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.

    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 rifles, but you may have to tinker with it,
    Some are perfect out of the box some may need tinkering with.
    There's alot o-rings on it, so you can develop leaks..
    are you getting it in fac or sub 12?

    The great thing about Impacts is they are as versatile as anything out there!

    I love my .22 impact and all being well I will have another in my possession very shortly.

    But they have their downsides, expect to have to tinker with it to get it shooting perfectly. Some of them shoot amazing out of the box but generally, they need a little tweaking. But when they have been they are brilliant rifles. I love mine and its going no-where

    As the other guy's have said, the Impact Mk2 is a phenomenal rifle, yes they are expensive and yes there probably is better out there and no doubt someone will be along to tell you that their alternative is better, quieter, more accurate and also costs less and that the FX Impact leaks like a sieve and needs all sorts of tweaks to get it to shoot right. Believe me when I say you'll not regret buying the Impact, I certainly do not.
    Here is my Impact Mk2 limited edition fitted with my Snipe silencer ;) FX Impact & Snipe 1.jpg
    And here it is in the box for range visits;)

    I bought one a few weeks back (no pics yet can't get a good weather day down the range) in .177 UK <12ft/lbs.

    A few random thoughts;
    It's very quiet on the standard moderator so I've not bothered trying any different ones yet.
    I would call the standard but pad an acquired taste, definitely needs changing at some point.
    Shot count is fairly epic although my dreamline bottle probably pips it over a full fill.
    Balances well off hand even with a Viper Pro 5-30x50 on the top.
    Buy a spare mag, they take ages to load in .177, and not very long to empty down the range:D

    It will put the first 5-10 pellets in less than a 5p group at 38 yards (at which point I usually stuff it up). It has put a full mag (all 38) in less than an inch at 45-50 yards even with my poor shooting.
    Mine likes JSB exact 8.4 (4.53), and JSB heavies best so far, very good groups with QYS domed, is average with bisley magnums isn't great with H&N FTT's and hates Superdomes.
    When I can get some non heavy QYS streamlined I'd like to try those, JSB RS and express are next to test as I have part tins of both of them.

    I'm in a similar boat to you mate. 5 kids and poor pay but I got my dream rifle this year. You NEED to do it, it'll be money we'll spent. You'll feel guilty at times but you deserve that impact.
    P.s. Don't tell friends that you're saving for it ;)
