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.

Victory CP2 mags, how to use?

    Hi, finally got around to fitting the scope and setting up the CP2 today and had a plink in the garden, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to use the mags? I have been using the single pellet plate / loader which works fine, but cannot get the mags to work.

    The manual is less than useless on giving advice on how to use the mags. I must be having a senior moment or something? The mags are spring loaded, but also have what appears to be a blanking plate over the 1st hole. I have attached photos...

    You fill the mag with pellets and put it in the gun, but the bolt then hits the blanking plate, the top plastic cover can be swivelled, which activates the spring, but not when inserted into the gun. I am at a loss as to how to use these bloody things?

    Do I need to snap off this blanking plate? (unlikely) I assume these mags are used in other guns, so I'm hoping someone will point out the bleeding obvious to me, must be summit easy I'm just not seeing it....

    If I can't get info here I may email SMK.....

    Ahh, there's a knack to those:
    First turn the clear cover anti-clockwise against the spring pressure until it stops (about the 8 o'clock position)
    Whilst holding the cover flip it over and load the first pellet SKIRT first
    Let go of the clear plastic cover and you should find the first pellet is held in by the spring pressure
    Flip it over amd load as usual moving the clear cover to each positon so you can load a pellet HEAD first

    Simple!!! Or not, drove me bl**dy mad when I first got mine... I just use the single shot tray now

    Bloody hell, sounds a right old faff, but thanx for the info, ta.
    It would help if they included that info in the user manual...
    .....or I'll stick with the single shot tray.... I'll give it a try next time I have a plink.... :cool:
    Once again thanx....

    Wasn't the best day to try out the gun today, as it was bloody cold here, about 5 degrees C I think, and windy too.
    It was a bit erratic for the first few shots, then settled down, but was only testing to 10m to zero the scope. put about 100 pellets through it, just to run it in..... Will do a proper test when it warms up a bit....

    Confused the life out of me first time I tried to load one :confused:

    Also be wary of using pellets with thin skirts, the spring tension tended to deform pellets in the first slot, bit of a bonkers design TBH

    Thanx all for the info, single shot tray loader works great tho.....! :cool:

    I really like the little magnet on the mags/loader, what a simple and great idea. Reminds me of a mate I used to ride motorbikes with, he was trying to fit a magnetic tank bag to his new bike, but it would not stick, finally in exasperation, he said "I think the magnets have run out!", we then realised his new bike had a plastic fuel tank.... :cool:
