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.

    Can anyone please give their views about the accuracy of these rifles. There are comments about the 14" barrel being too short and a full burn off not being achieved due to the short barrel!
    I'm deciding between a CZ452 Silhouette (16") and a 1415 LR 22.
    comments welcome,

    Don't let the barrel length put you off we have one here that does 1/2 moa groups at 50 yards. Even shot it out to 200 yards for fun and was getting just over 1 moa groups . It shoots better than my CZ455

    14 in barrel is not a problem.
    Accuracy on my fathers Anschutz 1417 .22 LR is easily as good as his CZ .17 up to a certain distance.
    In fact he said to me the other day " i cant seem to miss with the .22 "

    You will dad lol .....

    Anschutz barrells love Eley ammunition apparantly

    I've got a 14" Anschutz 1417 .22LR and it groups well but don't take it for granted that ALL Anschutz like Ely ammo as mine certainly doesn't...............but it does love Winchester subs.

    I also tested the Anschutz 1517 and the CZ455 in 17HMR before deciding which one to buy and opted for the laminate thimbhole stock CZ455 Varmint 16" barrel as the only difference between the 2 was the price, with the 1517 being nearly twice the price of the CZ.

    I've owned my CZ455 for 9 months now and after fitting a yodave trigger kit (£15) it's now my go to gun and has shot faultlessly with hundreds of rounds put through it and gives me virtually flat shooting from 50 to 150 yards. Try one if you can mate before committing to buy the Anni you'll be pleasantly surprised and will save yourself a fair bit of money.
