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.

Bushnell Legend 5-15x40 AO mil dot

    I really like these scopes.

    Granted, you can get better low light performance from one or two options within a similar price bracket.

    Some people comment on the slightly thicker ret and mil dots but I consider them a plus, especially if using a DIY DV rig. The ret really stands out, unlike some others (Hawke's half mil dot, for example) which is a b****r to see by comparison. There's also the simple point that if we're talking bunny size targets at air rifle ranges the ret thickness matters not one jot.

    Personally I think that, as a package, they are pretty tough to beat overall.

    Anyhoo, much as I am a massive fan, having seriously rationalised my air rifles from well into double figures down to 5 (soon to be 4 :eek: ) I find myself with two Bushnell Legend 5-15x40 scopes sitting in their boxes, all forlorn, and unlikely to ever see the light of day again :(

    Now, a mate of mine (yes, I do have one :rolleyes: ) has asked for one which I am dropping off for him on my way home tonight as a thanks for a lot of help he has given me this last few months.

    That leaves one left, and someone on here has already asked for first dibs, however, I've seen people claiming all sorts of high (and suspiciously low) prices for these.

    What are they realistically going for these days ?

    I will put some pictures up later but condition is close to mint I think - to be confirmed later - with perhaps one rub mark on part of the tube. Absolutely no crimping or mount marks and lenses are pristine and unmarked.

    Thoughts appreciated.

    Thanks for looking :)

    They are, aren't they ?

    To be honest I'm in two minds here - on the one hand I have no use for it right now, but...

    :rolleyes:

    I've gone with Nikon Prostaff BDC and Bushnell Legend Ultra HD on those air rifles I have left.

    The ret on the Bushnell Legend Ultra HD 4.5-14x44 is much finer and the mil dots appear a little closer together as well :)

    Still though...

    As per above, the ret is much, much finer on the HD and the mil dots appear slightly closer together.

    In terms of clarity, brightness, colour and whatnot, the HD is pretty blimmin amazing.

    Up at Stuart's range a couple of weeks ago a Prostaff EFR user had a play with a couple of my guns that each had a Bushnell Legend 1.75-5x32 Ultra HD on board and he was blown away with how bright and vivid they were. Coming from a (larger) Prostaff user that's pretty high praise...

    It's not an entirely fair comparison between a x40 and a x44 but the 4.5-14x44 Ultra HD is IMHO much, much better.

    Scopes are very subjective though, so your mileage may vary...

    It was the clarity and brightness I was referring too,I think I may be on the lookout for a 4.5-14x44 mildot version

    Already got scopes for them:

    Prostaff on the .22LR
    Bushnell Legend Ultra HD 4.5-14x44 on the .223 (for now)
    Nikon Monarch on the .270 (for now)

    Unlike the traditionalist fixed mag European scope approach I also have an interest in long range shooting as well as stalking so I'm sticking with what I know I can play around with for the time being until I figure out just how much time I will be spending wrapped around the guns. Once I ascertain that point I will gear up accordingly. Seems silly buying into something that, personally, I would find limiting for at least some of my shooting. I'm not arguing the case for 'better' or otherwise, just that I want to play around with vertical adjustment and multiple aim points for a while to see how far I can push things :)

    I'm guessing I'll regret selling it by the time I've counted the cash...

    :rolleyes:
