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 spent a few weeks over the summer last year refurbishing a very old and worn looking AA S400 classic (pre anti tamper) which I bought from my housemate for the princely sum of £200

    I completely redid the stock in a deeper stain of walnut. I replaced all the seals and oiled it down. All moving parts where oiled. I had it tuned by a friends friend who got it consistently firing at 11.4 - 11.6fps at 180bar with Wasps. I then replaced the scope. The original was a rather dented Simmons one. No zoom, no focus, no moving parts. I wanted something abit better but was on a budget so went for a cheap smk scope. I fitted it but no matter what I couldn't zero it. Ended up putting it to the back of a cupboard and when I moved out that's where it stayed. The back of a new cupboard. I reverted to using my BSA meteor mk7. Absolute beast of a springer.

    Anyways I recently got my s400 out of temporary retirement and was determined to renew my love for it. I started trying to zero the scope. Ended up putting a huge amount of shim under the back only for it to still be about a foot short at 25 yards. Frustrated I gave up again.

    Well last night I had a splurge and bought from two members here an Edgar's 9-13 bipod and a Hawke Sport HD 3-9 x 50 AO Mil Dot iR Scope. I also got a metal pellet catcher for my paper targets, a blue pen for refreshing the blue on my barrel, some pellet lube, some gun oil, some paper targets, a self resetting spinning target and several tins of pellets. This weekend my s400 will be replacing my gf, and all attention will be lavished upon it until I love it once again.

    Next weekend I will have to do the same but for my gf so that she will once again love me.

    Does anyone know if I'll need to get raised mounts for the Hawke Sport HD 3-9 x 50 AO Mil Dot iR Scope to sit nicely, and whether a Rowan a multishot adapter will fit underneath?

    Thanks

    You may get away with medium mounts , I have 3-9 x 40 on mine with med mounts and mag clears scope and there's enough room under objective lens for a x 50 i think ? Someone else may have the set up you have and I kno the rowan conversion is smaller than the aa mag .

    Well my springer as an x50 and I had to cut a small piece off the lens cap to make it fit. Hopefully it goes on ok first time otherwise it'll be a quick trip down the fishing tackle shop to get some higher mounts.

    Once everything is fitted I'll be putting so many pics up it may crash the website lol.

    I would get jsb's but it's the cost. I can get the wasps for under a fiver a tin where as jsb is closer to a tenner. I have a small tin with about 100 jsb's in that I got given, but they only get used on special occasions.

    Have Wasps improved since they initially got worse then? Lots of people seem to not want to give the new Wasps the time of day.
