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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    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.

    This is the S200 target I snaffled recently off the freeads ( cheers mike :thumb: )

    Couldn’t be bothered faffing with removing the cylinder to fill, and I’m too blind for peep sights so have been fettling to make it more useable for me.

    Have bought a lane reg and fitted it this afternoon. I’ve not done anything internally yet as per the big set of instructions, but just as it is it gives a pretty steady 15.6j all the way down to about 1250psi ( 86 bar ish ) on the guage. I’ve only got 150 bar in my bottle so that’s all I’ve got to work with, but shot count doesn’t seem so bad.

    For filling, I modified the brass end section to couple to a new Ali section to take a foster fill male, and a guage that I got from Lanes. Popped the guage on the side so it’s easier to see, and was lucky that with the Dowty seal it lined up perfectly.

    Dead pleased with it, it shoots a treat, and weighs next to nothing which I like. With what range I have here, it’s easily as accurate as the wildcat I had, at quarter the price.

    I just went with the lane reg as it was a bit cheaper, and there would appear to be a lot of technical knowledge behind it, and via eBay I found him very approachable.

    There’s probably not much between lane and huma, but at least Lane is Uk based should there be any problems.

    Love that

    The full set up is great - do you have a list of the bits at all please? Just a case of fitting together or more to it?

    The original brass end fitting had the guage in a recess - the guage wasn’t encased as such, the walls of the brass end fitting protected it.
    The walls were removed on the lathe and the remains faced off. This left a flat face with a 1/8” hole in the centre.
    The original guage sealed to a plastic washer in a slight recess in this face ( around the 1/8” hole. ) I Opened up this recess slightly to take an oring.
    The new Ali section joins to the modified brass end cap with a 1/8” bsa threaded nipple I made from solid bar drilled 3mm - the o ring between the faces seals the two together.
    If I split it I’ll take a couple of pics.

    The guage came with the reg, and foster male quickfill is just something I picked up off eBay. It has a check valve inside which I backed up with a small spring.
