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.

    I voted for old skool but where's the under lever option ?...

    As for the break down of the 'Lightning' you'll struggle to find anything on t'internet, they seem to be a bit of a mystery...

    Has it the 'Maxi-Grip' scope rail ?...

    That's the b****r, getting it off is the easy bit, putting it back on is a whole other story 'unless' you know how that is... o_O

    Is it the bolt-on rail then or the older slide-on version ?...

    Ps, add under-lever to my vote as well...

    As a rule I dislike pcp’s but the 97 I’ve just gotten rid of nearly tipped me back over to the dark side again...

    It's a bolt that screws into to the spring casing that holds a cap inside

    Rite, firstly remove the action from the stock, there's a cross pin that holds the mainspring and guide in so yer safe to remove the Allen key bolt at the back of the rail, then get a piece of wood and a small hammer and knock the rail "forward" until it pops off, that's that done...

    Don't lose the two rubber strips, these are what cushion the action and rail from each other...

    There's a plastic cap in the back of the action and a metal block this should just drop out once the action has been removed from the stock and the bolt at the back of the rail is also removed...

    Next you'll need to find an old socket to fit inside the back of the action, then cut two slots in it to go either side of the mainspring retaining pin, slide up inside the action and apply some weight to the end of the spring guide via the socket, push the pin out and the mainspring and guide is free to be removed...

    To get the piston out you need to take a particular part of the trigger mechanism out but this is where it gets sketchy fer me as it's been a long time since I last worked on one...

    Hope this helps... :thumb:

    I've got a feeling that I've still got the socket that I adapted, if I can find it I'll let you know and I'll send it to you... :thumb:
