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.

    Are you using open sights or a scope and do you mean it's not grouping tightly or do you mean you can't adjust the sight(s) enough to get it on your point of aim?

    Depending if your used to a springer or not you could be doing something as simple as holding it too tight? Or if your using a scope you may simply be too close for it at 10m?

    bin the spitfires and get some decent pellets some super domes would be a bit better but if you want good pellets you need to spend at least £8 to £10

    Thanks for the advice guys and will definately be trying a new pellet in tomorrow. However im still wondering if at ten metres from a junior powered air rifle could it really make that big of a difference, as the pellets are flying left, right, low and high at anything from half an inch to three inches. Also can any body advise on the best weight pellet for a rifle of that power??

    Ive been oit and bought a tin of accupels which ive always found good on other rifles, it is an improvement but theyre still not great, im begining to wonder if the scope is not right, is it possible the scope coild be moving its position inside as ice checked the tightness and all is fine there.

    If the guns brand new it might be worth cleaning the barrel as the may be oil residue in there from compression chamber or from when the barrel was manufactured,a lot of barrels tend to be a bit dirty inside when new.If you've got another rifle you could put the scope on that to check if it's okay and not faulty.You've obviously checked things like the stock screws are not lose

    To rule out the scope, take it off and use the open sights.

    thanks for the help guys, its looking more and more like it was to do with pellets and possibly??????? because its new and needs a little running in. been back out in the garden after checking scope was ok and using accupels found it to be grouping within a ten pence piece, however thats just at 12 yards or so. It does feel like the its getting a little better with every shot.

    You may need two or three tins till it's starts to get run in nicely

    I have a webley cub for my son and tried a lot of different pellets and got the best grouping with the 4.52 rws superfield pellets, they were tight to get in but cracking groups. We zeroed at 10 meters but when testing some of the other pellets the groups were terrible.
