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.

    When people talk PCP's it's usually mentioned the AA S410 or the HW100's are the best value performers in class, but how does the BSA R10 mk2 fair up, it certainly a gorgeous looking rifle but does hold up to the others on performance, I just don't hear much about it but looking into reviews etc it seems a beauty.

    I'm surprised that you haven't seen any of the 'discussions' regarding comparisons of the R10, often with the HW100.
    It's a matter of personal choice, there won't be any real difference in accuracy but the R10 holds more air. As for the looks of the different rifles that is purely a personal matter. I can only suggest you compare them personally and, if possible, shoot them as well.
    Unfortunately this thread is almost certain to go the way of many similar ones before it with a real chance of getting down to the point where bans are imposed.

    hello, they will all do the job intended and have a following of dedicated users and all well engineered and as per usual some will need returning for minor adjustments as has been noted on here and other forums, but if you get a good one on all 3 and look after will last years with the usual service. some get regulated to get a more even shot count but then the R10 would out perform being a bottle fed pcp and many find those extra shots 160/180 compaired to the AA 70/80 plus and i think same for the HW better say for rat shooting as on some nights i shot over 100 pellets with my R10 and its very accurate but then the other 2 as are equal. for me the HW came out to heavy, the AA ideal, the R10 just a fraction more than the AA was a super rifle. recently i decided to change my R10 to a dedicated .22 for rat shooting and got a FX vermy again well engineered and light and very accurate with a red torch fitted, my .22 AA S410 does not get much use now anyway like i always say you pays your money and takes your choice.

    Had both the R10 and HW100
    The only thing I would say is I don't think the BSA build quality is as good as the HW and I will leave it as simple as that :)
    I have had a S410 and currently have a S510 and I would consider the Air Arms better equivalents to the HW100 than the R10

    I have tried a few r10s, mk1, mk2, and loved every pellet I put them!

    I know we shouldn't buy guns by how they look, and more for fuctionalaty, but the r10 with a huub shroud, is a dam sexy bit of gear!!!!

    Three of my best rifles over the last two years have been R-10's. All flawless in operation and when I do my part as accurate as any of the other rifles I owned which is quite a few including high end.

    The only fair one way to put it is they seem to be a bit inconsistent coming out the factory. Ive had 2, both with problems.
    I wouldn't go back to bsa. My mate has had one 2 years now without a single problem.
    i do agree the hw100 is a better made rifle.

    Thanks all, sure is a lovely rifle, as you have all suggested I've had a gander on the search and have found the information I require there so mods can close this if they so wish.
