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.

  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.

    Have trawled the net, but cannot find any info on shot count for the 12 foot pound UK version of this gun, either in .177 or .22, any one have one and could give me that info please. I am torn between the Gladius and the Kral puncher Bullpups. I know the Gladius is a lot heavier than the Kral. Thank you, Bob.

    It's a at44 in a bullpup stock so the shot count will be the same. .177 are generally 45 shots that's from 190bar down to 190bar then the accuracy will drop off.

    Theve got the long cyclinders fitted and apparantly a new hammer system to reduce air waistage so i would expect a higher shot count then that.

    Been out shooting today with my daughter who has the Gladius 177 so did a shot count for you.
    Answer is 100 shots from 200bar down to 100bar.
    Absolutely incredible accuracy. She was getting 5 shot groups that would fit under a 22cal pellet at 40 yards. I genuine single hole no cloverleaf about it.
    She is absolutely delighted with it. H&N FTT 4.52 Did not like my JSB Exacts

    That's a good amount of shots! I held a .22 gladius in my local rfd and quite liked it, felt a touch heavier than my r10 but was very pointable

    Yes it is not exactly a light gun but with all the weight way back at the shoulder it does not feel so bad. I guess the 22 would do just a little more shots per fill.
    I must say that although she stopped shooting and refilled at 100 bar (after 100 shots) there was still no sign of the performance dropping off so the figure could be a little higher.

    I think it will be the Gladius and not the Kral, when you weigh up what you get for the money, ie case, 4 mag's and built in moderator etc, and a proven action, not too bothered about the weight as most of my shooting is done off a rest. Once again ta for the info. Bob. PS. I watched Rack n Load revue on the Gladius, and he said the cocking lever was loose and would come open if the gun was tilted over to the right, does the one you have do that.

    Just a slight correction. The tin of pellets my daughter was using were not 4.52 but were 4.50.
    She gave me the empty tin as they have screw on lids and I have just seen the 4.50 on the rear label.

    Whilst it does have a silencer in the shroud it is not as quiet as an external one and there is quite a twang when it is fired.
    That apart an excellent bit of kit.

    Thank's Jim. I added a question about the cocking lever to my last input.

    The Gladius belongs to my daughter and she has had no problems with the cocking lever.
    The whole loading system has functioned without issue.

    All current data available is for the FAC powered ones so I filled my 12lber to 200 bar to bed it in and shot 170 .177's. The accuracy was just starting to fall off to a 1 pence 5 group at 40m so reckon 180 max would be about its limit to retain decent accuracy. Mine loves Exacts though so perhaps its worth trying a variety to see which suits your particular rifle.
    Hope that helps a little.
