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.

    Started to push the newly acquired classic MK1 80 today lads as we finally got a short break from the strong winds.

    The spinners are 25mm, 12mm and 7mm I believe, once I had tweaked her one click up and two singular clicks left on the red bulls eyes she missed nothing.
    The Falcon Acc` Plus worked those very well made spinners big time.

    Hi Reevo,
    No mate, I was told she is completely untouched ?
    All the stock screws are as good as the day she was made, 1983.
    She's full on with power and accuracy, so I,m thinking to just enjoy her for what she is , a beautiful old rifle. :thumb:

    My Mk1 was 18 from the box :eek: most were when they first came out. No one had a chrono in those days apart from RFDs and most of them were iffy pendulum and sledge types. Mine was chrono'd by Gerald Cardew on his homemade electronic one at the first Venom Field Target shoot, "Must be dieselling son, it'll settle down after a few shots on the plinking range" :facepalm: Being new no one believed a springer could put that type of power out as standard.

    That’s mad!

    I’ve recently short stroked mine and fitted a 97 spring - much more manageable in terms of power control now.... I love the 80 for its size but the lack of preload on the spring and huge volume isn’t the best for sub 12.

    Didn’t have shoot ice at 16 though lol

    What’s the spring? New spring or the original big fat one?

    Good shooting!

    My export fat spring had around 5mm

    And although it was nice to shoot I could still feel a little piston bounce

    The 97 spring combined with 12mm short stroked filled the whole cylinder so circa 1”
