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.

Question S200 Extended Cylinder.

    So I picked up an AA S200 with the intention of enticing my 10 yo daughter with it and most importantly AWAY from my S510 US. :D

    This particular rifle has had many goodies fitted but the relevant one in respect of this post is the external Lane regulator. This has in effect made the cylinder a couple of inches longer and most importantly closer to the mod resulting in the necessity of the removal of said mod when a fill up is required. The AA mod is held in place by a grub screw so with an Allen key to hand it's no big deal to remove and re attach but I was wondering what work arounds existing owners of this set up have come up with.

    This has only come to light yesterday when I filled her up down the range for the 1st time so my initial thought was to have a 1/2 inch UNF thread cut into the barrel. This would allow me to fit either an air stripper/muzzle break which could stay on the barrel without interfering with the air filling operation or alternatively I could when noise suppression is an issue exchange it for a moderator which due to the threading be done tool free.

    Can you guys please point out any obstacles/flaws to this course of action or have other more viable suggestions because I like the simple life me. :p

    Thanks in advance.

    I had an Altaros QF on a S200 cylinder, worked well.

    A chum has a BSA Ultra and he's just put a Scorpion airtube on it, coming up against a similar problem, can't get the hose on the filler. We made a barrel extension for him like this https://i.imgur.com/ICuhok8.jpg to push the silencer further away.

    Here it is, installed. https://i.imgur.com/lxvmCo1.jpg


    Edit: I should have given credit to Rowan for the blued item; it wasn't long enough so we made him a longer one in 2014 aluminium (tougher than 6082) and it was still a third lighter than the steel one.

    Quick fill and pressure gauge is the easy solution.

    Thanks @Nobby. Did his Ultra barrel already have the 1/2" UNF thread to attach the extension to as mine doesn't hence the mod is retained by a grub screw.

    Is the barrel 14mm on a 200?. If so Rowan do a long mod adaptor for the HFT500 14mm barrel as that has the same problem.

    Thanks @Bezzer . I've just measured it and it's 15mm. o_O

    Hopefully someone'll be able to confirm this or set me straight . . .

    The Ultra barrel was already screwcut 1/2 inch UNF. Many Ultras had mini silencers that were partly reflex in appearance.

    Sadly the S200 barrel isn't. Please can you tell me how easy is it to cut a UNF thread into my barrel ?

    Quite easy .

    But you dont get much of a shoulder , and your silencer / stripper will be another 10 -15 mm closer to the end of the cyl.

    I would soon get bored of removing the silencer to refill ,but i am extremely lazy.

    Can you show us a pic of the qf underneath the dust cap please . Im wondering if you can scallop the dust cap away .

    If you can fit the mod back on for the pic that would give a better idea of clearance.

    The probe type Qf would work well
