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.

TX200HC Tinbum's Delrin tophat kit fitted

    Although I posted this on my washer removal thread I think it better shown on a thread with a more appropriate title:

    Having received and fitted my Delrin Tophat kit from Tinbum I had put about 20 or so pellets through my TX200HC to settle it down and then posted the next 10 pellet results from my Combro.
    You'll notice that I have refitted the two steel preload washers as the kit is very light and I thought it best to see what the max load would be and then decide whether the washers are removed again. Tinbum is sending some Delrin preload washers but I'll wait a while before swapping them for the steel ones.
    One thing I noticed is that the twang has almost completely vanished and the results so far seem more consistent with only 4fps spread. I'm also quite happy with 11ftlb. :)

    Put one in myself, and I am very happy with the results. This has got to be the best 20 quid you can spend on your springer!

    With how easy the TX200 is to strip and remove the washers i would definatly try it without any preload washers and if its still doing 10.5ftlb and shoots smoother i would be happy.

    Now I'll respond correctly to your well made point. Yes, I think will try it without any steel washers, and as Tinbum is sending Delrin ones I'll try it with those one at a time too. I'll post the results against those above .

    I received my Delrin kit for my 97kt from Tinbum on Wednesday afternoon and fitted it that evening, didn't have time to shoot it until the next day, what a difference it made to the gun, the twang has gone and the recoil has almost gone as well, its now down to just a little nudge at the shoulder, I received my Delrin washers on Thursday afternoon but as of yet I have not fitted them I am going to put a tin of pellets through the gun then chrono it, I have spoken with Nick a couple of times and found him to be a very helpful and genuine guy so thanks Nick.

    It would be nice to see your before and after chrono data.

    I'm glad everyone's so happy with my work. I've always been amazed what a difference they make, but to have it confirmed is great!

    I've attached two photos below. Each shows on the left hand side my targets from one week ago and pre Tinbum 's TBTkit being fitted to my TX200HC and on the right hand side my targets from today with the TBT kit installed.
    Personally I felt that today my rifle was smoother, had less recoil and on the whole was more accurate than before I fitted the delrin parts. Ok the sessions were not exactly the same inasmuch as many more pellets were used to get near the bull last week and the scatter is noticeable. The targets with large circles were set at 35yds and those with small circles at 40 yds. I was particularly pleased with today's 40 yd groupings and although only 8 small circles were fired at with 5 pellets at each I think for me they show some of the best and most consistent groupings I have had in the 7 months since I took up rifle shooting. I realise they probably do not bear comparison with the results forum members achieve with PCP's but I am happy with them and put down the improvement to the TBT kit.
    I hope this is of interest to any springer user considering buying one of Tinbum's kits

    Edit: apologies but photos seem to have appeared upside down, therefore today's targets are on the left in both photos though I don't think their being upside down will detract from them.
