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.

    Hi All,

    Let me just say I'm really new to Air Rifle shooting and even newer to this forum so be gentle.

    Basically I'm on the look out for a decent air rifle, I really like the look of the gas piston rifles rather than conventional spring, I'm under the impression this may be a little controversial in the air rifle community. However iv been looking at the Gamo Silent Stalker Whisper IGT .22.

    I went down to my local gun dealer and got talking and he completly threw me when he told about the new Remington's air rifles coming out in a couple of weeks.

    Basically my question is does anyone have any views on the Gamo and also do you think the Remington's are worth waiting for?

    Iv tried to do some googling on the remington's but can't seem to find anything, do they have a gas piston rifle in their new range?

    And input would be greatly appreciated.

    Ideally I'm trying to keep it under £200, but I don't mind creeping over this slightly if it's a better rifle.

    For a first rifle the Remmington Express has all the features of a more expensive rifle,it is well worth having & i would choose this springer over a Gamo or cheap rammer.I do have one myself:)
    If you really want a gas ram try & get a Theoben.

    I'd go for a hw99 if you can add £45-50 on top for a much better gun

    You mention the remington express is a springer? Do you know if the new range has a gas ram version? Like iv said iv tried looking into them online but can't seem to find anything.

    Avoid gas rams at that price point,they are sealed units and poor quality.

    I'd look at either going over budget for a HW99,buying a HW99 second hand or a Hatsan mod 55s, all will be better than the other guns ;)

    How about a nice full power, silenced carbine? Should be able to pick up a Hatsan Breaker for under £100.

    I have a Hatsan 60S which I would highly recommend and I also have a HW50S (same as 99S) which is a better rifle but its not 100% better tho it cost 100% more. Not had a look at the new Hatsan 900X which SAmole is talking about but it looks pretty good and excellent value.
