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.

    Hi all, I had a post on here last weekend, where I was getting very erratic pellet groupings, and after investigation it was the Weihrauch moderator causing the trouble. Somewhere along the line the pellets were just clipping it.

    Now, I unscrewed the end cap with a 7mm allen key and removed the hair curler part and the felt padding from the bore. The only other thing I see is a clear plastic disc about 3/4 of the way down with a centre hole in it. I think possibly this was the problem area.

    Can I slightly drill this hole out? Maybe 1mm larger?

    The gun (BSA Ultra SE .22) is back to it's very accurate self, but it's loud !!

    Advice welcome thanks.

    David

    First thing I would do is remove all internals then replace them, this could be enough to centralize everything again. If no joy then drill both the washers out.

    Hopfully the mod is screwing up sqaure to the barrel and it's not the end cap that's clipping the pellets:)

    Sounds like, mine are metal too, I remember because I had a pellet hit a washer and bend it, I used a hammer to flatten it back out and it's fine again!

    Take everything out first, there should be three curlers with felt and two steel washers.

    Yes its all back together and shooting well again!! They were indeed steel washers, looking down the tube at first they looked like clear plastic.....

    All I need now is something to shoot. My perm is a good sized farm with 12 fields, building galore etc etc and it's as quiet as the grave at the moment!!
