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.

    '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.

    I have noticed something a bit annoying with my setup. I can see that the action is not level with the stock. It tilts slightly to one side. The scope is level with the rail and bore to the best of my ability, so I know accuracy won't be effected. However, I still find this very annoying. See attachment, thank you.

    so i downloaded and enlarged to take a good look
    it is net net to the inside of the stock upper left and that would need a little relieving but can't see if that is all the way down or just in the back
    with this being held in place from the bottom can the action be twisted square before tightening or does it end up where it is when tightened down no matter what
    all i can see to do is relieve the inside of the stock, maybe a .5mm to start and you will have to take great care not to damage the exterior finish of the stock
    about all i have

    aye have a good look on the inside/inletting of the stock
    your looking for any high points on the LH side,if its high when tightened up it will pull to the right
    might be somthing as simple os a wood shaving/lost/squashed pellet.
    it may just need loosened/realigned and re-tightened
    if not as wewll as high points look for and sqashed down/compact marks.
    you may have to loosen the gun a give it a good wiggle before you see them,then simply remove a little bit of wood with rough sand paper
    and its also possible the stock wood has dryed and twisted,now thats a little harder to sort out

    Sure it's not the gauge mount, slightly off centre ?
    Like to keep things simple if I can, I have seen them out of line before, easy check.

    Did you have an issue where you over tightend the stock or was what someone else?

    If I push on the action whilst tightening the stock bolt, it moves back into position. I will take a look inside the stock and sand down the left side if required.

    I will take a look inside the stock and sand down the left side if required.

    The gauge is central to the cylinder and trigger unit. However I have had this problem before. It is common with these rifles for it to move when tightening the gauge screw.

    It is indeed. The issue was sorted by steaming the flattened wood, tidying up the hole with a drill bit, using glue to strengthen the wood and using a larger washer.

    The gauge was slightly off. Centred it. Action now sits better in terms of cant. However, the action now hugs one side of the stock more than the other. One problem fixed only to receive another.

    Edit: Held the action in place whilst tightening the stock screw seemed to fix it. I think the inside of the stock is a little uneven and raised slightly on one side so I may need to sand the inside a little just to even it out as suggested earlier.

    Hello, the only thing I can suggest is if out of warranty let cloverleaf aka mike take a look, and a service while he has your rifle stripped down, the 400 is a classic AA made rifle and will last year's
