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.

    That’s nice! I see you too avoid the scope fixing block on the barrel, I’ve got my front mount attached to it and it doesent seem to effect the accuracy but I can see why it’s avoided, I’ll have a look for one of those mounts you have.
    The more I read on this subject the more I think the barrel band is not required but I think I would have to use a good hard case for transit instead of the cheap and nasty gun bag I have :eek: LOL

    Ditch the mag!
    Unless you are shootings rats I see the 200 mag as a purposeful and deliberate saboteur of accuracy!

    :) I don’t know if I’m just lucky but the mag doesn’t seem to affect accuracy as others have said, I’ve tried my s200 using the SS tray and the mag and there’s no difference, it just really accurate, although a tin of pellets doesn’t meet to last long! :(

    Hi,
    just caught up with this thread. I have my 2 x S200's in custom stocks and use SMW Engineering custom printed cylinder clips that do ONLY hold the air cylinder and NOT the barrel . I too use 2" forward reach scope rings :)

    I think I’m going to have to remove the front scope mount on the barrel, I’ve just had a good look at the set up without the barrel band fitted, I don’t think I could get a fag paper through between the scope mount and barrel.
    I waiting for the Rowan band to arrive so I’ve chopped the barrel hole in the old band so the barrel is floating but the air tube is supported, I’ll give it a go on the range today.........

    Is that a sleeve or shroud on the barrel. Looks very good.
    Must be tight for space?

    It's a standard barrel, just had tje bluing buffed off as it was a bit rank. Will be re blued or ceracoated eventually.
    That's a bsa 175mm cylinder in the middle there.

    Just fitted the Rowan barrel band, very well engineered and fits perfectly. Had to re-zero then Shot 2 mags at 30m - Tack driver again!

    Hi guys, dumb question, why do you have a bsa cylinder on your S200? What's wrong with the old one? Sorry Tillygti6, is it that much bigger, I mean it looks a lot beefier than the traditional cylinder. One more thing, what did you do with your trigger, how did you get by the set screw and spring assembly behind the trigger. I like the Rowan trigger, I might have to buy one. Did you modify your trigger by any way, because I have one of the old S200's from like 12 years ago, and my trigger is crunchy.

    Hi, the bsa cylinder is much shorter than the original one, the barrel is now only around 13" long too.
    It's all shorter,that's why it looks fatter. It has a tench regulator, again a blued bsa one and quickfill end gauge.

    In the pictures ,Phil has just a washer pinching the trigger spring in position for setup/testing purposes only.

    I make up some bedding blocks ,to increase the footprint of the action inside the stock and that incorporates the grub screw adjuster ,so the tiny trigger guard can be removed.
