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.

    '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.

  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.

    Apart from the obvious sound issues are there any other major pros / cons between the 2? Is the silencer on the VC actually any good or would it be better to add an after market to either?

    The vc will be a lot quieter than the shrouded version, if you like the shrouded look you can get a huub shroud which will perform as good as a mod!

    and will keep the length down also:)

    Got both, the shroud is just cosmetic does not do much as a silencer, I changed mine for a Huub and now it's very quiet. The VC version is very quiet out of the box.

    Thanks all for the replies / advice. I do not intend to hunt but just want to keep things quiet for the ( nosey ) neighbours plus, the quieter the gun is then the more my missus will take an active interest in 'having a go'. Now the latter may not be everybody's cup of tea but the more interest she has then the more I can get away with ( if you know what I mean ) . :)

    An argos book for a back stop will keep the noise of your activities to a minimum:)

    I had the shrouded version plus the VC mod. Sold the VC and put a Twink mk2 on after shortening the shroud. The VC does the job but I don't think it's quite as good as the Twink.

    Not that the bunnies minded which I used. The Twink looks better too with the shroud.

    It is not that end of the noise spectrum that is the issue!! It is the firing end. ( That said, I knew that Argos books would eventually come back into fashion for something.

    The VC is more than acceptable ~ I've got other moderators and also like the HW and Swift. (Not much in it really).

    Happy plinking in the garden or wherever ! :up:

    Lead hitting metal can be just as annoying as pcp with no silencer;)

    I had my barrel shortened and added a a Swift Stubby and its very quiet. I didn't think much of the VC, even after adding the green scourers. I have heard that they are better on some rifles than others.

    Thanks
