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.

    They lock onto the sling stud usually..
    Two pins go into the stud and you turn the small wheel to tighten it up..

    I've got one, but not for shooting with its for resting the gun on the ground when I'm getting up of the box seat, and for when I'm having a cupper. after saying this, they do the job. And its not as if your using a assault rifle.

    Mine is a Zeadio 6-9 inch, cost a little bit more than these but excellent quality considering the price. I think I paid about £16 about a year ago.

    Of course it's alright until it's not because a weld fails / something fatigues and shears and drops your gun in the dirt. Personally I'd much rather spend a bit more on a used Harris..

    Very good for the money, but I would never attach a sling to it.

    Well the thing is that not everybody can afford an expensive bipod after buying the rifle and may be saving up for better...

    Thanks to @darklord & @Reevo17 for giving the members an honest hands on opinion of a budget bipod :up:
    Thats what this forum should be about, finding the good deals, avoiding the garbage and not being snobbish about other members choice of equipment when some can't spend what you spend.

    Agreed bud

    Had mine 18months still as new after hard use.

    Not much can go wrong from a £10 one. Why spend £70 is beyond me.

    Seen those in the flesh, amazing bits of kit but I’d rather buy another rifle than spend it on a bipod ;)

    Ironically, I’m waiting for you to sort me out with one of those fancy lightweight tubes!!

    Now stop fantasising about carbon Atlas bipods and do some work man! ;)

    On a side note I also have a Zeadadodido thing on the R10.
    It works fine and doesn’t look like any welds are going to fail anytime soon but the crappy rubber strips that are supposed to protect the stock from the foot are as much use as a chocolate fire guard!

    I don’t like that much- far too much in terms of weight and leverage on such small pins.
    Atlas knockoff and a well fixed rail much better IMO.
