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.

    Think of it as a big Ultra with a regulator already, they are good if you like the MMC!

    Ive had a quick go on one at the range accuracy wise it was great, shooting the painted 35 yard zero plate it appeard to be pellet on pellet.
    It has a front cocking knob(MMC) like an ultra but as the Hornet is longer cocking it is a bit more arkward then an Ultra.

    I found the MMC very light to push in to cock though, very handy if stalking as you can have a pellet in the barrel and walk around with the gun uncocked, then if you see a quarry push the MMC and your cocked ready to shoot, if the quarry runs off its easy to uncock the gun.
    At the plinking range it can be a pain it the arse as you still have to load a pellet similar to a bolt action but you have to do another action by pushing the MMC.

    The Ultra was developed from the Hornet!

    I had one that'd been JB blueprinted. It was an excellent gun and I cleared an FT course with it BUT I know of a couple of others who had one not JB'd and had issues with the regs.

    Word of warning, if you are after one it might be worth having a word with the legendary Mr Bowkett, I know he had a few single shot ones "factory fresh" that he was blueprinting and offering for sale! So get the best you can, buy one direct from him!

    I have rebuilt a .22 single shot as a project. Re-blued the barrel and cylinder with cold blueing chemicals, replaced all internal seals, stripped and Danish oiled the stock.
    It is amazingly accurate as long as you get the trajectory right.
    Thinking about selling if you don't find anything else as I prefer .177. Picture attached.
