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.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    I have a Webley Alecto MKI(I believe) that is leaking air from the small hole in the piston with every pump and it is not difficult to close the gun on the third pump. Maximum power is 300fps after 3 pumps (or more).

    I tried tightening the rear power screw but this has not helped. I have heard that air leaking from the small hole in the piston might be cause by dry o-rings.

    Everyone I have spoken to when enquiring about getting it repaired does not want to touch it because they claim there are 5 versions with non-inter-compatible parts and regardless of the version the parts are almost impossible to get hold of as current owners of Webley are not interested in supplying parts, primarily because they don't make their own guns, they just do re branding of other manufacturer's guns, atak arms Zoraki (Turkey) in the case of the Alecto.

    Is there anyone out there capable of repairing this (seemingly) common fault or pointing me to a detailed guide so I can do it myself, not that I have the time or space but with a guide I could at least plan for it when I do?

    Have you tried oiling the piston? The seal is probably dry

    Yes, just read this (attached image). Should have looked before but my guns are not stored where I live. I'll give this a go when I am next with the gun.

    Video or photo every stage of stripping it down, remove and measure all the seals and o-rings then buy new ones. Replace clean lube and rebuild. It don't look to complicated.
    If you want someone else to do it the Logunator on here would be worth messaging.

    Yes, that would be the way to go, but I am space and time limited which is why if it's not a simple (does not require a full strip down) fix I'd rather pay someone (if it's a reasonable cost) who knows what they are doing, to do it. I'll post here how I get on, I'm not in any major hurry.
