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.

    want some verdicts on the above scopes, currently have a hawke sport hd and a nikko mountmaster, not great but are enough scope for me at present, how does everyone rate the JSR gear as its in a similar price range? particularly the "target" style models?

    I use a 6x24-50 ir mil dot scope for hunting and hft, use full mag for zeroing then turn it down to 10x for general use, like it for what I do, good depth of field for a cheap scope and if it goes belly up will buy another, leapers are the same scopes with a different name

    Never had the more expensive models but I've had a few of the smaller scopes, 3-9x40 sort of thing, & I found them very good, certainly they don't seem built down to a price.

    The glass is better than the nikko, and maybe better than the hawkes.

    I'd say I'd have a jsr over a sport hd personally but after that I'm not sure the price would be competitive with the panorama

    I have a Hawke, a BSA, a Nikko, a Richter, a AGS and a JSR Guntuff, all what you would call budget scopes, of them all the JSR gets my vote, it was the most expensive of the bunch, but came with mounts, flip up end caps and a sun shade, and the main tube is a one piece, etched glass illuminated ret, it is on a springer and holds its zero, would not hesitate to buy another, good value and well made. Atb, Bob. PS. The worst one of that bunch, is the BSA, it just wont hold zero. The rest are decent scopes for the money. If the rest of the JSR range of scopes are as good as the one I have, you should have no problems.

    Note. Not all of the JSR scopes are listed on their web site, the one I purchased, was via their Fleebay shop, but not listed on their web site, so may be worth a look there. Bob.

    I'm using a mil-dot Leapers 3-9x40 AO IR on my pcp at the moment and can't fault it. As mentioned above they're the same scope as a JSR and come with caps and quality sunshade. They can be focused right down to around 5 yards if necessay. I had a Hawke Nite-Eye on the gun before and loved it but now using NV a lot, the 6-24x50 scope wouldn't come down on the magnification enough for a wide enough field of view.

    The optics are very clear and give good light gathering until nearly dark, even with the sunshade always in place. Plus, the body of the scope is long enough to accommodate a couple of extra mounts for NV gear....:up:

    Had a 3-9x50 JSR not long back on a Rapid I built.

    I preferred the scope to some really expensive scopes Ive used, don't know about about the rest of the 30mm versions because this one had a 25mm tube but it wasn't heavy and suited the Rapid to the ground, thin crosshairs, and smooth px and zoom rings, plus IR so you cant knock them one bit for what they cost they are probably the best value scopes available.

    Are they better than a Hawke, well for one it didn't have any crossthreads or poi changes through the mag so I would say it was better than the hawkes Ive owned.

    Is this true?
    Because the 2 leapers scopes I had, were not impressing, the tunnel like field of view and glass being the reasons.

    But the jsr had a average field of view and considerably better glass.
