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.

    Hello, I'm new to this forum and have a question that someone may be able to help me with.

    i have just got a new BSA XL Tactical springer as IV been getting a bit annoyed during the colder months with my Co2 rifle with the colder temperatures. I'm loving the rifle but it's about as loud as hitting a metal bin with a shovel. I have found that it has a standard 1/2" UNF but I only have one UNF suppressor.

    so here's the issue, the rifle is .22 and my suppressor is a Hogan Decimeater in .177. Now I understand that the .177 suppressor has a smaller exit hole and that this should affect the rate in which the gas escapes and may cause a reduction in velocity due to this issue. But my question is this, will using this suppressor on my rifle affect the accuracy and more importantly will it damage either my rifle or suppressor. I have checked and the hole is large enough for a .22 to easily pass through.

    also, yes I'm aware that buying a .22 suppressor is probably the best option :)

    Hello,

    I have used a BSA VC silencer on a .22 set up to be used on a .177 with no problem

    The exit hole was just big enough too let a .22 pellet pass through. I have used a lot of silencers, and not one has affected velocity or accuracy, saying that your poi could change but probably only a few clicks.

    If the exit hole is bigger than the .22 pellet, and everything is concentric then it should be fine.

    Or you could always treat yourself to a nice MWS200:up:

    in a distant galaxy, far far away ....... actually
    i think that the hogan decimeater is suitable for both .177 and .22 cal. by fitting it, the rifle wont be damaged, and the only damage to the suppressor will be if the pellet clips the internals (if its not concentric to the barrel). as for a reduction in power or performance - this wont happen. in fact the closer the exit hole diameters are in relation to the pellet diameter, the better the suppressor will work.

    As posted above, you shouldn't have any trouble using the moderator on your rifle, OP. The Mattw975 referred to above is a member of the forum who makes custom moderators from Delrin which are very effective and attractively priced.

    Thanks for all of the advice. I will crack on with that then. And I'm afraid that I'm not selling my Hogan, it's too nice to sell ;-)

    I'm sure I have the box and instructions somewhere but as expected, can't find either. Thanks for letting me know guys. Not sure why I thought it was a .177 only. All I know is that the hogan works great on air pistols as well as my rifle which is why I will not be getting rid of it :)
