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.

    Hey, as some of you will be aware, I am looking at a Weihrauch HW97K and an Air Arms TT200HC both of which are springers. Which of you out there would put me off and put me onto a PCP rifle...??? I like the Air Arms S200 III which I fired a couple of days ago noticing that it is a lot more relaxed than a springer. A springer though is a lot more oompf for the money if you get my meaning. I intend to use the gun for killing vermin (note, I don't mean teenagers) mainly at night but it will be out in the open so noise shouldn't be an issue.

    I am only going to spend 300 quid and that narrows things down a lot. An S200 III could be had with a bottle for 365 so that's pushing it a bit. I may stretch I may not, who know's at this stage...? Not me. Can anyone offer any advice...???:cool:

    yes some good advice, get neither!
    get yourself a hw95, ok it may not score in the looks department like the guns you mentioned ,but will perform just as good as them!
    plus you will be able to get a full outfit for £300.

    It's got a lovely solid kick not just a little fart.

    It's got a kick that destroys accuracy and the little fart kills just as good AND a lot quieter.

    Note, I'm not saying springers can't be shot accurately, but what I am saying is that PCP's can be shot accurately much more easily.

    what he is trying to say is a PCP is more forgiving

    you will get more succes with a PCP.

    by the way you wnt need a bottle for an S200 a pump will fill it easy.
    a pump costs £100 (from JSR)

    you could get a secondhand PCP for £200 i'm sure

    its true what buzz says its easier with a pc,a springer you have to hold it right not balance it on objects,theres a lot of difference you find that people that were brought up with springers can shoot them no bother,but you do not see many of the younger generation who were brought up with pcs using springers to well.

    OK, I agree with what has been said. I found the PCP so easy to shoot compared to the springer but they are sooooooooo expensive in comparison. I do like the S200 though. If it can kill just as good as a springer then my money is with the S200.:violent3:

    The S200 runs at the same power as the springers you mentioned, so there shouldn't be a problem.

    Just to let you know, cheap pumps can let dirt and moisture into the gun when filling it - this isn't good for the rifle - especially water, as this will corrode it from the inside.

    I'm sure JSR pumps are fine, but I thought I'd let you know.

    i got a simular model to JSR if not the same model and i get no problems.

    you will only get moisture in it if you pump to fast (trust me you wont be able to pump it that fast)

    grit wize where are you going to get grit from? unless you pump it up on a beach

    I love the look of the HW97K and love the way it feels in the hand. It is exceptionally solid and weighty and as I will be laying down using a support the weight isn't really a problem. I also love the TT200 HC as it has a shorter barrel and so is nice and easy to swing about if you need to change direction quickly. The S200 is just effortless. It is just so relaxed to shoot compared to the recoil and bang of the other two but I was always brought up on springers and I love them as guns for killing vermin.

    I guess when I make my decision it is going to be difficult and as always, there is the danger of making the wrong decision. I want a gun I can grow old with. I want a gun that is reliable and a workhorse and will last forever. Is that too much...???
