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.

    Thank you.

  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.

    I fancied one of these a few years ago. When I finally tracked one down in a gun shop to have a look at it was nice but the trigger and trigger guard arrangement felt a bit cramped and undersized. It put me off. Just goes to show it's not until you see something in the flesh and get your mitts on it that you can make the decision.

    That ,was my first pcp, Was the Typhoon. Great little gun. Ben Taylor , fitted a reg in mine. Gave me , about 200 shots. You get 70 shots being 177

    To me its, one of those ,for me certainly, you pick up you cant put down , you must empty the air. Only trouble is they, are single shot. You can buy a mag , but you have to turn it , yourself.
    It fitted me like a glove. Got the advise , buy a Rapid instead.
    Never trusted anyone after that. Total disaster.
    Then after that , someone on here said , how about a Regal. After that , I bought what I wanted. Never asked , for advise , about it on the forum or anything. Now I'm really happy.

    Sorry for going off track there, try one see what you think. The butt pad is adjustable, same ones used, as cs800. Mine was only available in walnut. It was a great little gun.
    Hope this is of some use.

    I have a rebadged Typhoon as a 177 Logun Solo. I have had it for years and have no complaints about how it performs. It is fitted with a finger index magazine which are now like rocking horse droppings, however Stuart Waudby of SMW Engineering is presently developing a self indexing mag along similar lines to the one he produces for the Falcon. I have one of these and they are brilliant. Probably one of the most accurate guns I have ever owned and with a sweet trigger and to be recommended.
    Rather than buy a FX T12 with a mag, buy a Typhoon and fit it with a mag from Stuart and save yourself up to £200.

    hello, i have one, also have a FX vermy MK 1, both in .22, like any PCP need to be kept in good working order with the occasional service, and remember to keep enough air in tube to keep seals tight, my Typhoon came with a indexing mag you turn yourself, what do these self indexing ones look like Stockscrew ? how do they work?

    I have a T12 in .177 and very happy with it. It loves Bis mags, but I’ve got some QYS ones to try. Utterly silent with a MattyW silencer on.
