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.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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.

    I dont like the Combro as I can see how it will fit onto my rifles easily without potentially getting shot all the time :)
    The Chrono F1 is a bit pricey so I saw this

    https://www.google.co.uk/search?saf....9.0....0...1c.1.45.serp..0.9.221.CMPuTnViRjM

    Now every mention of it says airsoft but nothing about air rifle.
    It covers the speed range of typical air rifles but I am curious why it only says airsoft or do technically air rifles come under airsoft as well seeing as they aren't real bullets?
    It looks like you can set the calibre and weight (in grams) of the projectile so I dont see why it wouldn't work.
    Anyone got one or used one?

    I don't know when I will next be up at Worcester air rifle club but if you go let me know and I'll show you how to set up a Combro without doing any damage to it. Probably the best value out there and a real doddle to use.

    I've not heard of anyone using the airsoft chronos although I have seen quite a few posts enquiring about them. The combro is easy to use and it should be fairly easy to fit it to any barrel, I only use mine on pcps and it's dead simple - I use 2 - 3 turns of insulating tape to hold it firmly in place.
    The other alternative is to spend a lot more on something like this one http://www.merlinarchery.co.uk/chrony-chronograph-f-1.html

    Yep,thats what I did :)

    [​IMG]

    Set up "Chrono corner"
    Old floor lamp provides the light,chrono is stuck down with blu-tac to hold it in the same place and made a wooden rest that is screwed to the front of the table to keep the rifle at what has proven to be the optimum height.
    Argos catalogue provides the essential back stop.
    I would say it is about 80% effective as I still get the odd error reading.
    The Rapid is within about 10fps variation and it is nice to know that both it and the S510 are legal.

    i've had an f1 chrono , a skan and combro and favour the combro out of all of them simply because they're just as accurrate and if you damage them spares are as cheap as chips and straight forward to replace plus i've never actually shot my combro which is what i did do with the f1 which i couldn't fix myself

    I have an Xcortech X3200 for checking the more lively guns! They work well with air rifles. You can input the pellet size and weight, it works out joules or feet per second but not ft lb!

    Where were you this morning when I asked,you could have saved me a few £s :)
    Happy with the F1 anyway as it is nice and open to shoot through and if you hit any part of it you shouldn't be allowed near an air rifle.

    The chronos don't like flourescent lighting which flickers so that could be causing your errors.

    I don't have fluorescent lighting,just a floor lamp with a regular 60w bulb in it.
    It took a while to fine tune the position of the floor lamp to get it to read most of the time,the light is a bit more biased towards the rear section rather than in the middle or front.
    The bracket also helps you get the barrel in the right place,the other thing is it is better to shoot not quite straight (slightly to the left or right) although it has to be quite level in the vertical plane,I think that's where the errors are coming from more than anything.
    r10hunter I will bear that in mind although with the Rapid the figures I am getting match quite well with the sheet I got from XTX Air.

    The Xcortech has lights and sensors built in fortunately.
