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.

Crosman 1377 .177 Pellet Query

    I used to own a 1322 way back in the 90s, but regrettably had to sell it when I returned home from a relationship breakdown as my Mum was "anti gun".

    I can't remember which pellets I used for the 1322, but I think they were RWS or something similar.

    After a bit of pondering, I've decided to treat myself to a Crosman 1377, however, I'm unsure on which pellets to purchase.

    My intention is a bit of "all round" work, and I want something that won't be harsh on the pistol.

    Many thanks for any input, & I welcome any suggestions & comments on maintaining this pistol in good order.

    If you're just paper punching then the RWS Hobby or Geco flatheads would be a good option, but others available such as the H&N Excite or Bisley Practice.

    What do you mean by a bit of "all round" work though ?

    Hi,

    Thank you for the reply & suggestions.

    By "all round" I mean shooting cans, bits of wood, & occasional small Vermin like Rats, etc'..

    What are your thoughts on the Crosman premier 10.5g domed pellets as I can source these quite cheaply?

    Perhaps a bit on the heavy side for a pistol, but I can't see any major reason not to use them. RWS Hobby is a good choice for most pistols, and can be found pretty much anywhere.

    I really wouldn't reccommend using any pistol for vermin, even something as powerful as a 1377. The power and accuracy is way too marginal to guarantee a humane kill.

    Thank you for the reply, & I'll take your advice on avoiding Vermin.

    Is the RWS Superdome (8.3g) a good candidate for the choice of pellet or are these to heavy also?

    I'll just use the Crosman premier 10.5g pellets as spares for when I run out of others.

    Maybe the odd sick/injured animal, at point blank range.

    As above with regard to vermin other than close range dispatch of cage caught vermin.

    Not really much point in using a more expensive diabolo pellet when the flatheads are far cheaper :up:

    Nice one for the heads up guys.

    I can get the RWS Superdome at 8.3g for £6 for 500. Are these any good?

    They're an old-school springer pellet. They're usually accurate out to 25yds or more in a rifle, so they should be fine at pistol ranges.

    One thing to consider is that flatheads leave a slightly neater hole for scoring if you're doing a lot of paper punching. Unless you're looking for match-grade competition accuracy, I wouldn't worry as much about choice of pellets as you would with a rifle. At pistol ranges, pretty much any half-decent pellet should be reasonably accurate for plinking so long as you don't go for bargain basement.

    Of course, for fixed sight pistols, varying the pellet weight, will allow you compensate for elevation errors.

    When I first got my SAA, I started with 7.9 grain Crosman Premier, and it was shooting way too high (see image below), so I switched to the 10.5 grain ones, and it's now shooting much closer to centre.
