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.

    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.

    Having a knock about with my Elan at some tin cans in the barn when the rain came and my nephew and I got into it about the best parts of air rifles made by manufactures over the years. Him being only 16 I'd got a head start on him, but I thought I'd put to the forum on there thoughts.

    So if you could design a gun using any parts from any gun including stocks and sights what is the ultimate rifle you could build PCP or springer, for hunting or target shooting.

    My ultimate hunting monster would be,

    Theoben Rapid Mrk 1 action, using a ansutchz barrel in .20 cal, a nut shot moderator all fitted into a BSA R10 stock with a small bottle.
    On top I'd slip a new thermal image scope of Scotch Country.

    Andrew.

    I'd have to say my HW100 FSB in .177 is shaping up to be the ultimate rifle out of the box.

    For a start it would be a Rifle with a Walther barrel, single shot. Nickel action PCP with a proper man sized bolt action. Regulated, threaded for a moderator, 100 shot capacity and to top it off a Gary Cane laminated adjustable target stock.

    You would then be looking at a R.A.W. ! I actually prefer the bolt action to the side lever, but I dare say I could get used to it.

    I still feel the ideal rife for me has already been built, the original BTAS Elan (NOT the ginb stocked version! shudder:D)all I would change would be the silener in the form of a full Hugget shroud and mod and nice wood is all I could ask from an airgun for hunting, as I like them short light and pointable, but well enough engineered to last a lifetime.

    Apart from that these would probably be my second up although I do prefer proper side cocking bolt actions to side levers, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QeoBxqYEBQ8 , I like the rake of that grip on the Raw rifles looks lovely and the twin thumb rest look very DS mk4, very nice, cool scope too.

    I think my Hw100 is not far off the BTAS elan without going into thousands of pounds, if it wasnt for shot count so Im going to look at that soon, but I couldnt ever add a bottle to it, so Im probably going to add the adjustable hammer matching valve and hammer spring set and a titanium tube, then maybe a full hugget system, it will them be up there with the BTAS Elan in my eyes, but it will probably have cost as much by the time Im done:eek:.:D

    Scope wise just a nice light weight 25mm tubed jobbie like a lightstream or leupold.
