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.

    '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.

    No its shrouded mate.

    Internals tuned it shouldn't need a silencer, as the shrouded barrels look to class bluing.

    I remember a guy shooting One at the side of me last time at EMFTC and I couldn't believe how quiet it was honestly no louder than a silenced pcp, don't know what tune it had but it was just like a quiet thud that's all, no muzzle blast or anything.

    Prosports don't need a silencer Dave, they're pretty quiet as they are and also a handy length.
    Have you got the standard internals to go with it? Mine had a good feel with a V mach fitted but became very sensitive. I'm now back to standard internals with a few little mods of my own that make the most of the newer type AA spring.

    You'll find it handles similarly to a TX but slightly lighter at the front end, needs a consistent hold to make the most of it but shoots well off padded sticks even without your hand being there. Heavy for walk around stalking but a great hide or static shooting rifle and so easy to work on as well. The other bonus for hunting is the silent beartrap.
    You'll enjoy it!

    Sure i will mate and tbh cant believe i now own two air arms springers not that long ago i wouldnt of even looked or held a air arms ( pcp snobbery u see ) not only that i now dont have a pcp at the house only springers but looking forward to having time with my son out and about with them can see the HW 77k been sold although the choice is going to be a hard one and based on looks alone although the 77 dosnt look to bad at all dressed in the 97 synthetic stock but im a sucker for good wood will see what the lads input is in this been a cod fan he may want to keep the hw but we shall see .

    Cant find any really bad info on the pro sport and after talking to mates big in the hft sceene they convinsed me that all 3 can be as accurate as top end pcps if you do your part and considering he owns styers and other high end match rifes can only think they must be able to do the job as they dont have springers so as to claim in some cases they put there serveral thousand pcps to shame is a big boost of confidence in the purchase atvb dave
