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.

    '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.'

  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. No longer allowed 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- We now do not allow political and religion threads anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section) unless Airgun related and they must be put in the Airgun related politics section..

    Staff will not move posts for you if you put it in the wrong section – it will simply be deleted. You will then have to type it all out again and put it in the right place, so heed this warning.

    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.

    personally i would go for the 510 as its the newer model, the 400 & 410 are like a ford focus. reliable, well built but loads of them about. all good rifles though.:up:

    I appreciate your chioce mate but would you then choose the S410 over the S400 if you couldn't afford the S510?

    They are all the same gun basicly.
    The only differences being:

    The 400 is single shot.
    The 410 is a 10 shot bolt action
    The 510 is a 10 shot side lever

    Reason I choose the 410 is personal preference I like a bolt action, I personally find it more rugged and faster to reload.

    Best thing to do is go and try them all and see what you like the most.
    You wont go wrong whichever you choose.

    Like I said its a personal preference thing.
    I love my 410, When I am out rat shooting I can reload in the blink of the eye yanking back the bolt and throwing it back home ready for the second shot without fear of it breaking off in my hand.
    Bolt actions dont like being pussy footed around if you get my meaning LOL
    Although it does cock very smoothly without any force needed its not as satisfying :p

    I just wouldnt have the same confidence in the side lever.
    I allways have to be real gentle with them LOL

    I have done exactly what you suggested, but the only thing that came of it was that which ever one I go for it will be the classic style as I can't get away with the shortness of the carbines. I'm not ditching them by any counts it's just my preference:).
    I can see the benefit of having the 10 round mag but can i justify spending an extra £100 on the 410 just for having an extra 9 rounds at my disposal:confused:
