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.

    Good evening all.
    First post for a while.
    Wondered whether anyone has used the above rifle ? Wondered how it compares to the standard 2250b with the shorter barrel and plastic breech. Has anyone measured much of an increase in power ? Any other improvements ?
    Thanks.

    I've not used the XL but have handled one and have experience of the original.

    The XL is around £35 more (£165 v. £130); for this you get a longer barrel, 1/2" UNF mod adaptor, steel breech with proper dovetails and half decent (compared to the joke on the 2250b) 4x32 'scope.

    All in all I'm quite impressed for the money and would definitely consider it worth the extra over the standard model :)

    i have just brought a 2250XL as my first CO2 rifle for ratting and so far im loving it nice and light so easy to use for my other half too as she cant use the springers because of an operation on one hand.

    i only have old springers to compare it to and love it compared to them no recoil and perfect for a good ratting session just ordered a MWSS silencer for it aswell so far hit everything i have shot at so its good enough for me and the rats hate me.

    not shot the old version but bought a 2250xl last weekend and i love it. its my first co2 gun 2. impressed with its accuracy can group five shots in the bull at 10m easy and my kids keep pestering to have a go in the garden. build quality is not at the same level as your daysates or HWs but it certainly is fun. only trouble i had was pellets clipping in the silencer but soon sorted that. just looking for the cheapest place for c02 bulbs now lol
