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.

Question List All .20 Cal Airgun Options

    OK, leaving out the second hand market (nothing personal Rapid owners!) what are the options for buying a new .20 cal airgun in the UK? I think it has the potential to be the perfect combination of pellet weight and diameter / trajectory for a sub 12ft lbs airgun. But apart from what Weihrauch has to offer, both springer and pcp, are there any other options available even if special order?

    Thinking about it, what are your thoughts on what Weihrauch offer as well. I do wish they would up their game and finally offer a bottle version of the HW100. I might reconsider paying over £1000 for one if they did. If more .20 airguns were available to to the UK / low ft lbs limit countries the selection of pellets available would surely soon follow.

    Of course someone offering / specializing in full .20 cal conversion kits (including a couple of magazines) for current available airguns could really rake it in without the need to charge rip off prices! Of course the rules of supply and demand will always apply.

    Well the hw100 bottle conversions are coming. Thread on here somewhere about them. Apart from the hw and a few daystate do I'm not sure who do .20 calibre as an option. I have a hw100kt laminate in .20 and love the calibre.

    This conversion is going to include stock options too though. Makes it a bit of an easier option.

    A Fire Extinguisher is very useful @ 950fps

    Daystate & some Weihrauch springers off the top of my head, shame you don't want secondhand as that cuts out Theoben as you said and also Falcon.

    Don't know if there are any Regals out there new, but sometimes they come up secondhand.

    as far as 20 cal being the perfect pellet.. nah :) Dont get me wrong, I prefer my 20 to most other offerings, but its not what a lot of people want it to be. Its flatter than a 22, and comparable to a heavy 177, and wind is less than a 177, but its not a world beater. takes practice to get the hang of, and if you go back to 22 or 177, it can throw you out on both (thats my experience- shot 177 today and missed half of it till I consciously thought about calibre. Weirdly, I dont get this going 177- 22.). Would love to have a 100 and a Rapid in 20, but the price on the 100 is just stupid now, and rapids dont come upas much as they used to.
