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.

    Target, hunting, HFT, back garden plinking ...... what ever you want to do. :up:

    Get one .... you won`t be disappointed!! lol

    Where did you read such terrible reviews?

    I've got a Walnut s410 carbine in .177
    Can't fault it. It'll do everything you want it too.
    I use mine for hunting and HFT without any problems.
    Accuracy falling off after 25 yards? I can put pellet on pellet at 40 yards with mine and I'm in no way what can be considered a crack shot.

    hello, ok i have an S410 .22 carbine some 4 years old and shot 1,000s of pellets with no probs, after every shoot it is dryed/cleaned/checked/then wiped with gun oily cloth. i have cleaned barrel once and use pellet lube and keep mags and seals in working order, i also add a touch of oil on the probe/breech seal and the mag system. so far its never let me down but i never say never and will at some point get it serviced but if it aint broke well you know. i chose this rifle as made in uk, well engineered and not fancy. the weight of this rifle according to spec is 2.48kg and the weight of the same but superlite is 2.6kg ???? the superlite has a better stock which i rather like but i dont think there is any mechanical difference unless someone can say. you will always get the odd rifle that might have technical faults but with AAs they are very few and sell in 1,000s over the years tried and tested. to me a rifle is a tool like a bricklayers trowel not a show piece but i do think that superlite carbine stock looks a treat but i do a lot of vermin control and would be aghast if i dinged that :rolleyes: would i get another AA say super duper, yes but would buy a stock sock to:D

    I have an S410F Classic and it's brilliant. Not sure of the reviews you talk about, as I chose mine based on recommendations and the S410 came up time and time again.

    IMO the 400 series represents on of the most well-rounded, value-for-money rifles on the market. As with everything else they're not perfect and you do get the odd "bad" one, but on balance they're very good :)

    In answer to your questions:

    - All PCPs can and do leak eventually. The 400 is no different (or worse) but (anti-tamper not withstanding) they're cheap and straightforward to diagnose and fix.

    - IMO the triggers are one of the best sporting units on the market; and when setup correctly are very capable. The safety in the trigger blade is an abomination on the other hand; but you don't have to keep it ;)

    - Accuracy seems on a par with everything else and I've certainly not had any cause to complain with any on mine.

    ;)

    dont know about the negative reviews mate, but as one of the biggest selling rifles ever made, the law of averages say that there will be a couple of lemons knocking about.
    they are, for the money, the best pcp available. sure there are better ones available, but you would have to pay much more, for just a marginal improvement. accuracy, build and quality are top notch - just look at how many on here own one. just another note on accuracy - they will outshoot 99% of people who have ever picked one up.
    i would have no reservations in owning another or recommending one to a fellow forum member.
    my one of choice is the superlite karbine in .177

    the rifle action is available in karbine or classic length, with a choice of superlite (ambi, poplar), standard left or right (beech or walnut), or thumbhole (walnut) stock.
    the karbine action is the lightest due to it being 4 inch shorter than the classic length. the superlite is the lightest of the stocks, so the lightest configuration is the superlite karbine

    Specs on the range can be seen here.
    Looks like the a poplar stock rifle is lighter than a beech stock carbine, but not the walnut or poplar carbines. Not much in it though. I'm assuming only the superlites come dressed in poplar from the factory.

    The 400 series of rifles are great...they will do everything more expensive rifles will do and be a lot more reliable that a lot of other rifles.I have had a few S400,s over the years...no trouble with any of them.....highly recomended'
