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.

    Have just got a second hand Raider, have changed all the seals, but when I go to test the gun the power is really low, you can see the pellets thought the scope just arcing.
    Have checked all the seals for leaks and the gun is holding the air in the chamber, I at a loss, have checked all the top end seals and they look fine, has anybody any ideas please ??

    Have you checked the probe seals? Make sure the air is all going towards the pellet/muzzle end and not back out towards the stock?

    First thing to do is put it over a chrony just to be sure.
    It may well be fine as the first time I shot a PCP I was surprised that I could see the pellet fly through the air. Down to the lack of recoil.
    Raiders are extremely easy to work on and very little goes wrong, particularly if it is a older British made one.

    As stated above you need to put it over a chrono, also normal to be able to watch the pellet through its trajectory

    Chrono is showing at 1.5 to 1.9 and the pellets are not going anywhere near as far as should.

    As above, I have a "Venom Viper" (posh 2 shot Raider) and regularly watch the pellets flight path on the way to its target but it needs to be run over a chrono just to make sure !...

    The breach seals regularly wear out if they're not kept lubed by the way !...

    Just read your post, they can be adjusted but you'll need to do a search online because (a) we can't discuss it on here and (b) I've never had to touch mine so am not 100% sure what's involved !...

    Mines running 11.3 with accupells !...

    Did your resealing operation involve removing the barrel from the breech block? Was the muzzle energy alright before the gun came to bits?

    Hi Cloverleaf,

    Did take the barrel from the block and replaced the two O rings on the barrel, the muzzle energy was ok prior to the strip down.

    Cool - in that case you might want to whip off the breech block / barrel assy and inspect the transfer port alignment between the two parts from beneath. It's common for the breech and barrel to be reassembled mis-aligned; effectively reducing the flow area of the port and dropping muzzle energy - sometimes massively.

    As an aside, in the absence of any other "proper" provision for muzzle energy adjustment on these guns, this issue can be expolited to reduce excessive muzzle energy.

    HTH ;)
