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.

    I think I`m correct in saying that in the personal adds bit of one of this months airgun mags there are a few for sale with bottles etc just to give you an idea.
    I think for a MK3 with cylinder and adaptor in mint condition you will be looking at £600 ish.
    As far as the MK3 goes I`ve never owned one but know people who do and they seem to be pretty well sorted with no reliability problems to speak of. Unlike the Wolf MVT (mine) which has gone back with consistency issues and I`m led to beleive that mine is not the only one:eek:

    Avoid the A model like the plague (not hard to do as they only made 200 of them). A real PITA. The B model is vastly better and has had many improvements over it's run. You need to specifically know the age to determine which features it'll have such as a reg or not. Lovely to shoot when properly functional BUT the electrickery means problems all must return to the manufacturer - there is little to fix yourself. They have had numerous issues with water preventing the gun from firing in the rain. Daystate have claimed many times the problem has been fixed and many times guns stop functioning when wet. I had two of them and had to return them 3 times. My second had accuracy issues too. I'll not have another.

    i bought a daystate mk3 rt .177 and it was truly dissapointing, the accuracy was for a better word shocking.:eek:

    it wouldn't group inside 30mm at 25yds, which in my opinion is awful for a gun costing £900.:down:

    i looked into this further and there is a few mk3 with similar issues, so my advise is to try and shoot it at a 30yd zero to see how it groups.

    i swapped mine for a weihrauch hw100 kt .177 and in my opinion its a better gun to shoot.

    i have nothing against daystate as i have an airwolf which is an absolute dream to shoot.:D

    Thanks for all replies so far,very helpful. Are there any owners of Daystate mk3's who have owned and used for a long period that could advise on the overall performance i:e reliability,accuracy etc.as i am due to view one tommorow(19/04/09) so all replies would be greatly appreciated.:)
    if for any reason I do not purchase this rifle,could anyone suggest a rifle in the price range of around £500-600 that would best suit Hunting/HFT
    Cheers, Brad.

    for the money £500-£600 you would not go far wrong with a second hand aa s410 or an hw100 with a bit left over for a good scope too.

    both exellent rifles in .177 for hunting and hft, i have owned both of these and you will not be dissapointed with either.
