    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.

  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.

    Chinese offerings notwithstanding there's not a lot of choice for £450 or less.The 3 that immediately come to mind are the AA S200,Gamo Coyote and Walther RM8 assuming you're talking about new guns. if you shop around you might be able to get a BSA Ultra single shot for about £450 but that's about it really.There may be something in the Hatsan or Kral range for about that price.
    My own personal opinion would be if you can get a AA S200 or Ultra single shot for that money then i'd go for either of those but they are totally different physically so you'd need handle/shoulder them but ideally look at them all and handle/shoulder them all.

    I’d look at the Phox and Coyote for new, second hand wise take your pick from AA, HW and BSA

    Thank you all - I was thinking Phox/ rm8 and just assumed the AA was out of price...

    Are these lower end rifles truly regulated or are they just a bleed style valve.

    I understand the Chinese stuff isn’t a true regulator and sees a hike in power as the pressure drops...

    Doesn’t help accuracy! I have a ratty and know the issues of that when co2 pressure changes...

    If it were between Phox/ coyote and rm8 what would be the best bet for accuracy and reliability?

    Is the Phox available without the package?

    £450 new will get you a AA S200 single shot (multi shot kit available) or a BSA ultra multi shot

    dont think by spending more gets you a more accurate gun

    i have had all singing all dancing guns costing twice as much but the two guns i mentioned are every bit as accurate as the more expensive offerings, just think you could get charging gear and a good scope for the same price as say a new R10

    None of them are regulated apart from the RM8 which is apparently is in some way according to some people but don't let that affect your choice as apart from giving you a few extra shots per charge and smoothing out the power curve it will have little or no affect on accuracy.

    Thank you all. I broke the golden rule - popped into countryways spoke with a very informative and helpful Andy. And didn’t stick to my budget lol...

    I’m now down to 2!

    Trusted Weihrauch HW110 - beautiful rifle, 70 odd shots, 2 magazines with it and touch cheaper

    Or and FX streamline.

    Both felt amazing, came up to the eye beautifully - the FX more so (pistol grip felt too wide on HW a touch)

    Heart is FX but head says Hw as slightly (fractionally) cheaper, another mag, cheaper spares... I don’t know FX that well - are they good?

    What should I do??

    Be in .177

    Thank you for popping in today. Our stock of the HW100 are at the pre-price increase price. When we next need to re-order our HW100s will be £835.
    Andy asked me (Paul) after you had been about stock of the FX Streamline in .22.
    Technically ASI have these rifles in stock in the smooth twist, but they are waiting for the new smooth twist x barrels from FX to change them over.
    They will not sell me any of the smooth twist rifles, and they have no idea when the smooth twist x barrels will be in stock.
    But as you see this morning we have a .177 Synthetic streamline smooth twist in stock.

    Thanks Paul - thankfully it’s the hw110 I’m after! In .177 is that due a price increase?

    It was also the .177 streamline - are these in stock? Are subject to same changes?!

    What would be the benefit of waiting for the new x barrel? I’m assuming price hike ?

    1 thing to consider is weight and the rm8 is pretty heavy imho. I have the coyote .177 and find it a great rifle for the price. accuracy I find is great considering I'm new to shooting I'm very happy, still got to learn to take my time and get used to my scope though, shots per fill are pretty good also about 80. I would love a aa multi shot but don't fancy filling every 40 shots
