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.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:


    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.

    ls there a reason to not purchase the HR regulated version of the Daystate huntsman regal and stick with the older unregulated version?
    Curiously in .22 cal FAC regulated version has the same number of shots as the unregulated model.

    From my experience, I'd go with the sandard unless the price difference is low. My 177 and 20 were unregged, while the 22 is the regge version, and there wasnt anything between them in fps spread- my 177 was actually lsightly better! I've put a alani reg in it since, and shot count has gone up, but nothing in anything else. got a lane reg for the 20 that I'm debating whether to use or not, as that is spot on as is.
    really comes down to what you want, and how much they are going for. If I can get a regged at a good price I would, but the extra money doesnt improve it that much over the old version for me. Just too good as they are :)

    If I were buying new now I'd go for the regged version purely as it's the next evolutionary step, but if you have the unregged one already I'd not bother unless you really like it and just want to flatten the power curve as the gains are minimal on a good Regal.

    FAC is slightly different in that you want as many shots as possible with a limited air supply, but the above advice is the same - price difference is probably the decider, but all things being equal I'd go Regged.

    I’d definitely recommend the regged version. Mine gives almost double the usable shots in sub 12 and .177 compared to the Regals I’ve had previously.
    Consistency is very good and accuracy is up there with the best.

    Doesn’t the new one have a larger cylinder as well as the reg ?

    They do an xl version which is the bigger cylinder, I'm set on getting one for my next rifle when my bank balance allows it.

    Thanks all for the info.
    It looks like the HR regulated version is the pick.
    I must confess that this is my plan B.
    I went ahead and ordered one of the new regulated AA S510 XS FAC carbine with a walnut stock.
    However there is no guarantee that the factory has got one for the next shipment to Australia. l will know more in the next couple of days but if the don't have one l will be getting the Daystate as it's in-country and the price is actually less than the Air Arms.
    The new power adjuster (clickable) was what tempted me to go with the AA.
