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.

    Thank you.

    '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.

    I got a second lot of on-line tickets through (with same Nos and barcode as the first lot). I assume I cannot sell these at the door as they use (what) to check them.

    The trigger was spot on, the action very quick & dead, not too heavy although still no lightweight, a very useful hook - more "meat" on the bottom of both paddles for those of us who ground the rear, squared cheek-piece rather than curved.

    There isn't going to to be a specific HFT version but with the nice hook, squared cheek-piece, reasonable weight & superb trigger & lick time I can see it being a fantastic HFT rifle.

    The palm shelf screws into the bottom pf the grip. There will be the option to have no palm shelf and without it the grip is spot on - I would say similar in depth to the EV2 - so we won't need to be chopping any of it off!

    It is planned to have a windicator without the level for us HFT bods but I pointed out to Claire a level is still useful when setting up/practicing/pellet testing so maybe just a small cover to use when in a comp could be better.

    There will a shorter cheek-piece post option.

    There will be the ability to lock the hamster to prevent accidental movement during HFT comps.

    Over all the needs of both disciples have been fully considered. The rifle is a joy to shoot & I can't wait for the production models - once the first production models have been produced there will be further field testing before they are made available to us to make sure the final article is everything Air Arms want it to be.

    Overall, an amazing rifle to shoot. Air Arms have really gone to town on this. the development costs to date are eye watering & there has been no compromise.
