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.

Shots from a BSA Ultra

    Hi all, I have a BSA Ultra SE. I know it's not the highest capacity air supply but how many shots are you getting from yours?

    I do find, and I hope its normal, that when shooting at targets, after about 3 mags (30 pellets) have been shot, the pellets drift down and right by about 1 1/2 inches at 25 - 30 yards. When I refill its back on target.

    On another note, if anyone can help, I bought a new Simmons scope for the rifle but just can't get consistent results from it. I thought it was me, and replaced it with the no name 40mm sight I had lying around, and the shooting was accurate again. I was going to sell it on here but withdrew it as I thought it may be no good. I put it back on today, zeroed it but consistency was no good.

    Cheers, David

    in a distant galaxy, far far away ....... actually
    Darrin (xtx), turned a great rifle into an amazing rifle with the tune and regulator on our .177 ultra.
    before ; 40 shots, at best 20 were usable (maximum spread of 30fps), rest were crap.
    after ; 60+ shots, all consistant (maximum spread of 8fps).
    basically, over 300 % increase in usable shots, and nearly 400 % increase in shot consistancy. best upgrade to a rifle you can make, the figures are proof mate

    A reg really makes the Ultra, well worth it: I get 65 shots on target from mine, and that's with a .177, and very accurate it is too. :)

    Excellent, thanks for that. On pay day (15th Sept) I get my other gun, HW100, so when that arrives I will strip and send to XTX and have the job done.

    sorry to hijack this thread - is it possible to replace the Ultra's air cylinder with the Scorpion's to increase shot capacity? And if so is it worth doing compared with going down the XTX regulated route?

    Yes the cylinder will fit straight on, but their will still be a power curve!

    also, a silencer with a 28mm diameter or less will have to be used, and this is how it looks:)

    I replaced the original cylinder as the longer one put the balance off.

    I'm struggling to get on with my un-regulated .177 Ultra, the POI shift before and after the sweet spot is so annoying, When pulling the trigger on live quarry it's a worry that the pellet will not be on target.

    Until I can get it booked in with Darrin for a Reg I'm back using the r10 for a while.
