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.

    Had a few shots with it in the garden but my gardens only 20 yards.its doing single holes though so it looks like its gonna be very good.if you buy one you need to by the charging adapter which believe it or not isn't included in the price and also a 1/4bsp to 1/8 bsp adapter so you can connect it to your charging lead.ive got ah bushnell legend hd 3-9x40 on the gun and it's very light,compact and seem powerful too although I haven't chrono'd it yet.mines a .22 and even with the small cylinder they reckon it's good for 210 shots.top banana

    Thanks, look forward to a more in depth review on this once you've put it over a Chrono.

    Purchased a Gunpower Hellcat .177 on the 5th July, went down to Gunpower, Ashford in Kent to collect it which was the nearest to where I live where it was available.
    Got the gun, stock extension, silencer, filler and bottle adapters and the case for £600.
    It's exactly the same as the Stealth, but with a much smaller bottle (200cc) giving around 150 shots in .177.
    The bottle size leaves it at about 3.5lbs without silencer, scope etc.
    It's a nice accurate gun so far only been used in my back garden to run it in.

    When first got it was putting out 8.4 to 8.7 ftlbs using Crosman Domed (7.9gr), and up to 9.5 ftlbs when tried a few Webley Hustlers (9.5gr). (7th July).
    Next chronoed it on 31 July it had increased to 8.8 to 9.2 ftlbs on Crosman Domed, and tried some Bisley Magnums (10.65gr) which gave 9.5 to 10 ftlbs.
    It's had a good 200 pellets at least through the barrel...mostly Crosman Domed to try and stick to one for running in.

    Put a Hawke 4-12x50 AO IR scope on it so as good for both target and hunting purposes, the gun still feels good even with that size scope.
    The silencer is quite effective, to fit a standard 1/2 unf requires an adapter from Leupys or one found on Ebay.
    Although I think you could drill out the end cap that removes for the original one, and insert a 2 way 1/2 unf adapter for others.

    A few pictures, the third one with the better scope for me...plus a rubber butt pad from Ant Supplies to improve comfort.
