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.

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.

    A few years ago AA came out with a whacky idea to place two air cylinders side by side. I thought it was a bit of a gimmick at the time but never actually handed one.

    Did anyone take the plunge and buy one? If so, are they horribly front heavy or as good as AA claimed?

    had a go with one just as it was launched at the AAOC meet a couple of years ago, yes it is pig ugly, but to me it was very nicely balanced to shoot and if I had the chance to pick one up cheap I would go for it

    hello, i met AA at the game fair and asked about a buddy bottle rifle, no call for them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. and i agree the 2 cylinder jobbies ugh!!!!!!!!!!!!! why!!!!!!!!! maybe had to many cylinders in the AA stores:D they only need to make 1 light cylinder for 100 shots say just longer than the S200 one, if they dont bring out something special in the next few years most foriegn manufacturers will take over with their cheaper PCPs

    I liked them:)

    Just same action as the rest of the AA s510 range, just TC that's all, I bet they will become highly collectable in the future you watch.

    I've never seen one in the flesh, but I've always thought "hmm"...

    I'm kinda interested in 'em, and as engraver says it's the same action as the 510. Some of my interest comes from how collectable they'll be in the future, as I know there won't be a huge amount of them in circulation.

    It's horses for courses, but I wouldn't say they were the ugliest rifle out there. That new Walther R8 (including buddy bottle!) makes me go "urgh" much more than the TC to be honest.

    EDIT: Guaranteed you'll be the only one at the range with one anyways. :D

    I dont blame you ....the normal s410/510 are so much better to look at ....I think the tc would be ok if you could buy one cheap and I mean cheap

    AA claim it can get 275 shots in 22 full length rifle.. I still wouldnt have it if it done 500 shots.. It's ugly and looks to bulky to be ppractical.
