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.

    You won’t go far wrong with the s410,I’ve owned the superlite,the only thing I didn’t like was that the stock marked easily with it being made of poplar.i currently own a pre anti tamper model s410 which has the older style beech stock which I prefer

    Yes... all the s400 s410 range use the exact same actions

    the stocks are the only differences

    my favourite has always been the walnut carbine

    walnut is the lightest wood they use and most definitely the best looking

    Cheers guys,

    Just got to get December outta the way (I won't use the c-word), far too early for it..

    I'm going to go 177 I think!

    Thanks again, you answered what I thought I already knew... If that makes any sense at all!?

    S410, excellent, but imo get the Walnut or standard beech, the Superlite poplar stock is just to soft ;)

    Without starting the calibre debate...

    I have a 177 s410 carbine... it is incredibly accurate and a real pleasure to own.

    deadly hunting rifle.

    I also have an FAC .22 huntsman... which shoots very similar to the sub 12 s410...

    this has led me to think that .177 is the best sub-12 calibre...

    and .22 is superior with FAC power behind it.

    Cheers.. Seems all positive for s410.
    My mind is made up! Only the choice of wood to decide upon.

    Thanks for the input

    Get the Walnut stock matey! You would regret buying a Poplar one (far too easily marked).

    Echoing previous comments - poplar is very light, but it marks far too easily.

    I have an s410 classic in beech and wouldn't call that heavy.

    The walnut s410 is a thing of beauty, the superlite not so much.
    Buy the walnut and put a lighter scope on top :)

    stunning to look at,

    the lightest wood used,

    You English oil it to keep it waterproof and this will reveal the deep hidden grain

    every walnut stock is unique
