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.

    Both highly rated rifles, I'd day the logun would suit your needs more and going by rifles iv used and own by the designer of the mk2, id say it would be awesome.

    Can I say have you considered a ripley Hogan elite? Worth a look at least....

    Both guns are really nice. The Daystate is a Daystate, high end top quality. But there is something sexy about Logan's. would be a hard choice for me. Would have to go down to which felt best in the shoulder.

    Modern daystates are excellent rifles but in my opinion the Logun is a far nicer gun, feels better on the bolt action and the stock on the Mk2 thumb hole is a Gary Cane stock as standard, very comfortable.

    I might be biased as I own a mk2 and have tried the newer daystates and while the accuracy is there, it's got way more parts to go wrong (judging by the posts on here of late it can happen).

    The Logun is a far more simple gun but as long as the inline mag is set up properly it will work flawlessly. To me it's a much better looking gun than any new daystate, they are trying too hard to be fancy but without thinking about how they look as a whole.

    What regulations do you have in Egypt?

    I would say go with the one you have the best back up service for - if you have a Daystate dealer nearby, then that is your answer. If you only have a Logun dealer.....but before you make your mind up from the answers on here, send Simon Atkins (The Airgun Doctor) an email and ask his advice about the Logun. He spends his life fixing them and has made a good living from having to take them apart and put them back together again!:D He will tell what their pitfalls are and provide helpful advice to keep it runniing - especially as you are a bt far away to pop in to him for a coffee and ask first hand.

    Yes, the Logun Mk1 is actually called the Logun Rifle. The Mk2 is called the MkII Professional. People often get them mixed up with the S16 as there is a Mk1 and Mk2 version of that.

    I own a good few Daystates but out of the two guns mentioned, i think the Logun would be the better option ;)

    Well, I took the liberty of asking for you. The answer from The Airgun Doctor was that the Logun is a pretty good rifle, but I told him what the question was and he IMMEDIATELY said it would have to be the Daystate, for the simple fact that Logun spares are no longer available - he actually has most of what is left and that isn't very much. Seals and o rings are no problem, but other parts have to be hand made to keep the guns running.

    I was going to make the point that Logun had done an impression of a lead filled penguin - ie sunk!

    As with many things that Jim Hogan gets involved with..Ripley Elite only lasted a year and never actually got to the point where Highland Outdoors were going to market them.

    That's a shame as imo the Logun is the better of the two but, there are much better guns than both ;)

    This is why I suggested the elite as it's great value for money and there are loads of spares etc.....

    The only real spares you might need for the Logun is a new valve stem when the old one wears out eventually, but that's not a problem as anyone with a Lathe can make one in 5 mins for a few pence. Everything else is over spec and built like a tank.
