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.

    Anybody have any inside info as the mag doesn't give much away?

    If it going to look anything like the monstrosity in the picture of the cover you posted they must be expecting a lot of blind people to be taking up shooting.

    There isn't much too give away, that's only a prototype and will be getting some fairly substantial further mods. I will get some trigger time with the next version early in the year.

    Everyone has asked about the colour... it's just a disruptive pattern vinyl wrap,covering up the chopped up ftp stock underneath.

    But the one pictured, despite being far from a finished piece, shoots really rather well.

    Despite not being the final piece, the action is already very refined and shoots great.
    The firing cycle is slick,and very dead on firing.

    There has been some real thought put into getting the balance and handling well set out.

    The final guns,will be in a nice minnelli laminate, the overall shape will be much like it is now,although there will be some changes to the hardware.
    And the palm shelf arrangement is also being changed.

    It's the only gun in the last 5 years that has really grabbed my attention, it's a fair sized gun,but handles and shoots brilliantly.

    I think the stock looks great for the type of gun. I would not want it on a normal airgun but these type of competition guns are different.

    Looks like a promising replacement for the FTP; which IMO was really just a bloated, showy and largely inferior rehash of the EV2.

    @tillygti6 - from "your" example, have Air Arms finally learnt the importance of floating the barrel? The muzzle assy on that one still seems dangerously ambiguous..

    Sadly I don't think I'll be interested as it'll doubtless be pushing £2k and based on past experiences they won't bother to make any LH actions :(

    It will certainly be able to be floated fully, whether it comes with a band or something from factory, I dont know. Personally I'd think having an easily removable band or hft500 type setup would be best. Then the owner can decide wether to do it themselves.

    I've not had any real input into this gun, but the team that have, are some of the most experienced shooters in europe.so we are in pretty good hands.

    There has been talk of lefty actions, essentially they are no problem. But getting the small numbers of lefty stocks from minnelli is very costly.

    It would be nice if it was offered as an action only,but I dont know what the final options will be.

    I like the thumb position options.
    So many 'custom' stocks get that bit so wrong
