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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    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.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

Todays Tinkering - Hw97!!!!!!!

    Gentlemen....

    Todays tinkering ia a little belated as this was done 2 days ago... never the less... it was done.

    Being the tight Yorkshireman that I am!!!!! rather than purchasing a special adapter from any number of outlets (some of which are PLASTERED with their logo and website!!!)..

    I simply modified what we had...

    A careful removal of the 97's end cap (via a 7mm allen key which was ground down from an 8mm allen key) the diameters and threads were noted.

    Then from a bit of "gash delrin" I whacked it in the lathe and made a holder for the end cap that located over the external thread (M21.75 x 1mm) and the outer diameter (22.01mm) whilst everything was running concentric.

    The end cap was then pushed into the "holder" and 3 small grub screws held everything in place.

    We then drilled, bored and internal screwcut the 1/2" thread.

    Next from a bit of gash brass, we screwcut a thread and a locating shoulder for the 97's internal spring.

    It was all put together and couple of drops of loctite was applied to the male female thread of the end cap (which now had a male thread).

    The whole thing was then plopped into the end of the mod unit and a "special locking ring" was made to nip up the end cap.

    ET VOILA....

    Another bit of tinkering with some gash delrin and a knurled thread protector was made... and all ready to stick on a moderator of your choice....

    All in a days tinkering Gentlemen.

    You next challenge Hal, is to make a moderator that screws direct to the 97 with the cap removed forming a long extension of the existing moderator ;)
