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 Se - Long Term Review

    I realised I had not done a review of my R10? so as I've had it a while now, I thought it would be a good time to do one....looking back at my ownership so far.

    Bought mine new from Countryways, usual story, I only went in for some pellets! :facepalm:
    Mines a Walnut stocked, .177 version.

    BSA R10 reg 177 mar 201911.jpg

    The only problems I've had with mine was a loose cocking arm bolt, just needed tightening, and the trigger stopped working after a few months, which was just the trigger adjustment screw, so both easy fixes and just seemed to happen as the gun "bedded in" with use.

    I really like the stock on these and mine was very dry when I got it, but after a few months and a few coats of CCL oil, the stock is now a nice dark walnut colour and the grain is showing up a bit more.

    The chequering is nicely defined and suits the gun well IMHO, I also like the Rosewood capping at the base of the pistol grip, again, a nice little touch.

    Mod / Shroud, these can be altered, shroud removed, etc, but I've not messed with these as I like the look of the full shroud.

    The adjustable butt pad is also a nice feature, it not only adjust up and down by the angle can be adjusted too.

    The gun has a nice balance (for me) and comes up to the shoulder well and is not too heavy. Some may complain about the front being a bit heavy (with the bottle) but I don't notice it.

    The trigger on mine is nice and light, possible too light initially, hence the trigger prob after a few months, but since it was adjusted its been fine. It has the match type fully adjustable trigger blade. I've not altered mine, but the option is there for those who want it.

    Safety, The side safety works well, I personally prefer a safety that is not on the trigger or near the trigger, and this one is a little lever on the LHS of the stock and give a nice little click when operated.

    Magazines, I like the fact they are different colour for each cal, and I like the numbering so you know how many shots are left, which is a nice little touch. I've had no probs with accuracy or double loading or pellets catching, it all seems to work fine.

    Shot count, I've still not done a full chrono string on mine, but I get about 120 to 130 shots before the power drops. I know that with tuning, eg: JB, etc the shot count, accuracy and consistency can all be improved. For the moment mine is ok as standard.

    Pellets, its the usual story, mine likes the old favourites, AADF, H&N FTT's, and Superdomes.

    Accuracy, I'm no sniper, but for me its as accurate as all my other guns. 5p ish groups at 35m.
    Actually now I look at that pc, I not sure if those coins are 1p's or 2p's but not 5's.... :D

    BSA R10 groups at 35m at petes.jpg

    Have I done any work to the gun or customised it? Yes, a little bit, just got a nice bottle cover and put some camo tape on the mod, to avoid scratches.
    I have also bought a nice 3D printed single shot loader as I like the option of single shot as well as mag fed.

    BSA R10 SE wiv camo and spare mags5.jpg

    Lastly, I put a nice Hawke Airmax 40mm scope on her which suits her fine, not too big and not too small.

    The Regulator, the big one? Have I had any probs with the regulator? No.
    Now I know that a lot has been said and written about the BSA regs, mostly negative, and mostly by people who have far more technical knowledge than me. So I am certainly not going to argue with the majority view or collective wisdom. I can only report my own personal experience, and that is to say that this particular gun has performed without issue as far as the reg is concerned. I know that one day it may all go a bit t*ts up, but until then, I'll stick with the standard reg.

    So am I still happy with the R10, yes, its a great looking gun, a very capable gun and I like it.

    Thanks for the Review. Looking forward to getting mine in the coming weeks when stock starts hitting The Airgun Centre a bit more Frequently. Love a good zeroing in session on a new rifle/scope combo :up:

    Nice write up buddy, love mine and the only issue I had was..... yup the reg

    @Blackmax stripped the reg, cleaned it and replaced a few o rings and she’s good to go.

    I want another one. It doesn't fit into my plans at all either as a 'club gun' (prob a Goldstar now) or the 'down the hall gun' (the Lord only knows and I think He has given up on me sorting that out), and it most definitely is not the adult sized springer I am looking for. But I do so like them. One of these with a carbon bottle........

    Exactly what I have on order, but with the Black pepper Laminate. All the R10TH versions are gun porn IMO, this image should have a NSFW tag

    That's why I want to change the bottle. It spoils the look of the gun for me. I have a carbine and it would be nice to have a rifle. I just wish BSA would think about pic rail for the fore end. Since I have been visiting this site the number of times I have read something like, 'Scratch near the front sling stud because of fitting bi-pod....' is scary.

    If you want a bipod, Dr Bob do a clamp to connect bipod to buddy bottle rather then the studs, which by all accounts infringed the Manometer.

    there are 3d printed ones too. I used a picatinny rail from the bay and a utg bipod from .
    I used a piece of neoprene as a cushion between the stock and rail fwiw

    Thanks for that. I hadn't give that a thought at all. I can't even remember if I have seen that arrangement before. I suppose this will be for steel bottles not carbon? Not that that is an issue as bipod fitting comes before bottle fitting. And I wouldn't like my gauge covered. The only other thing I can think of, and it isn't a show stopper either, is it would probably make fitting a Huub shroud difficult. But the latter isn't essential at all. Thanks again.
