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.

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.

  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.

    Hi,

    Does anyone know of any .25 pcps which are fairly compact or light for ratting as it's purpose?

    Regards
    Tom

    Rapids are not overly large and are available in .25.

    Note I was going to suggest the Ultra SE as well!

    Are these ultras custom made? As I would be after a beech stock, and currently the only .25 I can find is tactical synthetic :thumbdown:

    as far as I know, they are available in beech, walnut and black tactical in multishot, and black tactical only in singleshot. personally, if it's a dedicated field rifle, I would choose the tactical. be quick tho, I have heard that they are discontinuing the ultra singleshot model.

    Yaah, looking on solware, only .25 in synthetic ebony is available. :sly: I wouldn't mind single or multi but would mind synthetic :) I proper dislike most synthetic stocks (especially the bsa t-10's).

    Hmm...

    If you have a ratting permission that is worth the money i would go for a cricket with viper connect. If not i would defiantly go ultra se with a simmons wtc 1.5-5-20

    Yeh I work for a free range poultry farm, which also has pigs and lots of straw and wheat :) I've considered the cricket many times, but it's too expensive for the purpose I need it for.
    I've currently have/am buying.

    .177 hw98 sfs cs700
    .177 Brocock contour (to be sold)
    .20 daystate harrier special edition
    .22 fx2000 carbine

    Yes crickets are more again on top but well worth it to be honest.

    Also bsa scorpion se .25 is another option and off the top of my head not too much more than the ultra but far bigger shot count

    Hi
    I considered that but then we're talking standard rifle sizes and weight!
    If I got a ultra, I'd put on a big mattw silencer so it's silent :)

    In that case, why not buy the tactical. if after using it you still can't get on with the stock, then put the stock up for a swap for a beech one. Or sell that and get one made by Geordie or markyboy on here.

    Yes that was an option, but as you say it's in the field gun so I'm sort of not wanting to spent extra on it as it will soon rise to cricket prices lol.

    Wondering whether a conversion would work out less...
