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.

    I have a shrouded walnut model and is very good however the shroud was useless as a moderator and with the vc fitted to long so I brought a huub from Xtx air and is a great bit of kit and just as quiet as the vc.

    i believe the 3rd one is the super carbine. exactly same as the vc model, but with a shorter barrel (approximately 80mm shorter, I think). this is the one I'd go for

    Its all cosmetics. Mine was standard buts its been jb'd and shortened and looks the better for it....If youve got a chance to get a carbine then go for it. they look nicer and are easier to handle.

    .177 all the way mate. you have the choice of a light, medium or heavy pellet, but all have better trajectory than .22

    just about mate. i think bsa saw how popular barrel shortening was on this model, and for once, acted on what the customer wants

    as opposed to standard ....

    I use my .177 for everything and my .25 for fun. TBH Ive lost a few rabbits and pigeons though...they run or fly before they realise they are actually dead...doesnt happen often. The .25 on the other hand stops them instantly.

    I suspect that's exactly what they've done - looking at the two in the rack the other day the barrels looked exactly the same length.

    Fair play to BSA for responding to customer demand.. I'd be interested to know how the shot count compares to that of the standard rifle though - short barrels and the lower operating pressures of regs don't usually make for a particularly efficient combination.

    The HW100 is a good case in point - going by factory figures the full-length rifle gets 110 shots from its 175cc cylinder and 410mm barrel in .177. The carbine gets 50 shots from its 105cc cylinder and 310mm barrel. Bearing in mind that their operating pressure range is the same, as a crude means of comparison the full-length gun "uses" about 175/110=1.6cc per shot while the K "uses" 105/50=2.1cc per shot - over 30% more air use per shot on account of the shorter barrel..

    not got the r10 mate, but would love one. we have a customised ultra - its little brother !
    its a .177 and loves 10.4 gr weihrauch magnums - they hit like a brick, and its the perfect hunting tool - compact, pointable and deadly accurate. and its a bit of a looker too ....

    I like your customised ultra looks great mate, if a 22 came up in carbine would you get or hold out for 1.77

    calibre is a personal choice mate, and I'm a confirmed .177 shooter. if it were me, I would choose the .177. both have pros and cons, but I believe that the smaller calibre is more versatile, has better trajectory, and lastly, the pellets cost much less. you're also right about the forum.
