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.

    can the shrouded version have a silencer put on it? i like the looks of the shrouded version it looks more tougher/robust the vc version looks a bit weak and fragile with the floating barrel if you know what i mean? but the BSA R10 is stunning looking and the stock is very nice indeed.

    You can add a silencer mate but it makes them pretty long...or you could get a huub shroud which is basically a shroud and silencer in one and keeps it short atb

    I have the shrouded version Mk2 and have a silencer fitted, awesome bit of kit mate. Get one you won't regret it.

    Couldn't agree more. I've got mk2 177 and she is spot on and also got 3 pals that have got them and again are spot on. The only problems I have heard about them have been on here. There has not been any in the 4 r10's that I am around on a regular basis.

    not had any issues with reliability with mine (had it a couple of years now). very accurate once you have found the right pellet. for the price range they are in I don't think there's anything better. being a buddy bottle rifle its got a great shot count too.

    you will get the usual suspects who will slag the R10 off:(
    i ignored all the critics and bought a new shrouded camo .177 a couple of weeks ago and love it too bits:)
    i prefer the look of the shrouded version to the vc but under the shroud the barrel is screw cut for a silencer so easy to get the shroud cut down at the muzzle end to fit a silencer to keep length down,xtx will do this for a tenner plus return postage
    You dont need to do this to fit a silencer as there is a thread on the end of the shroud but it makes the rifle very long with additional silencer on the end
    buy one and enjoy it:)
