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.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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.

    Hi all.
    Havent had my TX out in over and year and would like to get back into using it. have been reading into a 22mm conversion. Ideally after a drop in to save the hassle of postage etc but who would be the best to go with?
    Mainly use the gun for back yard linking and maybe the odd bit of pigeons and rats.

    Cheers

    If you feel as if you didn’t want to take a blow torch to your piston and fancied a simpler drop in kit type tune I can highly recommend a vortek kit, I have a 22mm TL kit in my tx200hc and it is fantastic, I have a vortek pg2 kit in my tx200fl.177 and it’s as good but a fraction of the cost and you don’t have to blow torch your piston

    It's all pretty new to me. Was speaking with Tony and might end up sending the bits to him so I dont fully b****r my gun (costly I know but safer option)
    The gun seems really loud and quite jumpy when fired and saw shoting at Dawn's video which has pointed me min this direction
    Was toying with the idea of trading it in towards a pcp but I dont think I can part with it.

    That's what I did although Tony did me his 21mm conversion rather then 22mm. It's now a dream to shoot.

    Ive shot a few 22mm conversions but much prefer a setup for the standard 25mm that wonky donkey did. Try one of these conversions first if you get chance

    osc88,

    I sent Mr. Leach all the required bits for the 22mm conversion, and he sent back the power-plant as a unit, which dropped straight in. :)

    Best thing I ever did for my TX200 :)

    For the standard 25mm setup, the best performing innards is my Wonky Donky extra short-stroke (71mm) - superb :)

    For me, the 25mm Wonky Donky innards shoot far, far better than the TXs original 25mm Venom Lazaglide innards :)

    Have fun & a good Sunday :)

    Best regards

    Russ

    So will be sending my action minus trigger block this week hopefully.
    Thanks for all your help

    Think after this is shooting nicely I'm going to have a go at tinkering with a kral PB I picked up kinda cheap and learn a bit more while trying to get it too shoot well.

    Cheers all

    You'll all be back to 25mm when you all experience inconsistency issues with temp changes :facepalm:

    plinkers that I know with 21 or 22mm seem happy. Competition shooters I know are going back to 25mm.
    There exceptions to both though.

    O
    I've reverted plenty back to 25mm, excessive hold sensitivity is the usual reason given though?

    I don't experience excessive temp sensitivity, I am on x rings for seal, and the whole point of doing what I do is to reduce hold sensitivity , I shoot FT with mine.
