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.

    I have an SMK 19 Carbine (yes I know thier not great) over the last month I've bagged around 8 pigions and have been happy with the grouping on a target at 25 metres using Milbro Caledonian .22 pellets. I've also got 500 H & N Field and Target trophy and have missed evey shot with them. :mad: So tonight I set up the range at 25 metres and tested each make. With the H & N I get a random 80 mm dia. spread yet with the Milbro I can get a 30 mm group each time. Are pellets that different ??? The K & N are more expensive and are smooth bodied. I was hoping for the same results from both.

    On another matter I'm looking at getting a Pre Charged Gun and like the look of the BSA range ie the Ultra multi-shoot or the Scorpion T10. What would you buy with around £400 ???

    Thanks,

    Peter

    itns not always the pellet thats diferent but the barel!

    all barels like different pellets (which is why there are so many)

    find a pellet that gives you good groups.

    PCP wise for £400 you could get a nice new PCP maby not a multishot though.

    the ones you have listed are good and tend to get good reviews also.
    the ultra is a good prices multishot but you need to be able to multi task.
    not everyone like the way it is loaded.

    also with PCP you have to take the cost of charging equipment into account

    Thanks for the info Guys,

    Not sure I can go to the price of an AA s410 at the moment. They all seem to be over the £500 mark. Would it be worth going for a second hand AA or BSA Super 10. Is it best to go for a .177 rather than a .22 as there seems to be alot of talk in the mags about which is best for hunting. (It's main use).

    With regards to charging I have a friend who has a dive bottle he wants to loan on a perminant bais as he no longer dives. I assume I will just need the guage and valve assembly for the gun of choice.

    The dive bottle may be out of test in which case it will need to be tested before you can use it

    Thanks,

    I'm sure the bottle is out of test as the chap has not dived for some years.

    In terms of a new gun I have narrowed it down to a possible one of the following:-

    FX Typhone which has great reviews for around £390

    AA S400K at around £370

    BSA Scorpion carbine at £320

    BSA Ultra Multi at £350

    All single shot apart from the last one.

    I've made the assumption that the AA S400 is the single shot version of the S410., am I correct here ???

    Any views,

    Peter

    You are correct the s400 is a single shot version of the s410 and there is a conversion kit available that will allow you to turn it into a multishot in the future if you wish

    the S400 can have a magsine fitted to it for around £50 but it is not an auto loader (you will have to pull the bolt back, spin the mag with your finger, then push the bolt forward.
    the S200 also has a magasine system.


    both BSA and Air arms make good rifles.

    with regards to caliber i think it depends on what you are hunting.
    say you ar shooting rabbits out to 50yds or so then .177 is fine but for barn work or general close range shooting .22 is supreme

    The magaine system for the s200 is really good it's automatic and works well

    Budget?!

    No PCP is "budget", you're better off with a springer if you don't have much money for a gun.

    e.g. The Weihrauch HW100 costs the same as my car! :D

    Air Arms and BSA are good, so are Theoben although they're more expensive by a fair bit.
