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.

  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.

    Yep I have one on my s200.First thing you notice is the length,especially with the sunshade on.If it's for an underlever you may struggle with the loading port access,let me know and I'll try it next to my hw97.The scope covers supplied are useless,take them off before you start.The front one wont allow you to use the AO as it catches the barrel were the hinge is,and the back one just keeps flipping open.Very fine ret,which I like but you may find it difficult in woody situations,the windage adjustment on mine is back to front somehow,turn it right and it goes left,stupid allen key locking turrets that are a bit awkward to engage the "click" to adjust them.Clear optics and good zoom though,better than richter,hawke and nikko stirling that I have had in the same price bracket with better magnification option.I would buy them again despite their shortcomings,for the price they are a decent scope,no problems with zeroing or shifting POI,I usually leave them on x7 anyway.They do the job,target or hunting,why spend hundreds on a scope that is only as accurate as the shooter,I have a viper on my s400 and although you can't compare the two in any way I can still hit what I aim at,most of the time with either scope.Fast delivery as well from JSR.

    I have one, came a rifle I got and to be fair it's a pretty good scope for the money. The turrets are annoying because you need to Allan key them before your can make adjustments but that's the only thing I can knock on it

    Got one on my Brocock Enigma, came with 75mm sunshade and flip up covers, you do have to lock and unlock the turrets with an allen key but it doesn't move zero point
    so not an issue on a calm day. even on full magnification it doesn't grey out or loose focus either and even after buying quality mounts it only cost £75 (mounts were £25)
    It will zero to anything within shooting range for an air rifle. I have gone right down to about 8 metres and kept in full focus. If they had 2 at the time i would have got another one just for a backup.

    Yep, as you can see from all the comments, they are real good value. As already pointed out, they are long, particularly with the shade on and also not light in weight. But they do have good optics and a fine reticle. worth a look if youre not sure.

    So do you have to slacken the turrets off with an allen key before you can adjust elevation or windage and then lock them back up?
