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.

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.

    Hi all,

    I'm thinking of swapping out the standard chokes on my 525 for some extended chokes. Unsure of what I should be looking for if i'm totally honest as I have only ever admired extended forks from afar, and only shot with them a few times. The standards are invector and all I can find are invector plus? Any recommendations please?

    I am not a Browning man but my friend is and when he bought some extended chokes from Teague, he could not get on with them as he found them to make it feel front heavy ............................................................ I simply told him to leave the booze alone but he got rid of them. I am a Beretta man using extended chokes in my guns and would not have it any other way.

    It is worth speaking to an rfd as Browning, like Beretta, have a number of chokes in the range so it is not worth taking any risk and get the wrong ones or speak to Browning UK with your serial number to establish what is available. You could ask on 'shoot clay forum' and there are often chokes for sale on there.

    Teague are the standard recommendation for after market chokes and the titanium extended ones look pukka.

    Any extended choke will make the gun front heavy so expect to pay circa £60-70 to have it rebalanced.

    Your gun takes Invector chokes “only” and no other.
    Why would you want extended chokes ? is it because other’s around you have them ?
    Learn to shoot with the chokes you have fitted firstly.
    If you are new to clays what chokes do you have fitted ? the regulation 1/4 and 1/2 are always recommended when you first start, you can them move on in size the more competent you get, ie 3/8 and 5/8, 1/2 and 3/4 etc.
    And if you do move onto extended chokes in the future rebalancing the gun is as easy as falling off a log and something you can accomplish yourself.

    Disagree on the rebalancing being easy.... If you're stocks not drilled to accept weights then you'd need a pillar drill to do it properly and it's costly if you balls it up.... My Beretta 690 black comes ready for stock weights but if it didn't I'd be paying £70 to have it balanced as opposed to trying to drill it myself.

    I've got both extended and flush chokes for my 686E Evo,just compared the difference in weight,can't tell any difference in the hand and certainly can't tell any difference at the far end of a 30" barrel.
    I prefer the flush chokes over the shiney bits sticking out the barrel and easier to get in the slips I've got,absolutely cannot tell any difference in the way they pattern,more of a fashion item in my opinion.
