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.

    '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.

    I've no idea how many I've owned I've in last 50 years. I've still got my first one, a semi voere, currently got a Brno mod 2, Greener target, Walther G22, BSA 12/15 & Buckmark LBP. Favourite from old days was Browning auto take down, recently sold of a Marlin mountie. Most used now for target shooting.

    Anschutz action is definitely a more refined unit by quite a margin, and the rifle is easier on the eye, but you are putting considerably more cash over the counter.
    I have never known anyone have any accuracy issues with the CZ's once it's been given the £12 trigger fix, or a few more quid if you go the RifleBasix route like i did on my LR & HMR.
    At one time they were looked upon as "A farmers gun" they even had a model with this name (CZ513 below) with an even worse trigger - but they have come a long way since, and i wouldn't change mine personally, even if i had the spare funds.

    Thanks for that. Been new to rimmy's I've noticed not much scope rail adjustment do you ever have to fit setback mounts and use scopes with a long eye relief.

    I was given the Mountie I have by a club member that just wanted it off his ticket.
    Not a bad rifle really, solid for an American rifle, don't think there's anything I can do to the trigger though which is the only thing that let's it down.

    Just one, owned for one year. Browning T Bolt, yes I've shelled out for a Jard trigger and the butt extender looks a bit ugly but I wouldn't swap it for anything (not even an Anschutz) and will take it to the grave.

    Wow, that's a lot of really nice rifles mentioned. I'm sure they've given us all a lot of enjoyment over the years. All very interesting.
    Thanks for the contributions.:thumb:

    If pistols aren't against the rules (no pun intended) I was lucky enough to own both these when it wasn't considered to be inappropriate by the powers that be :facepalm:

    A lot of cartridges have come and gone since the .22LR was designed in 1884, but it looks like the LR will be with us forever, and there are some very good reasons for this.

    I have, and have had, more .22s than I can count.
    Currently the oldest is an Enfield No2 originally made in 1916, a Marlin from the late '20s, several from the 40s and early 50s (notably; a lovely FN Mauser 98, a No7 and No9). I also have an FN FAL, which is great fun to shoot but a bit heavy, and several of the new combat rifle 22 equivalents.

    Only ever owned two .22 pistols; a SIG Mosquito and a Vostok target pistol. Both were great and did their respective jobs well, but now are gone.

    Best value for money is the CBC MagTech 22 bolt action (8122?). Very accurate and with a 3-9 scope and moderator will set you back less than £200 new.
