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.

Advice S200 Make Over

    Hi all,

    I have a little project on the go and would welcome some opinions and advice as to what to do.
    I picked up an old S200 (pre T bar filling, two part stock) that’s in good working order but I want to get more out of it. I’m planing on doing a few bits and wondered what would be best.

    Lane Reg? Are they easy to do yourself. I have no experience with playing around with regs. Or do I choose another reg and not lane? I’m not up for drilling so the simpler the better. Are there different sizes for older models? Are they pre set?

    Quick fill and gauge? Which one and is it a case of taking out the old one and just screwing in?

    Choke - do i need to play about with this? I want the power up a little from 10.2 up to about 11. Do I need to balance this with the hammer spring?

    Adjustable butt pad. Which one to choose. Anything slightly different than the standard?

    Many thanks

    Good choice and you'll end up with a nice rifle.

    If you don't want to do it yourself then Phil at The Ratworks is your man, and can do the mods you mention and more.

    If you want to do it yourself the You can get all the parts from Darrin at XTx - he also does videos to show how to fit them etc.

    The minimum should be quickfill, gauge, regulator and a tune :D

    Cheers,
    I’ve had one before but moved it on and regretted it. Now I want to get one shooting as good as can be, and then I’ll have to do my bit.
    I’ve had a 510 US done by Phil and wasn’t that impressed to be honest. It also had to go back twice and then left the stock off so had to wait for the stock. Maybe a one off..
    I’d like to have a crack myself.
    Lane or someone else for a reg? I’ve seen a few using the MK9 lane and I want the extra shots and consistency but no nothing about setting one up or installing one.
    I’m also probably going to get rid of the multi shot mag, nothing wrong with it, just like the single shot idea.

    I'd check out xtx air website - they do either external or internal regs. External, ones look very simple to install looking at the videos.

    I had a S200 and regret selling it the 10 shot mag conversion was rubbish and I think something in the cocking mechanism was wearing out but I still loved it it was so accurate
    Anyway Iv just brought the newer Improved version IMG_0395.jpg
    Happy dayz I hope it’s as accurate as my old one

    While you can tune the power up or down with just the hammer spring, you'll get more consistency if you have a play around and balance the hammer spring with the choke.

    My S200 ended up getting an external Huma reg, 10 shot conversion, and a new stock. I'll eventually get around to getting a quick-fill with gauge.

    Had an external huma. Worked fine.
    Brought a longer Altaros cylinder and with the external reg I couldn't get the moderator on.
    Sold the huma and got an Altaros internal one.
    Have a gauge and quick fill on the end as well.
    Shoots fantastically now.

    The trick is not to get her to interested and then she doesn’t know one rifle from another

    Nope. Cylinder and reg cone seperate.
    You have to remove the ends of the original cylinder and use that on the new one.
    Be prepared for a bit of grunt work. They are often reported to be so tight they must have been fitted by gorillas.
    You will have to remove them if you decide to fit a quick fill with pressure gauge and regulator anyway

    Not that I want to undermine anyone on this forum but have you joined the Air Arms forum, Littlejohn365? There is a huge amount to do with the s200 to be found there. Raj is the main man for this rifle.
