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.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:


    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.

Total, Instant Co2 Losses From Two Seldom-used Pistols...

    I enjoy airgunning but have a couple CO2 pistols I haven't used in a few years. I just gave them a try and both of them blasted out all their CO2 in a few seconds. The air came out of the trigger areas. Rats.

    Gamo R-77 revolver -- CO2 in handle
    Crosman SSP-250 -- CO2 in under-barrel tube

    I tried putting a few layers of teflon tape over a cartridge in the revolver -- no improvement

    I see screwdriver notches down in the tube of the Crosman but I don't have a screwdriver wide enough to bridge the gap across the needle. I've read that I should turn it 1/4 turn -- but I have read different directions of turning in 2 articles. The article that seems totally expert said clockwise -- tighten.

    Any bright ideas? These wd be vintage pistols at this point. Any way to juryrig new seals if that's what I need? Or is there a place where I can get seals?

    I'm in the USA. ... I'm thinking Timmy at Mac1 might be the guy. He did a great repair and superpower mod on my old Sheridan.

    If you haven`t used them for a while the seals will have dried out and shrunk a little. Just put a few drops of pellgun oil or similar in the gas tube then gas up again only this time even though gas is escaping just keep cocking and firing ( without pellets) as fast as you can. The leak will stop after a while... or should do. If not then its a full strip and reseal.

    Thanks. I have some Mac1 'special sauce' that I believe is intended for seals. ...An airgun oil. I've put a few drops onto the seal area of both pistols. I'm letting them sit awhile. Fingers crossed! Is it reasonable that it might take oil awhile to revive the seals? Any notion how long? I'm willing to be patient to give them a better chance...

    Just put a few drops in and load a capsule straight away. If it doesn't work first time the put some more in and try again

    ssp is easy to fix and just needs the flying saucer seal replacing if it's leaking from the tube
    you smetimes can just take the retainer off and flip the seal
