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 Super10 Mags

    Hi Guys, I'm a relative newbie on the site, only the second time i'm posting, just wanted a little advice. I've got a BSA SuperTen BB in .22, which I absolutely adore, but I'm unable to source a spare mag for it.

    I've contacted a number of good shops, such as BAR and Uttings, as well as some of my local shops, no-one seems to know when they are going to be able to get them in, they are all back ordered, with no confirmed delivery date.

    Apparently, they are changing the design slightly, which is all good if it makes them more robust, however, even better if I could get my hands on one!

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks in advance

    Hi Guys, thanks for your help, did as MARTIN1 suggested & called John at BSA, he's making sure that the order I placed with Uttings is fulfilled and I will have the new redesigned mag shortly!

    I had already ordered it from Uttings, then got a call to say they were on backorder.....forever!

    John asked me who I had ordered from and said he'd supply them within a couple of days and asked me to call them to remind them to ensure I got one!

    Service

    I thought it was excellent service, he also admitted that it was all BSA's fault. Apparently the new improved mag uses CNC machined anodised aluminium internals, making them far more reliable, but more time consuming to make.

    This has a knock on effect in relation to making them for the guns to sell & to supply as spares to the dealer network.

    I can understand the requirement to purchase through the dealer network, I sell software to a reseller channel and the end user cannot buy direct from me. If they could, my partner network would give me the old two fingered salute!

    Success at last

    Just to thank everyone who helped out on the BSA question re: sourcing a new Mag for my BSA.

    Had the new mag delivered last Friday, much improved over the original, the inner mechanism is now all metal and is excellently engineered.

    Thanks again for your help, once I knew who to speak to, I had the new mag in my hand in 3 days.

    Sorted

    As to shooting more, gave it a test over the weekend, much to the annoyance of the local corvid population.

    So far, 1 crow and 1 magpie have lost their heads with the help of some RWS Superfields 5.52's, (which look like JSB's of some type), but work beautifully with both the gun & magazine!

    Shots were taken at between 20 &25 yards, free standing.

    Accuracy of the Superfields

    Yes, they are extremely accurate. I was using some Webley Lazerdomes prior to picking up the Superfields, which look very similar, ( think they're from the JSB family as well)

    The Superfields appear to impact slightly higher on the set zero, but seem to hit a lot harder, perhaps because they're 5.52's and very slightly lighter compared to the 5.51's of the Webley pellets.

    Both have been washed and lubed, but I think I've now found the right combination for my gun, will be picking up another couple of tins in the near future.
