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.

    'Behaviour

    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.

    I have been toying with the idea of making my own NV set up to use on my Air Arms 410F with MTC Viper scope for rabbits and rats but the more i read the more confused and indecisive i get :confused:, so now i am thinking of getting either the NS50 or the Nite Eye NE500. I am leaning more towards the NE500 as it has more range so i can use it to help me spot them aswell. Any suggestions or feedback about any of the units would be appreciated Many Thanks Jason

    There are several people in exactly the same situation as you, diy is easy and much cheaper for similar performance. have a look at the replies on some of the other threads and if it's not quite what you need then post details of what you want to do and how much you're prepared to spend, what your skill level is then someone will be able to give you advice on what parts would suit you.

    As terry says, diy will get you similar performance for a good deal less! I've taken advice and and tips from lots of people and there builds, and am on my way "hopefully" to a semi professional looking scopeless system for a lot less than I could of ever afforded for a bought system.

    Well mounting can be simple as plug n play

    Pulsar DSA £30 ish http://www.uttings.co.uk/p107986-pulsar-day-scope-adaptor-for-challenger-gs-79041/#.UwHMj_l_uHc

    Camera E700 £70 (12 or 16mm lens ) http://www.sure24.co.uk/kpc-e700pub...rd-lens-1-3-700-tvl-30mm-sq-12v-dc-internal-1

    Flo plas 40mm acess plug this is 5 off pack £4 you may get a one off at a local plumb supply (must be Flo plas brand) http://www.screwfix.com/p/floplast-solvent-weld-40mm-access-plug-black-pack-of-5/65881

    Optional 40mm Flow plas 40mm coupler Again a 5 off pack £4 http://www.screwfix.com/p/floplast-solvent-weld-40mm-straight-coupling-black-pack-of-5/76761


    you may be able to bypass the DSA and save £30 with a few bits of the 40mm tube etc
    the E700 is probably cheaper from China but a long wait ( i prefer a UK supplier )

    hi mate, I use a mtc scope on my setup the cameras mounted using silicon tube. the pic of that rig looks neat and tidy. where did you buy the camera adapters from? also what size did you need. cheers.:up: p.s. would that housing work on a bullet camera?
