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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    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.

    What did you repair, service or install on your gun or accessories today

    I have a bunch of BSA red Mags, and a few were mis cycling and jamming.

    So, today I cleaned them, and replaced their O rings and return springs.
    a couple of hundred rounds later.... No mis-cycles or jams.

    bargain for £15.

    Modified a 97 silencer/barrel catch, new end cap with 1/2unf thread machined to except the barrel so that the silencer can be fitted to a hw77. Now its just a cosmetic thing but i feel it looks loads better now...

    Sleeved a HW95 down to 23mm, working now on the the piston to go in to it...workin with a TX piston now but it may have to be an LGV piston, its all about the latch rod position.

    Only a couple of hours on and off in the shed....been a little lethargic today :)

    Cleaned the barrel of my .22 '97k, then put a few pellets through it. Noticed the POI had dropped slightly afterwards, but a couple of turret clicks and we were back to normal. Then put a couple of dozen pellets through the .177 '97kt just to keep it 'exercised'. End result = both guns doing what they should be doing.

    I feel your pain!
    I tackled one for the first time last year after an owner had stripped it and then given up. It took hours to work it out! :D

    Took the barrel and probe out of my Evanix and adjusted the barrel o-ring to a bit smaller size. What I really should do is to install a thermostat to my bullet melting pot but that waits for inspiration.

    Went to the club and measured a shot string on my rebuilt and modified AA prosport. Tinbum drop in kit and Nickg O ring piston seal. Max power was 11.4Ft/lbs using Crossman 7.9 gn pellets. I have just obtained a tin of H&N sniper magnum 15gn pellets and I checked my daystate MK3 to check it was still legal and was very happy to get a max of 11.7FT/lbs using these monster pellets.

    Received my Scorpion single shot back today from JB,I had the Blueprint tune,bolt mod and different banjo fitting and the big ball fitted to cocking bolt. Put stock back on and fitted a set of BSA scopes back on that came with the gun until my new scopes arrive. Had a look at the test card he done and JSB heavy 4.52 gave best groups so ordered a tin of these and a tin of normal JSB to try in it .
