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,

    Hopefully someone with the knowledge on here will be able to give me some advice on the price of my sons (he is 12 lol) scope that he currently has fitted on his AA S410 Classic .22. It is a....
    Hawke Nite-Eye 6.5-20x50 AO IR Rifle Scope + 9-11 mm dovetail mounts and elastic end caps
    It is in excellent condition, no marks and great clear glass and will be soon available via the forum. I actually love this scope as its light, the clarity is excellent and as the name suggests it is great in very low light conditions. I will only be selling it as he wants to get into FT shooting and wants a side focus scope so I've just got him a MTC Optisan Viper 4-16x50 IRS scope with large side wheel, Sportsmatch swing bubble level, metal cover flip up caps, sun shade and mounts :). Unfortunately I have no box for the Hawke but I will have the means to securely wrap it for posting.

    Hopefully someone will know.

    Cheers,

    John.

    Not heard of that scope before? Quick google didn't find much, so it is presumably not made, sold anymore, discontinued? There was a USA site selling that scope, or one very similar to it for $179 which is about £140, so using the old 2/3rds of new price if in good condition, that would suggest about £85? or maybe a bit lower to encourage a fast sale, £70 to £75 or so?

    I brought the sf digi nite eye secondhand for £100 so I’m guessing about £60-£70

    Just a reminder that this isn't a sales thread and anyone found attempting to trade outside of the sales section will be banned.

    This is a pretty old model so I'd reckon ballpark £60 for the scope and another £5-10 for the mounts depending on what they are and assuming it all works OK / is in good nick.

    FWIW this having a higher mag and larger objective than the MTC will most likely make it a better bet for rangefinding in FT, so you might not want to get rid of it just yet!

    @cloverleaf don’t worry this is by no means being sold outside of the scope sales forum as and when I’m ready to sell, I simply needed to know a price to put it up for when I do. I appreciate all the comments and the suggested price is what I had guessed but wanted to make sure with other more informed members in this forum. Thank you. The main reason for wanting to sell it is because my sons only 12 he struggles to hold the rifle and adjust the focal on the objective lens at the end hence why I’m getting an MTC with side focus with a large wheel. It also has open and zero lock turrets so easy to dial in with clicks for targeting when FT shooting. I personally love the SCB reticle on the viper scopes and the clarity on them is also very good. Thanks again and look out for the old but great Hawke Nite eye when it goes up for sale....in the correct sales forum of course!! All the best, John.

    £60ish - but your replacement is no use for FT where you use the side focus for range finding, realistically your looking at a x32 mag minimum for that discipline, but x50 mag is 99% what's used :oops:
