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.

  6. 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.

    Oooo ... I might be getting one of those.

    Went to a gun shop and tried one out today as it happens; very good rifle as I understand, but I don't have any knowledge of PCP rifles.

    (By the way, I'm talking about the K version)

    It looks great, shoots well and yes, the build quality is the usual BSA goodness.

    The 'Bolas' bolt is very nice too.

    They're very good for the money.

    what are you going for 177 or 22? Also is the rifle version single or multishot? Or can it possibly be used both? I think the only drawback as far as I'm aware is the lack of a pressure gage, at least the one I saw recently didn't have one.... Do you think the K version will be a bit short of air in 177? That Bolas Bolt looks nice, what's it like to use?

    hi steff, the scorpion is a lovely rifle,
    good build quality,accurate and quiet as a mouse with a
    good silencer, go for the carbine in .177 you still get 60
    good shots from it, also you can get it from bsa with a walnut
    stock, the bolt is very smoothe and positive in operation.
    you cant convert the single shot to multi, but as you know
    there is a multi shot version available, hope this helps

    (GET A .177);):D

    Thanks Rockabilly

    You are definately a 177 man! I've got an AAs410 in 177 /great gun/would you say the BSA is as good? or better? was thinking of 22 for a bit of diversity and shot capacity but will probably go with 177 again. Quick question, with the multishot, does the mag slot in from the left or the right hand side? I find with the 410 I cant use a scope wheel (on the left) because of interference.

    When I have the money, I'll get mine in .177 because all I have is .22 at the moment and I want a change, plus to be honest I believe that .177 is better.

    I think they only come in single shot, but they're working on a multi shot version as I speak so you might want to wait for that if you want that option.

    They don't have a pressure gauge on them but your styrrup pump or air cylinder will, so that isn't a problem really.

    The bolt is really nice, fits into the hand well and it feels great. It makes the rifle easier to cock too so it's functional as well.

    With the carbine you get about 50 shots in .177 from a single charge so that's not too bad all things considered.

    Sorry the reply took a while, and good luck if you decide to get one.

    James.

    I have the scorpion 22 with tactical stock it is nice and accurate and very comfy to use the mag works well and for the money i would say its the best hunting gun out there.
    The stock was not going to be available in the tactical but bsa decided they would give it a go and i think it is the best choice as it is strong and less likeley to get marked.
