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.

    Hi,

    I've considered the above many many times.
    I'm after peoples opinions on it both good and bad from current or past owners.
    That's about it really.

    Are there certain ones in the development of them that are particularly better or worse?
    Do they have regs? (i hope they do for the price :D

    My thoughts are that your paying the extra for more shots?

    Cheers
    Tom

    the older rangers are regged the new ones are not.
    you can tell an older ranger by the stock as it has no trigger guard and is the stock itself that covers the trigger.
    newer ones have the harper patent valve that is very consistent.
    the older wolfs dont have an information screen the newer ones do.
    screen models are mct and mvt. mvt model has a chrono built in.
    my mates got both a ranger (new type) and wolf mvt that was a one off built by daystate on request.
    he prefers the wolf. i prefer the ranger. both very accurate guns mate. the triggers are quality and the cocking smoother than my missus's legs after shes used a new razor;)

    The wolf has electrics and the ranger is mechanical
    Both have loads of shots.

    Cheers for that, so your basically paying loads for a buddy bottle, compared to a huntsman/regal on a ranger

    the actions on the ranger and a huntsman are pretty much identical id say, but im no expert. the new regal is slightly different inside i believe. id still go ranger over huntsman though any day.

    I have variants of both rifles, the early Wolf (CDT) has no screen and isn't really regged as such but, has Harper valve and Slingshot hammer which makes it very consistent. My CDT Wolf has only a 3 FPS spread over 10 shots, fill pressure is 200 BAR but mine perform best from 160 BAR down. Very good rifle though.

    Early Rangers have a reg but, hammer and valve not as efficient as the later ones, pretty consistent though.

    Latest ranger isn't regged, but has Harper valve and Slingshot hammer, consitent but does have a power curve.

    Latest Wolf, (MCT) has a screen and has a type of electronic reg, and is very consistent, no power curve.

    Out of the two rifles, early or later models my preference is the Wolf, that's just my opinion though ;)

    I've got the new Airwolf with the screen, and it's very accurate while producing around 300 good shots with ease from 200bar. The hammer system is like an electronic regulator, or at least has the effect of something of that nature. Only downside is the weight, I find it fine, but I've ordered a couple of Regals for my wife and son as it's just too much on a handful for them, which could be the case if your going to be carrying it all day? Lovely gun though, never had any problems in the couple of thousand shots I've put through it so far.

    Thanks all, as i suspected, alot of peoples talking points with these is shot count, and other than that for the ranger it seems to have no other benefit?
