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.

    I've used quieter Ian, but it does work down range OK. Was plinking with it this evening and two pigeons landed in my trees and weren't phased by the shooting at all.
    This doesn't have a 1/2" standard threaded barrel.

    Nice rifle, I think they look pretty good.

    What sort of groups and shot count do you get?

    Haven’t had much of a chance to shoot it since bringing it home, well distance shooting any way.

    What I have found out is, it’s low on power. It’s only putting out just over 9fpe with 14.5-16g or 10.5fpe with Bis Mags. This will get rectified as it’s going back next week. I could do it myself as no AT fitted, but I won’t as it’s new. As a side note these things will put out 35fpe in .22.

    Only been able to shoot it over 20yds. But it will bury one pellet on another at that distance using. H&N FTT’s.

    I have shot ten mags through it and the power output has stayed consistent, so yes the REG works. This was three quarters full too the low pressure on the gauge. They say about 140 shots from full.

    So really it’s a work in progress.

    What I will say, it fits me well, balances well and the weight (3kilos) for me is fine. The problem hasn’t put me off the rifle. I could have spent £1500 on a Daystate and still ended up with low power that needs sorting.

    I stopped using bis mags for top weight power testing ages ago. They just aren't represenative of that any more and i feel sap power.
    i'd suggest trying jsb heavy

    Very nice. Does it have an adjustable pull and weight, 2 stage trigger? And what is the capacity of the magazine?

    Haven't got round to any adjustments on the trigger as its gone back to the importer, so can't really say what it has as yet.
    The magazine holds 11 .22's. The 11th needs pushing in with something otherwise it jams. As the mag is turned for the next pellet it's pushed in a little. The last one doesn't do that last turn in the mag. Found it easier just to load 10.
