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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    You can turn it to suit your requirements but it will hold both the screen and torch. I prefer to have the screen on the (left) side and the torch on the right. Doing it like this I look slightly down at the screen most of the time and don't get as much light back on my face, it also seems to balance better. When I mount all the parts in and on a project box I use a heavy duty mount such as those used to fit a sat nav in a car and with the mount in the corner of the box I have a fair bit of flexibilty in the screen position as I can fit the weaver rail on top of or beside the scope and still adjust the screen to where I want it. As soon as you have tried one in the field you'll think of alternative ways to use it, it's not always obvious on the workbench.

    The 30mm version is quite rare but the link you gave has a 25 - 30mm version with the 30mm hole at the weaver rail end so this will work on a 30mm tubed scope. Standard weaver scope mounts will fit this adapter, high ones make most sense, and they can be bought or adapted to fit torches, monitors etc. You won't need top quality mounts for this type of application, the cheap single screw ones will be fine.

    eBay packs are hit and miss, and mostly miss. Elwirecraft do a good one and get their 1 amp charger and you’ll be fine.

    ta terry and to be fair thats a good price on the elwire option, would you go 1800ma or 2800ma ?, many of the batteries on flea bay and amazon have mixed reviews o_O

    The 2800mah option seems to be the better one for nv use, I know several people have this and I've not heard any complaints.
    The ebay ones (they used to be blue and are sometimes referred to as blue batteies) tend to be very poor with low capacity and a tendency to swell up and fail with little use. They also have cheap and nasty chargers which add to the problem. There have been some good ones but the odds are heavily against this.
