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.

    Not got a Walther but usually Walther barrels seem to like Air Arms Diabolo Field or JSB Exact Diabolo
    Generally a good starting point

    Give the barrel a clean too
    Then run 20-30 shots through and see if it behaves differently

    Thanks kev,
    tried jsb's and AA + Webley mosquitos and accupels. Just cannot decide what to stick with. Probably my shooting isn't consistent enough.

    Just stick with it
    Most of what you are using should be good
    Just start at fairly short ranges and gradually increase the range.
    If you stretch it too much early on it will be far more difficult and disheartening

    Recently acquired a .177 LGV challenger, took it to the range yesterday and Superdomes, Sovereigns, Kaiser and AA Field all did well, but I think the Sovereigns just edged it over the AA Field.

    Hi there I have a Century 0.22 an LGU 0.22 and a rm8 0,22 and I tend to find that they are one of the least pellet fussy rifles out there, I use AA Diabolo, jsb exact and one called Silco which replaced the Brocock pellets. Hope this helps I find that they are great rifles that if you want are easy to work on by the way is it new or second hand . Enjoy the fantastic rifle you have selected. p.s I have been wanting an LGV for some time but can't find one at the right price. Graham

    Hi Graham,
    my LGV is my only air rifle and I have had it around 5 years. I recently had it tuned by Sandwell Field Sports - they had it for a week and turned it from a very good air rifle to a brilliant one. The Silco/Brocock pellets were the first ones I tried - they were supplied with it. I loved them but haven't seen anyone selling them local to me (East Kent). Good luck looking for a S/H LGV. Keith

    Hi there Keithchief there is an RFD in Sheffield that do mail order and they stock the silco pellets for £7.10p in 0.22 or £6.25 in 0.177, I would love to know what they do to the rifle the only real issue I have had with my LGU were checking the spring which just needed a polish & opening the transfer port slightly, oh and setting the trigger better. All the best Graham

    Hi Graham,
    Thanks for the info regarding Silco pellet supply. Regarding work on the air rifle. I was unhappy with the trigger which along with the overlong first stage had an inconsistent second stage. I had also noticed that the spring free length had reduced by around 10mm from new. At sfs the spring was replaced, the cylinder polished and piston seals made to size. Keith

    Hi Keithchief yes my trigger was similar but with a bit of polishing and fine adjustment it was a lot better, I then went one step further and. Fitted an Air Arms tx200 trigger I lost the safety catch but what a difference, I opened my transfer port a little as it is suspected of causing spring reduction in the LGUs due to the long transfer port. I have also short stroked it now which has made quite an improvement. All the best Graham

    LGV and LGU in 177 and 22 both liked H&N FTT. A few other Walthers of mine also shoot well with them.

    Dont go with a pellet because someone tells you its the best- if its not their gun, then its just poop down the tube. Too many people these days wlil tell you to use pellet X- try as many as you can get your paws on, and see whats best. after that its just down to refining :)

    Hi again yes it's worth getting a pellet test pack, there use to be a guy on here that sold kits made to your asking but I think he stopped doing it a while ago ,. Shame really as very useful it saves you buying lots of tins to try maybe 40 of them.i know that south south yorkshire shooting range sell sets like this.Graham

    Hi I've just looked they sell 0.22 pellet test sets which include 177 pellets and a test card for just under £20 including postage. There is 12 types of pellet so if you bought say twelve tins at about £7 =£84 so yes you don't get as many pellets but you don't need the tins it isn't find of.
