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.

Gladiator re-jigged - shorter, but still epic shot count

    The Verminator is too short for me.

    The Dominator that I have is great now that it has been shortened.

    I wanted something with a higher shot count than the Dominator and when the chance for a Gladiator came up I went with it.

    Trouble is the Gladiator is a very long gun.

    Enter Mick (the logun-ator) who took the Gladiator and the concept and did this:

    Bunnies beware...

    :)

    IMHO this is how the Gladiator should have been to begin with.

    Huge shot count in sub 12 FPE and a great candidate for FAC if I decide to fill the slot on my ticket.

    I should be using it in anger next weekend, with luck.

    Expect an update report once I have it in my paws.

    Thanks again Mick for another great project :D

    Cool, Nice work!

    I love the look of the guns, the shot count is very impressive and most importantly the TDR properties (as I have no more room in my gun safe for a full size rifle)

    What do you think of the Vermy straight out of the box?

    ...im sure 177 wont mind me adding to his post seem as its related...but i couldnt say ive ever shot one strait out of the box.
    most ive come across have had the same problems.bottle valve oring goes hard and fails,they can be b*****s to replace..or even find the right size and shore rating(mind you i have :) with no help from anyone inc fx).most get fitted with dowty washers which pretty much stops them being a TDR any more.
    the cocking leavers cutout has a very small bush that runs inside it and up/down the lower receiver which with the help of a pin cocks the gun.these can shatter then it damages the cut out in the leaver which in turn makes it really rough and a pig to cock.
    some owners remove the cocking leaver return spring but it needs this or wear will occur.
    they also have a funny ''twangy ping'' when shot which isnt everyones cup of tea.its down to the hammer not being under pressure by the spring when it hits the valve which is where the sound comes from.
    it can be dampened slightly with some SG1 BUT it can cause havoc with consistency as they should be run with only the slightest of oiling.
    but all in all,once polished and lubed correctly in the right place there a belting gun .

    That is a very sweet looking air rifle, better looks than its Ma and Pa ! And the shot count must be much higher than the standard Verminator with that longer air tube & barrel, as you said better handling than the Verminator. Top job !
