    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.

Silencer on a Crosman 2250xl

    Ihave just fitted a silencer to the above. Without the silencer the gun is very accurate with the fitted scope. However its now miles out several inches infact. No matter how I tried I cant zero the scope. If I take the silencer off I can adjust it back very quickly. So the silencer is causing the pellets to fly all over the place. Any help or suggestions?

    I found the same with silencers on my Crosmans too. So I now have just small muzzle brakes.

    It's likely to be because the silencer isn't properly aligned and pellets are touching some part of the internals causing them to go anywhere. If the silencer is a loose fit on the barrel before tightening the grub screw then that is likely to be the problem. You may be able to use some tape wrapped around the muzzle to hold the adapter/silencer in the correct alignment. I did have this problem on one and solved it with a single turn of insulating tape cut so that there was no overlap and thus making it the same all round but it depends on how loose it actually is.

    The 2250xl already has a half inch unf thread on the end of the barrell, so no adaptor neeeded.

    OK, the alignment of the silencer is determined by the two mating faces, the one at the end of the barrel thread and that on the rear of the silencer. These are not always machined accurately which can cause the silencer to be forced out of line. Trying another silencer may solve the problem but if the face on the barrel has been machined out of square then it will need to be re-cut.
    Another option, a bit drastic, is to open out the holes in the silencer to allow more clearance, if you can strip it you may be able to see signs of pellet strikes with small pieces of lead or lead smeared on the internal parts. Basically you will have to try and identify the problem by a process of elimination and you have already limited it to the silencer being fitted so hopefully you will be able to sort it without too much trouble.

    I'm pretty sure if you examine the inside of the silencer you'll find evidence of pellets touching on the way out, shaved of pieces of lead usually. If you can correct the poor alignment of the silencer then it should be sorted.
    If the cause is poor machining of the barrel I'd send it off the be machined accurately.

    I did try a different silencer and had the same problem. Looking at the barrell end of the 2250xl the adaptor thingy is just slightly loose and I think is where the problem lies. I can see a small allen screw on it so maybe tightening this up will cure the problem. Only getting it lined up might be trial and error. Will update.
