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. 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.

    well you can get them cheepys off ebay, I got one for me dad and it was fine, how ever there has been a couple of people on here over the years that have had them break while the gun was shouldered and it has snapped the stock in half when it hit the floor.
    so I'd learn from this and save up and buy a Harris, I've had mine now for ten years with no troubles at all, you pays your money :)

    These are good, a bit of patience and you should get one for about £40, they tilt and have a locking system as well and are well made.

    If you want a decent one, the best (IMO) get a Harris, if you don't want to pay the money for the Harris, the rest are very much pot luck. ;)

    3 options :D
    Cheap for under £20
    Branded with warranty £50
    Harris/sniper systems £ more

    I go with the branded option, as for me I don't use it often enough to warrant the cost, but don't want the monkey metal cheap ones (branded ones are probably the same tbh, but a friend has used a logun/webley one for 4years until it's knackered. I've had my webley one for about 3months .....

    The sniper systems one above is cheaper because it's a less populer telescopic length

    Another thing to think about with spring coming is the leg length. Watch you don't buy a bipod that is too short to use as the grass and crops start to get taller.

    You will have to swap to sticks at some point anyway but a bipod that goes taller will get you a few more weeks.

    I don't know what has prompted the seller to do it Terry but they don't start them low anymore, all start at £45 bid + P&P, never going to get a £30 steal on one anymore!

    I'm OUT!!

    That's odd I bid on some a few days ago with low starting prices but weren't worth +£40 to me at that time. They're good bipeds and seem well made and the tilt and lock are good.
