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.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    My mags show pellet and BB etched on it, but I only shoot pellets so I've not tried, and wouldn't in case the rifling was damaged.

    I think you could fire steel BBs through it, but the barrel is rifled. To me, that means BBs are a definite no-no unless you are going to use it exclusively for BBs and accept that the barrel is going to be ruined for certain.

    I have a dual fuel but would never use steel bb. Instead you can use ASG Blasters Plastic. And they are fast.

    I had one. It said pellet or BB on mine. Not a big fan of them to be honest. Not very accurate at all. Not field strippable.

    Prefer an SA10 or Glock Dual Ammo any day.

    Thanks for the info the other day. I got some blasters and immediately ordered more . 450fps and they shatter well too.

    I have one of these P226 8x2 mags pellet/bb.
    Bought lightly used, precision was complete rubbish. But after correcting and securing the barrel it is very good. But I think most examples would need this fix.
    Example here:


    I also had problems with shots not going off. I initially thought they got stuck and tested all kinds of pellets and lubrication. Finally concluded that it was the magazine not feeding/rotating correctly, adding lubrication only made it worse... Two new mags and a complete cleaning later it works very well!

    Should a brand new pistol really have to be "modded" in order to get it accurate?

    No, of course not, but that is the way it seems to be? And not really more complicated than changing a tube on your bike.
    Punch out a couple pins (2mm puncher)+ two small phillips screws. Wipe clean. Add some aluminium tape where needed, reassemble. :)

    yes, it appears cheaper to order from the UK, but you need to add the UK seller's £25 delivery fee PLUS your RFD "receiving" fee (£20?)

    so..£133 from SWS to your door

    or about.. £160 from that uk seller

    i think we would all love to support our local gun shops but if you don't have one right on your doorstep, using a UK seller is very expensive

    which of course invalidates any warranty on a new gun, and if you mess it up and/or lose any parts, or can't get it back together, you have a very expensive paperweight

    considering these are £140 guns, you would expect the barrel to be at least secured ok
