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.

    Think they will make a regal with shorter cylinder so it fits in stock. One of the main aesthetic points , IMO, of the huntsman classic was it looked like a sportster rifle...the regal , though very nice, is back to looking like an airgun with the cylinder sticking out of the stock

    The Huntsman Classic and the Regal are very similar (more or less identical) from what I can see, except of course for the longer air reservoir and the Regal's chequering continuing underneath the stock as well (I think the stock is the same actual shape, though I may be wrong), and the fact it has different stampings on the receiver. I like the new chequering, but I have to say I have to agree with you guys in that I prefer the look of the shorter reservoir. Part of the point of the Huntsman for me is that it's a superb looking rifle, so that visual difference is a bit of a shame in a way, as practical as the higher shot count will be. I guess what I need is a Regal stock for my Classic, for the best of both worlds - it'd have to be a nice one though as my Classic has a lovely tiger-stripe pattern on the woodwork. :)

    As I understand it the stock won't fit a classic

    You would be correct! The regal's stock is wider than the classic mate

    I can see why you prefer the shorter cylinder I suppose .each to their own and all that .but why would they bring out a new spec rifle and then change it back like the old one ......I dont think it'll be long before they change them but then it will be some version of the wolverine atb

    Ah, didn't know the stocks weren't interchangeable! Well that means I'll be keeping my Classic with its tiger-stripes, then. :)

    The new spec huntsman has the hammer etc built into an aluminium tube screwed onto back of cylinder which makes the overall cylinder /hammer assembly longer but frees up space in reservoir for more shots (also for ease of service) so it would be easy to shorten reservoir to fit in stock still using new design and have roughly same shots as classic. Thus maintaining sportster looks and classic shot count and new easy maintanence design...win win situation. If daystate want me to work for them give me a shout :)
