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.

    Nice - that 40yd group is impressive for a .22 with pointed pellets!

    My only concern as you have mentioned, is supporting the gun with the free hand on the bottle.
    If I choose the Uragan over the Vulcan I will probably mount a foregrip of some sort on an extended rail.

    To be honest it’s absolutely solid and I doubt it will have any play but it’s not ideal. Saying that, I’ve found it comfortable using the bipod when it’s folded up and is quite easy to shoot like that.
    I’ve ordered myself a handle/grip to see if I like that better

    That accuracy is impressive (doesn't really get much better than that) even if you were off a bipod on a bench! I like these and will be tempted if they sit one in a nice lump of Walnut!

    Also like the Edgun Lelya 2 and I think Ed had a hand in Uragan development somewhere along the line.

    Pleased it's making you happy anyway! Enjoy! :thumb:

    Very nice Jon, and totally agree that Strattons in .22 are excellent.....in .177 not so much.

    If you detach the bipod, can you then get scope and rifle in the case?

    Funny with the Stratton’s in .177, I tried them in so many rifles and every one was rubbish. In .22 they are just fantastic.

    If I take the bipod off and put a smaller scope with a smaller top turret if will fit in the case, Only just. Maybe a little Airmax? Was thinking about getting one to pop on there.

    The case must be very small then - although those turrets you have are quite tall. I wonder if a "normal" 4-12x40 would fit in there.....definitely worth highlighting to those people about to buy them :D

    The bipod is less of an issue as its a quick release jobby......

    I’d mentioned it when I was having a moan about how small the case is that it will probably take a smaller scope cased, just.
    I’ll test some other scopes with no bipod for comparison at some point. I’ll probably end up buying something smaller to top it off.

    If you need some to try, let me know and I'll bring them to Pete's - I have a few different ones.
