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.

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.

    Here is my hatsan AT44-10 .177 I've fitted bi-pod, silencer & 6-24x50 scope plus a bit of a tinker

    So ive had this rifle about a month now. I brought itt from a member of this forum. It was shooting ok but not as good as i wanted, so it was time to strip her down check the internals & change seals.

    I did alot of searching on the interwebs to see what was worth doing & how to do it. I do have to say it was easy to work on.
    Ive now polished the hammer & spring (had no polish left thinking what i could use... I tried toothpaste & it worked !! Not as good but good enough) de burred bits here & there and greased her up.
    Gun was alot smoother to use now cocking felt & sounded better.
    I did a fair few mods but im not gonna list how i did some due to obvious reasons. What i can say is i bored out transfer port from 1mm to 3.5mm ( i get same power for less air not much though). I then shaved a bit of metal of the mags as they were way to tight even when the o rings were removed, this really affects accuracy so if any at44 or bt65 owners are having accuracy problems try that first.
    I should also mention that power was up & down even before i had started to work on gun. Maybe seals i thought... nope the spring retainer nut that sits inside the hammer was a loose fit so after being adjusted it would rotate when fired. I retapped the hammer about halfway down the thread to see what would happen & it worked a treat (id use plumbers tape but just wanted to use my new tap set). So all that was left was to fit new o rings which i did til it came to the transfer port. These two were completely gone, the one had broke in two & the otger had been sqaushed. As always i had all o ring sizes apart from that one so had to stop there. I managed to source some right on my doorstep (thanks dad) I took the T/P & brass fitting to the shop. After giving me a funny look (due to size i think) he measured the parts went out back for 5 - 10 mins thinking to myself they didnt have any that small... he came back with 2 sizes, one was same as original o ring the other a tad oversized which gave a much better fit & seal he sold me 20 for a £1 :).
    So rushed home (5min walk) to rebuild my "Hattie" checked it all over then loaded a mag. 1st shot with bisley mags 10.3 was around the 7fpe mark so quick adjustment had it at 11.5 mark the 5 shot string was 11.4, 11.4, 11.5, 11.3, 11.6 or there abouts and im prob using 1/3 to 1/2 less air now too.
    I now have a consistent gun that can be adjusted to suit different pellets on the fly. So im very happy with the results & think she will be a keeper, i should also sau this is my 1st propa .177 i used to be .22 only but thats changed now. Anyway thanks for reading i know its a bit on the long side but i just wanted let people know the background..

    EDIT I've somehow deleted photo as i uploaded it to this post ?? So will have to put them on post 2 in a minute :(
