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.

    I bet Darrin will be cheaper! That doesn't mean he isn't as good, but he is realistic about things and doesn't try to ride the crest of the wave - I have great respect for JB and what he has done over the years, but he does milk it.

    XTX will not tune Super 10s anymore, so for the S10 your choice is John Bowkett!

    Don't worry, a JB tune means you get a whole new gun back!

    Edit: The following is copied off the XTX website!

    BSA SuperTen S10

    Full service of the action and regulator - No longer offered

    Thread the barrel for a silencer £35



    Repairs - contact me for a price.

    Met Darrin from XTX AIR yesterday and bought a huub shroud from him, found him very honest and reasonably priced for the work he does. My bsa is going to him soon to be reg and tuned.

    I sent my R10 to XTX, I'd be more than happy to recommend him to anyone. I've not used JB, so can't comment on his work.

    Have had both of my R10s .177 and .22 blueprinted by JB, also barrel shortening, reg upgrades, large bolt handles, shroud
    shortening and a custom reflex mod made for the .22, to keep it quite as the barrel is only 11inches long.

    Both rifles now how they where meant to be, nice smooth action and very accurate money well spent IMO, plus
    life time guarantee.

    JB is a true gent to deal with and I do believe still fills responsible for the way R10s are turned out.

    If you do decide to use JB am positive you won't be disappointed.

    Darrin will no longer shorten an R10 barrel down to less than 12". I have no idea why you'd want it that short (!) but if you do, he's not the man for the job. That said, mine's just come back from him and it's amazing. It has a Huub shroud as well as a Tench regulator, so now it shoots as good as it looks! A great chap to deal with. That said it's worth checking out workshop times for both of them! they both get pretty booked up and Mrs XTX has only just given birth the XTX-Junior, so I think Darrin's job times might be a touch longer these days! My gun was absolutely worth the wait though!

    I really don't think I am interested in shortening the barrel on any of my, I have carbines for those jobs, what's the advantage I am missing of buying a rifle then shortening the barrel ?

    New laws mean 12" is max for barrel length now I believe. I'm sure I read up on this on xtx and ratworks pages.

    Please just remember Darrin no longer tunes the Super 10! The R10 can go to either, but the Super 10 can only go to JB.
