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.

    Thank you.

  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.

    Thought I would post this up for Neville (hope you do not mind mate) he has a 99s that grouped very poorly and was very harsh and noisy to shoot in .177, so I re-tuned it for him and this is the result.

    I switched from ftt to aa as they were tailing off as the gun settled.

    I've only just come across this .... that's not been done with my gun ... can't be :p

    Just proves how carp I am at sorting air guns!!!!!!

    Great to meet you by the way and anybody else on here happens to meet this guy, cracking person and soooo helpful it's not true .... I felt really sorry for his Mrs who got removed from the sunny garden on Sunday so we could do a bit of shooting .... hope it didn't intrude into your weekend too much!!!!

    EDIT: Or does it prove it's down to the person pulling the trigger not the tool :)

    Way too much preload.

    Neville had a delrin top hat and guide in there with a custom seal which were fitting nice, but it needed some fine tuning and finishing, mirror polished piston, spring shortened, redressed and polished and a and re lube(one of the problems) a ptfe liner was also fitted as it had a real twang. also set the trigger from hair to normal:rolleyes:

    Kind words, it was my pleasure, gun ready for pickup as I am very happy with it, it is a different gun mate and shoots very very nice at around 10.4fpe, it is quiet and smooth also and VERY accurate.

    As for the person pulling the trigger, I could not possibly comment:D

    I picked up my 99 on Monday evening but haven't had a chance to try it until today .... first thing you notice is how much smoother and nicer it is to shoot!!!!

    I still get the odd grouping that doesn't quite seem to be as good as others ... picture 2 ... but pictures 3 & 4 are all 10 shot groups, the lower target on picture 4 was using AA's and all the others were JSB 4.52's.

    A huge thank you for taking the time and trouble to work on it, I really do appreciate and whilst early doors it seems like it's been transformed ... you must have a secret stash of pixy dust somewhere :D!!!

    EDIT: Just for clarities sake I think I pulled that one shot that's way off in pic 2, the ones out of teh main group in pic 3 were me zeroing a change of scope and the ones to the left in pic 4 were a totally different string of shots before changing scope aiming at another target.

    Hi Neville, thank you mate, a big improvement but having put some more thought into it, I think there maybe an issue with your barrel which was the first thing I picked up on as in the rifling only shows up on the pellet once pushed through three quarters of the way around the head, so not ideal, maybe a closer inspection on choke etc.

    The only way to find out I#m guessing would be with a different barrel ?????????

    Also just say it was that, of the rest of the gun has been taken apart I'm guessing it'd breach and warranty but if the barrel's never been touched / had anything done to it would it theoretically still be covered???
