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.

    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.'

  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.

    10.5 is a nice figure. For purely target work anything from 9.5-10.5 ish is good. For field work, I’d be looking at 10.5-11

    I “stumbled” across 10.5, liked it so much I left it be rather than chasing 11.5+

    Pellet choice can make a big difference to how a rifle shoots.

    I tune .177 springers to 10.5 or thereabouts with a 7.87g pellet.
    Cocking is easy, shot cycle is smooth, recoil is light.
    10.5 in .177 is lovely for hunting.

    As above. Anything over 10.5lbs and from there it is a question of how the gun feels.

    'It shoots a lot better at about 11.5 '

    How do you mean Danny ?

    Feels nicer ? sounds better ? takes less wind ? shoots tighter groups ? less temp variation ? Tighter chrono numbers ?

    All or none of the above ?

    Tx 200 HC can be an enigma regarding how best it shoots. Some will vouch for keeping the steel top hats, others prefer to replace with delrin. The short stroke debate and 22mm conversion all add to the mystery. One of my guns in 177, fitted with uncut No.10 spring, delrin top hat and guides, shoots sweetly at 11.3. Another in 22 with original AA spring finished at 210 mm again shoots well at 11. What I seek is an action that makes full use of spring, not cramped by power washers or large top hat, which will remain consistent over time. Setting power too close to limit, has on many occasions, resulted in having to strip down, cut coil and recommence the bedding in process necessary for consistency.

    Mine sits at 10.9 and I have no desire to change anything as it's spot on for what I do with it, which is targets and paper, but I would not change it up for hunting either for the sake of 20fps :rolleyes:

    To be honest iv not put that many pellets through it due to it been in my garden and it's quite loud but it's a lot less twangy and recoil is a lot less as soon as I can get out with it il get a few through it and see what it's like on the chrono.
