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.

    Afternoon all,

    Are their any known accuracy issues with the 44? I know the 110 had one when it first launched but not heard of much regarding the 44

    I bought a secondhand one from my rfd - first shoot yesterday and I had 3” groups at 8yards!!! Sideways pellets https://uploads.my fingers-cdn.com/20190220/cac49f1a477399fc0d006541e8975817.jpg

    It’s such a great pistol but I was gutted

    Checked the scope and then a gentle shake showed up that the mod was clipping with loads of shavings, took it off to see that it isn’t straight through inside...

    Back to rfd who swapped the mod for me and tried in on the range but no joy

    Took the mod off and scope off and still not great.

    It’s being sent to Hull cart - rfd countryways great as always - but wondered if any known issues?!

    Matt

    Not an issue as such, but when I shot one the mag was awful to get in and out - but it shot well I must say!

    Hope it gets sorted buddy, but your claim to fame is a sideways pellet silhouette lol - I’d blow that bit up and have it as your forum picture;)

    I haven’t come across any but this was mad. Must have been dropped or something...

    Fingers crossed for a nice fixed one soon!!! They do seem lovely, whilst the mag is clunky I don’t mind as the rest is gorgeous

    A mate of mine had the same problem as you have got Matt and his problem was being caused by the moderator but if you have swapped yours over and its still doing it then I haven't got a clue what the problem is but hopefully Hull Cartridge can sort it out for you . . :up:

    I’m sure they will, just a ball ache and a wait....

    The mod was full of slithers of lead... holding it up you could see it wasn’t straight. Not sure how it passed QC

    It was certainly better without the mod but still nothing amazing - not £600 amazing

    Quite possibly! I didn’t inspect that fully but either that or a poorly finished rifling perhaps, or loose barrel inside?!

    Either way it’s not right buddy, and you’ll have it returned as good as new

    No problems with mine
    To be honest it’s the best pistol I’ve used so far
    Well worth the price
