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.

    Thank you.

    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.

    Finally after 42 sleeps it’s here and I can’t wait to get that Airmax on, sighted up and ready to fire! Yes, I collected my brand new Brocock Compatto Sniper HR in .22 yesterday from Countryman of Derby.

    Can I give a very big shoutout and thank you to the guys at Countryman who not only gave me the best deal I could find on the gun and scope but were extremely helpful while I chose a moderator (Weihrauch) and other bit and pieces. Not only great people but a great shop too! Thanks again guys.

    Happy shooting, if it’s as accurate as my Mk1 Compatto (but without the air leaks from the fill valve) then you will have a good’n. A lot say use Bizmags but mine suits JSB Jumbo 5.51’s best and I’ve tried a lot of different brands and sizes over the last 18mths that I’ve had it. Enjoy

    It's a nice design that stock. When I have shouldered one it always feels comfy whether I have had a jacket or jumper or a shirt on. It's the shape of rifle we should all be shooting now it is the future......

    I’ve always liked the look of the Compatto but when I shouldered one at the show in February it just seem to fit me like a glove. I’m not a lover of the small bull pups but this being a semi bull pup felt just right. My only hope now is that it shoots as good as it looks

    Well I never liked the R10 until I tried one. I didn't like the look of the 'wood ones' so never gave them a thought. I liked the feel of the Compato and the Bantam, but I wanted something more conventional as my primary rifle. If Solware hadn't the blue one on the rack I would probably be shooting a Gold Star now in grey. (I like the red, white, and blue ones but I wonder if I could live with it, and the 'wood' Gold Stars look awful and I have yet to see one with a nice stock.)

    That’s exactly the same reason I bought my Compatto, my only gripe is the picatinny rail is not comfortable in the hand when not using a bipod, I have seen covers for them but I’m not paying £25 for one, I’m in the process of trying to fashion one out of some wood to fit.
