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.

    I should add... that was in standard form..

    I’ve since taken it to Chris at Air Arms and he ripped through it - no reg!

    It will now do 80 shots filling all the way to 200, and all on the money.

    He’s done a few for me now, he says he adds the personal touch that the factory can not so in general is a good clean out, polish and correct lube. He did one for @Air arms boy too and achieved identical results.

    That's for a carbine which you'd be VERY lucky to see, Mikey's is a full length for which they claim 80 shots in .177 anyway. If one of their employees can "Blueprint" one to give the claimed figure makes you wonder why they don't do it themselves in the first place :shrug:

    Shouldn't be much of a difference at all if it was at the manufacturing stage to make sure everything was as it should be. It's more of a QC issue.

    not being funny but how many does bowkett do in a day? maybe 3 and what does he charge each customer? now times this cost by say 10 guys doing the extra work maybe new staff to pay to do the work, you would be adding a couple hundred quid to the cost of the gun

    Out of interest, just what would a blue print on an S400/10 or 510 involve/achieve
    Hammer rail clean/polish, barrel pull through, bit of grease on a bolt, hardly rocket science
    Sorry if I offend anyone, only just got up.

    Bowkett has to replace the rubbish parts and make good the BSA cost savings crap they decided to go with instead of his original design and do a ground up rebuild to his proper spec. That is totally different to it being sorted at the manufacturing stage.
    And to quote Mikey
    That doesn't sound like a very complicated long winded operation that would bump up the price and only gets the gun to the 80 shots they claim in their spec, but it's from 20bar above their recommended fill pressure.

    Sorry I mean 190 bar, I have 200 in my head from other guns...

    But that’s 80 spot on shots, not 80 on a curve.

    No price was bumped up, it was done for free as the gun initially went in for being over powered and whilst there I became friendly with Chris and he went through the entire gun for me.
