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.

  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.

    Can anyone recommend a gunsmith that can service and or repair a Shin Sung Career 707 in .22 ?

    My nearest gun shop has had the rifle for nearly 3 months with all manner of excuses as to why it cannot be serviced. Excuses range from people being on holiday to difficulty in obtaining parts, now they are saying you cannot get parts for it :frusty: having assured me they could do the job !

    The best way to describe the issue would be "loss of power", the rifle was fully charged but I noticed the pellet dropping very short of the target, did the usual checks for pressure, just in case the meter was incorrect, ie, showing full when actually empty. Rotated the power adjustment back and forth, but still no improvement, my suspicion is that the valving is stuck, ie, a full discharge of air is not occurring.
    I have the service dvd and have looked at all the relevant tools which are now available on ebay to do the job, but I really do not have the time nor patience to start taking it apart and fiddling.
    I intend to get the rifle back at the end of the week, think it is time to move it on, so instead of it being a rather large paper weight I would like to get it operational for someone else. It is a real shame, despite it being loud, it has always performed superbly well.
