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.

  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.

Fun (co2) Rifle For The Kids

    Hi,

    I’m pondering getting something the kids can use to plink with at home and at the range and at home.

    I’d like something with a double action trigger so they don’t have to worry about cocking the gun and as large a magazine as possible.

    Currently my daughters use my Rohm Twinmaster but I’m thinking a rifle correctly rested might work well too.

    My Daughters are only 2 and 4 but my nephews (6 and 8) will likely use it now and again too.

    I was thinking of a Sig Sauer MPX/MCX maybe with a 12g or HPA conversion. I’d like it to be pellet and not BB though due to ricochets. They don’t have a very good reputation though it seems (despite the glowing YouTube review, ha!).

    What else fits the bill?

    Oh and yea I might well buy a Steyr Pro X which fits the bill but I’m not sure I’d want to let the kids loose on it!

    Yep the 1077 and the Umarex Ruger 10/22 are both also options. Both have smaller 10 shot mags rather than the 30 shots you get from the Sig though which made that an attractive options.

    Also the Sig being a military replica its likely to hold my nephews interests a bit longer than the 1077 or 10/22. If the Sig is really not worth the trouble though due to problems then both of those are good options though.

    The 1077 is cheap for what it is plus I like the fact it will fire as quick as you can pull the trigger

    1077 all the way , it’s simple and robust , and cheap !
    I’m not 100% certain the same can be said for the SIG MPX range .

    Agreed if I paid UK RRP for the Sig it would be far too expensive. However you can buy them from Europe for about the same price delivered as the Umarex Ruger 10/22 (£200).

    Just checked, the 1077 is only £115 new though. Hmm....

    Kids never keep them on. Just makes it more of a chore too and less fun if you’re having to get them kitted up with goggles first.

    You can get BBs that break up but they don’t work in all guns. You can also get lead and copper coated lead BBs which ricochet less but they do still ricochet.

    The Umarex Ruger 10/22 is a great little rifle,is better than the Crosman 1077 {which almost rip your fingers off trying to remove the magazine}

    The Ruger has single & double action & is pretty accurate,all in all a super carbine rifle

    Yep I'd say the Ruger is better than the 1077 too. :thumb:

    I'm in the same boat my girls are 6 and 9. And I looking for something for when the weather gets better.
    I was thinking of the 1077 because I've always fancied one but I've read the trigger pull is very heavy.
    Is the Ruger trigger any better? How light is it in SA?

    I bought mine a cp2 as i was fed up with forever cocking the hw40

    multishot, silencer, metal breech and itncan grow with them from a pistol to rifle

    my lad is 6 and can only just use the stock. he prefers the pistol

    opens sights is a must

    but we shoot with a red dot - he loves it. keeping it fun and interesting - oh and easy is key at this age
