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.

    hi, im after a bit of help with my jackel cocking lever , recently gave it a bit of a service, as i was just finishing noticed the srcew/bolt which holds the cocking arm to the cylinder once you have cocked it (basically the bit which stops the cocking arm shooting back at you when you pull trigger its a Tshaped bolt theres a threaded hole on the cylinder where you place the bolt , anyway was very loose so tightened it up with a pair of pliers , i may have over tightened it cos i no longer can release the cocking arm i think it jammed, i dont want to damage the bluing by forcing a screwdriver to force it out , does any body have any ideas i had thought about hacksawing it off but i aint got a replacement and i would be gutted if i damage the finish of the metal . any help would be smashing lads ,thanks

    Just looked at my SE90 to see which screw/bolt you mean but it's not immediately clear. Have you got a pic of the bolt you mean?

    Found it! Checked mine and it's only finger tight but never had a problem with it coming loose (unlike the stock bolt; the moderator grub screws and anything else concreted in). Presumably the T piece is no longer horizontal (i.e. flats parallel to the stock). Can you get a small open ended spanner on the T (or mole grips with cardboard or leather on the jaws to protect the T and just untighten till its horizontal?

    Its 25 years since I stripped one of these, so.... You've jammed the cocking lever shut because you've overtightened the latch (t) bolt. Cocking arm will close, but not open? So you have removed the axis pin at the other end and removed the cocking arm? To fix the Latch (t) bolt degrease it and its threaded hole then studlock/ areldite it back in the correct position. Is the "clothespeg" the latch part attached to the cocking arm? It may well be that you have the T bolt half a turn too tight (so it will close, but cant open). Unscrew it counting turns. Then screw it back in again the same number of turns - but minus a half turn, when you find the "sweet spot" studlock the little b****r!;)
