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.

    Not sure I understand your post, but the Britannia had two stages for different power levels. If you mean patents they are just an advertisement unless you have enough money to enforce them.

    Replacement gun has arrived, with gas fitted, which is a nice touch. How long it lasts remains to be seen.
    The rechargeable 12g filling adapter has finally arrived. It has a female 3/4 " thread. I found a male 3/4 to male 1/2 inch coupler, so all I need now is a female 1/2 inch to 6 mm hosetail and some o rings to connect to my co2 cylinder and the cartridge itself.

    Hope it stays reliable for you.
    I took mine back to the dealer and gave him some more cash,came away with the Crossman 1077 Woodstock.
    The ASG has a better trigger than the Crossman but I could not get the gun to seal properly after the 2nd 88gram cylinder.
    Took it apart carefully (so dealer unaware) and really did not like what I saw inside.
    Already had Crossman apart (easy to do) and modded in line with You Tube videos.
    Great shame because the TAC shoots well ,is accurate,and very cheap to buy (maybe that's the problem?)
    Fingers crossed yours stays sound.

    Did you attempt to replace the seals?

    I had a look to see how accessible/serviceable the gun was.
    Split the guns stock /forend in two but noticed that in order to
    Get the alloy receiver apart it seemed necessary to also punch out the pins holding the plastic barrel shroud ln order to access the final receiver screw.
    The whole gun seemed to be too flimsy and at risk of breakage (of the plastic lugs etc) so I re assembled and exchanged it at dealer I purchased from.
    So no I did not replace seals.
    A shame because I really enjoyed using the gun.
    I was also concerned that the guns warranty was only 6 months.
    The 1077 also has some plastic construction,but there is a lot less of it (mine is the Woodstock version).

    Hoping it won't come to that but the guy from Pellpax who came to do the exchange said he expected to see me again! As for pins, I had to remove and refit the pin that secures the rear sight with no difficulty. Pins are common, for example, for retaining the main spring in break barrel rifles. But if the seals regularly fail frequently, then it's a hiding to nowhere. Pellpax give a 12 month warranty plus a lifetime warranty covering labour, but not parts or transit costs. However I expect to follow your example and exchange for a more reliable co2 repeater gun in the end.
    I have a more general question about refillable 12g co2 cartridges. Hopefully, with the filler adapter, it's as simple as refilling a gas lighter. However as co2 liquifies at 75 psi, to get 800 psi, there has to also be some compressed gas in the cartridge, (as per sparkling wine) because liquids cannot be compressed. Therefore, if you completely fill the cartridge with liquid co2, you will only get 75 psi, which is not much use!

    It's a great shame that (as far as I am aware)you cant buy a quality 'self loader.'
    I have a Logun sweet sixteen but obviously it cant cycle shots at the rate of the 1077 or the ASG.
    I love my indoor and short range back garden plinking/fun shooting.would love a true semi auto but dont want BB.
    My son has a semi auto Valken pcp paintball gun (looks like an M16) which shoots solid rubber or paintballs at close to 11.5 ft lbs, lovely to shoot.
    But strangely as airgun shooters we aren't allowed similar.
    Might get a good CO2 revolver, all metal , and a lots of fun.

    I see Jorge Sprave is working on something similar to that, if fires rubber balls now, but with large lead pellets, for the coming Zombie apocalypse when laws wont apply, so he says...

    36 shots so far. This time I am checking that the cartridge is secure, as it came loose before. Although a low recoil, I noticed that the scope bolts have already slackened.

    I would be wary if your gun replacement off pellpax already had a Co2 in it you probably got someone elses return, I think my AGS Tac is getting picked up a 8am tomorrow morn off pellpax they say it could be an hour either side of this, never mind by work just be there wth ID, but they dont answer emails or phone now, even dave the delivery man does not answer any texts it will be the last time I deal with them.

    Thanks for the warning. However, if it came with an empty cartridge and didn't work that might be the case, but there's gas in there and it works, so far, and it looks brand new.

    Still using the can they gave me. Your experience was similar to mine, but worse. Getting better results with the exact pellets. After inserting them, I seat them with the end of a Jack plug. Any that fail to seat (only 1 so far) I remove and discard.

    Good news is that pellpax now have the crosman 1077 synthetic back in stock at £110 + 20 delivery. At 500 fps, its 20% less powerful than the asg and diminishes down to 200 before the 12g of co2 runs out, if reliability as as good as claimed, then I'll probably go for it as an exchange if, or when, the asg fails again. Also, spare mags are cheap and readily available.

    It diminishes down to 200 before the 12g of Co2 runs out, do you mean 200 shots to a 12g surely not. PainterMan

    Not so good at 15 metres. Only 30% in the bull, although all within 6 cms.
