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.

    well I sold my impact mk2 today, and here is its replacement, I haven`t shot it yet but hopefully it will offer a similar performance. What are your thoughts on it?

    hi Marky, just fancied a change mate. I had the scope on the impact and it is very good for what I paid for it about £350. if you are on about the bottle sticker I agree, and will have to hide it under a neoprene cover once I sort out the bottle weaver bipod mount.

    That’s a good enough Reason
    I hope it serves you well
    Can I ask where you got the scope from?
    Could you not fit an extension rail instead of a bottle clamp?

    I have been considering one for a while, trouble is it doesn't offer anything over the IMPACT except the folding option, way less in fact if you leave it as it is with the short cylinder and not the bottle as you have (which IMO spoils the look).

    The other point is that after having dozens of AR15's and every accessory and stock option known to man I have yet to find one (AR15 stock) that I feel comfortable with anything other than off hand rapid shooting with.

    As a backpack field gun however it would be unsurpassed, I am probably just going to go with a Dreamline in a standard stock, wood or synthetic, which I will have dipped.

    I prefer the look of the saber bottle clamp, I have got a rail adaptor I used on my impact to push the bipod further forward to give a more stable platform or may look at the newer rails available from braces. I bought the scope a few weeks ago when they were on offer from solware cheaper than the smaller atom version! P1010077 (1).JPG

    Having said that one of the guys at Petes sold his IMPACT after getting the DREAMLINE so they must have something special.

    fair points, but it is about £500 cheaper than the impact, simpler design so should be more reliable seal wise hopefully, length of pull is adjustable to suit different individuals, you still have all the power adjustments and calibre swap ability, just lacks the shot capacity and higher power potential of the impact for FAC use. I prefer the bottle fitted as it doubles the shot count and gives you something to grip, also if you fit a silencer you could even fit a longer bottle without hindrance to the barrel. anyway each to their own. you have a choice of bottle or tube, you don`t see any impacts with air tubes fitted, they wouldn`t look right.:)

    Yes totally agree! a chunk of money less, unless of course you have to buy the Dreamline lite then add all the parts to turn it into the COMPACT (which of course is not for sale in the UK due to obvious reasons).

    I also think from what I have heard the Dreamline cocking action is better than the IMPACT.

    As far as I am aware you cannot yet buy the tactical compact with a bottle fitted as the barrel shroud is too thick and there is not enough clearance. full version you need the bottle adaptor,with compact you don`t, but you can`t fit the 500cc bottle to the compact, my set up cost me £1200 for the gun with both cylinder and bottle.

    @badgerginger that looks fantastic :up:

    I want to convert my dreamline to a bottle version, trouble I am having is finding anywhere with a bottle adapter in stock. PM's welcome if anyone knows of anywhere in europe that has stock and doesn't require messing around with a bank transfer for payment.

    Keep an eye on the Krale website they have them in from time to time. I got mine from a guy who’d bought it from them but waited that long he sold his Lite and bought the Bullpup version instead
