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.

    yes, just to add weight. not put much thought into it yet... will wait till i get the tube. but want to leave the barrel with the threaded part for the mod exposed and custom shape the inside of the end of the shroud to fit plush with the mod. will probably have to take some off the breach end at the sides (like the 98) so it doesnt fowl the stock. not done much research on self blueing kits and never used one before, id imaging just one small part like that wouldnt be too expensive to get professionally done? but willing to try it myself?
    not sure i want to keep the standard mod, still thinking about a heavier blued steel one which will mean the end of the shroud will have to be shaped to fit whatever mod i get...

    what you thinking some O rings between the barrel and tube, then trap the tube between the breech block and silencer

    potentially could work very well

    I did mine and added 60mm for a few baffles, gives a lot of control at the front but the only caveat is that you may need to weight the stock to balance the gun up

    anyone offer any tips on how to secure it to the barrel? would you use threadlock or maybe two part epoxy resin?

    Have you access to a lathe to get a taper turned on the breech end?

    that is i kind gesture, thanks:up: i was going to grind either side down 1mm for about an inch depending on new stock fit/clearance, sort of similar to the 98's barrel... which is going to be a little tricky... was thinking of making a jig of some sort to hold the shroud straight and get both sides parallel to each other using the side of the bench grinder grinding wheel?

    When I tried this I didn't get as good a result as a weighted silencer.

    It's not just a matter of weight, it's whether the weight is distributed or pushed further out towards the end.

    I found the weighted silencer nailed muzzle flip and didn't offset the gun's balance. The shroud was less effective at mitigating muzzle flip, probably due to the majority of its weight not being at the end of the barrel where it is needed.

    It was an improvement, but not as good as a weighted silencer.

    Just my own experience - others may enjoy different results :)

    i understand, i have weighted the mod with an extra 100grms the shroud will only be about 7 and a half inchs long... its as much for looks as extra weight.
