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.

  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.

Should I get my ultra regulated

    I've just got a bsa ultra .22 ten shot, second hand. The only downfall is that I'm only getting around 30 good shots, which is a nuisance to keep refilling.
    I'm thinking of getting it regulated, a gauge put on and a service.

    my question is.....

    will i get the so called 60-80 shots when regulated ? And if any, what damage could it possibly cause in the long run?

    and how do they do it exactly ?

    30 in .22 is rather poor,we got 30 in .177 before regulating and now we get 65 full power,consistent shots after having it XTX regg'd

    Also I wouldn't bother with a gauge if it's regulated as you will know when it's down,it's so consistent you could even count the shots to 1 or 2 before it needs a refil.

    I bought a couple of them pellet holders with the holes in so i could put the right number of pellet in and i knew when a refill was due cos there were no pellets left in the holder. Oh and this was also to deal with the 30 good shots from my .22 Ultra before power really dropped off.

    Our Ultra is perfect from the 1st to 65th shot then within 2-3 shots you can hear the gun change totally,that's why we didn't bother with a gauge

    Ok that's great advice, I thought that it might help with the guage, but as you've now mentioned that it's pretty consistent to the end. I don't see much point.

    what other mods could I do if I were looking to do so. Because as you can tell..... I'm new to pcp's

    Thats why i was thinking about getting mine regged but to be honest it doesnt get shot enough so most likely will sell it to put toward my growing desire for my first proper ft rifle.

    Air Arms S400s make good FT rifles,the FTP/EV2s are high end FT rifles and the S400 MPR is a fantastic FT rifle...all made by Air Arms :rolleyes:

    funny you should say that I was looking at an s400 mpr ft at the club today. My only concern is the lack of regulator - not sure it would be any better than my HW100 in a custom stock? Interested in your thoughts and also if you have an opinion as to what would be a sensible price for a very nice mpr secondhand?
    Apologies for the thread hijack Welshdean - happy to receive a response by pm if its better etiquette:D

    I got my MPR brand new and really,it dosen't need a regulator and shoots better than most of the HW100s I've shot with,it also has an FT style stock as standard,and a rail for a hamster instead of tapping into the stock.

    This is mine,all nice and setup for FT.

    matty's mpr is awesome - once in the sweetspot, the shots are that consistant, you would think its regulated. from memory, i think he gets a good 70 shots from a fill to 170 bar down to 110 bar. as for price, they are rarely sold second hand, so hold their price well. i have seen mint one year old examples sold for £70 less than cost of new.
    matty has a uk neil airstripper on his, and can get 10 shots all within a 10p piece cluster at 60 yards or so. if you pm him, he will send you some good pics

    a regulator is the best upgrade to the ultra that you can make - you will be getting 80ish consistant shots. i wouldnt bother with the gauge - the shots drop off so rapidly, you dont need a gauge to tell you when - we just filled up, then shoot over the chrony, counting the shots down till they drop off, so we know how many shots we have.
    if you get darrin (xtx) to fit the reg, he will do an 'x tune' at the same time - you wont recognise it - have a look here for more details http://www.xtxair.co.uk/bsa-ultra-scorpion-hornet.php
    another alternative would be a john bowkett blueprint

    Steve, has Matty noticed any difference in the amount of wind pellets take with his stripper fitted.
    I've been reading a few stripper threads just lately & the positive comments (plenty of negative ones too) suggest that while tightening group sizes benefits are also found in that the pellets take less wind & reduce the amount of holdover required due to an increase in fps down range.
    Apologies for taking the thread off topic
