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.

Victory Shock Pellets - Is This Normal?

    Hi everyone,

    I bought some Victory Shock Pellets along with some others to try out on my rifles/pistols.

    The Victory Shock Pellets were covered in an oil as seen in the picture.

    IMG_20210806_200421138_HDR.jpg

    No other pellets I have bought have had this.

    I am assuming they are just dirty and need washing, but wanted to make sure that this wasn't just some pellet oil of sorts to help the pellets.

    Has anyone had this experience with this (or any other) pellets?

    Thanks all .

    J.

    Possibly a fault in manufacturing. . Contact the distributors . Possibly SMK.

    Have found the same in .25
    Heavy but strangely accurate to 30m
    Fac liked them
    Have also seen it on the smk .177 flatheads

    guess it’s how they are …
    I don’t regularly use either … if I did it would be washed off

    I have two tins of SMK pellets, bought as part of a joblot off this forum IIRC. One tin is dome-head, other is pointy-head, both are oily in the tins :shrug:

    I've tried them in my rapids, they definitely don't like them. They weren't oily though.

    I used them as they are in my CP2 and my PR900W. Both liked them as they are.
    Funnily enough, the magazine's don't cycle well at all on most pellets I have tried, especially match pellets for some reason, but these cycle without fault in all 3 magazines I have.

    I don't know at this point if it's the shape or the oil making then cycle well.
    Will need to wash some and see if they still cycle as well as they have been.
    First time trying them today.

    Bought 3 tins of these in total and all 3 are like the picture above.

    Sounds like it may be a regular occurrence.

    I am only shooting as far as 23 metres maximum, from what I saw today, they are pretty accurate in the two ridges I have tried them in.
    Kids will only shoot from about 6 metres at the moment, these will more than likely be used for them.

    Could be that they are SMK pellets being used in SMK rifles maybe?

    I got a sample and I did not notice any extra oil. They actually worked well in my R10

    It's not the mags that's the problem, it's the barrel. De-burr the breach end and you'll find that it'll accept almost any pellet from the mags, even long H&N Hornets with ease.

    Very common problem with the CP2 and Pr900w barrels.

    As for these oily pellets, I'd not be putting that Censored in my barrel lol....

    New to this and have not ever messed with any of my guns.

    Any tutorials on how to de-burr the barrels that you can recommend?

    Need to remove the barrel and use a fine grit paper to remove the burrs inside the rear entrance of barrel mate (where the pellet enters). You may need new o-rings and a bit of silicone grease for them when re-fitting barrel tho.

    I've seen that thread about tuning the mags btw, all I can tell you is this:

    After de-burring the barrels, I've had zero issues with 6x different mags for CP2/PR900w - shooting literally TENS of thousands of pellets through them without having to fiddle with Mags at all.
