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.

    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.'

  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.

    After reading good reviews about this little silencer, I thought I would take a punt and try one, to start off with, a big thanks to andyz100 for going out his way to buy the mod and send up north in the post,

    thanks again Andy:up:

    The mod measures 138x32mm, the internals are 6 punched felt baffles with 6 punched washers. The mod is well finished with very flat black anodizing. Out of the box it works very well and would be more than adequate for hunting purposes, and also keeping the neighbours happy when plinking in the garden:)

    i tested it against a hw silencer and was surprised to find it just a fraction louder with the stumpy being 60mm shorter!! the wife couldn't tell the difference!!

    Me being me, I thought can this mod be improved, so I decided to give it a bash with some Diy imternals. I reduced it down to 4 chambers using the original punched washers and 20mm diameter pvc pipe, wrapped in 5mm thick wool felt. The new internals have made it even better, I think the original felt baffles are a bit to dense, and don't absorb enough of the sound/blast.

    As said, out the box this little mod is definatly a contender and keeps a rifle compact, if your after a smaller mod, the stumpy is worth punt:)

    Highly rate the stumpy I have one on my huntsman and very quiet it is. The full length swift matched the HW silencer and is or was a few quid cheaper. Only reason I didn't go with the full length swift is it ruins the sleek lines of the huntsman.

    Nice compact mods these , glad you fettled it inside surprising how they can be quieter.
    i bought one years ago second hand.
    from memory it had 7 chambers with big thick rolls of felt in each chamber. Ide guess 10 mm internal through eack felt roll.
    as you wasn't happy this one was pants,3 curlers 2 washers re used and a little felt around curlers.
    i couldn't measure db but it was massive improvement.
    against my hogan their was a differance in how it sounded but I couldn't tell if it was louder it was certainly close.
    but over original internals the 99 p shop curler was bang on .
    I like the size and weight on these too .

    your internals look diff to what I had ,must have changed them some time back .
    nice job re working it ,satisfying work

    thats my internals in the picture mate, it still comes with the felt rollers, which work fine, but thought they were to dense a felt and used up to much of the mods volume. Green pan scourer was to open, the 5mm felt was perfect.

    sometimes less is more:)
