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.

    HI.
    first time using this forum so I apologise if this has been asked before but I couldn't see anything related.

    I have a RWS series 50 here in the UK which I believe is the same as a Daystate X2.
    I love this rifle and I have a Hawke 6-24x50 Vantage Scope, Night Vision screen , Bipod and a second Modifier. Mainly used for pest control and small game shooting.

    The only thing I don't like is .. I have no way of telling how much air pressure is in the cylinder.
    is there any way to add a gauge to the end of the cylinder or an attached hose gauge to read from ? or can I buy a cylinder that has one built in. The cylinder on this is a lot thinner than most so not sure if there is anything else on the market that is compatible.

    Thanks for any help you can offer.

    Hi and welcome, I had a Daystate X2r back in the day and loved it. Yours is in lovely condition so well done:thumb:.
    As to your dilemma have you had a look at Best Fittings website? They are all things HPA for us PCP users. Fitting a permanent one would be a bit of a major project I feel and would involve gunsmithing. A quick solution would be to use a quick fill probe attached to a short whip and then a pressure gauge on the other end. All those bits would be easily available on the BF website...;)

    I shoot a pcp with no gauge I shoot my 3 mags as a shot count and then refill I know it's not a lot of shots but it's unregulated and this keeps me in the sweet spot.

    Thank you for the advice Burpster. Looking at their website there is so many parts. I'm surprised this isn't sold as a kit. I wouldn't know which bits would be needed that fit. May see if the local Gunshop can do it for me

    These were a pretty unique spec produced for RWS so you're unlikely to find anything suitable off the shelf.

    You could get a bespoke gauge assy made for the front end, but this would likely be disproportionately expensive and FWIW I'd suggest you run a full chrony string through it and from that ascertain its ideal fill pressure and the number of viable shots you get from this until the point it requires refilling, then decant this number of pellets into a tin so you can keep track of how many shots you have left :)

    That won't fit as the OPs rifle has a smaller OD cylinder ;)

    Hmm. Checked my X2 against the Regal, and it seems to be the same size. Guess the RWS isnt quite an X2 then!

    No, it's not - the X2 reference is spurious and incorrect as the whole cylinder assy on the RWS is smaller OD (check the proportions in the pic between it and the HW mod ;)).

    Explains it, thank you :) I assumed OP was correct in his assessment, but can see it now I'm looking. Would have worked it it had been though :laff:
