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.

    '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.'

  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.

Umarex Smith and Wesson 586 revolver issues...

    (this is my first post so be kind...)

    So I bought a used 586 the other day I was told it had been serviced by someone called phil baker.

    Anyway I just couldn't get on with it it kept throwing 'wild ones' out every now and then (even when bench rested) and I was struggling to keep the group size below 4" from 9 yards (the length of my workshop). I was disappointed as I was under the impression that the 586 was one of the better multishot co2 pistols out there. I'm used to my Webley Alecto putting the pellets wherever I ask them to go.

    Any how I stripped the thing down and polished up a few bits that moved against each other and the results were brilliant! groups are now less than an inch so there's still room for improvement but it's way better than the 4 inch groups previously!

    I'll try to add some pics showing where I polished incase it helps anyone else. View attachment 95597 View attachment 95598

    What pellets do others use in their 586?

    Cheers, Davy

    Really, I've never tried them as always used Hobbys. I'll have a go when I've used more of my stash of Hobbys (buy in sleeves of 5000)

    afraid the photos don't work, could you please try again

    Always use Gecos or Mosquito in my Umarex pistols. Started to find Hobbys quality was dropping.

    Right... How's that?? (Sent from my phone, sorry about the double post)

    I'll order some more pellets and report back some results. Also my 9 yards is actually only 8 yards long, got the tape out and marked the floor.

    At that Distance You are looking at hitting a large target of several feet - But they get there
    IPAS is out to 18 Metres hitting foot Square plates

    Not Match but are made for speed Shooting -
