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.

    Pretty straight forward question really....If you wanted to tune your springer, would you have a go yourself, take it to an RFD or trust someone from the forum to do it?

    I'm asking because as an extra string to our HFT cushion/cylinder cover business, we are considering offering a service as above.

    I would be wary about taking it to just any RFD as most just don't have a clue when it comes to air rifles despite what they might say!
    Couple of localish people I know of but still not 100% certain to be fair :)
    If it was a route I wanted to go I would probably just buy the rifle from somewhere with the work already included in the price although my first choice of springers would be AAs ones so they wouldn't need it straight away :rolleyes:

    Many gun shops don't have a resident gunsmith.

    Many contract work out or have a 'tinkerer" do air rifles.

    Many don't even have a chrono or the facilities to safely test guns using one :rolleyes:

    I'd do my own for the most part, but only because I spent a long time learning how to do a pretty decent job of it.

    If I wanted top end I'd send my rifle to wonky donkey or bigtoe. That would result in the gun being tuned to the max the way you want it.

    If I wanted the reassurance of a great job by someone who does it for a living it would probably be Welsh Willy, or V-Mach.

    Most people talk about tuning a gun when they should really be discussing a decent service. Tuning, in my opinion, involves a heck of a lot more than fitting someone else's pre-prepared kit.

    I must add though mate that everyone has to start somewhere and good work results in good feedback which results in being a household name, I'd be happy to let someone who's starting out have a go... But not on my pride an joy straight off. I admire you for branching out!

    Wonky Donky for me, the HW80k he has just done for me is outstanding.

    I would attempt/do it myself and if I mess it up,ask the forum for advice,it's worked in the past and had lots of help from several members. :D

    Welsh Willy or Lyn Lewington (Venoman). Lyn worked on my springer for the chap I bought it from and it shoots as smooth as silk and around 11.5ftlb, he has the gun tuning column in Airgun shooter and is a V-Mach agent....:up:

    If my TX200 explodes in a shower of springs, Lyn Lewington will be my first port of call. He helped found the club what I go to as well.

    It hasn't happened yet though... :rolleyes:
