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.

    Very little in mate, to be honest the belita sounded a tad more high pitched than the standard length, both tested using pellets!!!

    I would choose the belita, just because of the compact size:)

    Probably the pellet strike that did the spooking, a mate of mine uses a 100x28mm UK Neil silencer on his scorpion,

    Rarely has an empty bag, and its not the most silent of silencers!!!

    Is the rifle being used with just the shroud?

    The addition of a belta, a swift stumpy, or even the a&m titch would make it things pretty silent, keeping the length down as well:)

    I don't think there can be much difference between silencers, all things being equal.
    They're probably as good as it will get unless someone comes up with some new technology or technique to put in them. As long as it's a well designed silencer it will be as quiet as the next well designed silencer.
    In lieu of the introduction of super sound absorbent hair curlers or whatever, I would look at making them bigger as the only way to up performance.

    ive got a standard hugget shroud and silencer on my airwolf and a belita shroud and silencer on my r10 and in my opinion the standard one is quieter. they are both very quiet but the standard just has the edge. I also have a swift stubby on a bsa scorpion which is very quiet for such a small thing.

    I have a marksman silencer and although very quiet it makes the rifle look too long and slightly unbalanced in my opinion

    I put put a Hugget shroud and silencer on my Mk4 and there was a marked difference to the Daystate one that It replaced plus I think it looks good.

    Short barrel = more air = more bang = more mod

    Long barrel = less air = less bang = less mod ;)

    If some of the blast is redirected back down the inside of the shroud, it gives the silencer an easy job with the rest of the blast.

    On my ultra I have a vented barrel extension, and a shroud with vents at the breech, very effective,

    and all for £20:)
