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.

    Nope it’s just what they’re designed to do. It’s a training replica and back garden plinking gun. 3ftlb is plenty for that and means you get many more shots from your CO2 cartridge.

    They are very prone to leaking , I had one when they first came out and they look and feel ok but the power is what you state and you cannot leave the 90/88c02 canister in overnight , it needs to be used up in one session tbh, you can get adapters for the smaller 12g which is advised and they also do a HPA conversion from “best fittings”.
    I think they are pretty expensive for what they are even second hand. I can PM you more info on repairs etc if you do pick one up.

    But is it legal to run them at 12 foot pounds and is there a way to increase the power output or is 3 foot pounds literally the only option?

    :rules01:Do not post anything relating to the power adjustment of air rifles or pistols on any open forum - if you need advice on how to keep your rifle/pistol below legal limits ask for advice by Private Message.

    we 'cant' answer the power question,its a no no....
    with these having a folding stock the max you could legally run them at is 6ftlbs,max pistol power due to the design of the stock.
    i think they now make a 12ftlbs pcp,but im betting its there own co2 design running hpa as max presure is 1800psi BUT accuracy has been tested and its crap...pitty
    my mate is currently retro fitting a drone with an airsoft co2 operated gun that shoots 32 rounds a second,he wanted it to shoot 4.5mm steel bbs,i had to change his mind as it would be illegal,so airsoft it is :)

    People are discussing tuning and power adjustment on the forum all the time. If it's sub legal limits I really don't see an issue with it?

    Bit of knowledge from someone whose been aero-modelling for 44years:
    It's illegal to fire anything from a flying platform PERIOD no matter the power source and it's been this way for a very long time.

    Research it, should be on the BMFA and CAA websites.
    BMFA guidelines say small things can be dropped but must be (iirc) 100m from public.
    If yer Really brave, join a UK- centric modelling forum and ask, don't be insulted by the amount of venom you'll receive asking about it.

    Think about it, your firing from a flying platform from most likely a public place (pellets could breach private property boundaries) which is roughly the same as walking out your front door, setting up a target down the street and squiting rounds.
