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.

Smk B2 Deluxe Barrel Not Breaking

    Hi there,
    I just bought an SMK B2 deluxe this morning and I've gone to try it out in my garden but I cannot break the barrel.
    I understand there is a catch/release mechanism but I'm pushing as hard as I can and it won't break the barrel.
    Am I doing something wrong, or is it faulty?
    I apologise if this is a stupid question, it's my first air rifle :)

    Cheers,
    Oliver

    I'm presuming that you are sliding the catch forward ? And pulling the barrel down
    And not just pushing down , as without the catch moved , the barrel stays locked up

    Hi, thanks for replying.

    I’ve pushed it forward, down, tried breaking the barrel, nothing is moving at all. The catch just moves forward freely and then won’t go any further and the barrel does nothing.

    Not at all, it moves back and forth easily but any amount of force seems to do nothing

    Have you looked on YouTube for videos on the rifle. It should show how it's supposed to work. If yours doesn't break the barrel as seen in a video then I'd definitely take it back mate...

    I would drop the action out of the stock to see whether the catch has worked loose ... if not, take it back to the shop you got it from for replacement or full refund

    Is it a new gun that you've bought then take it back if none of the suggestions that people have made work. If it's not something simple the the gun shop can't fix themselves and it's less than 30 days since you purchased it under the Consumer Rights Act (formerly the Sale of Goods Act 1975) you are entitled to a replacement or refund. After 30 days the seller has the right to repair a faulty item but of course if it can't be repaired you are still entitled to a replacement or refund.
    If you bought it privately of someone then you have virtually no redress, it's a case of 'Caveat Emptor' in other words let the buyer beware.

    Is the screw done up on the lever you push to open the barrel or if you undo the screw has the lug snapped off or miss aligned

    Thanks for your replies everyone.

    I took it back to the seller yesterday. He struggled with the catch but eventually managed to release it, but offered a replacement because it shouldn’t have been that difficult.

    Took the new one home and finally got round to some plinking and I’m happy with it.

    Thank you all for your help and advice.

    It's great to hear you got it sorted @Oliver533 ! Now it's time to have some fun. As @Buckshot said, there are no stupid questions. If there's anything you need to know, just ask. It's what the Forum is all about...
