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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    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.

    To clear this text box, click on the 'X' in the top right-hand corner.

    I dont think its a band waggon to be honest i think its evolution of the sport . sub 12 air is limited as a hunter and every advantage needed . if a whole rifle can be wrapped into the length of the barrel and as a unit be unobtrusive effective light weight and functional im in :up:

    Thats how I started with the rapids but my mk1 has transformed into a mk2 now. Went and saw another genius and gent in Phild and he regged it and changed the guts of it, top class work and it's a laser gun now. I add a cs800 stock to it and a reflex carbon DMX silencer. It's now a mk2 really so I went out and bought another mk1 to play with

    hello, i have a genuine nut shot silencer for a R10 .22 this is combined silencer and over shroud and the quality of build/engineered is first class, i also have 2 of matts silencers and these are in my opinion of same quality for a standard type, i also use a HW on my vermy as what came with it and these are very good to, so what are we striving for when it comes to our rifles, there is no way you can completly stop the noise made by a springer or pcp or other types but we can go a long way to reduce pellet exit report. going back to the theoben/nutshot and original price of £400 and would say a lot of work and skill and man hours went into making this one off unit so the £280 was i think a good deal for the buyer. i have said many times its a pity air rifle manufactures uk and abroad dont listen to well as to what is required when so many of us shooters buy a rifle and then proceed to make it shoot better and sometimes quiter, but then our tuning/ tuning kits/ etc and those we know who make and do can still be in business, look what forum members do for n/v, torches, matts silencers,matts pull throughs the list could go on, we have some very skilled/talented members on here and long may it last

    Yes Nick is very down to earth and will only make his mods for a very select few !!

    Pure class at what he does but is very unassuming and will help anyone in any way he can as most of the lads will on the Theoben-Rapid forum
