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.

  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.

    Gentlemen... being a TRUE Yorkshireman and having VERY short arms and abyss deep pockets... I decided to bite the bullet and purchase from a well known auction site (Evilbuy).. one of these Holographic Reflex Red/Green dot, multi reticule pistol sights.. for my little CP1...

    After selling 2 organs and offering to donate my brain to medical research (that got me the extra £1.00).. I managed to come up with the Princely sum of £21.00 to pay for said sights...

    Upon receiving an e-mail (written in BEST Chinglish).. I was told that the sight would be arriving on Friday.....

    HA.... its TUESDAY... what service!!!!!! This MUST be a QUALITY item......

    So being the giddy kipper I was... and getting over the pain from my organ donation to fund said sights.. I whacked it on the CP1... gassed the little beauty up.

    20200721_142444.jpg

    ..... and pumped a WHOLE magazine through her... using the "factory set" sights into the target/pellet trap some 11 yards away...... Hmmm.. low by 2" and right by 1/2"....

    Adjusting the "not clickable 1 MOA per click adjustment screws"... I pumped yet ANOTHER 7 shots through the CP1..... DOH... I needed one more 1/2 turn up and a allen key flat left....
    I tentatively loaded up the magazine yet again....

    Deep inhalation as I rested the air tube on the fluffy pink and pale green towels, pointed out of the bathroom window... and promptly pumped the target "full of lead"...

    20200721_141923.jpg

    Having NEVER used this type of sight before.. and having ONLY JUST FIT IT..... I am as chuffed as a "tramp finding a bag of chips" with the result....

    Only niggle I have ... (and it is ONLY a niggle...).. as the carbon fibre moderator I made is so light (weighing in at a modest 61 grams) .. I am actually getting a hint of muzzle flip!!!!!! .. so an aluminium moderator is on the cards...

    20200721_141532.jpg

    I have to say Gentlemen... It may not be a HawNikoSwarowskiAirPanamax.. scope....

    But bloody hell.. its ideal for back yard plinking...

    I agree with you mate, and mine was less than a tenner a couple of years ago - came on the slow boat so it was only one of my three brain cells donated for research.

    I have the opposite problem, my mod is a little heavy. It is off a BSA Ultra that I added baffles too as it was empty when I opened it apart from 2 springs and a plastic washer. I do have a @bl4de unit but I already swap it between rifles.

    Nice 1 Hal.
    I have one very similar on my PP800 and it is great for the money.

    In fact it is miles better than yours as I only paid 13 quid for it.......:p that's 8 quid better which equals a few bags of chips round 'ere.

    Heyup Willo.. the mods I made are M10 x 1.25mm screw onto the barrel mods... both in carbon fibre and one at 22mm diameter (slimline) and the other at 30mm..
    An ally bodied one will be about 85-95grams when done...

    With regards to the Ultra mod (and no doubt with a "chod in a p!$$ pot fitting" adapter), it will make it a bit heavier....

    In my opinion its best to have a dedicated unit for the CP that "balances" it out... (I am on with it...):thumb::thumb:
