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.

    hi all

    ive ordered a hard case to use to mount my lg g2 phone to my mtc viper scope similar to iscope setup , the phone takes fantastic hd video and has a manual zoom but i need advice on a suitable tube to mount to scope and stick the hard case to , anyone done this that could supply a link to a tube that would fit tightly over the scopes eyepiece so i can glue the case to it , also do i need to have to set the tube a set distance to the phone ?

    much appreciated

    tia

    This is what I would suggest, some of the couplings, adapters etc will be a good fit with maybe a little sanding or a couple of turns of insulating tape to get it perfect. Easiest way to find the right bit is to go to B&Q and have a rummage around in the plumbing section. To fix it to the case you could try 5 minute epoxy after roughing up the contact areas, superglue is not likely to be any good for this job.

    I've done this for a Galaxy S4 with the 40mm solvent weld pipe and a phone hard case and it fits on great with a couple of wraps of insulation tape on the scope but the problem is finding an app similar to Iscope, there isn't a suitable one for Android that I can find. People have suggested camera 360 and another I can't remember what its called but they're for camera rather than video.

    The video function on the Galaxy S4 is very basic and won't let you do the same as Iscope.

    Yes you can - as long as you know the thread size you can buy an adapter from ebay in the photographic section. I would sugest getting one that goes from the scope eyepiec to 42mm and then buying a cheap set of M42 macro rings, these are 3 tubes of varying sizes which will fit onto the adapter and the other end can be epoxied to the phone case. You can use 1,2 or 3 of the rings to get the right distance between phone and scope.
    So IF your scope is 37mm thread you could get this
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/37mm-42mm...Photography_Adapter_Rings&hash=item19c533d7be
    and http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Adjustabl...ns_caps_hoods_adaptors_ET&hash=item46105ec5d8
    These are fine threads and you need to be careful or you can easily cross thread them.
