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.

  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.

    Hi All
    With all this isolation business going on i decided to dust down my 20 plus years old 2.2 fenman and it was crap. Granted i wouldn't like to be shot up the arse with it but i was dissapointed with it's performance.
    Does anyone know what power these where putting out in their prime. I put mine through my cheap chinese chrono and was 520 fps with jsb jumbos .
    Has anyone any suggestions on how to rejuvenate the old girl and please be kind lol. I don't want to scrap her.
    Many thanks Blaster

    I've just given my 1.77 fenman a puff of air to bring it up to 11.3 ft lbs, it had dropped down to 8.1 over the course of many years.
    I'm guessing yours is running at about 9.5 ft lbs, it's really easy to add a bit of air to these guns but you need to be careful of the valve and must get a well fitting adapter. I got mine from best fittings ( no idea if they are closed now for the duration or still open) and used a Hills pump. Wouldn't recommend an air tank as it only takes a little air to make a real difference and you could easily damage things.
    I searched on here for information on how to do it and found loads of good stuff.
    Fenmans are really pretty, and although my 1.77 he is a snappy awkward thing to shoot well I really like it. Apparently the 22 is the pick of them so well worth fiddling with.

    It probably just needs a bit of air in it, you need to find someone or a gunshop with the right pump and adaptor unless you have one yourself. Looks like its doing just over 9.5 ft.lbs so it doesn't need much as these are really sweet to shoot between 10.5 and 11.
    Just noticed your location, ironically we would have been on the Wirral this week in the caravan if it wasn't for the lockdown. :(

    Welsh Willy pumped mine up (using my adapter, as he didn't have one). Found that the valve needed a nip up.
    I've now got a stirrup pump (bought for pcp, before obtaining a tank). My Gun may need doing again, as hardly used for a few years :( That planted an idea of time management during lockdown :)

    Thanks very much for your help with my theoben problem, it's been quite eye opening .i never realised how the mechanism worked i presumed it was a main spring so thank you for enlightening me.
    My next question is could anyone recommend a place to have the gun re topped up with air,preferably in the north west of England. The job sounds simple but is way beyond my capabilities. demolition is more my game , i can take things apart but to put them back together correctly is another thing totally lol.
    cheers Steve

    Simple job and would recommend buying a slim jim pump ... although you won't use it very often, it's always there if you need it and they don't depreciate very much, plus is a good bargaining point if you ever decide to move the Fenman on :up:

    If you were local to me Steve I'd happily sort you out.

    Forumite rammer enthusiasts, anyone near the Wirral who could give Steve a few blasts into his Fenman?

    PS When we're out of this giant s**t storm of course!
