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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    Here’s a link to Ronnie Sunshine’s Youtube video showing the gun and it’s trigger action which has to be reset for each shot.

    Not a bad looking rifle, ok for a bit of fun / plinking, looks smart with a scope on, true test to come to find out how accurate its is and the repetabilty of it.

    He does use some offensive language, but this shows the trigger in action.

    The fact that he evidently can't manage to pronounce the name correctly hardly fills me with confidence :facepalm:

    The need to reset the trigger mech looks utterly gash tbh, but on the up-side it does indeed look like the gun cycles itself rather than having the thoroughly nasty double-action trigger mech of the MCX.

    Knowing the importers I suspect their attempts to slow down the rate of fire is probably a complete, cheap-as-chips lashup; so have probably just removed the trigger removed the trigger return spring..

    Tbh I'm almost enthused from the perspective of a viable practical / rapid-fire comp rifle (with the trigger fixed); on the other hand it's still going to be grossly-overpriced monkey-metal Rambo-wannabe walt fodder that I'd be more than a little bit embarrassed to own..

    I suspect the accuracy (or lack thereof) will be the deal-killer for many - will be interesting to see how bad it is once a few more tests get out.

    That's a pretty poor effort from Sig.

    The trigger looks awful, but not only that the bottle conversion is no better than some after market efforts. They could have at least tried to integrate it into the stock so it looks like the original. Zero effort there at all.

    Makes me suspect that the internals are similarly poorly upgraded.

    Some internal shots from the MPX , the one i owned was apart almost on a weekly basis , my concern with the virtus is if it uses the same componants/internals as the MPX /MCX, as well as leaks from the same two areas there was a striker type item that ended up working its way loose very often.

    I have to agree with you, I really wanted them to prove everyone wrong with this and actually make a decent PCP but it seems it's just as we all suspected.

    Shot one in RFD
    Grey finish.exterior build looks good.
    Clearly powerful .22 pcp

    The plastic Sig belt mag is going to be annoying.
    The trigger reset is odd but manageable.

    Not for me and around £500.

    My Crosman SBR is half the price and much more fun.
    But to be fair it doesn't shoot .22 pellets.

    Shot one today at my hft club. OK, I do not like the military look, but lots will, It balances nicely, the trigger is fine and accuracy with the supplied open sites is fine. If it is accurate with a decent optic on it then why not. My only gripe is that because the internals are alloy then I do not think it would be reliable long term, as the trigger and mag indexing parts will eventually wear.
    Pete.

    Ha ha, It was a young lady called Elise. She was kept very busy this morning as everyone wanted to have a go. I quite like it as a shooter, but do not like the military look personally.

    Usual utter crapolla from Sig.
    How they are not embarrassed putting their name on some of this junk is beyond me.
    And the rfd trigger mod is just more nanny state cobblers.

    Surely
    Surely that would be any gun? Plenty of modern airguns could be seen as a dangerous weapon
