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.

    We have one as a club gun. Excellent introduction into the world of Pcps. More than capable for what it costs.

    Pros: Nice Walnut ambi stocks (never owned the synthetic stoked version). Very accurate. Anti double load mechanism means you can't put two pellets up the barrel.
    Two magazines supplied as standard (when you think that a similarly designed Webley Venom Viper magazine is about £40 that is a saving).
    Threaded for silencer (so no need to by an adaptor at more expense a la Air Arms).
    Lovely 2 stage trigger (nice and crisp, great feel).
    Can be shot straight out the box (how many PCP rifles come with iron sights?).
    Lovely sidelever mechanism (much better than a rear bolt).
    Gauge on the front of the air cylinder (you can see how much pressure there is in it).
    Quickfill too (unlike early Air Arms S200s or HW100s).

    Cons:
    Auto safety (can be a pain but the button is large and nicely positioned at the rear of the action meaning it is only a quick thumb press to sort out).

    The shot count is better than an S200 by at least 50%. However they are a much larger gun (more air reserve you see). They are just as accurate as an S200, however the S200 is an overgrown air pistol (the rifle was developed from a CZ pistol). The AT44 was developed as a rifle (they do make a pistol version now).

    One of my mates bought one 2nd hand - seems nice enough for the money. My only gripe was a very stiff trigger with an unpredictable let off - probably needs a bit of fettling, but otherwise it seemed like a reasonable gun :)

    Auto safety is a bit of a pita - it can probably be removed/made a manual safety easy enough. I'll have to look into it.

    Sounds like someone adjusted the trigger pull to make it heavier, mine was nice, light clean and predictable.

    Not a pretend PCP at all, a nice, well made, reliable PCP. Plenty of people own them and you don't hear the howls of anguish from AT44 owners like you hear from BSA R10 owners....

    The s200 made by CZ is made by one of the better rifle manufacturers there are. AA simply put there name on that model.

    I know John, but the S200 is derived from a pistol! Basically it is a pistol with a long barrel in a shoulder stock.

    The original concept was going to be a target pistol, so your description is a little misleading :p

    I'd still buy a CZ over many other makes of rifle, they are properly engineered.
