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.

    Hi all, has anyone had any experience shooting or owning one of these ? I tend to be hunting more from the 4x4 nowadays and the length might be useful. Although to get one I would need to sell my HW100 first. On the fence. Keep the HW or switch to one of these ? Help ! :D

    Hi Pete, never shot a FX but dare I say it but they are almost as good looking as your HW :D. They are a tad expensive tho, right? You don't want to go down the bull pup route?

    cheers

    hello, there are other factors to consider such as is this only for rabbit hunting or do you like me sometimes shoot rats from my motor most in winter or inclement weather a shorter barrel is more ideal , if you do go FX would you get same results as your HW? shooting from your motor or walking the fields etc. the vermy is very light weight, high shot count, accurate and well made pcp well liked by many either .177 or .22. i have a mk1 vermy in .22 and dedicated with red torch for night time rat shooting, you could also look for same as would be a cheaper option. if you decide to follow through i would go for .177 and use a heavy pellet. you could also look at fitting a longer barrel if you dont like shorty ones say a carbine length if shorter than your HW. have a google on reviews, i must say i am not a fan of enclosed barrels as i think they dont make much difference to the pellet noise . my MK1 has a hw mod fitted and whisper silent, but if i was going to use another mod it would be a matts as equal as the hw but much better priced.

    Hi i once considered the FX verminator but if you compare the length with the fx silencer attached they are almost the same length as a hw100kt so no real advantage apart from shot count. I would recommend handling one they look good but dont feel right compared to a hw carbine for me.:rolleyes:

    You will need the silencer, they make a helluva crack without. I like mine, but it is not that comfortable to hold in all positions, I would definitely try one for fit befor commiting the spends. The power adjuster is useful if you do any short range shooting in/around barns etc.

    Keep the hw, the Fx was a big let down when I bought one, just lots of niggles with them, and not sure on the barrels.
