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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.

    the manometer in the end of the cylinder is a supremely stupid idea... it forces you to point a potentially loaded gun at your face

    Plastic triggers.

    Paying extra for left hand stocks.

    Cheap scope mounts.

    Seeing chewed up heads on the fastners of peoples rifles.

    Anything that attaches to the barrel with a grub screw.

    Wonky sling mounts screwed into stocks.

    Bipods on springers.

    People who insist their rifle runs at 11.9fpe.

    They'll be more that I've forgotten about. :facepalm:

    That's absolutely true, and why it's my first peeve.

    It's one of the reasons (along with price, nice stock, and all metal construction) I opted for the PR900W. :cool:

    Different strokes for different folks. I had my right eye fettled 2 days ago, I might just be able to get on with a right hand drive rifle for the first time (I'm right handed and was left eyed). Always steered clear of lefty stocks knowing this day is coming.

    Gauge on the end of the cylinders.

    I don't like the look of the thin barrel on the Air Arms S400 series. It otherwise looks perfect. Again, another visual thing, I don't like poorly spaced mounts. I understand that some will be idiosyncratic to rifle and the user to overcome mag position or similar. If there is no obstruction it looks nicer to space them evenly.

    I'm guessing they build them with the magazine going in from the left, so you don't have to work round the bolt handle.

    one or the other would do, What is needed is an industry standard otherwise stockists would need to keep left and right handed scopes :eek:. far easier to have all rifles to load from the right . when i bought my air ranger I ordered a right handed mag.

    Umarex cp88: pellets creeping back and jamming the mag
    CO2 handgun: decent power level
    pcp: handed bolt in general (would like it at the back of action, ring or syringe type)
    pcp again: mag loading on 'a side' (should load either side)
    Scope mounts: no more dovetail
    HW77: can't think of any...

    Another gripe i have is that on a HW100 i had, the manometer was on the wonk as are many others i have seen. I suppose it's pot luck if you get one that lines up. I feel a bout of OCD kicking in every time i see one.:facepalm:

    I find the barrel is well past my head when looking at my manometer on my HW100 KT, you don't have to look at it 100% head on to the barrel; People need to learn how to angle their gun so it isn't pointing in their face, it's not that hard quite honestly...:rolleyes:

    My 0.177” Crown mag only takes 22 shots, I mean... 22!

    (Pellets dropping into a mag upside down, or a pellet falling into the ‘piston area’ on a TX200 on loading and having to turn it upside down to get it back).
