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.

    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.'

  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.

    Biggest Joke is Silencers

    Because many will work on Power Burners which need to be added to License

    Air Gunners have to buy them Direct - Face to Face @ RFD Dealers -

    Its has to be a proper walther AR20 regulator as its a large brass unit that screws into the gun and the removable air cylnder screws onto the other end.
    The unit includes the firing valve low pressure reg stack and high pressure reg stack.

    Where have you sourced one Armex,Hammerli or walther?

    You could try sourcing one from out of the country. There's a bit more to it than language barriers, for instance a German one will be set to about 6ftlb's, but basically it gets shipped from anywhere in the EEC & arrives at your address regardless of the UK VCR act.

    Copied from an obscure corner of airrifle.co.za forum:

    Please contact Mr Hans Doenselman or Mr Roland Stopper at www.stopper.de

    They are in Germany, and would be able to help you. Tell them I asked you to contact them (Robert Stewart).

    Just ask them to contact the factory and get you a 16 Joule regulator and hammer spring, the part numbers are as follows:

    regulator: 466.61
    spring: 466.201.35.1

    I only have the factory dealer prices, but both should be under Eur 100.
