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.

    I have recently acquired a ks carbine with a Webley pro system moderator fitted. The problem is the moderator is causing the gun to shoot like a shot gun. I’m guessing the pellets are clipping.
    If I remove the moderator the barrel is to short for me to cock as I’ve had a total shoulder replacement.
    My questions are.
    Is there a longer replacement moderator that will fit or has anyone made a longer barrel shroud.
    I’m reasonably work shop savvy so anyone got any photos of things they have made anything I could copy?

    It may just need some playing about with to centre it properly. If it's marked Webley & Scott and in good nick with the right collars it should be fine quality and fit wise.
    If you fit it centrally and it's tightened up sufficiently it shouldn't move even if using it as a cocking aid so to speak.

    I’m going to make a barrel shroud and add a couple of inches to the length to help my shoulder. I’m not overly worried about sound moderation as most of the noise is probably the spring twanging around.
    I’ve ordered a carbon fibre tube, 18mm OD and 16mm ID, and an end plug. It should be here for the weekend so it will give me something to do during the weekend storms.

    Keep us updated, I've got a MK1 Vulcan so I'll be interested to see the outcome.

    My Vulcan MK2 had this happen, removed the silencer cleaned it and the barrel outer. Refit but turned 180 degrees and tightened fully. Never happened again.
    You could drill out a bit bigger hole if it keeps happening to stop it. My gun was hopeless without it as it's weight stopped it leaping about when fired.

    This might be a stupid question but does it group better without the mod?

    The reason I'm asking is my Vulcan would not group consistently & it turned out to be the barrel latch & spring wear. I replaced mine with new & it solved the problem.

    I've had a few pro-system mods & they always been good.

    MK3 is 16mm by the way, previous MK's had a stepped down barrel (for front sight) & MK1 has thinner barrel.

    I bit the bullet & had a V-Mach fitted, bonded to barrel. Expensive but worth it.

    My barrel is 15.75mm o/d and the carbon tube is 16mm I/d. I used masking tape (1 piece not overlapping) at the breach and crown to pack the difference and used blue loctite.
    I have the shroud at 13” at the moment and a plastic bung in the end from the garden centre.
    It was a basic test and it works lovely. I can cock it with ease and it groups reasonably well at 30 yards.
    The only issue is it could do with some extra weight up front to reduce flip and improve the look.
    Is there anyone on here who could machine up a barrel weight/end plug?
