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.

    'Behaviour

    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.

    Well Grumps must retract and have stricken from the minuets of the meeting the statement that the Huggett shroud and silencer made SOD ALL difference to the muzzle report . Because i had it out in the field . Oh that and my Air Ranger :rolleyes: and the rabbits and Rats have noticed a big difference . Dont get me wrong the standard DS kit is top notch . Toytown form the forum shot the FT with me at the furnace mill and stated that it sounded like an Angel farting :rolleyes: Martin has a way with words . So Hey its nice to look at , its 3 inches shorter and that is worth it alone for me as i shoot from my 4x4 a lot and my rifle now fits on the back seat , sits on my lap and can shoot out of either window with out manoeuvrability issues :up: , So went out hunting last night , i swapped scopes so checked zero . I not chronoed the Ranger for over a year but somehow it didnt seem right and im having issues with some new optics so wander back to the truck 5 mins and zap a mag through the chrono just to be sure . 11.4 string variations not worth mentioning :up: but Dam there is no report !! there is a ringing hammer sound from the action but that has been previously masked by the report . and hey my ear is ryyyyttt next to the action . I did wonder about the relevance of the vents on the huggett but i was using a scope mounted laser designator ratting in light mist and when i took a shot at a rat there where visible swirls in the mist around every vent so they sere a purpose . to summarise and sorry for the rant but its an expensive add on . when hunting i took some ranging shots at fence posts , took some rabbits and no reaction down range , took some rats in area surrounded on 2 sides by concrete with a concrete base . All ways a resounding PHT when a shot taken at night , with the huggett Nothing but hammer noise and where every rat but the un lucky one would run i took all 3 ! Bloody good bit of British engineering and im very happy iv taken the Plunge . Grumps is hard to impress Grumps is Impressed !!!!!!!!!

    Looks nice on the rifle mate,

    The more air directed away from the muzzle then the less direct blast at your target, the same reason I vented my ultra! About a 3rd of the blast goes down the shroud, giving the selencer less work.

    Works a treat:up:

    It's difficult to get a better recommendation than your quarry hanging around to try out your new toy for themselves - just to see how it feels on the sharp end:D.

    Good one Grumps.

    looks the doggys danglers, ive been considering one for the verminator for some time, its got a hw silencer on currently and is very quiet so it would purely be for aesthetics.

    but if they are that good it could reduce what was left to just a hammer spring, im sold:up:

    Not quite as concise as the two word appraisal in the previous thread grumps.However,a positive review is always harder to give in two words,hats off to you mate for revising your opinion and glad you are pleased with it.

    Can anyone explain what a hugget shroud is? I thought the hugget was a silencer full stop. Or is there a silencer and a shroud? Has anyone got a link to a photo on line that explains it all?
