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.

    Afternoon all. I have a .22 ultra fitted with a mk1 scorpion air res and a mwss silencer. Been looking at the option of a Huub shroud as really like the look of them and it seems to make the barrel look better. Now I cant seem to find any reviews online about ultras fitted with a Huub sroud can find plenty on the r10 mind. so are they any good? am I just looking at it for the sake of its looks or will it preform any better than what I currently have? has anybody got one fitted that has done any tests over it an just a mod?

    Theirs a few members on here with the huub shroud, most are saying it's just as good as a dedicated silencer:)

    so apart from the looks then im not really going to gain anything. I have emailed Darrin and reading between the lines it was kind of what he was saying.

    You get a shorter gun. The shroud has good volume around the barrel so it can be made some 2" shorter than a good silencer while still being quiet.You could even go for a 425mm airtube and have shroud that matches the length of the tube if you want to utilize the gun dimensions to max. IIRC 12" barrel + 200mm silencer/shroud is a good match for 425mm tube.

    Is that the cylinder I sold you, how's it going with it, I would go with the huub shroud, it will look brilliant with the longer cylinder.

    On the huub you can play with the internals which is never a bad thing:)

    And with an XTX gauge on the end of the cylinder it will look well smart!!!!

    Mine has a hw mod on it but makes it a little long for my liking. It's really quiet but wanting a shroud but not sure if it would have the same effect. Been looking for Db readings but can't find anything about them.

    Send me a shroud for 15" BSA barrel and I can do a 12 fpe frequency band based analysis versus a stock HW silencer in a .177 gun :) Measurements made with just dB level tell you very little of the actual noise that comes out of the gun.

    This means I have to buy one ;)
    Ahh I didn't know this. Tried taking readings with my phone just doesn't quite work. Get the same readings with and without the silencer

    That's exactly the thing and then people tell you that silencer x is y decibels more silent than silencer z. All BS with simple dB meters. If you are serious about it you need to measure by frequency bands and then compare. In general silencers that make more noise in higher frequency band tend to sound more quiet, at least different from normal gun fire. There are tricks for moving that noise up and down in the frequency range so personally I'd give rat's ass to what people say is more quiet or loud. The thing is whether you want it quite at human hearing range or quarry hearing range. Even with human hearing range comes the question, should it sound like miniscule gun shot or something completely different?

    Yes that makes perfect sense I'd read something on here about a guys dog hating the noise of a air rifle. Quiet to us doesn't mean the same to a rat or rabbit. I wonder if they take that into the equation when they are made from factory or just made to sound quiet to us

    Now this is interesting,

    A mate of mine uses a silencer on his ultra that's only 100mm x 28mm made by UK neil, it sounds louder than say an hw or a twink, but has absolutely no problems hunting with it.
