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.

  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.

    What phenomenal rifles those Theoben gas rammers are! I took the SLR98 for a blast yesterday and shot it over the chrono,which I haven't done for a long time. I was absolutely stunned by the results. I shot 7 mags (49 shots) and the variation across the string was a mere 7fps- lowest being 587, highest 596 fps.:up: Shooting H&N Field Target Trophy, which I weighed a batch of and the majority were 15.7gn,some 15.6 and a few more at 15.8. The target at the other end was one ragged hole about 1/2" across (30 yards), so I was pleased with that because after about 20 shots there was no black mark on the paper to aim at, just the hole! Working the figures out, the power is 11.8 ft-lbs! RIGHT ON. What a stunning rifle - I will be taking her out after the squirrels later in the year for sure.:D

    I have never owned or shot a gasram but wow them figures are top draw, the SLR98 looks a top rifle and i like the look of it. There is one in my local gun shop and i've shouldered it and seemed lighter than i thought it would. I won't be buying it but it does seem a great rifle

    They've had that one a while. I looked at it on Gun****. Amazed it hasn't gone yet with the demand for them second hand. Maybe that is why. people want an older one rather than new. Glorious is the only way to describe it.

    Springers, even un-tuned can be just as good.

    Here's my W & S Longbow...

    I have a gas ram, it just does 11.3 foot pound energy shot after shot, after shot, predictable as a very predictable, predictable thing!

    I have an old stage 1 tuned Venom HW80 that has a variation of 2 ftps, the guy who worked on it last told me it was number 1 on his list of consistant guns he has tuned.
    That is in front of top of the range Lazer glided Webleys and Weihrauches.

    I have a Hatsan 60S TG GR, the gas ram conversion (done by Stutleys I believe). It is a high volume affair, the GR is written on the owners manual and the box with felt tip pen!

    Only gas ram I have is my lightning XL fitted with a theoben gas ram. But what a transformation it was! Its a newish XL so turkish made I think not brum, but after fitting the gas ram and a bit of polishing it's as accurate as my tx200hc.

    Try doing a quicker cocking stroke before firing, quite a few of us SLR owners have noticed a difference in power/speed doing this. :eek:

    Frustrated me for ages the inconsistency I was seeing until I noticed this.

    Cheers
