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.

    Browning A-Bolt in .270

    Don't want something that weighs as much as the gun hanging off the business end :rolleyes:

    Tried a Hardy Gen IV on the rifle which was impressively lightweight compared to many others.

    I would rather keep the weight down but not at the expense of the moderator's ability to, well, moderate :rolleyes:

    The rifle has had an over-barrel mod on at some point with some very minor witness marks as a result.

    This is a working gun so vanity doesn't come into it; I will only entertain an over-barrel mod if there is a good enough reason to.

    Suggestions very much appreciated by 'them what naaaa' ;)

    Thanks for looking :)

    I know it's not what you are asking for, but I get to see lots of mods when doing my Beginners Days On Red Deer. The T8 Refex Moderator nothing touches it and I own two, the draw back is they are a little on the heavy side. With this in mind there are plenty of the modular mods out there and you will sacrifice noise reduction over weight.

    My mate who works for Scottish Heritage as a professional deer culler, speaks very highly of the DM80 on his 270.

    I'm still in two minds on this.

    A mod is only going to reduce the .270 to about the same level as an unmoderated high velocity .22, or thereabouts.

    I like the handling of the gun as it is and its recoil doesn't pose a problem - anyone who has shot 12 bore 3" magnum or slugs will have felt much worse.

    Basically, I can live with it as it is and just shoot with ear protection - the only reason I am looking at a mod to begin with is from the perspective of ear protection.

    So, I can just as easily use the gun as is and bung some plugs in when stalking, or...

    Aetec MAXIM on an R93 .270 with two additional baffles (£25 each)
    Neat, light and proofed out to 300 Win Mag.
    Also apply a neo. Bushmuffler to take out the "ring" .

    Had it for almost three years and totally happy with it !
