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.

    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 was given an unexpected £50 for Christmas and I had been thinking of getting a bipod for my Ultra SE. I'd been thinking of getting a cheapo' one from China off E-Bay, but I thought that with the unexpected money (and as I try and support my local gunshop as much as possible) I went and spent £49 on a fixed Deben bipod.

    I just felt a bit cheated as when I fitted it at home the first thing I noticed was a big sticker with the words 'made in China' on it!! I could have got the Chinese one and saved myself nearly £30, they look identical and probably made in the same place as there can't be that many bipod factories about.

    It does look good and purposeful on the Ultra though, just need a silencer next, I may order that online though.....

    Where bi pods are concerned Harris is the way to go, the Deben's aren't bad but not a patch on the Harris ;)

    Hi, I have a couple of Bipods and rate the Deben one better than the 'Rock something crap' other one. Both are made in China. I feel the same about buying online, however I enjoy meeting people at my local gunshop and am aware that'll disappear if everyone starts buying everything online. I bet if you say you're not happy with your purchase they'll take it back and I bet if you buy online you're stuffed!
    You did the right thing buying from your local dealer IMO.

    Another recommendation for Matt's silencers from me, too. The one he made for me looks and works great.

    All my bi pods are Harris, a few years ago when buying a rifle i wanted a bi pod too, they'd sold out of Harris in the size i wanted.
    They had a Deben, shopkeeper said they're ok for the money, ok i said i'll give it a go, big mistake, on third hunting session the tension screw came loose and some of the parts fell off into the darkness, got it exchanged and the replacement started to do much the same.

    Got a refund, went elsewhere and got a Harris, sorted, i have 8 or 9 bi pods all Harris and they are the best. The other stuff including Deben is inferior build and quality, if yours has been ok that's good but i wouldn't touch one again ;)

    No bipod, use your hand and a shooting rest, spring powered rifles do not fire well when used with a bipod!

    I had a Deben too, the rubber pads that protect the stock came off, were glued back on, then the pin that attaches to the QD stud came out, repaired by the RFD, then the damned spring that attaches to the leg came off when I was lowering the leg and smacked me in the knuckles. That piece of Chinese crap was lobbed in the bin! That was within 6 weeks!

    I bought my first Harris shortly afterwards. The difference in the materials used is amazing, the Harris feels quality, the Deben feels like excrement! I have since had over 2 years of use from that Harris, no problems at all, not one. All the other bipods I own are now Harris, simple thing is the quality, Harris warranties last a lifetime, Deben do not!
