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.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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.

    Today I realised that my s200 magazine has been shredding my probe o-ring, from the help of "Mattys". So i decided to have a go taking the ten shot conversion kit off and putting the single shot loading tray on, which I managed to do very easily. I realised that it had been shredding the o ring and effecting the accuray and power of it! So,hopefully I will be shooting great groups tomorrow!

    If it was the pellet probe then the accuracy should be the same whether 10 or single shot.

    If not then it's probably a magazine alignment issue with either a burr cutting your O-ring or deforming your pellets!

    are you aware you can adjust the magazines alignment so it doesn't cause this? if its un-aligned, re-aligning it should also make cocking and loading smoother too.

    regards

    If you have a look at the magazine holder that you took off, there's a hole in the bottom of it with a little grub screw inside (accessible from the underside on the left when installed on the rifle. Screw this in and out with an Allen key to adjust the alignment of the magazine and solve your shredded probe o ring problem :)

    If your target shooting i preffer the single shot tray and gently push/slide the pellet into the barrel with my finger nail, then push the bolt home.
    I feel even a correctly alligned 10 shot mag wears the oring faster then just single shot, so get multiple replacements if you continue to use the mag system.

    I have been using the single loading tray all day and I really like it,you can actually see the state of your pellet which I like, and it sounds stupid but its a nice change fron the simplicity of the magazine, it also saves a hell of a lot of pellets as you don't get the urge to "just finish the mag off"

    A good single shot breech is easy peasy to use, I've got to say, the s200 has one of the worst :) I'm planning on making a flared single shot tray to fit them....
