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.

    Has anyone tried one of these NV kits from Aliexpress? I'd reck the illuminator is next to useless so would need to keep an IR torch. For the money they look decent and do away with all the wires from a homebrew kit.

    Also, does anyone have a recommendation for a half decent NV spotter?

    Looks ok for ratting as I prefer the HUD when on the rats and pard007 when on the rabbits.
    In fact I’ve just clicked the buy now button :facepalm: I’ll let you know what’s it like if it gets here this winter :rolleyes: hopefully this will be as good as my home brew nv but neater. There’s a review from a guy in the USA on u tube and it looks ok , like you say might need to use a better ir torch.

    @Oat Turned up today, earlier then expected. I opted for the bigger 5 inch screen , first impressions of the unit is how well put together and solid it is but not as nice looking and refined as the scope mate.
    The mounting of the unit (using a Hawke varmint) is as solid as my pard with the eagle vision adapter , the secret of attaching it ,is to unscrew the black collar ring and slip onto the scope first then the right size adapter ring and it then screws up tight .
    The ir seems to have only one setting but does adjust from spot to flood by pulling or pushing the ir unit.
    The unit pushing onto the scope as far as it would go , gave me halo picture but I opted to pull the unit back slightly for a full picture .
    This was a view at 200 yards on 4 mag and 16 mag , the focus ring for focusing the crosshairs is solid and smooth to use . Of course the big test will be at night , when I get a chance I will test it at dark using the on board ir and my t38 .

    Nice work fella, and quick delivery too.
    Be interested how you get on with it and the rats. And if all works well i'll get one ordered from the golden bamboo :p

    Tried mine outside tonight using the on board ir . Firstly I attached a piece of red filter film and once I got the crosshairs dead centre I marked screen with a silver sharpie pen to make things easier to level up when connecting the unit. 81220959-681B-4CC6-9E85-8A153165666A.jpeg I was impressed with the ir , the hft target is 50y but the view was a bit better then this picture. 47B61142-8E4C-4890-90D0-5C699C239C1C.jpeg I would say the ir was probably the same power as my t38 on setting 2 and you can control the brightness a bit from controlling the spot / flood.
    I did try it on a different scope (Hawke eclipse) and got a better picture, probably down to the bigger front lens letting in more ir.
    I would say this is good for ratting distances for the money, the only downside is the screen is a bit to close to view , I had to put my reading glasses on to see the reticle properly.
