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.

Good news What Man Wouldn't Want A Couple Of Extra Inches ?!?!

    So it has finally arrived ! What a beauty she is too, a couple of extra inches makes all the difference (so the misses keeps telling me). Got a chance to inspect, strip and re-lube her, gave her some shots over the chrono, did some indoor target shooting (she is shooting slightly low at 8m), some very nice 'tight' groups, more vertically displaced than on the horizontal (which I am very happy with), then did a quick photo session.......

    A pair of Colt SAAs 6.jpg
    A pair of Colt SAAs 12.jpg
    Took me a good while to find the matching one for my Colt SAA 5.5" version BUT so very glad I did especially as how I only just found out that Umarex have stopped making the 7.5" version.

    One question though......When I ran it past the chrono I was shocked at the shot count per CO2 cartridge, I got 150 shots before it failed to fire ? Checked over the data and it seems to be consistent for 138 shots albeit at a very low average of around 275 fps per shot, which maybe why she is shooting slightly low, has anybody else found the same for these 7.5" versions or is it just mine ? As I only get around 108 consistent shots per CO2 for my 5.5" Colt SAA at around an average pellet speed of 331 fps. I am not a great fan of the valve system employed in the Umarex Colt SAA or the Remington 1875 (aka the Crosman Cowboy), I do prefer the ASG valve systems that you can get in the likes of their Schofield, Dan Wesson etc..
    It's not a 'deal breaker' as the grouping size and power is more than adequate for my backyard plinking needs, I just noticed and thought that I would ask some of the other forum members who own a 7.5" Colt SAA for their input.
    Anyhow, happy days.....I got me an extra couple of inches, don't know if her indoors will be as happy as she thought she would be ? But I am ! ;)

    I’m a bit confused...

    how do you load/ fire those?

    I thought that air/gas cartridges made to look like dummy bullets were outlawed?

    brocock system ?

    No, it's not a Brocock system, it's a CO2 powered handgun. Pellets go into the cartridges and the gas comes out of a cylinder housed in the pistol grip when you pull the trigger. The Brocock system that you're referring to has cartridges that have a pellet AND propellent in them making them a 'self contained cartridge' which is what makes them illegal.

    Odd how we're all different eh?
    I'd be over the moon if they made the 4 3/4" Sheriff version.
    I find the shorter barrels more aesthetically pleasing.

    Glad you like it though.
    My next step is to get a blued one, as I already have 2 x Nickel ones.

    The pellets go in the base of the cartridge so effectively the cartridge is a rear barrel extension.

    They look like Schofield or Dan Wesson carts to me. My pellet SAA carts are all silver too.
