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.

  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.

A Couple Of Modifications To The Bantam Sniper Hr...

    I went to Airfective to have a carbon shroud done for my new Bantam Sniper HR. It looks and sounds great! I am so pleased. Very friendly, knowledgable and helpful people. I think I will be going back to have a full tune with them soon!

    I also wanted to do something about the cheap plastic comb raiser they fitted to the laminate stock from factory.

    So, I took a small block of Oak that I had in the shed, and carved and sanded it down to make a new comb.

    I stained it black with Indian Ink, then oiled it.

    I also took the second crappy bit of plastic off which sites between the comb and the back of the action and machined a carbon fibre insert to put in it’s place. Quite happy with the results.

    What do you guys think?

    It is getting better every time I take it out. I think that is partly due to everything “bedding in” on the rifle (including the Regulator), and me learning to shoot it better. Overall, I am very pleased.

    There seems to be a lot of bad press about around the Brocock Bantam?!

    Got me a bit worried that I’ve bought some kind of lemon?!

    Mine seems ok.....

    Some have had bad experiences with Brocock over the years i think ( a bit like every other make of airgun ) :facepalm:

    Mine is light, compact and accurate so far ( what's not to like ? )

    It's like anything mate you always get negative input about every brand of just about anything you buy ( especially if you step outside the bubble and buy something different from the sheep :loser:)

    People like to have their purchases endorsed by others that do the same, but sometimes not following the crowd can bring its own independent benefits :thumb:

    The carbon shroud is more silent than the original one? It sure looks cool, actually the whole gun is!

    The factory shroud did absolutely nothing to reduce the “crack”!

    This shroud is as quiet (if not slightly quieter) as the factory shroud with a Swift Stumpy fitted on the end. This is a lot lighter as well.
