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.

    '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.'

  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 have had a MK38 and a B525, out of the two i much preferred the Miroku. They are one of the best (if not THE best guns for sporting clays) IMHO you can get.
    Now, my friend has a Yildiz SS and he loves it. I have shot it and am very impressed with it's balance and handling. Certainly outstanding value for money and the Turkish walnut is of really good quality. I would take one over the Browning any day.

    If you watch The Shooting Channel on YT they got given a few yilditz clay guns to test for something like a year, all they did was clean them, no major maintenance.
    Untold amounts of rounds later and they're still going strong, not the fanciest of guns but apparently reliable.

    My son shoots the new Yildiz pro. Lovely gun, he has so far put a couple of thousand cartridges through it and is very pleased. Metalwork is a good fit and the wood is to die for. He did have to shorten the stock to suit him but it's now his go to clay gun.

    The yilditz will lose money hand over fist come upgrade time, go with the Miroku it’ll hold 80+ % resale and is the best and most reliable fun out there

    I to have shot for the welsh sporting team in 2015 in jersey, also shot skeet, DTL and ball trap for the county many times. All that time using a Miroku 3800.
    To the OP, I personally wouldn’t touch a yilditz if it was free.
    Buy a miroku any grade trap or sporting and it will last you a lifetime.
    @JamieB57, 3800SW now your talking
    What I’d give for one of those again
    32inch mc of course

    I’m a returnee after a good few years away.
    Got my SGC after first lockdown, was ready to go then things went awry as it did for everyone.
    I’ve put it on hold until things get back to some sort of normality (?)
    Then I’m getting a MK38 sporter, brand new but lucky enough to be able to get it at cost via a dealer contact.

    Go try as many guns as you can, what suited in the past may not now.

    Browning and Miroku have changed from what they were. Action is the same barrels and stock shapes changed.
