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.

    @ped good to know mate,
    so do these caps just replace the co 2 cap on the existing tube,
    and can they then be filled off a pump/bottle,

    TIA

    On the XS79 you can simply screw a 13ci bottle on

    You can bulk fill the 78 tube I believe too!

    Heyup Reevo. I would like to carbine the barrel, polish all the internals and modify the pellet probe, possibly re blue all the external steel parts. Play with the stock to customise it and make a fancy moderator. It's just summat to tinker with during the winter months.

    Predominantly it will be used in the garden for a bit of plinking.

    I am looking for the .22 as carbining the barrel is better and I have big daft fingers that struggle to put in .177 pellets....

    May consider a small bulk fill bottle too..

    for co2 pressure only with the brass cap
    without a new tube making and alterations to the valve the 78 isn't suitable to use unregulated air 54257575_2205373129725403_5043181252144791552_n.jpg 56631994_1246013668889102_4932445102489468928_n.jpg

    Thanks for info,
    So what sort of pressure is this set up capable of and what would one use to bulk fill?
    sorry if I sound a bit thick but this is all very new ground for me.
    cheers

    I have 2 Now a bit rusty , One shooting fine the other with the barrel off ( I was going to .25 it )
    If a ball park figure is suggested I will post Pics,
    The air model is poor on performance, Not in output but at 800 Psi it quickly declines, I may still have the tube,

    Cheers Ged.

    I have a QB78DL in .22. Its currently in bits as it was project, currently got a bit behind due to a new baby and a 79 that I'm working on. Might be willing to part depending on what's being offered. Has a new seal kit with it.

    Heyup Jay, yes mate. My RFD doesn't have one but have seen a couple on line but the folk are wanting stupid money for them...

    co2 at 21* is about 850 psi and can rise to 1400-1500 psi if hot enough but 78's start to suffer valve lock around 1200-1300psi
    the bulkfill will withstand this no probs and with a steel nut would go to much higher but as I mentioned the tube isn't rated for that
    to fill most use a fire extinguisher and a fill station
