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.

    looking at shop ad's in airgunner and so on the BSA ultra seems the cheepest PCP.

    is it the cheapest for a reason?

    also is it any good and is it to small to be accurate at about 45yds?

    would i be better off getting a secondhand Air arms s200 multishot?


    not buying one just good to know...curiosity:D

    They're alright, the same as Airforce (in the US) but I was going to modify it. I tried to get my local gun shop to order one in for me but they refused, said it wasn't "worth their while" ... anyway, that's not the reason for deciding against getting one.

    i think its the small air cylinder, they dont shoot many pellets, silencer isnt very good either, they are screw fit so a logun or Weihrauch makes them alot better

    hi a1 i have an ultra .22 single shot, you are right about shot count,
    i get about 40 good shots before they start to drop,
    and would say about inch groups at 45 yards.

    hi

    I had one and sold it..
    the shot counts crap and mine was multi shot and that was crap as it a mess around..
    overall there not bad for the money as they are ideal for certain situations..
    they have no problem out to 45 with jsb adzacts or air arms...
    zero is a right mess about as by the time you get close you have to re fill:confused:..
    i am sure the s200 dont throw many shots out either..
    go for a scorpion mate "i would" and if your spending £300 try scrape a extra £30 and go for a s400..
    depends what your gun shops charging as ours charges for bsa ultra £230 "single shot"£300 multi and £320 for s400..
    if you can travel have a day out visiting shops and checking prices..
    my advise would be buy some thing good used..

    its what i first thought.

    it is just too small for long range work:(

    if i were getting another air rifle i think id look at S200/400 and get a gag kit for them.

    the 200 doest give many shots out but still better than ultra:eek:
    would be looking at secondhand market if i were.

    might start saving up, just cut the lawn and that got me a tenner so just another 30 of them to go:D
