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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

  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.

    That looks like it saves a little length on the pard in terms of eye relief.

    I think the scopes with longest eye relief I have here are a Sidewinder and a Frontier at100mm/4 inches, which look like with this add on, the old hanging over the but pad may be a thing of the past!

    I'm going to have a punt, as Jimmypie says, with the OW return guarantee, you can't really lose - unless they get even cheaper.

    This is getting as cheap as the old Yukon with the scope mount 10 years ago.

    I literally was just about to start a thread on this with a video but you beat me to it :D

    I'll include it anyways but from first glance it looks extremely good and is as compact if not more so than the nv007s and for the stated £150 its almost to good to be true :eek: anyways here's the link



    Enjoy :thumb:


    p.s
    I was gonna title the thread "base in your face pard" :roflmao:

    p.p.s everyone's thoughts please :up:

    That does look interesting, and for that money, it looks very interesting!
    I might be wrong, but given the position of the focus and dioptre adjustment controls it looks like both the sensor and the display are mounted at the top of the unit and mirrors are being used to get light into the sensor and light from the display out to the users eye.
    That does help to keep the body short and allow the rifle to be mounted better.

    Cheers

    Certainly looks good for that price, and easy to set up, good video but he needs to wear a different coloured T-shirt so the unit stands out;)
    Look forward to your thoughts;)

    I could not find any info about how much recoil can it handle.
    I understand it is primarily air and rimfire ranges device. But for hunting wild boars 100m is more than enough. It just need to handle 8x57 or 30-06 recoil.

    I think the fact that Optics warehouse clearly state it is designed for air rifle and rimfire use indicates that it is probably not built to handle the recoil from high energy centrefires like 8x57 and 30-06
    To be able to sell it for £150, compromises on build quality will have been made.

    Cheers

    Its ideal for the air rifle on the rats and for that price you could buy another for spotting them happy days

    Anybody any idea if that collar on these units would fit over the awkward knurled ocular ring on the MTC viper scopes? Cheers:thumb:
