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.

Advice Ten Shot Pellet Pistol

    Occasionally, one of the clubs I (used to :confused:) attend has an informal ten-shot rapid fire competition over 20 yards. Most of the club members use 22lr semi-automatic firearms, but the last time it was run, I still had a Smith and Wesson 586, but got rid of it soon after.
    If we ever get to go out to clubs again, I have half a mind to have another go, but as I have no intention of getting into firearms, I will need to get a ten-shot pellet firing air pistol.
    Other than the 586/686 what other suitable bits of kit can anyone recommend?
    The Crosman Vigilante does not appeal, and the only other pistols I can think of are the polymer Colt Python using pellet magazines or the Umarex Tornado, also using python pellet mag's, but both of these are smooth bore, so may struggle over 20 yards. o_O
    If I end up going down the S&W route again it won't be too much of a problem, but I just don't feel the love for them as many other owners do. :p

    Any advice would be most welcome. :thumb:

    Crosman 600 is 10 shot, true semi-auto, but is .22 and not cheap.

    HW44 is 10 shot but probably not what you’re thinking of ;).

    The rimfire guys must be using rifles so why not even up your chances?

    There are a good many using long barrel pistols; also, I just can't get excited about rifles...

    Now sorted with the shiny 586 on its way from the other forum. It has had some modifications, but is claimed to work properly, and was a good price which included six magazines.
    Looking forward to getting my mitts on it. :D

    Just bought a faulty one from firefox99 with a 4 inch barrel. At the very least it will make me one very good one with two barrels, and lots of spares, or one good one and one clunker! :thumb:

    Back on another thread when I was 'ranting' about the poor fit on the rubber grips :p I remember you saying it was a really easy fix, would you be able to share what it is you do to sort them out? :rolleyes:

    Consider this some consumption of humble pie, retracting my previous statements, or other similar metaphors... :D

    20200618_173644.jpg The S & W 10 shot is a fine pistol and for me one of the most accurate.
    I used mine at Bisley with an eight inch barrel in 2001 not long after they came to the market.

    I'd be interested in hearing this as well in case there is a better fix than the one I came up with on mine.

    I recently picked up a well used 586 glossy and the right hand grip was slipping quite a bit when using the pistol which was really annoying.

    I also have a fairly new 686 with little to no movement on the right hand grip so after taking the left hand grips off both, on the 686 the metal pin that holds in the CO2 lever and acts as the pivot was flush to the left hand side of the frame, leaving a larger amount of pin protruding from the right hand side. The pin was also locked in place or just really stiff, with no movement under finger push pressure. There is a recess on both grips that that pin fits into when the right hand removable grip is re-attached.

    On the older 586, that pin was fairly free in movement so must have been worked on several times in the past as it will slide back and forth with minimal pressure. As there is also a recess on the left grip, the pin can slide back into it leaving a really small protrusion on the right side to hold the grip in place. To try and ensure that more pin is available for the recess on the right grip, I stuffed the recess on the left grip with kitchen towel (just to test so easy to remove). Packed it in fairly tight as to push the pin back to the right as much as possible.

    Seems to have done the trick, the right grip now has the same amount of movement as on my much newer 686 and isn't noticeable to the point of annoyance when shooting. I just need to do something more permanent with that left hand grip recess.

    Hopefully there are other ways to secure it even further

    Oh Yeah! :D

    After a blast of around 100 pellets and a bit of fondling, I am really liking my 'new' old 586, the glossy blue finish is superb. I am sure they changed it for cost reasons, but the matt one I had previously was so lifeless and toy-like, I just did not feel the love, it had no soul... :(

    Hope the range can re-open soon and they run another zombie rapid fire competition!

    until mine went faulty, i loved my 586. although it was a bit loud for my small back garden and yes, the righthand grip is a bit wobbly, the retaining screw doesn't appear to do anything

    there are a LOT of moving parts inside, so taking it apart is not for the faint-hearted. i tried to fix mine, I just didn't have the patience or skills

    It is but not too bad, probably not great for a prolonged standing session.

    I recently picked up a chrono so next time I get the set out I want to record the differences in power between barrels.

    I also have the original silencer that came with the set, it looks ridiculous with the 8" and the silencer attached

    I've just converted a Crosman 2250b to a .177 with a G-Mac 10 shot conversion. Here's a few photographs: 1) .177 10 Shot 2250b.JPG 2) .177 10 Shot 2250b.JPG 3) .177 10 Shot 2250b.JPG

    i found the 586 with the 6" barrel too heavy for standing shooting.

    it's a lot of fun to fire though
