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.

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.

    Ta da! ;)

    In summary: Excellent drag characteristics, unfortunately not as accurate as the best JSB alternative in guns I've tested them in, but not terrible.

    Some seem to be getting through with split skirts which will really ruin accuracy.. IMO the design shows promise but either needs tweaking a bit or is being let down by poor QC.

    As DEFIANTS they were brilliant...but that was before the machinery was moved from London to Germany!

    If you have Micro Splits in rear it's very possible that you have Reboxed old Defiants

    Original Design had Micro Splits for better sealing - but was droppped in Later production Runs by Pax Guns

    H & N did take a good number of Boxes of Pax Stock - When they brought the Company - Which they have repackaged

    i have tried the 177 15grain Sniper Magnum in my Daystate MK3. I was more interested in seeing if it would take the gun over the 12ft/lbs limit but it measured 11.7 ft/lbs on my chrono. I shot about 10 pellets at a 25 yard target and they seemed to group well but the weather was wet and windy and it was a bit pointless trying out any further. I did not find any damaged pellets and the tin had the code CN 1504 10 90062. 15 on the back of the tin.

    Did you ever manage to soft catch any of these as it would be interesting to see the shape of the back end after firing.

    I have some Defiants left...only about 150 left though! It would be interesting to try these against the new H&N version (supposedly made on the same machines and using the same wire). I have balllistic jelly I could do it , but it will be a week or so before I can get round to doing it and I need some of the new pellets - a handful would do. I will try and buy a box / tin.

    I have a few tins of Sniper Medium, .177.
    I tried them against diabolo fields. The below photo is a mag (14 pellets from an HW100 at 25yrds, indoors) each of the snipers (in the centre) and the diabolos (to the side). I rather like the snipers...

    I see that defiants are still available(BAR for starters if anyone wants some) , so with all of the above in mind, I assume these are old stock and will soon become unavailable and replaced by the new H&N sniper pellets ?

    I think he means L as in 5.6mm, the Defiant Vintage, which H&N don't seem to consider worth marketing but if you've got an older gun British gun like an Airsporter they are the business.
    It's a bit like the original Eley Wasp, a case of buying up old stock as & when it becomes available.

    Hi chaps - no I didn't mean 5.6 - I meant .22 L head size, 14gn standard Defiants.

    If I can't get them, I shall go back to Accupell / Crossman crow magnum (same thing)
