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.

    Hello, I'm new to the forum and looking to buy a pcp rifle, I have had a springer for years. it's between HW100 T K carbine, BSA superten mk3 bullbarrel and Air Arms s410 or s510. I know they all have there strengths and weaknesses but I would like to hear your opinions of which is best or are there better, At the moment it seems the HW100 is probably the best as I am left handed and it has an ambidextrous stock, Cheers.

    Thanks Steve, Handled both AA s410 and BSA superten today, Must say I was impressed by the quality and feel of the AA s410, If the shop had a left hand thumbhole in stock I might well have bought one!

    What do you think of the weight of the HW100 Comp? Why do you prefer .177?

    Well, its a tad heavy, but Im a fit lad!!! I have a bipod on, and tend to stalk/hide, or stick it out the car window!

    I find the flatter trajectory of the .177 makes just over 1 mildot difference from 15 yards, to 30 yards or so, therefore helps cover my inability to rangefind!!!
    Not done a lot with it yet,... but it performs superb on the range, and on targets at home, & at work......I am very happy with it..

    Cheers, Fred

    OK Jeff, got mine with the rifle, second hand,... its a Zero Options 3-9x50, cant tell you anything about it, other than it seems pretty good, if a bit big. Cant find anything about it online, and no paperwork with it. As long as the pellets keep hitting the crosshairs, I will stick with it!!! :up:

    hiya mate, welcome!

    as you can see from my name i have a bsa super 10, its a .22 and its the bull barrel. I love it, I love the weight of it, il ove the feel of it, but then saying that im a big guy so i can get away with the weight! lol :)


    i took a friend of mine to the airgun centre the other day toget himself a rifle, he was very keen on the bsa t10 tactical, looks ok on paper but not my cup of tea in the flesh. I managed to perswade him into having a look at the AA s510, as soon as he held it that was it couldnt put it down and i dont blame him what a sexy gun, ended up getting it.

    one othere thing mate they BSA have stoped makingthe super 10, app they are going tobe bringing outa new rifle... ? who knows!

    my advise... go for the s510, and get it in .22, leave the .177 forthe girls!:rolleyes:

    Well it's down to two rifles, hw100kt or airarms s410, Seen both of them today and would have bought the hw100kt, it had a feel of quality about it but i'm not too sure about the stock, Never though it would be so hard to decide, it's just the thought of splashing out £600+ and making the wrong decision!

    Well, Eventually settled on the HW100KT and must say i'm very impressed with it, certainly is well engineered and the silencer is extremely quiet. It was a close thing between it and the AA S410. Thanks to everyone for the advice.

    .. I had every confidence that you would make the right choice!!!

    Seriously, its one heck of a gun, but so is the other, down to personal choice, I'm sure you would not swap it for owt else, in a very short while!!

    Cheers, Fred
