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.

    Just brought myself my first pcp rifle... A mk II S200 in .177 caliber...

    First of all, is there a certain pellet they like or is it trial and error...

    What other things do I need to know about it before I go damaging it or damaging myself? As it's my first pcp!

    What bar should I refill on/when does the power drop? And how much shall I fill it?

    Also on the probe there looks like their should be an O ring.... Should there be?? (Picture attached)

    Cheers peeps! I literally can't wait to get out with it!!!! View attachment 95157

    Hi Mate,

    Great gun, and so easy to work on!

    1. Yes you are missing a little o-ring pal, look on ebay - plenty there.
    2. You can adjust trigger on them - some sort of fine tune, I will PM you the link later to instructions on this - doing the adjustment makes a big difference!!
    3. I bought few months back s200 as a project and at the end I could not believe myself how good it came out - I ended up with great lightweight riffle as accurate as my other riffles (2 or even 3 times more expensive)
    4. There is gauge with quick fill available from XTX air - it is a very nice feature, I have fitted this to my s200
    5. they are 200bar rated but mine was starting to feel very comfortable at 190bar

    I would like to recommend you that you will find someone who can fully service/clean the rifle for you - if someone was using it without probe o ring it is a sign that it did not received any care from previou owner.

    Cheers

    Thanks Lewy, The trigger feels like it has been adjusted and its very nice to use compared to the mod 60 i have been using...

    It is an EX/Club gun so its been serviced etc, just not sure why the o ring is missing from the probe, otherwise it holds air and fires perfectly... The stock is off at the moment as its getting sanded down and re-stained... Although i need to get a tool to remove the rear stock.

    And it firing around 10ft lb atm, maybe the last 2ft lb is missing from the O ring...

    Hi Mate,

    Considering that they are very easy to work on I would clean it and oil it properly anyway.
    Trigger for start is not that bad on s200 but few tweaks makes it crisp and very very predictable (maybe someone done it already - easy to check really, if the end of the grub screws are rounded then it is a good sign that someone done all the work already)
    Lack of the o ring will affect the power for sure and also it will have impact on consistency. Regarding the matter of pellets: try few but overall mine was not fussy at all.

    Cheers

    Ive got some cheap marksmen pellets just to get used to holding the gun etc so far... I noticed when i take a shot the bolt jumps back a bit.... I took a video and i'll try and upload it to this thread.... im not sure why its doing it... maybe the lack of the O ring is failing to hold the probe in the barrel fully?
