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.

Question What pump would you recommend?

    I'm going to buy a BSA Ultra, and I wanted to get a stirrup pump with it. What brand of pump would you recommend for no more than 170 pounds, and even that is really pushing my budget, which I would want to be about 130 pounds. Most of the pumps on the web seem expensive, and I wanted to ask someone who knew about pumps fairly well, as it is going to be my first PCP. Also, can anyone recommend a good but fairly cheap silencer? I am pretty much clueless about both these topics as I have never used either of them.:confused:

    Has to be a Hills pump with a dri pack fitted,not many pumps,if any are as good,it's important not to skimp on quality with a pump as the last thing you want is moisture in your gun,it will ruin the cylinder and be potentially very dangerous.

    For your silencer,you have a couple of options, either one of MattW975s from this forum,a Deben Whisper or a Hogun Decimeator,I prefer the Decimeator but haven't tried one of Matts.

    in a distant galaxy, far far away ....... actually
    if you're minds set on a pump, get the hills.
    personally, i would go for a 3l or 7l bottle from the above link, kindly supplied by gantongunner.
    as for silencer, just bought a hogan decimeater for our ultra - best bar none, closely followed by a custom one from matthw975 (member on here) and a deben whisper

    forgot to say about silencers I have 4 main silencers I will now rate them in a list for you ie no1 being the best of what I have
    1st Hogan decimeater
    joint 1st Hogan decimeater
    3rd hw
    4th AA
    and surprisingly the Hogan if you can get one is about the cheapest


    I have also owned one of matt's which was good and a Deben whisper which was also pretty good
    non of the other silencers ive owned are really worth mentioning which is why I have not :)

    Hills pump with the dry pack added...I found that going directly to hills was cheaper when you buy the dry pack as well. As for silencer I have a Weihrauch as it came with my HW100, very quiet. I have also heard great things about Matt's silencers on here and will be trying one soon.

    That review shows a Hills Mk 2, the later Mk3 is far easier to pump.

    Not if you add on the time it takes to go and get the bottle filled it doesn't! :D (Divided by number of fills of course for fairness)

    Got to be the hills pump best by far, A real quality pump but I wouldn't bother wirh the drypac as moisture is cteated in the pump whilst pumping so pac has little to no effect.
