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.

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.

    Hello Dan
    No don't have one myself but there are some good reviews on them
    Vermin hunters seem to rate them as does big Dan
    Looks like they are a fair bit of kit for the money
    Personally I prefer the standard M16 in the looks department with the sleek sporter stock but wouldn't mind testing any of the M16 family just to see how they are

    I don't hide the fact that I love the M16's. :D

    The D model is the ugliest but it does allow you to remove the buddy bottle for filling and it also comes with a quick fill probe built into the rifle if you'd rather fill it that way.

    The A model is my favourite of the two buddy bottle versions as although you cant remove the bottle to fill the rifle the stock is a bit longer than the D model so it covers up the connection between the bottle and the action making it far less hideous.

    I agree with @Kev The Fish regarding the standard model though.. it's by far the best looking of the three and it shoulders incredibly well despite the fact that believe it or not it's actually heavier than its buddy bottle counterparts (6.9lbs for the M16A, 7.02lbs for the standard M16).

    Get yourself some H&N FTT's or Baracuda's and they're absolutely pellet on pellet. :thumb:

    You wont regret getting one.
    I have two M16A in .177 and M16 in .22.

    Both good rifles, and accurate.
    Look at y Previous posts you see pictures of groups from both the .177 and .22 rifle at varying ranges.

    Both of mine are keepers.

    Right I'm back!

    I've just tested a .177 M16D and we got 260 shots before the regulator started to fall off.

    You may get more than that as this one was slightly hot out of the box with Baracudas but it has since been turned down. Hope this helps.

    I do keep thinking of one of these as I want high shot count but not Rapid money.
    Are they reliable?
    What are they like if you get issues?
