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.

Steyr Quick Fill With Foster Male

    The Steyr fill probe is difficult to insert because the O rings a well 'ard. Don't want to replace the originals in case they are well 'ard for a reason.

    I read on here that the HW probe works with the Steyr, flippin' heck gave mine away the other day:facepalm: Ordered a new one, arrived yesterday, tried it, fits and then as the pressure builds the first o ring blows out the far side of the fill port. Hmmmmmm.

    Fit a 3x6mm o ring to the shoulder of the probe so the probe doesn't seat as deep, second o ring blows out the front part of the port. Try a 2mm buffer o ring, first seal bows out again. Bit of comparing and checking, the o rings are much further apart on the HW probe than on the Steyr.

    Bit of googling throws up this ebay listing. Mushty says "This model will fit AGT, Edgun, Uragan, HW100 101 110 (all Weihrauch models with quick fill) AND Steyr rifles with the 'HW quickfill' system - standard HW100 probes on the Steyr can and do blow their o-rings past the fill hole."

    I have used this seller before, so I have ordered it.

    The HW probe isn’t a good fit.
    You will get through a million o-rings and end up getting the right connector anyway!
    Just buy a genuine Steyr from the main U.K. agent and accept those rock hard o-rings are fit for purpose.

    They are not unreasonably expensive and considering how much the rifle or pistol will have set you back in the first place you really should stop being so tight! :p

    Why is this a concern to you? Unless....? :p

    As above the HW probe is unsuitable. The one in the link may or may not fit both but I don't see the point of replacing the original probe since the issue is with the O-rings. Mine were replaced with (IIRC) 70-shore Nitrile and have been fine so far; lubrication and care doubtless help. Alternatively you could even try 90-shore Nitrile as the originals potentially feel even harder.

    End of the day as long as you can get the originals off without wrecking them there's no harm in chucking on some softer Nitrile efforts to see how you go.

    I'd say you need to reign in your "urge to tinker" @sagalout
    You're in a different league now with the H5 and I certainly wouldn't mess with any of it.
    Lube the o rings on the factory probe and use it.

    Save the tinkering for "lesser" brands

    Kinda worked that out :)

    I have lubed it and it has not cured the tendency for the probe to bang against the fill port as it seats because of the force needed to insert. If the multi fit probe from ebay works then it's all sorted if it don't I will have to try some 70 shore Nitrile on the original probe.

    Hardly tinkering Rob!

    Cheers Shane, that will be my next move if the general fit one don't work, but looking at it it think it will because he has reduced the gap between the o rings.

    I use two 1.5x5 on steyr probe and also push one onto probe base so it doesn’t slam into the cylinder

    Why not replace the O rings on the Steyr probe?

    I've the original fill probe, never needed to lube it and it locates in with a gentle push.

    I'm trying to avoid doing that in case I can't get it to seal afterwards. Having just spent £BIG on the gun and scope I figured another £9 for a fill probe allowing me to keep the original in the box untouched ain't a big deal.

    The front seal slides in but the back one catches and then needs a hard push to go past the shoulder resulting in the "nut" of the probe wakking the fill port.
