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.

    Same as any other .20 rifle - better than .177 and better than .22 :D Personally I can't abide the electric triggers. A friend has a Wolf in .20 and it is very accurate, but it is an electric rifle and it goes wrong. The battery dies out in the field (because he forgets to charge it) the motherboard went down at 5 years - that wasn't cheap, it cost as much as one of my Theoben rifles!

    You'll potentially enjoy the drawbacks associated with any Daystate rifle (excessive purchase price, poor shroud alignment, non-fitting single-shot trays, accuracy issues when using the mag, poor QC, low muzzle energy, high official servicing / repair costs) plus all the fun of the electronics variants (questionable reliability, extortionate repair costs).

    The cherry on the cake being the limited selection of expensive, hard to source ammunition in a calibre that's arguably inferior in most ways to .177, and that potentially kicks an already-significantly-depreciated resale value in the knackers that little bit harder..

    Not where I'd choose to put my money tbh... ;)

    I do understand your point on the electric daystates ive heard all sorts of problems on all the range with the mags, shrouds, single shot trays etc etc but I had a mk4 and it was superb and shot great.

    Regarding .20 I love the cal, I have two rapids in said cal. The pellets are not hard to come by at all, I ordered ten tins of JSB exacts from intershoot and came within a few days. Plenty of other pellets to choose from, h&n, bisley etc also if any rapid barrels, mags, probes etc come up for sale in .20 they sell fast and for top dollar.

    Daystate do .20 and now you can get hw100 in .20 so things can't be that bad with more rifles coming in .20. For me it's the best cal for hunting and so pleased with it, this is my opinion and this is what makes this place great because everybody has different ideas and opinions on things :D

    Hi,

    I have a MK3 and as been said I did have clipping issues and batteries dying on me at an inconvenient time, replacement batteries aren't cheap either.
    Saying that I do love it and it is now having sorted a few issues extremely accurate.
    Would I buy another daystate, absolutely not.
    Why, the customer service isn't there anymore and I can only see it getting worse, servicing and replacements are extortionate and I don,t think the current models are built as well as previous models.
    My advice don't go there buy something else.

    Regards

    June

    Thanks for the comments guys pretty much as I expected, may just stick with my .177 air ranger for now. Not that I'd ever sell it as it's awesome just fancy something new and shiny!!!!!

    I have been extolling the virtues of RAW since early last year - the TH is a cracking rifle too. Same metal, different wood.
