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.

Good news Tinbum tune up... Drop in kit for TX200HC

    Just fitted a Tinbum drop in kit to my TX200HC, absolutely brilliant. So simple to fit, out with the OE spring guide washers and top hat, in with the Tinbum replacements..... Simples.


    TX was putting out 11.4lb with one power washer, now putting out the same 11.4lb with just the slip washer and no power rings. The main upside for me is that the TX is a lot quieter and has all but lost it's recoil kick which was an issue for me previously.

    I had intended to fit a piston sleeve at the same time and bought a sheet if 1mm PTFE, but this is too thick, so have ordered some 0.25mm and will fit next week to reduce twang further.

    Overall the Tinbum kit is top draw, can't fault it, and all in for £19.99 is a bargain. I'm a very happy customer.

    if you have a TX, go for it.

    cheers Tinbum :D

    Excellent news matey, I got one for my 95k this week but I haven't had time to fit it yet as I've been busy securing a new job which includes 100 acres of prime golf course to shoot over and a £20k annual pay cheque !!!

    As soon as I get a chance though it's getting done !!!...

    Nice one Tornado, if you are thinking of putting a piston sleeve in there at the same time I'd be happy to send you a spare piece of PTFE sheet once I've sliced off what I need. I've bought an A4 sheet of both 1mm and have 0.25mm on way, but only need 7cm x 12cm so plenty going spare.

    Drop me a PM and I'll pop it in the post next week.

    Thanks very much for the more than generous offer "Padster" but she's a fairly new one which already has the piston sleeve!

    Cheers again buddy...

    I fitted my kit around a month ago in my HC, popped a post up in the TbT Drop In thread saying what a difference it has made.

    Made a complete arse of it the first time round, my fault entirely. Left the damn steel top hat in there, couldn't understand why it wouldn't fit! :facepalm:

    Second time it went in no problem at all, popped in the 13mm short stroke and a washer (shaved down a touch) and has bedded in to a very pleasant "thunk" and 11.3-11.4. Nothing after that, just a "thunk". It's awesome!

    Got one coming for my HW45 that I don't even get 'til August!

    Ferret, how are you finding the short stroke? What difference does it make.... Does it just shorten the shooting cycle?

    Aye, shortens it rather nicely.

    The TX is built for export levels regarding power and fitting the piston extension reduces the travel the spring has to go through. Mine was a touch lazy before fitting this, but now it seems the way it should have been from the start.

    Well just finished installing the Tbt tuning kit, went in no problem now gotta chrono it and see what's what...

    Ive left the two power adjusters out for the moment as I'm sort of expecting it to be around the same power as before (10.67) although I will say cocking is a lot easier if a little rough for the moment so may be a little under powered if anything (I expect this will calm down once it's all bedded in, 2-300 shots should do it) and then I'll chrono it and go from there.

    I'll keep you all informed as to the outcome.

    To be continued !!!
