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.

    Got a new target for my birthday today! (Though it's not my birthday until Monday, it arrived early...)

    Had allot of fun shooting it out in the yard at 7.5m Definitely my favorite target so far!

    In case nobody reads the video description. The reason the quality gets progressively worse is because it was getting very dark so i had to keep boosting the ISO to be able to see anything :laff:

    My folks got me one of these for Xmas a few years ago. Often take it to the range for something a little different. Great fun.

    Tyew :3 It's definitely more challenging than the standard flip target or the paper ones. I don't find it overly difficult. SOOPAR funs doe! ^.^

    It's perfect for the CP2 in .177 too since the number of targets on the wheel is the same as the rounds in a single mag :3 On average so far i miss one shot per try though i've now done it 3 times without missing a shot sooo #NotBad

    I needsta get a few more mags n then ima do some practicing and then time myself n see what the fastest is i can shoot em all down without missing :3

    I'm looking to design something similar as i have my own 3D printer. I wanted to buy the models for such a mag that i could print myself but nobody is selling any :(

    I might possibly just buy 1 at some point and reverse engineer it so i can print as many as i decide i want :3

    How much did you pay for them? I've not had any problems with the official ones and i found a site selling them for £11 each so was thinking of buying 5 of them if i don't end up doing 3D printed ones.

    Also plan to design a mag holder that attaches to the side of the gun that will hold them on with magnets :3

    I
    Ive brought those.

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SMK-ARTE...var=464149553177&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

    They work far better than the originals. I find the flat end wad cutters dont load as easy as round nosed pellets but this is to be expected with rubber band magazines.

    Got so fed up loading the originals that, I went to the single tray loader before buying off Ebay

    Yes, the link that MoggyM has given you is who I bought them from. I use a cocktail stick to seat the pellet in as they are a nice snug fit. There is also a mag holder somewhere but I’m sure you could do better, sounds like a good idea.

    Yeah i have seen these and my issue with them is the price iz awful considering how much it actually costs to manufacture them with a 3D printer. Taking in the raw material and the hardware, per single mag i could easily make them for about £4 each.

    Don't get me wrong tho, if he designed it himself, that is a bit of work. But he could sell them at £10 and easily make up for the cost in time of design. And he would be cheaper still than any of the official mag sellers.

    If he buys the hardware and the raw material in bulk then he could be producing them even cheaper.

    Hmmmm...... very interesting. What else could you make? Amazing machines, it’s like something out of Star Trek.

    Thank yew ^.^

    With a 3D printer you are only limited by your imagination...... and you ability to 3D model the thing you want xD

    Somewhat limited in terms of raw materials available but they have everything now form low temperature soft rubber and plastics up to metal, carbon fiber and even high temperature ceramic fill materials. Though to get the best out of those you preferably want to do a very slow baking process with a high temperature kiln after printing :3

    This is my most complicated model so far. It was a fully custom designed print head carriage for my old 3D printer:
    upload_2021-2-22_8-37-34.png upload_2021-2-22_8-37-53.png
    This part was designed so that during printing the printer would pause as certain areas and wait for me to continue it. I had left small voids inside so i could insert bolt nuts in several places so i could screw parts in and take them off with having an actual metal thread as 3D printed threads will chew up quickly especially if you are often removing and replacing parts.

    Note: The actual heat-sink in the very middle and the block at the bottom was a reference model i got online of the hot end i was designing the carriage to hold so that part i didn't model myself and just built around it :3

    I have the 'reflex' version of the spinning wheel, good fun and very well built.

    He's numbered the targets which produce the fastest spin if you want an extra challenge :)

    I find a red dot works well for these types of targets (at shortish range) - just me but I can keep both eyes open to track the target so the red dot is then a sort of 'HUD' (if that makes sense). Can pick them off in motion doing that rather than waiting for the pause of the swing :thumb:

    Yes a red dot might work for me; I struggle with open sights nowadays. I’ve still got eyes like a hawk (or eyes like an orc) but I do need reading glasses due to my advanced age. Which means I have to wear them when using the scope too, which I’m not happy about.

    Yeah i saw that one, but the price D: So when i saw this one on amazon with even more targets for less than half the price n my dad asked me what i wanted for my birthday, i was like "Target, gimme target!" xD

    I'm using the big ass chunky scope that came with Stoeger x20s xD I likes my magnifications :3 I had a long eye relief compact pistol scope on it originally but i found i didn't like it at all. At some point i plan to get a red dot and a compact acog to try on it. But i'm pretty sure i'll still prefer my rifle scope :3

    Hahaha #LoveThis xD

    Hmmmmm, maybe one of those weird looking diopter sights that was the subject of one of my other threads with a corrective lens would suit you better?

    Yeah they are a tad pricey so I don't blame you.

    The build quality is excellent though, made from thick steel and I like to support good old British manufacturing if I can, have got about 3 others of his ;)
