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.'

  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, after my Android phone went nipples skywards and I went to Apple I sold my Blueshot cable a couple of weeks ago which has served me well over the years and have now just forked out for one of these new FX Cronos. I had a look around, and although I'm generally happy with my Combro, I can no longer use it with my phone for shot strings, and the FX one is no more expensive that a lot of the other cronos out there and has more functionality, so out came my wallet :(

    I'll sell on my Combro now as I don't see the point in having two cronos. The figures I get will be what they are, probably within a few feet of each other, and who is to say which is correct - even at 0.5% error they can both be out by 3/5fps?

    Watched the Airgun Gear Show video. No details on th changes from Mk1 to Mk2 apart from the bracket.

    I like Giles usually but this time he just came across as bitter not funny. At least to me.

    He also ignored the fact you can seem to get readings that are more than a few fps apart, as reported by many in here!

    There you go guys, you need to undo the 4 screws and take out the tripod fitting bracket and then slot in the new one, screw her back up and jobs a gooden.

    Now i just need some time to try it out [​IMG]

    Nice to know the bracket is being supplied FOC so I'll order one but I've used mine from day 1 of them being available with the supplied tripod and had no issues at all with it, great bit of kit.

    So using the bracket means you lose the tripod screw?

    £0.01P Plus £2.99 postage ;) I already have a 3D printed bracket which works perfectly but I ordered the £3 one as well "just because it was there on offer"

    I’m surprised they didn’t make one that screws into the tripod screw.

    I’m suprised they didn’t copy the version that slides over the mod, that guys on here have kindly shown us @ about £25 but a great bit of kit, my mate has one and it looks like it was made by FX it’s that good.

    bits of elastic bands on a £150 chrome is a joke imho, works well and indeed suits a crombo it’s a third of the price near enough

    Just unpacked mine - it's got two little clip like arms which fold out the side top and bottom - no idea what they are for as I have not seen them in any videos? It's also got a base plate - so I'm guessing this was the original bit which used to hold the tripod before they added a bracket? It would have been nice to see some sort of coating/padding on the bracket rather than just plastic - which lets face it, 90% of us will glue something to it so we don't mark our mods! And yes, I have elastic bands at home, but again, it should come with something so it's ready to use out the box - all little things, but if they are so little then why not address them from day one :rolleyes:

    Anyone been using the new mount?

    Ive been using it with elastic bands and feel i should get a strap as i feel elastic bands will snap and the hole thing breaking hitting the floor...

    It is mote consistant though, 100%.

    Ditto, the machine works perfectly with this new set up, I'm thinking of a better solution myself, but the Velcro I tried was too wide, and it struggles to hang onto the little pins which the bands can grip. There is another couple of clips down the side - a larger band could be my future solution with some foam tape to protect the moderator - and yes, the moderator substitute is not a moderator!

    I tried one, but they don't fit round the little plastic legs on the mount, so they are a pain to use, but one is enough if you tighten it.

    Looks good - but I priced them and they are £17 plus delivery for 5 cable ties - perhaps not :oops:
