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.

Hatsan Hercules Bully .45 Characteristics

    Hello Airgunners,
    I just received a Hatsan Hercules Bully .45 and I just wanted to share the experience and ask your advise.

    When cocking the side lever it is really hard but it is also very accurate whith strong balance. Is that hardness normal or I can configure it? I like the strength it needs but I need to ask.

    Also simetimes the filling hole stays open when closing the side lever cocking. The trigger also is very very hard, but I also like that!

    I like very much the strong airguns that demand strength and it is hard to scope and fire. What is your experience please?

    You might have the wrong forum to put your question Kyriakos:). This is a UK based forum and your rifle would be difficult to own legally here. You are probably better asking for first hand experience on a US forum as they dont have the silly power restrictions we are subjected to here:(. Good luck.

    @Kyriakos I have the original Hatsan Hercules 22, 12ft.lb. I have no problems with the cocking lever. With mine the cover for the charging hole automatically opens when cocked and closes when i pull the trigger. I've adjusted my trigger too and it's absolutely how i like it now. I don't know if that's helpful with your Bully.

    This is the beastie in question, Sanguinius. A very different rifle to yours.

    It does look a bit 'heavy duty', doesn't it? At 10.3lb, un-scoped, I wouldn't want to carry it for too long.

    I did a search on it too out of interest.

    In the review the factory trigger was set to 6lb.......

    Can be adjusted though

    They look so different it's unbelievable. I'll tell you something though, be grateful you bought the Bullpup version. Mine weighs over18lbs fully kitted out. Thank god for bipods! :D Luckily i only use mine in the garden. Let me know how you get on with yours though. I'm really interested in how the Bully performs...

    Thank you so much for your answers!!!!

    So in order to close the cover, I have to hit the trigger? So it stays opened when pulling the lever?

    (great gun the Hercules! )

    About country laws, here in Greece we have the most crazy laws. You are allowed to buy any airgun, but use it nowhere! :facepalm:

    Only at the shooting club...

    Yes, it opens and closes every shot. A stupid design in my opinion. Wow, that's ridiculous over in Greece. Thankfully here in the UK you can shoot on your own property as long as no projectile leaves your boundaries...

    Yes here in Greece you are allowed to purchase any airgun but you are allowed to use it ONLY at the shooting field.

    About the Bully design, if you think that when the gun is cocked, then you see that at the open fill port, then it is not a bad design. It is so ergonomic.
