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.

    She did say that the stock ''may'' change , looking at it the bottom of the pistol grip looks like it might detach !

    Early on they said there would be different hamster designs for FT and HFT, I'd like to think that also included the rest of the stock as there's bits on that one that would need changing for HFT.
    The stock looks very nice, did you have any input in that @tillygti6 ?

    Here's my take for an HFT version:

    Action - Bang on as it is.
    Hamster - Base it on the FTP one. Maybe not enough adjustment options for FT shooters but great for HFT IMO.
    Cut down the pistol grip but keep a slimmed down palm shelf option as some HFT shooters like them, some don't.
    Butt hook - Actually looks very good. Both paddles looks to have some decent meat on the which is not quite the case with the EV2 or FTP900. There's no real need for the adjustment lever so maybe remove this to get the cost down a bit.
    Windicator/level - Put a sliding cover on it so the level can be covered up. Otherwise great.
    Cheekpiece - This appears to have a squarish flat top which I prefer. I would say most HFT shooters prefer this as well. The post needs to be a lot shorter!
    Generally slim down the fore-end - should be easy without the fully adjustable hamster to house.

    With the FT version looking like it is going to tick all the boxes, I don't think it will take too much to have an HFT version that does the same for HFT shooters.

    No mention of the barrel.
    I'm sure I read in a rag LW had produced something special but were not allowed to disclose details?

    Yeh Clare just said it’s 15mm which is what people wanted....

    I honestly can’t see why Clare/air arms would go down the route of so much interaction with top FT shooters and then fit AT..no one wants it

    come on AA no AT PLEASE!

    I think it's more than just a 15mm LW barrel.
    I'm sure I read there's shenanigans going on with the jiggery pokerey rifling but it's hush hush mums the word.....

    Its a top grade Lw barrel.

    anti Tamper is on due to Uk Gun control, Aa wants to be seen to be doing their bit to help keep things legal.
