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.

    You can buy a Bl4de one and adapter on here or buy an adapter and put whatever you want on the end.
    I find with springers its the mechanical noise rather than the muzzle that spooks quarry.

    I bought an Air Arms moderator for my TX 200 HC. https://www.air-arms.co.uk/moderators/standard-moderator-unf-male.html. Does the business. In fact when the moderator is on you can hear exactly how much (or how little) twang the gun has. After a little testing I established that the moderator had no impact on the POI or consistency of the rifle. BUT it does make it quieter - at least at the shooting end. Accounts of how it sounds at the quarry end are hard to come by.

    You must go to a gun shop to buy a new moderator face to face by law.

    You can buy ‘used’ ones online and in the sales section here :thumb:

    Also Depends totally on wether you’re buying a TX200HC or a TX200

    the HC can have a 1/2”unf MALE THREAD moderator fitted... or use an adapter

    the longer tx200 cannot... the barrel won’t allow it

    you can get Male/Male threaded adapters to allow you to fit any female 1/2” unf moderator (more common)

    with a HC you use a wide blade screwdriver to remove the plastic insert in the end of the barrel.

    to be honest you’re not going to gain much at all with a mod on a TX... the noise comes from the spring doing it’s thing and you can’t silence that.

    there’s very little muzzle crack with them.

    be careful because some moderators are calibre specific... .177 or .22

    a .22 pellet won’t travel through a .177 hole !

    I shoot a TX200 HC and I wouldn't bother with an additional silencer. The crack of the pellet hitting a rabbits skull will make more noise. I would buy a sling for it though :eek:.

    I found the AA silencer to be great, and had no effect on accuracy.

    I did get another HC that had the male HW silencer fitted so no need for adapters but this would change poi without it fitted

    As said above Action noise is more than shot noise . this is my TX200 after my first shot im in lane 1 there is a shot from lane 4 which is 3 meters away . ignor the bear trap but listen to the speed and sound of the the cycle / action noise

    ok ive worked on it . i started out tuning springers many years ago .but this is where your noise comes from the action

    Ive a @mattw975 mod on my HC, now whisper quiet. Looks great and excellent service.
    The action noise, beartrap, is another discussion altogether.
