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.

BSA R10 Bull Barrel variations. I'm confused.

    I've been looking about on the web at BSA R10s as I'm in the market for an additional short hunting rifle. I like the look of the bull barrel model but really wanted something slightly shorter for ease of transportation etc. Weight is not an issue. The super 10 BBK are like hens teeth to find which would be an obvious alternative. However, I came across an R10 which had a bull barrel just slightly longer than the bottle. Is this a standard model or do you think it has been modified? I am unaware that a R10 BBK is available.
    Without getting the hacksaw out, what mods are available to an R10 BB to shorten the barrel but keeping in the BB or shrouded format? I have seen that people have fitted barrels from other rifles in the BSA range to R10s.

    Help please ladies and gents. Cheers in advance :up:

    The r10 with an ultra barrel fitted and the shroud cut down, is in my opinion a cracking bit of kit.

    Short, pointable, and very sexy.

    A lovely high shot count carbine, although the shot count will be lower with the shorter ultra barrel, but who can carry 100+ rabbits:)

    if you have the cash, XTX will do you proud!!

    like this, nice eh:)

    The first R10s were fitted with 12" Ultra barrels as standard.

    The second gun up from the bottom has an Ultra barrel fitted so you can see where it comes in relation to the buddy bottle. A Huub shroud can be fitted and normally there is about 140mm for baffles on the end of the barrel, to give you some idea of length. You can of course also get the barrel chortened and a shroud to fit,

    i've had my r10 modified and personally if you want it more compact I would just have the shroud shortened, its cheaper than having the barrel and shroud shortened and cosmetically it looks the same with just the shroud done. also it doesn't affect shot count. this pic of my r10 has been posted a few times but I will put it up again for you to see how a rifle looks with just the shroud shortened.the second pic is of the rifle with a huggett shround and silencer.
