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.'

  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.

    Looks like a trip to the gunshop is needed! Chronoed my s200 today and it has come in at a consistent 6.6 ftlb! Talk about puny!

    Don't have a clue what to do with it so it looks like I'm gunna have to leave It to the proffesionals!

    Just to check, what chrono did you use? If it is one that calculates the power for you, are you sure the pellet weight was entered correctly?

    Don't really kniw what it were mate, but it could be possible? I have taken it to a gunshop to get it chronoed before and it was only 7.6 then, but this was because of a faulty probe o-ring.. after a new one was fitted it was back to 10.8

    Then my o-ring snapped and ever since putting a new one on my self, I feel it hasn't been up to the right power since! The o rig fits fine as I have done the old tissue paper test and it doesn't move a bit!

    It sounds reasonable that there is a problem, especially if you have had trouble already.

    Is it .177 or .22, the most likely mistake is entering the weight of a .177 pellet (e.g. 8.4 grains) but actually measuring the speed of a .22 pellet (say 14 grains), then you get a factor of 1.7 difference in this example. If the power has dropped from 10 to 6 ftlbs, then you would surely notice a difference in your trajectory? Certainly it would affect your aim points past 30 yards.

    I'm glad you have said that, because I haven't neccesarily noticed a difference because it only now that I have taken an intrest in longer range shooting, only targets though because with 6.6 ftlbf you can only really shoot something up to 30 yards as you are running out of energy, but for instance today I was measuring the bc of my pellet using the POA and POI and from a zero of 25 yards, the pellet is dropping 5 inches when shooting at a 40 yard taget, this is what made me do a chrono test! Because I didn't think that was right? Any suggestions with what it could be? And is it going to be expensive? Thanks for your help mate!

    Basically you lay a small piece of tissue paper over the bold by the breech seal when you fire the gun. If the seal is intact and sealed well the tissue paper should not move. If it blow away then the seal is not doing its job and you could be losing pressure and therefore power.

    Are you sure you purchased a 12 ftlb version? These do come in 6 ftlb versions aswell. Just a thought.

    :cool:
