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.

    At some point in the near future I am considering buying an Air Arms rifle. If I buy the S400 is it possible to convert it to a 10 shot later on or would I be better buying the S410 in the first place.

    The s400 can be converted to multishot and will cost around £60 for the kit, the 400 is cheaper than the 410 so if you can get a nice 400 at a good price ite well worth converting that....

    Pay the extra a go straight for the 410. If you get the 400 u have to buy a mag assembly and its a manual index

    Yup, get the S410 from the off as while to Rowan mag for the S400 is good, you have to index it yourself so it's not as slick as the S410.

    Plus if you do need single shot in the future (HFT for example) you can use one of Rowan's excellent single shot adaptors ;)

    More than you'll use in a single hunting trip, that's for sure. I don't think I've ever counted an exact number of shots but I can easily do a heavy evening's ratting with mine with no drop=off in consistency.

    Depends on the size of your cylinder, the S410 isn't the largest but 60-75 shots is great for a days hunting but plinking can see the air go down fast.

    As I said I am a novice so bear with me. I understand that PCP rifles used compressed air and that this is supplied via a diving bottle but what are buddy and non-buddy bottles.

    The buddy bottle rifles have a bottle that in most cases is taken off the rifle, filled with air and screwed back onto the rifle
    I say in most cases as you can on some buddy bottled guns leave the bottle on the rifle and fill it with a probe
    The non buddy bottled guns have a reservoir permanently attached to the rifle which you fill with air via a quick fill probe that is just pushed in to a hole in the cylinder and filled like that
    The buddy bottle guns can be a wee bit nose heavy but you get a lot more shots from one of these

    Thank you. Is one type more expensive than the other? I assume that the AA S400/410 that I am considering is non-buddy type which suggests that buddy type are more expensive.

    I wouldn't say that's a rule of thumb mate but you won't go wrong with a S410
    They are very good rifles

    I think buddy bottles have a larger shot count and have the benefit of being removable so can be sent away for testing/repair, also you can carry around spares which is handy if you don't have easy access to charging gear.
