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.

    Now as I have decided to keep it may aswell share the experience of testing. The first thing on arrival was to mate it to a scope and zero it in. Ten pellets later and it was set at 15 metres. The next stage was just to try and get it bedded in so 250 shots later and here we go. The key thing is this is a regulated gun and I think the results speak for themselves. Decided to run a 60 shot string using H&N FTT, weighed the pellets at 11.5 grains then set about the task. Charged to 220 bar (max wp 230 bar) and first shot gave 666 fps, second 674 fps then the next 58 ranged from 675-684 fps. Works out to 11.64 - 11.9 ft lb. It still had 160 bar in the chamber and showed no sign of falling off. Most impressive was not a single shot over 684 and most were around 680. Someone said the problem with 20 cal is too few pellets to choose from. I have H&N FTT, H&N Hollowpoint, Daystate FT and Bisley Pest Control and all appear to work well. In conclusion so far I would not go back to 22 as the 20 cal lacks nothing in stopping power but has a considerable difference in velocity. I will post some more pictures over the next few days scoped and ready for action.

    Update
    Now fitted with a Richter 3-9x50 IR and all zeroed in. Getting a good 100 plus shots from a fill and learning the characteristics of 20 cal.
    10 metres aim 2 dots high.
    20 metres aim 1 dot high.
    30-45 metres on the cross.
    It is a bit pellet fussy and dislikes H&N Hollowpoints with a vengeance. H&N FTT are about 5 mm POI above Daystate FT and Bisley Pest Control at 30 metres. I will update with more info and some pictures later in the week.

    No more pictures yet but I am impressed with the consistency of the regulator. Now shot about 1500 and about 8 fps across 100 shots. :D

    All good things come to an end and the time has come for me to move on from the X2R. To sum up the 20 calibre is closer to a 22 than a 177 and I prefer the trajectory of the 177. What will I have next. A Huntsman Midas. :D

    Huntsman .20

    very nice rifle - hard to beat the quality of a daystate:up:. I take it that you have moved on from the x2 then (sold it)...i've read that you can order a huntsman in .20 - would you consider this then (i am if its an option:D)?

    Try JSB Exacts in .20 cal. They give great results in my .20 Theoben Evo.
