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 have been looking for a second gun to use, seems hard to make my mind up.
    Until this morning I have never thought of a Daystate due to being overpriced and not as pleasing on the eye in my opinion. then this morning i seen a second hand wolverine C for sale at £850, so i am thinking what could i get that for as really like the look of it.

    The only thing about I wished it had was a side cocking lever instead of the bolt.
    So after a bit more searching I found one that had such a lever called the RC so i read on and the add said and this one is regulated. I was shocked that a second hand gun for just under a grand would have no regulator as standard let alone what they cost new.

    So I can now have a regulated wolverine with a side lever at a new price of around £1400.00 Hmm maybe back to the drawing board on this one. I am not mean but I don't like to feel i am being ripped off as there are so many guns that have a reg, for half that price. Its not like they are more powerful as i understand that my powerful motor bikes are more expensive but with air rifles we are stuck at sub 12.
    but hey ho we will keep on looking

    If you buy one of those guns that are “the same” for half the money, you will end up selling it for a fraction of what you paid for it and then you’ll buy what you should’ve bought in the first place.

    You pretty much get what you pay for... pretty much.

    There will be those who knock Daystate for whatever reason, that’s fair enough, as long as they speak from their own experience as opposed to “my mates bird who works in John Menzies knows this man who...”

    I own a Wolverine hi lite and it’s great. I also own Daystates best gun, the huntsman regal. Make of that what you will, but enjoy your gun whatever you buy.

    ".....bikes are more expensive but with air rifles we are stuck at sub 12."

    If you have "Good Reason" why not apply for a firearms certificate for FAC Air? Guns are a lot less money (not such strong demand).
    The Wolverine C isn't as popular as the Wolverine B and not everyone thinks the same as you. I had a FAC Wolverine B for a good few years before I bought an FX which is superior in every way.
    Don't get me wrong I rated the old Wolverine and luckily it always behaved itself.

    I have a wolverine R hi lite and its an awesome rifle, you might want to look at the earlier Airwolf MCT also a daystate rifle which is just as accurate, you might even find one cheaper. I know there are daystate haters and they cant wait to slate them, but I have 3 and all have been perfect for me and never had an issue.

    To answer your question, the wolvys dont have regs because they dont need them. I've had..umm.. "several" wolvys and if I lose one I do regret it.

    The difference betwen my R version and the 2 hi lite, in terms of fps, spread, etc, was pretty much none. The system as it works well, and to my mind a reg doesnt improve it- I've fitted to my regals, and to be honest its pretty much nothing in it. You'll get a bit better shot count, but thats it. I'd rather have a gun that at shoots where you want it to!

    There are a number of guns where a reg is fitted IMO purely to offset the truly bad construction. Its cheaper to put a 60 quid piece of metal in that spend the time, effort and money to work out whats wrong, fix it, and probably cost more than the reg fix does!

    Daystate make some cracking guns, there's a lot of rubbish talked about them, their quality had some issues a few years back but this is old news and all the ones that had issues are sorted on the second hand market, and the new ones are great.

    Accuracy wise, they're insane, I shot two shots onto paper at 40 yards today, I thought I had missed the second shot but it went through exactly the same hole.

    My Huntsman Regal HR is just brilliant, don't know how you could want for more in a Sub 12 sporter, and if you want something really trick you can get the Red Wolf with electronic trigger if you want that kind of style rifle of course.

    Thanks for reply, as a newbie to pcp i am still studying prices etc, yes i was hoping to get some knocked off the £850 but it was the fact that how does such a high end gun have no reg. I like the look of the C version. As an owner of these does no reg make a huge difference?

    Ok that seems a good point, my first pcp i had for a week and was told by someone at gun range its better to have a reg. it makes sense what you say perhaps top end guns don't need them as much as cheaper guns

    I have seen the red wolfs but do prefer the look of the wolverine C. must admit those who own them at the range do swear by them.

    More Watson than sherlock, Looked at gun must say very nice and yes seems a good bargain but i really fancied the C version without the bottle as have a couple of bottle guns already.
    Thanks for the link anyway.
