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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    Same as you Bob, I'd heard a lot of good things about these and as my RFD had a .177 in stock I tried it on the indoor range. My first impressions were it was heavier than I expected (grey laminate stock), very loud with the airstripper fitted, and at 26yds indoors it grouped no better than any other rifle I've used. I only put a couple of mags through it because it was too loud and was putting the other folk using the range off their stride ! I think you'd need an extended test, in the field, to find its advantages over anything else. I had the money in my pocket (I'd gone to buy something else but it fell through), but I was not so tempted as to fork out - this time !

    Its not gonna be any more accurate or group better than the others is it ...I'd say all top end rifles are as accurate as they can get ..It just down to what one you fancy . And yes you can fit a mod atb

    Quite simple, buy a BSA Scorpion, send to RAT Works and get what the Goldstar is just set up properly and cheaper!

    Suppose thats the only disadvantage with it being a air tube, not many shots but how many do you need if you use it for hunting.
    Your not gonna fire 70-90 shot each time you go hunting.

    You keep on sayin it's just a scorpion don't you moley you just wont let it go will you

    If you opened up a rat work's tuned scorpion and compared the internal's to a gold star se you will see there two different rifles

    Really? Same bolt action as is common to the Ultra, Scorpion, Goldstar too. Different reg to the R10, no surprise as it is tube fed. Barrel different as in length? What is different internally? Same trigger isn't it? Different valve possibly but that would be about all!

    Barrel is advertised as being slowly hammer forged, I guess they do a quickie with regular barrels :) Hammer weight and spring and transfer port could well be different as the gun is regulated. The trigger group is from R10 or could be further improved from that (I know they like some working). The firing valve itself is most likely the same. The high air usage sounds odd, I can get 100 shots within 4% ES from my tuned Scorpion. If you take a regular scorpion and add a polished barrel, Huub reg, tuned R10 trigger group, some basic tune up + adjustable stock pieces and hamster - I think the price would be pretty much the same or perhaps even more.

    Completely different regulator, A completely different barrel in length and internally finished,A better version of the R10 trigger ,Different fill valve and gauge assembly ,different hammer assembly, Fully adjustable stock and a air stripper as standard, Don't want to give to much info but you get the basic idea IT'S NOT A SCORPION mole .
