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.

  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.

    Evening all,

    Im looking for 2 Guns, .22LR and a 17HMR.

    I love a straight pull bolt and really wanted the new anshutz 1727f but at just over £2000 i really cang justify spending that much on a rimfire.

    So I shouldered a Browning T-Bolt and loved it, lovely gun and I think im going to get one of these in .22LR

    I might even get the same gun in .17hmr also but im also considering the anshutz 1517 although not a straight pull I still really like this gun the build quality is second no none and im sure it will last me a lifetime.

    Both guns get rave reviews so just need to decide.

    Now what Moderator would you recommend for each calibre?

    Cheers

    SAK moderator will do both. I've tried loads & struggle to tell the difference between the £40 SAK & others over £100.

    Hi Matt
    this is from a prev. thread but for me still the same HTH


    had quite a few rimfire mods to be honest on my hmr, for me the sak is certainly the best value for money but if you can/want to stretch your budget for something a bit nicer engineered and better sound reduction ( to my ears) and nicer looking , jeez how gay does that sound, then i have experience of the following

    ase utra - quite heavy and a dull finish but very effective for noise suprresion , end of barrel mod
    aetec - quite light and very nicely engineered and can add/remove baffles and to me looks the biz, however for noise supression on the HMR no better than the sak, but sooooo much nicer looking , its now on my ..22 annie 1417
    wildcat reflex mod- quite a large, wide diameter mod , easily stripped and very good noise supression, this is on my hmr at the moment and highly recommended
    DM80- as the wildcat to be honest and highly recommended only reason i sold it was it was part of the rifle package
    LEI- this was on my stainless savage 93 hmr and is tiny, about 4-5" long and same diameter as a varmint barrel , sealed unit and to be honest it was amazing, not the quitest , but not far off , but very small, light and looked amazing

    my choice now wouold be
    1. LEI
    2. Wildcat/DM80/ASE - choose which one you prefer
    3. Aetec
    4. Sak

    hope this helps
    cheers

    Hi Matt, I have just bought a Browning T bolt target varmit in 17 hmr calibre. I have to say that I find this gun amazing. Admittedly a lot is down to the power of the hmr round itself. But nevertheless the gun feels lovely and performs really well. I went for an 'A tech' moderator. I shoot vermin on equestrian properties, and I have to say that I was very worried about the crack from the gun, as I had read in the reviews that it was much louder than a .22 l/r. Whilst I appreciate that there is no way to suppress the sound from the travelling bullet {2500fps} I have to say that the performance from the 'A tech' is excellent. I used the rifle with other experienced owners of rimfires, and they were all very impressed with its performance. I have not tried any other mods on the rifle, purely because I am so impressed with the overall performance of the gun as I have it set up at this time. I can fully recommend the 'T bolt'. You will not be disappointed. KB1

    I've a Browning X bolt C/F and although it's a different beast than a rim fire, I do like the safety on the browning rifles. On top of the pistol grip purfectly placed for the thumb. Im very impressed so far with the browning even though not convinced with the we trigger in it.
