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.

Rollon Sunday.

    I say this because I will be the new owner of a Air Arms Tm-100 .177
    I've been reading a thread off the Air Arms forum about the Air Arms 100 series which is very much the bible when it comes to these beautiful guns. The rifle I'm having has been used for 10meter but appart from that very little is known about it.
    So thanks for the information Mike, her she is.

    :)

    Looks really nice that - very original and well-preserved. I'm suitably jealous :p

    I see it's an earlier one (silver breech block). I really like the stock - very nice lines and the stippling suits it well. Does it have the Olympic trigger?

    Keep us posted as to how you get on ;)

    Nice looking rifle there.

    How does it handle? Only ask as I have held a venom huntsman ft which looks to be of a similar age and stance, and that was suprisingly heavy?

    Have a look at the diagram in the manual, here. On page 9 both units are shown; the olympic unit is a slightly different shape to the standard item, has a removable sideplate, inspection hole and the straight trigger blade is obviously bolted to the sear. Conversely the standard item has a single-piece curved blade.

    Yours doesn't look standard; the blade is straight and bolted on but it's possible that this could be a modified standard item. You should be able to tell if it's a (well-setup) Olympic as they're superb triggers. Mine's set about as light as it will go - there's no drag or lag in the first stage whatsoever while the second stage is incredibly predictable and breaks like glass.

    I measured the weights recently at around 80g / 2.8oz / 0.18lb for the first stage and 160g / 5.6oz / 0.36lb for the second. In terms of feel it's up there with modern target offerings and will blow your socks off if you're used to sporting triggers ;)

    If you look on page 10 the "adjustable straight blade match trigger" is listed as standard equipment on the TM and NJR :)

    They are very heavy Paul but in the words of Boris the Blade (off the film Snatch) "heavy is good, heavy is reliable. Besides if it doesn't work, you can always hit them with it)".
    I think that they are around 10lb I could be wrong.

    Hopefully it's an Olympic trigger then Mike.
    I did have a go with a match trigger on a competition 20 meter .22 (bullet).
    The bloke had to keep taking the rifle off me because every time I touched the trigger it would go off. In the end he said "only touch the trigger when your ready to fire". Man that was so smooth you didn't know you had set it off. Luckily it wasn't loaded lol. But it was fitted with a shot saver. Apparently the bolt is extremely delicate on them and very expensive. He did tell me how much the rifle cost, that when I quickly handed him the rifle back to him, taking great care not to drop it. I can't quite remember how much it was but it was enough to damage me pants. I remember it looking like something that they use on the Olympics (made a styer look like it was make by lego).
    Thanks again Mike. Its very much appreciated.

    Cheers bud
    Ken

    No Olympic trigger I'm afraid Mike but a nice trigger all the same.
    I'll keep you posted on my other findings.

    b****r - that's a shame. Sorry for the false hope.

    I wonder if that's a standard one that's been modded, or if the "straight-blade match trigger" is an Olympic on the NJR and a standard unit with different blade on the TM..

    Looks in cracking nick though (better than mine) - have you used it yet? How does it shoot?

    Mate it's like new. He must have wrapped it in cotton wool.
    Ive modified a 11mm silencer adapter to fit and added a whisper 180 that made a massive difference. Just had the regulator tested and its set at 82 with no leaks (cheers for that dave).
    Its alot lighter than my tx200hc which is a surprise, and the balance is lovely.
    I've just got to get my bottle back from my brother and stack some pellets in a zero or two.
    It was the hammer adjustment Mike, shes set at 11.0ft/lb now. I'll keep you posted on her performance mate.
    Cheers
    Ken
