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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:


    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.

S200 Familiarity Strip And Clean.

    I bought my first PCP last week, an Air Arms S200 MK2 in .22

    It's in great condition for a 2004 rifle, the stock is as near mint as I've ever seen other than where someone overtightened the bolt for the barrel band and crushed the wood a tiny bit. It's ok though, I reckon a bit of Acraglas will help in that area.

    Otherwise the rifle looks to be in good condition.
    Using advice from this forum and some YouTube vids, I went about stripping it down, mainly just to give it a proper spruce up and familiarise myself with this little rifle that has a big reputation.

    The last owner had wrapped some carbon effect tape around the silencer, the barrel and part of the tube. That had to come off! Good thing is did come off and left not one trace of glue behind. Simple things make me happy!

    I then removed the barrel and the air cylinder and gave them a clean up and oiling. Some small spots of surface rust was evident but nothing a wipe with some 3 in 1 oil couldn't sort.

    Looking at the cylinder it was obvious that someone had tried their hand at removing the end of it as it's been chewed up a bit by tool abuse. Can't tell if they actually got it off, looks like it might have beaten them and they left it alone before they completely wrecked it.

    I'll find out soon what's in the cylinder when I go at it myself next week to fit a new Huma internal regulator and also a manometer and new filler probe. I ordered the tool for removing the cylinder ends too.

    Main job was to fit some butt spacers made for me by Nobby of these forums. I'm trying out 50mm which gives me decent eye relief when both standing and prone and helps to make my elbow less cramped, this being a small rifle.

    The plan is to remove the spacers when my son grows into the rifle and it will become his and I'll go back to shooting firearms although I can see an expensive air rifle purchase for me possibly in a couple of years.

    Following advice, I made a tool from a cheap utility key to remove the butt stock retention nut. The genuine tool is not expensive but it was much more interesting to modify something to do the job.

    Next job is to take it to the range , zero it and get some pellets down range.

    My s200 is one of the most accurate rifles I’ve shot. It’ll be worth your effort!
