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 can't comment myself but a friend of mine has had both to play with and absolutely hated the trigger on the coyote, said it was accurate enough to hunt with but aren't nearly all PCP's these days.
    The RM8 however he told me was a very, very nice gun in every aspect and said he would highly recommend it to any one.

    Thanks....it seems to be a Marmite gun but liked by the all the folk who own them. I'm surrounded by fields with a large garden and this year the song birds have been swamped by Magpies and Crows they just need thinning out by half or so, a few weeks back the Magpies killed a whole nest of baby Robins so it comes home to you that there is a problem.
    The Walther is more than up to the job.

    Coincidentally I've posted a thred this evening asking for advice on a pcp. I'm looking a tother models as most of these are too heavy for my needs and limitations. If anyone wants to pop over and advice on my options, I'd be grateful. Nice to ee the coyote getting good reviews as I'm looking at the phox which is a carbine synthetic stock brother to it.

    2015 follow up

    Hi there folks having just read this 2015 post by cloverleaf and i thought it might just fit with a suggestion i made about a gun review data base. How many of you who bought a Walther RM8 or Gamo coyote lets say more than 6 months ago still have them and what are there thoughts of them.

    i for one have an RM8 in.22 i have had it for nearly 2 years now and still as happy now with it as i was then, even though 6 months ago i got an AA S510 in .177 which i love as well now both are Keepers.

    How do i make one of those live tally counters on hear can any one help please.

    Thank's Graham.

    At the moment my preferred is the coyote/phox kit, then Rm8, followed by a smk pr900w.
    Or maybe a springer for my lad I'm still undecided!

    Still have and use my Coyote even though i also have an R10 and a pistol, the Coyote lacks a little refinement, but with a little work it can be a really nice accurate gun.

    Bought RM8 a few weeks ago. New/black. Love the look of it. (Was looking at a s/h R10). First rifle for 50 yrs ! Feels (very?) heavy to me. (Age 65). Still waiting to shoot it/be approved by club ! Did drill the stock for studs. Plenty of thickness. Think I will be happy with it

    It's a bit like a Rapid had a fling with a Coyote and this was the result.
    :p

    Watched a lady at our club last week put pellet on pellet with a Coyote on the 25m range, very impressive, spoke to her again last Monday and she's giving her Ultra to her daughter and keeping the Coyote as her main gun saying it's miles better than the Ultra!

    What are the differences between the phox & the coyote? I'm aware the phox is a full kit, pump bag & scope.

    Have you owned one? Currently own a Gamo Coyote
    Are / were you pleased with it? Very Pleased
    Do you think it is/was good value? I paid £240 2nd hand for it a year ago, I have only put around 2000 pellets through it but it has been without fault.
    How do you think it compares with more expensive gear?Once I found a pellet that it liked (jsb heavies .177) it turned into a very accurate rifle, it'll do under 5 pence groups at 40 yards, however it does lack the smoothness of a more expensive brand. I have done a simple mod to the trigger which has transformed what was a pretty crap affair and it really is a joy to shoot.

    Ultimately, did they live up to the hype? I bought the Coyote purely on the basis of its price and it was nearby! I do a lot of cf and shotgun hunting and subsequently spent an awful lot of money over the years on guns and equipment. One of the farms I shoot on asked if I could deal with some ferrals in the barns so I figured a cheap pcp should be purchased. Had I have actually given a toss about peoples opinions I probably wouldn't have bought it, but I like a challenge.
    A year down the line I can honestly say I wouldn't part with it, infact if someone was to offer me their HW100 to swap I'd seriously decline.

    The phox has a smaller air cylinder than the coyote so less shots and the synthetic stock is also slightly smaller. :)
