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.

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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, so it's a common or garden and totally unremarkable rifle, but it's mine :cool:

    Tried an MTC Genesis UL 3-9x40 on top and what a waste of time (and money) that was :(

    Then I remembered I still had a little Bushnell Legend Ultra HD 1.75-5x32 in a box, so I dropped that on instead. OK, so it's a plain cross ret, but it's a great little dawn/dusk scope which gets me up and running until I get another Nikon Prostaff BDC later this week:

    [​IMG]

    If the weather holds I will try and get out tonight to get it dialled in and maybe christened...

    ;)

    Going to pick up my .223 on Wednesday which, along with the .270 Browning A-Bolt Medallion, almost makes the full set. Only FAC air to sort out now...

    Nice work - I have one in .17hmr and it's a cracker. The only things I didn't like about it were the trigger (so I bought it a Timney unit) and the bolt needed polishing. Other than that it's a really good rifle, and I wouldn't get rid of it.

    Think it was about £47 for 500 or thereabouts.

    Can't remember for certain - I spent well over a thousand pounds in one go and I didn't pay any attention to .22 ammo costs :p

    Been thinking about a semi-auto but this looks great! Maybe I will have both when I get my FAC later this year.

    I've used both and went for the bolt because you just can't quieten a S/A down to the same level.

    I'm a hunter so I would rather shoot more over a longer period than shoot less in a shorter time :rolleyes:

    The trouble with the S/A is that if it's calm conditions the noise of the action carries a lot more than cycling a bolt.

    The other thing is I'm a naturally lazy hack and the S/A can run flawlessly if, and only if, they are kept incredibly clean. Most feed issues are down to people not cleaning the mags and action correctly and then they blame the gun instead of the slovenly habits :rolleyes:

    My mate runs his S/A mags through an ultrasonic cleaner, which is more faff than I care to take on.

    Having been out on some extended lamping and dusk trips I usually get far more with the bolt action than I ever got with the S/A

    It's odd that rabbits don't seem overly concerned to see their neighbours rolling over next to them, but they certainly don't react too well to the semi-auto action noice.

    Whatever works is good through.

    You might struggle to get both unless you specify different purposes (target range practice and pest control) for them, otherwise most constabularies will take the stance that one .22 rimfire is enough.

    Enjoy :)

    Thanks 177. Never considered the noise issue. At the rifle club we just fire without mods so pretty similar level of noise. I would be thinking of using it for hunting though. Maybe I'll go with the bolt action for hunting and maybe the Ruger for the range.

    Thanks again.
