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.

    Hi guys and gals

    I'm considering getting a huub shroud from xtx for my ultra but in all honesty I don't have a clue about them. Is it worth getting one or just have a dedicated silencer? If I do get one I will get the full length one and remove the silencer.
    So the question is - are they worth getting?

    Cheers
    Ben

    in my opinion, if you want it silenced and to stay as short as possible, then yes. they aren't quite as effective as some dedicated moderators tho. if you're not bothered about the length, then go for a Hogan decimeater - much cheaper and more effective.

    Thanks Steve. I will have a look at the hogan. Ideally would like it to be as short as possible but if the hogan works better then the length won't be a problem.

    if your going hunting remember you can get it as quiet as a wet fart but the thud when it hits your quarry will scare them all off anyway

    The huub shroud on my r10 is really quiet,certainly quiet enough to hunt no probs and has the advantage of being nice and short.I didn't know much about them before I got one fitted,but now I would certainly recommend one.

    Uk Neil makes reflex silencers that are good, not expensive and made to order.
    But a hogan decimeter are generally very good, but also they are shroud friendly, very well made and suit both blued and non blued actions

    I put a Huub shroud on my Ultra barrelled R10 and to my ears,and several people who've heard it, it's as quiet as a Weihrauch mod.

    I think we all get too hung up on the odd decibel!!

    I am currently using a homemade back venting shroud with a ukneil silencer 100mm in length. The hammer spring is more pronounced than the muzzle crack, and down range its more or less silent.

    The huub will do the job nicely, and looks dam good too. As said above, the pellet strike will be the noise that spooks them:)
