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.

    Thank you.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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.

Air Arms S410 Classic Walnut ThumbHole Rifle Review

    AA S410 Carbine

    I picked up my new S410 carbine on Friday evening.

    First impressions are of the apparent delicacy of the barrel, it's not built to take the self-cocking bending stresses of a springer. Also, it seems absurdly short!

    I have put a couple of shots through it to check that it actually works. I was expecting the carbine report to be louder than a full length rifle but I was surprised that it was as loud as it was. Next purchase will be a silencer.

    The bolt seemed very easy to operate. The only other PCP rifle I can compare to is a BSA (T10, I think) where the cocking mechanism consisted of a metal rod sticking out of a slot. The S410 is infinitely preferable in this respect.

    The weather at the weekend prevented zeroing of the Richter scope. First impression of this is that it's ok but is obviously not an expensive scope.

    I'll be getting the scope sorted-out this week and then start shooting some groups - small ones, I hope.

    Good review,the newer guns have a three stage trigger which is a lot better,and also have a safety catch built into the trigger.

    Mines the later one with the 3 stage trigger and safety in trigger. I find it's loud even with a silencer on :eek: I was wondering if it would be possible to get the barrel screwcut to take a 1/2" UNF silencer. Does anyone know if this is possible?/

    Thanks so much for the review it has helped me a great deal. I was looking at upgrading from my springer as I have learnt enough tricks and have got used to airgunning. I have been informed by several differnt sources there preferences and I was looking at purchasing a HW100 S carbine.. however something has cropped up that negates me spending £700+ on one.

    I went to local 'smiths' today and saw an AA S410, but it was not the carbine nor did it have the thumb hole and I cant recall it having the adjustable butt either. This may sound a stupid question but which is the better rifle for field, the one you have reviewed or the one I saw today? The cost for the one I saw today was £525 does that sound reasonable?

    Any comments apart from 'Dohh' would be greatly appreciated and taken on board.
