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.

    I need a weaker and or shorter hammer spring for my Evanix Blizzard, any ideas where to get one? Outer diameter is 12.3mm, length 63mm and wire diameter 1.3mm. I'm mostly interested in finding similar diameter springs made of thicker or thinner wire, I can always cut them to appropriate size so length is not that important.

    If you look on ebay uk there are plenty of springs in the business, office and industrial section. You may well be able to find something suitable there, if you look for them in the shooting section they are likely to cost a lot more.

    One of the local tractor suppliers seems to have springs I could use, I need to visit them. I even tried a FAC BSA hammer spring I had lying around, got 500 fps with 67 grain lead balls while the stock spring was pushing them at 960 fps :) It seems that there are not that many online suppliers so it pays to dig and ask around.

    I can get a selection of springs over here, I'll check the diameters for your specs, I also have an old Diana mod 5 spring (it was a bit small) I'm next there wed/thursday. They are usually asking 10-15€ per spring in air rifle main spring lengths.

    Let me know if I can be of help.

    If you tried bsa fac what was It from r10 or s10, mine are mostly around the s10, ive got s10 original fac but I have two springs that put it to shame, ive got about 9 different hammer springs for s10 all different length an strength, I got one 75mm long but 1.5mm wire its a brute, most of my springs are based around webley theoben and bsa s10, and a bunch that are based around valve upgrades

    Thanks John, I'll get one of those springs locally today and test it. If it doesn't work I'll get back to you.

    It was from my Dynamax I believe, 50mm long - 1.5mm wire and 13 coils and 12mm diameter. What I need is something a bit longer and not much more coils as I get coil bind if I turn the adjuster all in. That 75mm spring sounds interesting, is it 12mm in diameter? How many coils and do you have a p/n for it?
