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.

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 bought mine a few weeks ago, have a look at my post in Gun Gallery, and this review is only based on a few weeks use but I can say that I have really enjoyed the experience.

    The good points, very good shot grouping at any distance your likely to be shooting at, it's comparitively light as you'd expect from a carbine and comes to the shoulder very nicely and is very pointable. Easy to refill and it does NOT seem to matter whether you have cocked the Ultra or not.
    I do cock it but it really isn't necessary as far as I an tell as I've filled it both ways with no differences. The safety is really in a very handy place and no faffing about with it ike on an HW80 if you know what I mean, cocking the gun is so simple and decocking it is simple to once you've tried it a couple of times. Nice enough woodwork for the price. 1/2" UNF silencer thread. 2 stage adjustable trigger which is nice and smooth.

    Bad points, as I've stated elsewhere the standard silencer is crap, really pointless and does very little in sound suppression, you will need to change it, get the new Weihrauch silencer, I did and it makes noise virtually inaudible to our ears, (probably still a chuffing great boom to someone like Mr Rabbit anyway). There is no pressure gauge fitted so you never really kow what pressure you've got in the cylinder and need to refill after 30-40 shots just to keep it topped up. Some will not like the loading system and maybe some won't like the fact safety catch is manual not auto. I have chrono'd it and acheived 800 fps so I can't complain about that.

    The not so good or not so bad points, the loading system is a like it or hate it thingy. I at first didn't think much to it but after using it for a short while you get used to it. Otherwise I feel there is a lack of excitement when shooting it, I'm not saying it's lousy, not at all. It just seems to lack something and after using a co2 rifle as well I think it's the lack of recoil you don't get with a pcp. Reckon that's the same no matter what pcp you have. I found Crosman Powapells are hard to get in the breech for some reason so I won't use them now.

    Overall it is a very nice carbine, very accurate and feels solid too. Consider you can find these on offer around £260 if you search for them, it's a bargain pcp and well worth the money.

    Hope you enjoyed the read and please leave your comments, rude or otherwise :D

    Quite simply, get one.

    the cocking and loading system is good as you can load the pellet and then when you are ready to shoot, cock it and go.

    i have just bought on as my first pcp, the tactical.22 single shot version. and i have found it very easy to use, found loading quite easy when you get used to it. it is incredibly accurate and has plenty of power. build quality is good and the rifle feels nice and solid. the only drawback is the low shot count per fill.
