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.

    Evening all,
    I have a silencer, a pretty well made one by the looks of it.
    I have measured the barrels on the air rifles I have, they
    are too big in diameter for the silencer to fit, even the cheapo
    View attachment 92763 View attachment 92764 View attachment 92765
    chinese ARROW .177 I was given, its barrel is too thick for it.
    It is a pushfit and the diameter of the barrel insertion hole is 14mm.
    Overall length is 250mm.
    Anyone any ideas ?
    Thankyou Lee.

    I take it that air arms barrel diameter is 14mm.
    Thankyou Lee.

    I guess they thought you hit the nail on the head and there was no need to post.
    Thanks again Lee.

    yeh sounds like aa, have seen some others with similar design, but 14mm barrel seems a coincidence...

    It really is a solidly built one, compared to the ones i have on my air rifles.
    It came from a friend, who's dad passed away quite a long time ago and it
    belonged to him. He was into his air rifles. Just wondered if anyone could
    tell me how long air arms have been around please.

    Thankyou Lee

    I think its a BBFM Webley silencer, that would fit Trackers, Vulcans, Hawks and Airarms side levers.

    Thankyou for that JD. Just wondering would it be possible to make the barrel insertion hole larger to fit my air rifle or can it not be done.

    With that amount of volume it will be pretty effective!! I'm sure someone with a lathe could in large the hole for your barrel:)

    That's not an Air Arms mod. For the purposes of slip-on mod fitment, barrel diamters are 10mm (300,400 and early 200 series), 14mm (S400MPR) and 15mm (later 200 series). Air Arms have never offered a moderator for the MPR.

    I wouldn't butcher it to fit to another gun - you'll chip all the anodising off and it'll look a mess; plus the bore of the hole will be unfinished (soft) and if you're not careful (if your man doesn't know what he's doing / ream the hole to size) you'll end up with an oversized hole that's no use to man nor beast ;)

    If you decide to sell I may be interested, depending on the provision of a bit more information :)

    I thought the BBMF was a 1/2" UNF screw-on (I've got the 8" version on my Raider). Anyway, I've just unscrewed the can from mine and the end that screws on to the barrel has an approx. 1" bright alloy threaded section that fits into the can.

    Perhaps they also did a slip-on version?
