  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, new to the forum and airguns. I have a BSA Superten carbine and wonder if any other owners have instructions on tuning the power. Using the CB-625 Chrono I currently have 11 FPS but would like to tweak it up a little within the 12 FPS limit ??:confused:

    Allright burt!

    Tweaking can be done by, tightening the hammer spring, But you need to realise that once you come over 12fpe, it will be classed as a firearm, and require license.

    Another thing to remember is that if the police actually want to test your rifle's power, (I personally don't know anyone that this has happened too, but i am assured that someones uncles, cousins, friends, brother has fallen foul of this!:rolleyes:), they can use whatever weight pellet they want, and if they get it up over 12fpe, then you are in the brown stuff.
    So if you go over 12fpe, you may as well go up to 30fpe as the punishment will be the same!
    Keep it no higher than 11.5fpe then you have nothing to worry about.

    Next you really need to realise that .5fpe make no actual difference anyway.
    Good luck!

    Well hey, if you've got shotguns, screw that baby up to max!!!.

    Get in touch with BSA and see if they can send you an FAC regulator.

    bsa tuning


    Hi Bert, im new to this place to. in regards to the tuning of you bsa seperten, their is a company called TR Robb(01268 752888), they can post you a full tuning kit including shims, longer exhaust valve and a selection of uprated hammer springs. They do a dvd to help you fit it yourself.

    if its in 22 try to avoid going over 25fps (fac licence required), as it starts to get less accurate.

    hope this helps

    bought the superten tuning kit from ebay. 1x dvd, 2 transfer port orings, 4 larger regulator orings and a better main spring. The DVD gave me all the info I needed to strip the gun so pleased with the kit. Unfortunatly I now need to turn some collets down so that I can strip the regulator down, clean it and check the seals, so will not be done yet.

    Jamessuperten, I also have some instruction on changing the spring now mate.

    not really mate except watch the dvd carefully then it will all make sense as you start stripping down the gun. I also ordered a seal and silicone kit from Uttings just incase I damage any oprings so by the time that arrives I should have the collets made so I can take the regulator apart without damaging the casing. To increase the power you add shims in the regulator which I forgot also came with the ebay kit, but I may try fitting a spacer behind the main spring first to see if this tweaks the power up a little. The DVD shows a spacer being removed from the spring to reduce power..

    i could sort you out a strip down/tuning guide and a brass rear hammer spring guide,which are better then trobbs allys as the threads are stronger.
    pm me if you are interested.
    in fact any thing bsa and im your man so any thing you need to know give us a pm.

    and yes over 11.5 you will go to jail with out doubt if police test it,i can get your rifle to get more shots,smoother bolt,lighter trigger and more consistent with the rear hammer spring,spring,regulator knock open valve and dead lock sorted.

    no no no you are going to brake your rifle,do not touch/strip your regulator!!!!
    you broke your rifle yet?
    well you are not going to have a consistent rifle and the slightest dust will destroy your reggy o rings,that dvd is for 30ft/ibs not a little 0.5.you may bend the valve stem,just so much can go wrong for 0.5ft/ibs?all you needed to do was shim your hammer spring.
    hope you read this in time as your going to have a big bill soon.

    Hi Martin. No I have not touched the regulator tube yet. So far I have dismantled the gun cleaning and replacing the buddy bottle seal and the transfer tube seals. I have also had a friend cut a 1/2 UNF thread on the barrel ready to fit a Wierach silencer as a recent demo showed just how poor the origional BSA silencers are.
