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.

    Can anyone advise how suitable an FX Impact is for left handed? I believe the mag sticks out from the cheekpiece so wouldn't be ideal, could this be altered?
    I believe there is a left handed version but I'm used to right side bolt/lever.

    My Wildcat is right handed but I bought an aftermarket left handed cheekpiece which fixed the issue.

    It should be fine as the magazine is sufficiently out of the way, (and back), from your cheek placement.

    Also, the .22 has two types of mag - 12 shot loads from the left side and 18 shot from the right.

    I only ask as I had googled it quickly and found a forum where someone mentioned it being 'unusable' due to the positioning of the magazine.

    I don’t think you will have any issues - best thing would be to try and shoulder one with mag inserted to make double sure.

    Good luck.

    I think it is worthwhile contacting ASI to establish which is your nearest RFD who has one in stock so you can find out yourself. I am a bit far from you in North Linc's but you are welcome to try it out although it is FAC but it is not a test on performance you are needing to establish.

    I've only picked one up and had a very quick play, but I should think it's ok.

    But have a look at one if you can.

    Ahhh, I see what you mean.

    Strangely enough I never thought to do the same with mine but as they say, beauty is in the hands of the beholder so out OP may be fine but I totally agree, he must get to feel one in the shoulder before splashing the cash.

    Liam at Air Fective is in the process of making a left handed cheek piece.

    I thought the mag protrusion was fine and no where near being a problem but I do agree about the cheek piece being a bit harsh for a lefty, when I’ve got mine and I know the dims I’ll be knocking out a few for us special lefty’s ;)

    I shoot my Impact left handed with no problems. Mine is currently in .22 mode with the 18 shot magazine. While on aim, the magazine is well out of the way down below my left ear. The cheek piece has never been a problem to me either, so I wouldn't even upgrade it to a left handed one if/when they become available.
