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.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

Terrrw*t! (for R10 Owners) Stuck Mag?

    What a 24 carat Censored I am...! :(

    Finished work at 4(ish) so got out a couple of the rifles to clean and oil, including the R10.

    Took the stock off the R10, gave it a nice oil, gave the action / barrel a clean too, then noticed I had left the 3D printed single shot loading mag in (it was empty), so I tried to pull it out, but it would not budge?
    Tried again, nope not budging at all. Had a good look round it, nothing obvious blocking it, bolt deffo pulled all the way back, hmmm, scratches head for a bit...
    Tried again, still not coming out, so I thinks, maybe its just got a bit stuck as its been in there a while, since pre the lockdown, and I did not use it for a few wees before the lockdown, so a fair few weeks (maybe 6 to 8 weeks).

    This mag is a nice @ddark one, bit like the Rowan one, eg: side flips out (manually not auto) but in plastic not metal and its very well made and I have never had any issues with it, it has always worked great, so I am perplexed?

    I try again, a bit more forceful this time, still won't budge, I try tapping it gently with a small centre punch, nope, I try easing it out with a small screwdriver, nope.
    This goes on for about 20 minutes and I am now really starting to get frustrated.
    I even try pulling it out (gently) with some pliers, nope!

    But then, I have a *LIGHTBULB* moment.... :)

    Its a bloody R10 aint it, its got that stupid little button on the action, just in front of the mag, that locks the mag in place, and oh silly me, I had not released the button, so I press the button and out it comes easy as pie!!! :thumb:

    I am so glad I did not damage the gun, as I was getting desperate and (as an old plumber) that usually results in me just getting a bigger hammer!
    I did however slightly damage the 3D printed mag, couple of small scratches on one side!
    Oh well lesson learnt....

    So, R10 owners, if you are having trouble getting the mag out, before you resort to tools, make sure you have flipped the mag release button first! :facepalm:

    .... and breathe..... :D

    It happens I had a stuck Daystate mag in my Saxon it was a very old DS mag and I wish to . I had never used it. Unfortunately for me I have the attention span of a dead rat. So after a few feeble attempts to move it I dragged out an old toffee hammer and gave it a small tap the bloody hammer slipped and I scratched the action mind you the mag did go flying across the floor.

    Sometimes a pellet (short) gets mangled and the mag can be hard to remove. Removing The mag stop plate helps, but that’s another story
