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.

    Thank you.

    '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.

    Huggetts seem to be getting a lot of press and there has been a lot of posts (even one today) but i have spent a few hours trawling the internet so forgive me if the following is out their somewhere.

    have an air wolf with an A&M Marksman silencer on it. basically too long. it is just as quiet as my weihrauch silencer which is inch and a half shorter AND it produces flare from my nitsite. looking for as quiet as can be plus shorter.
    The A&M is definitely gonna go.
    1.do i replace it with a weihrauch? £60
    2.do i go for just the huggett standard minus shroud £90
    3. do i go for the belita £70. i have seen posts saying just as quiet as standard????
    4. do i go for the shroud as well and reduce length further £145

    first priority is quietness.

    thanks guys

    I have an Airwolf MVT, the quietest silencer I have for it is an old Theoben extra long, but it is 9" long & weighs 188 grams thus lowering the POI 10mm at 20 meters (ok for home range plinking). The HW is about the best regarding quietness & length. I have a Daystate Reflex silencer its the best for short length then noise suppression. I hope some member can suggest some way of further silencing the Daystate Reflex silencer as its quite easy to take apart but additional weight is an issue.

    Not really into the sizes of mods,I fitted a SAK to a crosman 1322 project I did,that was only short but a bigger diameter than the normal suspects.Link is just for the measurements.

    My Wolf has the shroud cut back to the muzzel so it's no longer a silencer, the tuning fork and rubber O ring is replaced by a solid bushing. This did wonders for its grouping and mood swings and significantly shortened the overall length. It can now take mostly any silencer without becoming excessively long.
    In my case noise was not an issue for garden plinking and novice FTC so a U.K. Neil stripper sits on the end.
