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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    To clear this text box, click on the 'X' in the top right-hand corner.

    I was also in AC guns a week or so ago, I'm from Hastings as well Gasman, well technically I'm St Leonards, I really like the Sniper, feels great tucked into the shoulder, Ray had a De-Ac Bren gun as well and as my old man was the 2nd man on a Bren gun team for awhile during the war I just had to stretch out on the floor of the shop and give it it a try, that felt great tucked into my shoulder as well :D

    What i did find funny about the sniper is that the adjustable cheek peice is finished in fake wood, a modern plastic and metal gun and they stick a fake wood finish on the cheek peice, first thing I would do is spray it black.

    The Evanix mechanism is great. Did you get to see his ultimate Evanix? The one he can't sell?

    I think Ray sold all of the Rainstorms he took up to Kibworth recently so he probably needs some more stock.

    One of the local lads got the X2 in .45. It was a bit low on power making only about 140 fpe and the valve stem snapped off after only few hundred shots. My .357 Blizzard is doing 125 fpe so the .45 X2 is not a very good performer. The trigger is also awful as it comes from the factory, you can make it decent though with some work. And did I mention the sloppy build quality, the transfer port in mine was drilled 0.6mm off blocking a great deal of air flow :( You can make these nice guns but as they come from the factory I wouldn't call then good ones.

    Ah the Pre Simon Atkins model then??

    The shot power in my gun is consistent over the first 100 or so shots (still counting down to refill point)! My Webley Venom Sidewinder is also very consistent (made by the same company).

    Big caliber guns come from factory with hammer spring wound up too tight in order to achieve the advertised power. The power usually starts to drop after shot 1. At 12 fpe and with smallbores things are a bit different. Does anyone in UK make depingers for these guns? I made a mistake of firing a shot without ear protection and my ears are still ringing.

    Ah mine is not wound to the extreme!

    Probably accounts for the noise of the (sledge) hammer action!
