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.

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. 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.

    Do you think it would be worth buying a brand new rifle such as an ultra or an s410 or should I "do up" my mark 2 s200, personally I prefer the idea of getting my s200 tuned and regulated, adding new bits such as a new bolt, new trigger guard, new trigger! I will be using it for hunting!

    Make it a one of a kind s200 ;)

    Who cares what anyone else thinks? It's your rifle, so you do whatever you want - you don't have to ask permission from us! A new rifle such as you mention will cost a substantial amount, but a bit of TLC for your existing rifle will, as you say, make it a unique item.

    As for tuning it, what have you in mind? The S200 is a pretty damned good rifle straight out of the box, so there's not a lot to do to it (unless you want to get it regulated, which may increase the shot count etc).

    You do whatever you want, fella. Some will like what you do, some won't - but it's what you want to do and how you want to do it that counts.

    Its arguably better, and almost certainly more accurate than the two you've mentioned. That barrel is a work of gunsmithing art!

    I though loads of times about trading my ultra in, but after a reg and a fettle it shoots so bloody well!!

    A bit of TLC and some high heels and lipstick:D

    Rowan multi shot adapter if that's your bag? Regulator and brass/stainless bits to replace the plastic.

    Honestly? I'd not mess with the internals at all. It's a good enough rifle without.

    S200 is a very good rifle but I do change my rifles abit but not to upgrade or because I think im getting a better rifle its just purely because I like to have a change......so if you fancy a change and can afford to then id say go for it but tarting the s200 up abit is also good so its down to you mate atb

    If you want to make the rifle your own, I think you've answerd your own question! keep what you've got it's a lovely rifle, and just add some bits to it, if you want to make it more unique.

    I'm gunna make it my own I think! like you say tart the plastic bits up, and maybe just ask my local gunsmith to have a look inside to see if everything is ok! how much will they charge me just for a look over? I still need to get my power sorted, but that shouldnt be anything serious! if it is I will just have to fix it, end of!

    thanks for the input boys! much appreciated ;)

    Put your own stamp on your gun and have something that will be sentimental!

    Assuming you get the power correctly set and the gun is running nicely, I'd concentrate on good glass, good pellets, and plenty of shooting :)

    I have a lot of time for the S200 and I consider it one of the very best options you could possibly buy into.

    Personally I'd just get a good scope and set the rig up just right and drill tiny groups. Nothing upsets people more than doing well with 'modest' kit ;)

    The AA multishot on the S200 automatically cycles. The Rowan is manually indexed :)

    Good glass = good scope

    Manually indexed magazine, as the name suggests, requires that you manually rotate it to load each pellet in turn while cycling the cocking bolt. The AA multishot adapter automatically cycles to the next pellets, but you have to rotate the Rowan one yourself by hand.

    As it happens this makes it a pretty impressive safety feature rather than an inconvenience...

    I'd take a manual index over auto any day. You just spin the drum 90 degrees and pop in a pellet, that way its always full and you won't miss opportunities.
