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.

    O.k here goes ...

    I wanted a go at hft so I got a s200 mk3 for the job , plus as a light gun for the wife to use :) but even after putting a decent scope on it I'm not happy with it and after the wife's burst of enthusiasum with it at the start she now prefers my ultra :confused:

    I've had it up for swap to no avail , so it looks like a keeper , do I

    A) get Geordie to make me a more chunky hft style stock
    B) buy a rowan hamster to give it a fatter feel
    C) try and sell it

    I like the s200 in the fact it shoots better than anything else I have , but its that stock,it just doesn't feel right .
    Really don't know what to do ????

    Help!

    Personally Alex I'd go with the cheaper option first, fit a Hamster, cant be that difficult to fit one ! or even just try a temporary one held on with Cable ties at least you'll get a better idea of how it'll feel.

    I am of the school that if it's not right, why spend money trying to make it right when you could sell it and put the money to a gun which is more suitable in the first place. I know there are exceptions to this, but to me it's not right to spend money on a relatively cheap gun, you will never get the return on you investment unless you are doing it for sentiment or because you just want to - because you can't put a price on that! If the gun were an expensive one, then any modifications would not be that great an amount in comparison to it's value, so possibly worth doing if you wanted to - but it's your gun:rolleyes:.

    I seen some nice s200's in custom stocks makes them look like a proper rifle instead of something for a child to shoot and if it's for hft and the rifle is accurate a custom stock is probably the way I would go :)

    You need to identify why the gun isn't honking your hooter before you even think about attaching stuff to it or changing anything.

    If you don't identify what's wrong, how are you going to fix it ?

    I really like the S200 as it comes, but if it doesn't fit for some reason then making it fit is the way to go, but it's no good slapping a hamster on without identifying whether that's an area of concern, or not.

    Get some soft timber and strong tape and mock something up that fits better than the current stock and go from there.

    Are you struggling with eye alignment, or does your front hand feel too high when you are trying to aim, or...

    I'm with James.
    Save some money up plus sell the rifle you don't want. Then go out and buy a proper ft that suits you, instead of trying to make a do.

    Thanks all for the replies :) I will try to mock up a temp hamsters ( never thought of that) and give it a try .

    Money is a bit tight at the moment what with buying stuff for the new dog :D so if the hamster works then I will buy the one from rowen then get geordie to make a stock when funds allow for the fuel costs getting the gun to him.

    To 177 , its the hold of it that's the problem . I can scope up fine .
