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.

    I'm seriously thinking of chopping in the AT44 Tactical for a brand new Ultra SE with Beech stock (.177). I love the Hatsan and it's accuracy is superb (I was consistently hitting a knock-down crow target at 73yds yesterday), it gives around 70 shots per charge and purely as a recreational target shooting rifle, it's hard to beat for the price. I've never taken it hunting (only because I don't have any perms!), but she's a heavy one and hauling it around the fields for a few hours is surely gonna be a chore. It also looks like a tactical assault rifle so I can imagine the calls to plod about a bloke in the fields with a machinegun!

    So, I've been looking at an Ultra SE today, fired a few pellets through it and generally liked it quite a lot and it looks the part too as I'm swaying away from the tactical image. The only concern I have is the relatively low shot count from the small cylinder. Ultimately, I'm wanting to go hunting so I don't imagine the shot count will be a major issue, but just wanted to know what others think of the Ultra?

    Here's mine. The good bits, light and easy to carry around, nice to hold and shoot with. Great accuracy with bis mags, nice trigger, lots can be done with them by the likes of Rat Works, value for money (?), not an ugly HW100.

    The bad bits. Build quality leaves quite a bit to be desired. I use my one a LOT but it has worn amazingly quickly (I got it in October) with blueing coming off and rust spots coming through despite regular oiling, ping when fired is pretty loud, low shot count and realistically your only going to get 25-30 good shots, can be difficult to cock (my bolt seems quite hard to pull to the rear).

    Cheers Jim, the only thing holding me back is that shiz shot count. Maybe I'll wait 'till I can afford an R10.

    If you like the ultra, why not get the scorpion? Identical gun but you'll get 65 shots from a full tank. Wish I'd gone for one now, mine ultra is the ebony edition so is a scorpion but with a tiny winy tank :-(

    I have an ultra purely as a ratting gun with an ns50 and I absolutely love it,I have an r10 for hunting with ultra barrel and huub shroud but just lately I've been taking the ultra hunting as well. lightweight,accurate and fun what more could you want and if you get a tench reg reasonable shot count too.
