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.

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.

    dont own a scorpion, but have a tactical ultra. its a great rifle, and i think it would complement the r10, but my choice would be .177 (we prefer the cal)

    Was looking at BSA scorpion Tac as a possible choice for when i wanted to go PCP, was going for the new multi-shot varient S.E ? im not sure what it was called. i picked it up a shouldered it and it felt nice. was'nt too sure on the tactical stock though after picking up my firends Weihrauch Hw97kt with its tactical stock, the BSA's did'nt seem to have the same quality. but then again mate thats just my opinion on the stock. the gun it's self seems just fine.

    I had a t10 tactical scorpion in .177 and it was an extremely good gun, very accurate, very reliable and light enough to lug about :)

    personally, i wouldnt bother mate - theres nowt in the ultra and scorpion - except for longer barrel and air cylinder, so increased shotcount - accuracy the same. save up a bit more and get the r10

    Steve the R10 will look better when the shroud is shortened by xtx and i fit what will be known as big betty silencer(custom made by a mate of welsh willy)
    Will then get the shroud and big betty dipped to match the camo stock :)

    I've got a scorpion tactical stock in 177. Great accurate rifle out of the box. Now it has an even better shot count thanks to my tench reg I had fitted. Stock is very durable and is great for when the weather is too bad for my custom r10.:rolleyes:
