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.

  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.

    I would say the bigger the better and no matter what size you get, make sure it is 300 bar working pressure

    depends of the dive shop if they can fill to 300 get one but if not its a waste of money.

    generally look at 7ltr 300bar

    or the lower bar 12ltr

    im a real man so use a pump so bottles arent my problem:D

    Pump up an airwolf?!?. PAH!
    Try pumping up 140bar into my T12 with a 490mm (390mm + 100mm tube extension) tube after every 10 shots!!!! thats a mans rifle.

    Allthough not very practical!

    I've borrowed a 10ltr 300bar bottle, (Now empty), but i only gotabout 60, 30ftpound fills out of it un till it was down to 170bar.
    How many fills would you get on avaerage with 200bar fill and 12ft pounds?

    i can't use a pump the reason i'm getting a pcp is because constantly cocking and loading the springers is a problem at the moment whilst i'm recovering from surgery after a couple of shots i'm in to much pain to continue

    Watch out if you go for a second hand one. They have to be sent away and tested every five years. Not usually a problem, but check on how much test is left, or with the dive shops for the cost of certificating it again. I've gone for the 7L tank, big enough for my needs (its only a fiver a fill) its the .22 FAC guns that go through air like no tomorrow!

    Littlescoot and Myself have a 12ltr 300bar, it's absolutely brilliant. Cost £200 but we went halfers on it.

    We get it filled for nothing because we have a deal with our local gunshop; we take all their bottles that are needing done at the same time as ours, they pay for them all, including ours.

    Saves them time, saves us money.
