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.

    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.'

  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.

    I agree this could be an excellent gun - is there a release date or way to put your name down on it yet?

    All this excitement building up is *calibarist that's what it is!
    I have no doubt that Air Arms would never consider making one of these target rifles in .22 but those of you who have had a play with the prototypes do they think a .22 barrel would be able to be fitted or is it similar to the FTP where that wasn't an option due to the way the barrel fitted the action?




















    *I do realise there is no such word as "calibarist" and if there was, it wouldn't be spelt like that :p

    Same as when we went from pro target to EV2, supposed to be redesigned regs, proof will be in the eating as they say. I will give it a year after launch, to see if its been improved on or not. :rolleyes:

    Wow they have done themselves proud there. There was a recent thread hovering around Air Arms lack of innovation and creative engineering ,well if that rifle doesn't prove they can ,nothing will. I always thought that Clare had guts to take on the old guard of the ft world. Hopefully this technology will give them confidence to innovate their other guns.

    This was a very smart move, several people in the circuit have tried it and liked it, even though it's not 100% yet, I have not heard a bad word about it from anyone who has actually shot it, I'm hoping it's a real cracker and at an affordable price, lets say under £1500 so as not to be silly, but with DS asking £1800+ for a RW and Steyr getting well past £2k for some of it's hardware I thing we passed silly a long time a go:rolleyes:

    I suspect 2k plus a bit.
    A current FTP retails at what 1.8k?
    Add the new AA specific barrel, that hamster etc and there's a fair bit of extra quality and work.

    No release date yet. There is more field testing to be done so I suspect it will be a while off.

    I believe there is to be an HFT specific version as well as an FT one. That's a great move IMO - I would have liked an HFT version of the FTP900 so this is good to hear.

    With the work that has gone on/continues to go on & the full on collaboration with the target shooting community I reckon the new rifles will be spot on.

    It's unlikely due to hammer bounce :facepalm:

    Maybe if the hammer was a bit bigger, and sealed at one end, the big spring could somehow be used to generate enough force for it to accelerate the pellet. Could possibly even get rid of the air cylinder. The cocking lever does look a bit small though. Maybe make that a bit bigger too, possibly enough space under the barrel somewhere
