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.

    There is a distinct possibility that one of these may be added to my collection before Christmas.
    May I ask, what made you decide it was the right gun for you, above all others please?
    How is it different to an s400 other than the bolt action?

    The S400 was our first PCP and I like everything about it.I decided to stick with AA after trying a couple of Weihrauch at the range.I was looking for either a S410 or S510 and this came up first!
    I believe the air chamber is slightly larger on the S510 Carbine?I definitely get more shots per fill than my son does with his S400 plus the S400 is single shot and the S510 has a 10-shot Mag.
    Both are very accurate(IMO) but I also prefer the lever action over the bolt action.
    Had I purchased a different brand for my son I would possibly have stuck to that brand,assuming I got on with it.
    So I'm no help at all to you:facepalm:

    I have had both and prefer the 510 as I find it slicker to cock.

    I mainly used the 410 for hunting and had a number of instances of the bolt would be knocked open.
    Mainly due to it being carried with a sling on my back and probably getting caught on something.
    This results in a semi misfire and not hitting the quarry.

    I believe everything else is identical .

    :thumb:
    Thanks:thumb:
    It's a very nice satin finish too.I'm thinking of re-oiling it to maybe darken it slightly but wouldn't want to go too far?
    Any tips appreciated!
