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.

  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.

    Yes, if you take the gun apart the dealer has every right to refuse to deal with any problems that occur.

    Firstly id run the gun in, if it shoots smoothly it might not need tunning.
    I bought a HW97 action off critter on here to go in my KT stock and i shoots really smoothly fast cylce and very dead in recoil i wouldnt dream of tuning it, even people at the club who say they cant shoot springers hit golf balls at 60yards with it standing.

    Maybe i was lucky but as youve only had the gun a day i give the gun some time first.

    id send it to tony wall. purely on reputation.
    i think when it comes to having it v-mach'd its all about who fits it
    i fired a v-mach'd 97 and it still wasn't as fine as dave1962's standard tx200.
    its more important who fits the parts not what parts are fitted.

    very rare to get a 97 as standard to be anything like a tuned one, but u dont have to put a kit in a gun to tune it a little bit of nohow and elbow grease and u can make them a ole lot smother quieter !

    i agree with this to buy a vmach kit n just drop it in is a waste of a good kit plus chances are it with be over the limit as for a tx they are almost a v-glide kit as standard ! only prob with using tony for this guy i would imagine is 2 lots of post and last i hurd a ten week wait to get a tune !

    Smoothing out internals with fine grade abrasives,adjusting/honing trigger sears,making sure everything is aligned and correctly working,ensuring all the parts are properly lubricated with quality grease/oil will go a long way to improving the performance.

    Mine went in just before xmas, was told 8 weeks wait but I might get it a bit sooner as I only had a stage 1 tune. One of the guys there (not tony) showed me the spring and guide they make, and the records they keep of post tune power testing. I was very impressed can't wait to get it back.

    I think I'd be inclined to put a couple of hundred pellets through it first then get it chrono'd before thinking about what changes to make.

    Almost certainly will,any deviation from how it left the factory will almost certainly invalidate the warranty
