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.

Todays Tinkering - R10 Barrel Shroud And Moderator..

    Gentlemen.... Guess what I got in todays post!!!!!!! YES....!!!!!!!!

    20200513_165618.jpg

    So now I was able to finish off my R10 project (well this one anyway... full moderated and balanced shroud in in the pipeline... awaiting more carbon!!!!)


    Starting with removing the standard BSA aluminium shroud and moderator to expose the super carbine configuration...
    20200513_165628.jpg

    As the threaded section for the standard shroud is 19.85 diameter (micrometer measured..) it is decided to leave it on the rifle and use it as a breech support for the carbon tube. However, there is a tiny bit of "slop" on the fit.... so... off with the threaded adapter..
    20200513_171458.jpg

    ... and out with the PTFE tape.... approx. 6-7 full turns around the threads and trim off the waste was about right for a lovely snug fit on the inside of the carbon tube (saves making a delrin top hat insert....

    20200513_171937.jpg

    .... and pushed up fully....
    20200513_172007.jpg

    Now comes the moderator.... this is a carbon moderator that I made a little while ago with the express intent to not only locate on the 1/2" unf thread.. but also on the 15.5mm diameter barrel... BUT... also... to locate the outer diameter of the carbon tube... so in effect doing away with a forward delrin tube guide...
    Hence the internal configuration of the moderator mounting... ALSO.. as a "compressive gasket" so that IF there was any minor anomaly in length of the cut tube, the rubber O ring would "take up any slack" when the moderator locked up on the front face of the barrel on its thread....

    20200513_172336.jpg 20200513_172347.jpg 20200513_172404.jpg

    So now it was a simple procedure to fit the tube over the barrel and onto the PTFE taped threads, slip the moderator onto the muzzle and thread it on and allow it to centrally locate the carbon shroud... simples!!!!

    20200513_172427.jpg

    20200513_172449.jpg 20200513_172510.jpg 20200513_172547.jpg 20200513_172636.jpg


    My mod and shroud have shaved 28mm off the overall length of the rifle to which I am very pleased.

    And... its as if note MORE quieter than the standard moderator.... Happy days.

    20200513_172723.jpg

    Next project is to make a fully shrouded moderator... but that's another "Todays Tinkering" feature.

    Stay safe Gentlemen....

    Nice job:up:

    I removed that daft mag retaining clip so no notch in the shroud is needed:)

    No problems at all, in fact it made it a bit smoother. The mag can fall out without it, so I used a couple of 3mm rod magnets which works a treat.

    Yes mate.. I was thinking about the mags falling out... magnets are the easiest option.. well done.

    When I do the full shroud I will make a the breech end of the shroud support about 27mm long as it will allow the mag clip to slide back and forth. Its an easy "fix" to maintain the clip and keep everything where it should be...

    The only reason I removed it is because it was so bloody stiff.

    Must of been made on a Friday afternoon:D

    There’s a slot on the side of the action, the rod magnets fits in perfectly. A tiny bit of hot glue stops them going backwards:)

    Interesting i found that not using the std pin caused indexing problems as well so i ended up with this arrangement on my R10...need to sleeve the lot in carbon to make it look right really.
