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.

Question Gas ram or PCP

    I am looking to get an air rifle, and i have decided that either a gas ram or a pcp is for me. The pcp rifle i am looking at is ths AA s400, but as i will be using it on overnight hiking trips on friends land I thought a gas ram would be less of an issue as i wont have to worry about charging it. But as I have a long dislike for break barrel rifles the only gas ram rifle I could find is the SLR98, which is out of my price range. The perfect rifle would be a underleaver gas ram, or the TX200 HC with a gas ram to fit...(if posible)...
    Anyone one got any ideas?

    The drop in gasrams just replace the spring, so it's not possible to put one in a TX as they use a rod that's stuck in the piston and a notch on the end of the rod latches on to the trigger mech to cock the gun.

    No, the only other fixed barrel guns that took a gas strut was the old air arms side levers, and there a bit dated now plus not sure if you can still get rams for them.

    Have you ever shot a gas ram?If you haven't then i would try one before spending a lot of money on one,they really are a Marmite gun.If you want a cheaper under leaver then go for something like the TX with an after market tune kit,it will shoot every bit as good as a gas ram well actually better in my opinion.Don't let the sales hype get the better of you when they say that unlike a spring gun you can leave a gas ram cocked indeffinatley,well any decent modern spring gun can be left cocked for hours without the slightest difference in performance.

    I agree with the last post. A pcp or gas ram are two totally different choices. Don't believe the hype that rams reduce recoil - they simply make it sharper and more snappy. Many hate such an action whilst some love it. If you want a TX then get one as it's one of the very best spring guns ever made. The spring will last tens of thousands of shots and is easy to maintain at the legal limit. Aftermarket gas rams are not adjustable in any way at all, so if you get a 9 ft/lb one there's zilch you can do about it.

    I am firmly in favor of PCP in terms of performance... But I've never fired a top end springer, only mid range, so I could stand to be corrected. Initial outlay is higher, but I am pleased that I switched...

    You'll get a lot for your money in the second hand market...

    you can get a pump for them.
    i agree with every thing else u say.sure there a ram for a old bsa under lever but im not 100%.tuned springer ova a rammer all day for me and a pcp over them both.
    my order
    1:regulated pcp
    2:pcp
    3:tuned springer
    4:gas ram
    5:springer
    co2 dont deserve to be up there as imo not accurate enough,oh forgot the smk b2 is the best:D
    im sure it the bsa goldstar that can be rammed and it is very similar to theoben slr98.by the way theben slr98 is rubbish.u got that thing about break barrels bending barrels.i know as i was there once.quality break barrels dont do that or opt for a short barreled rifl like theoben evolution or bsa lightning gas rammed.imo the lightning gas rammed is as good if not better then the evolution.

    The pump will work on Theoben guns only. As I said the aftermarket ones for BSAs and Webleys etc. simply have no adjustment at all.
