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.

    Has anyone tried a scope with chevron type reticle in their 12 fpe gun?

    Like this:

    If so, how does it work for different ranges?

    The chevron at the top is very much like the German scopes with just a post. They are used for boar and work very well as the quarry is at close range and fast aiming in the general area with a large calibre rifle. I've used them on C/F rifles but can not get on with it. Due the point I find it difficult to keep it on target, where as a cross I can. I'm not sure but I think a lot of the Russian night vision uses a chevron.

    This is probably calibre specific so that the aim points are set for a certain load at a fixed magnification. You might be able to use the aim points in a 12ftlb air rifle just as with any multi aim point scope but you would have to work out the ranges for each mark by shooting it. Presumably this is in a fixed power scope, if not it would be more complicated but you could probably get used to it, unfortunately the only way to know is to actually try it and if you've got to buy it then tou would probably be better off sticking to something which is intended for air rifle use.

    Yes, those aiming points are meant for 5.56 NATO round. I just thought they they might match the airgun trajectory at shorter ranges, that's why I asked if anyone had tried one of those. I was looking at this scope http://www.vectoroptics.com/Vector-Optics-Mustang-SCOC-02-Scope-Product.html which has adjustable magnification - could be great for hunting.

    I would say that it won't be all that good as there are several things which might cause problems:
    no parallax adjustment
    one piece WEAVER mount which looks as though it's not removeable - 30mm tube would need larger rings to fit
    1/2 minute adjustments
    the reticle is difficult to make out in the photo but looks to be very fine, can't see any windage markings
    Obviously the reticle marks will match the air rifle trajectory at certain ranges but you would have to shoot it to see and, of course, they would change if you altered the magnification.
