gun to shoot. Just gonna see how it goes this week after these simple tweeks.

    Just one more thing if you're prone to cack handedness like me when it comes to small fiddly parts even if they are in a tub and liable to still knocking said tub over, do what my 11yr old told me to do, throw in a couple of 20190908_212636.jpg strong fridge magnets to keep them all together.

    No mate. Still the same spring. Just flattened it. Hed put all sorts of stuff down the barrel...in the tp..!! Wd40, baby oil....etc! Lol! Then left it to rust up cos it didn't shoot!
    I enjoyed taking it apart though. Apart from a good clean and re lube, I only added a piston sleeve made from one of my empty kronenbourg cans!
    Job done. Smooth little gun again. He was happy.
    Nice one.
    Walter
