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.

S200 leaking out of the bled valve - how to fix??

    Just picked up an S200 which the seller said had a leak so he let it go for a decent price.

    The valves in the gun seem ok but the cylinder is leaking through the bleed hole.

    Wheres the best place to get it sorted at a decent price? :)

    There's no bleed hole on an S200 cylinder (unless it's fitted with a regulator, which you don't mention). I assume you mean the two holes in the filler valve plug, which are meant for use with some sort of peg spanner. If it's leaking from there then it's just an o-ring job - the ones mentioned by SteveO in his first reply to your earlier thread.

    If it's just a very slow leak and the o-ring appears to be in good nick, it's worth trying packing the groove underneath the seal with one or two thin strips of plumber's tape (PTFE), this will often do the trick.

    Best of luck and congrats on getting an S200 - they're cracking little rifles that will shoot as well as stuff costing far more.

    Thanks for your reply.

    It does have a regulator, sorry - didn't realise they were not standard (still learning!)

    The leak is from the tiny hole at the base of the regulator / valve where it meets the main body of the cylinder.

    EDIT: Just spoke to Air Arms and they said they'd service it all and change all the seals for £90 inc. return postage. Think that's a fair deal.

    That sounds like good news, but have you told them that it's fitted with a regulator? I don't know what sort of reg you've got, but if it's like mine (a Tench/Tweaky) bubbles coming out of the bleed hole mean that the reg itself (which is not an Air Arms/CZ part) is leaking.

    Anyway, best of luck and hopefully you'll soon be enjoying it as much as I do mine :)

    As mentioned above, if it has a regulator Air Arms will not touch it because it is not a standard item.

    Is there a stainless steel part between the cylinder and brass part that screws into the rifle or is there a bleed hole drilled into the air cylinder?

    If you have the type with the stainless steel section then it is a pretty good chance it is Tench/Tweaky regulator.
    I can service the regulator and set the reg pressure for you, all I need is the air cylinder. I can obviously service the complete action if you like and I am cheaper than AA.

    If you are interested send me a pm or email.
