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. No longer allowed 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- We now do not allow political and religion threads anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section) unless Airgun related and they must be put in the Airgun related politics section..

    Staff will not move posts for you if you put it in the wrong section – it will simply be deleted. You will then have to type it all out again and put it in the right place, so heed this warning.

    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.

    Had, our first batch of these today, they come in a nice hard case with a good thick eggshell foam inside, upon opening the case you are greeted by a lovely ambidextrous walnut thumbhole stock, the first noticeable difference to the standard R10, is that the buddy bottle has increased in size from 200cc to a longer 280cc and BSA quote that the it increases shot count over the standard R10 model in 177 up from 190-250 shots and the 22 from 250-340 shots, these I will confirm later, once I have had chance to shoot a full string. So how does it feel, well surprisingly, very good, you would think the bigger bottle would be nose heavy, not at all. So I grabbed a Discovery scope, put it on and three shots and had a good zero at 25m. So Is it worth the extra money over the standard R10. Yes I think it is for the ambidextrous stock, the extra shot count (to be confirmed) and the way it feels. So did the customer, that bought one 10 minutes after we had opened the delivery. :thumb:

    I think BSA's method of working out shot count is flawed, 190 shots with a R10, yeah, right, course it does... :facepalm:

    I haven't actually counted yet but I'd say mine is doing more like 130-140. Nowhere near the claimed 190 which is frustrating

    I think you are not far of the mark there. I have never had one of mine do near 190 so not sure how BSA test them to get that figure, must be on a full moon. :D

    Yes BSA’s shot counts are quite adventurous to say the least, I’ve had several Ultras and R10’s and all whilst respectable.. but not the figures BSA quote. @thumbhole i handled a R10th today as well! It was a shame that the walnut on this one was very bland but all in all a nice rifle. I did however feel the extra weight of the bigger bottle I’m comparison to my R10’s but I have got weak arms :p

    Neither was I from the pictures I had seen in the comics, but feels ok and seems a decent quality, but have to say would have been nicer in walnut. :thumb:

    I think they count a 'shot' as a pellet leaving the barrel, not the useable shot we do so they can get away with their claimed figures. Ive had a 280 bottle on for a while now and a few mods and kinda like the old girl now.

    I think the R10 looks more impressive. But I would be looking at the US too for that money.

    Are they still having problems with the regulators in the US's does anybody know?
