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.

    I'm liking that bolt handle.
    Did it have to be modified to fit ?

    Blue BSA, as far as I know it’s the standard Ultra SE barrel (.177), screwcut version. Very accurate barrels but you already knew that! ;-)

    The bolt handle is the biggest single improvement I made. Tranforms the feel and handling. Very slick in use compared to the standard or oversize bolas type.

    It came off my mates 700, he changed it as the extractor cam wore out.

    Nice work - love the bolt handle / all the work into creating it :)

    Looks good with the iron sights too.. reminds me a bit of a Delisle carbine.

    How was the butt pad to fit? Looks good and I'd like an adjustable one myself, although I suspect fitting it well would be a bit of a pig..

    Yes your bang on there, bet they would get more interest in there items than the rubbish they churn out at the mo.

    I'm not a BSA hater before anyone jumps on me, I've had 2 regged ultra's single shot, 2 scorpions and a R10 which XTX sorted for me. It was tench regged and had a ultra barrel because I wanted a short compact multi shot via a bolt. The year after the ultra SE came out, I should of waited :smash: :confused:

    It looks right. I can't say there is anything wrong with the BSA range of PCP's. But there seems to be something 'missing' in their approach.

    I think the problem isn't with the ultra or scorpion models but the others, r10 still don't have decent regs, the bullpup they brought out is way too much money

    I just feel there bringing new models of current guns out but with a twist or new stock, or shroud etc. Daystate got hammered for this years ago but if people buy them there must be a market for them. BSA are missing a trick or two and if they did bring something new out it has to be better quality then there current efforts people would say that is interesting and I'm sure they would sell.

    Just look at the market leader so to speak at the mo, FX. There pushing things and yes things go wrong but there moving in the right direction and so is Air Arms with there new regged models then compare that to BSA which seem to update a current model. It's a crying shame because I think BSA is getting left behind :(

    Your set is is sweet though and I bet it shoots great :thumb:

    I have no complaints with the R10. But I am waiting for something to need fixing sooner rather than later.

    Air Arms did have problems with the initial regulated Ultimate Sporters. That was the gun I was waiting for but couldn't wait any longer so purchased the R10.

    The Air Arms PCP is logical and solid. As I have said several times here for me it is the lack of stock options where I think Air Arms miss out. Especially considering the stocks are for the most part interchangeable.

    I don't know. This forum has opened up options to me. But the state of the British manufacturers leaves me a bit cold. Some days I wonder about buying X or Y. And then others day think I will just get the R10 tuned and stop there. I do have plans for a second rifle of some nature for shooting in the house (advantage of being a bungalow dweller).

    We shall see.
