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.

    Ok mate ive just got my fac and ive always liked the m4 look and I was set to get an m4 when I heard about the Barrett rec7 pdw, Remingtonacr, FN Scar, Heckler & Koch hk416 & xm8, lwrc m6 a4, Robinson arms xcr, Sig 556 and finally the Colt acc-m.
    I want something that is accurate & something that's not going to fall apart, I know the Colt has a metal upper & lower but when its stripped for cleaning it looks nothing like it should ( the real thing ) but the sig is made of plastic and when that's stripped it does look like the real thing.
    So if you could buy any of the above which one would you go for and why please.

    What you mean is you want a mil spec AR15 so most of the above will be excluded (not sure about the Barrett rec7 pdw) - CMMG is one I would suggest you should consider - most of the others are OK, it's a personal preference thing really, I was looking for ages and opted for an M4 from Lantac, unfortunately Paul has stopped selling them as he takes pride in offering a good rifle at a reasonable price as opposed to selling them boxed with no work done to them. there are a few more importers (some grey) of CMMG's around now so getting hold of one shouldn't be too hard.

    I've had mine for 2 years now and it still makes me smile every time I take it out, I can, at a later date (due to it being milspec) change the upper for a different caliber, this is something most (if not all) of the others can't do as a lot are made by Uramex under licence and just look like the originals - as you mentioned they strip down unlike the originals.

    The are recommended to run on standard or HV loads but I run mine on subs, I get the odd jam and sometimes the BHO feature don't work but 95% reliability was achieved with the Gen 2 mags, I know Lantac have designed their own polymer mags which are due out soon and work much better with the BHO actuator.

    The mags on the others do operate a little better but don't have BHO - this is something you either like, want or can live without - I wanted it as it!

    As I said it's a preference thing really, I know a few lads on here have the S&W polymer upper version and are happy with it, you pay a bit more for the CMMG but IMO it's worth the extra to have an original (licenced original if you know what I mean)

    I've just seen this post and I'm also looking at getting my first .22LR and didn't even know mil spec guns were available so how do these compare accuracy wise against conventional rifle such as the Ruger 22/10 or the CZ 455 as I'm going to be using the gun purely for hunting? These mil types look awesome though :eek:

    I think they look great, I shoot benchrest but I don't know if they would be accurate enough to do that, but Adymorris sounds like the bloke to talk to.

    It's milspec - it IS an AR15, it just happens to have a .22 rimfire barrel on it, remove two pins, drop a 5.56/.223 upper on it and it's a different caliber AR15 - thats the difference between the Uramex/colt dedicated .22 ones - right now they will only every be a .22 as the lower assembly is custom made for that caliber, that's why you pay a bit more for them

    CMMG also do a conversion kit for a .223 AR15 so you can shoot .22 through a .223 barrel - the only downside is the twist rate in the .223 barrel does affect accuracy a little
