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.

    Hello Every one :)
    So Iv been looking to get back into shooting again & after much looking around I decided to get a springer, then a Co2 & now a PCP and I finally found a deal going for a Logun S-16 full barrel shrouded/silencer for £300.
    That's for the gun in its orig box with 1x doubled MAG, a full bottle & to sweeten the deal since it doesn't come with a scope he's offered me the choice of any scope in his shot @half price!

    Now my only doubt is that I have only seen this gun but not heard much about it.. I had a good hold of it and it feels nice in my arms & a nice weight "bottle sock/Cover felt odd at first but no big deal" also had a shot or 2 :)
    So is there any chaps out there that have one or owned one that can share their experiences with me? does it have any pro's or cons?

    Cheers, Greg.

    Anyone who starts a sentence with the word "so" should be shot. Other than that I would advise that you shoot a few pellets with it and if you like it go for it, if not, keep looking. Either way happy shooting :)

    Hi Greg,have you had a look on the s16 forum www.loguns16.co.uk has all the info you will need.I nearly bought one as a rat gun but was told they are a bit heavy,the best thing to do is handle it and shoot it and see if you like it.

    Let's say they're an "acquired taste"..

    Personally I wouldn't touch one with a barge pole since IMO / IME they're:

    - Heavy
    - Ugly / unnecessarily aggressively styled
    - Ergonomically poor
    - Blighted by poor spares availability
    - Not particularly well-designed
    - Not particularly well-built or finished
    - Prone to jamming
    - Prone to exhaust valve seat damage
    - Difficult to strip - meaning repairs area pain / require specialist attention and associated cost


    Your money, but I'd certainly give it a wide berth ;)

    I had a fettled one for about 6 weeks. Nice to shoot but an absolute pig to lug around, the ability to load multiple pellets up the breech was a major design flaw, looked like something a Stormtrooper would be comfortable with.

    Sold with no regrets whatsoever.

    Thanks for sharing you're opinions on this rifle guys.
    I think I'll have a pop into the shop again tomorrow and take another look at this rifle again although it seems the more I ask about this rifle the more bad things I hear about it :( few love it but more seem to hate it!

    Hello Yorkshireshoot, my budget is £400 and I'm looking for a decent gun for shooting vermin "permission pending" & I will also be joining a local gun range, multi shot would be great but I would be happy either way :)

    Cheers, Greg.

    Hi, for your budget you have many options second hand. Best advice I can give is try as many as you can, and find which feels most comfortable, unless you are comfortable with a rifle you are wasting your time.

    For that kind of budget and requirements you would prob be best looking at an ultra or maybe a second hand 400/410 I'd say . Of course you'll need to be filling the gun so will need another £100+ for charging equipment . Or for £400 you could get a decent spring set up with a ok scope bag pellets etc . As stated I'd have a good hands on look at a few options and keep eyes open on the sales section here mate .

    It might be a good idea to pop along to Bob dunkleys(woodview) have a look in the shop and also talk to the members on the range,they will probably let you try theirs and you can see what suits you. Your more than welcome to try my r10,ultra and scorpion one weekend just pm me

    That's probably the first gun I would not recommend mate to be honest.

    Its all been said already so with good foundation give it a wide birth and think yourself lucky you didn't make a £300 mistake.

    The best logun was actually an FX designed gun with a few changes, and that was the logun axsor, they can be bought for the same kind of money if you look around and can perform as serious as you like, I had an early axsor and an Fx2000 and they are basically the same gun and I would recommend them to anyone wanting a first pcp, as they are dead easy to strip and maintain and will shoot as well as any Airarms s410, that is another gun that can be bought for pittance and outshoot anything on the market, both will outshoot any s16 anyway over a good seasons worth of hunting.

    I bought a s/h s16 a few weeks ago .... apparently its been sorted and serviced. it's a brilliant gun , very accurate . for me the only downside is the weight ..... biggest plus is how quiet it is .

    Whatever you choose make sure you can try it before you buy it. Most decent pcps are very accurate and much of the choice is personal preference and gun fit. Don't overlook second hand sales at gunshops, there can be the odd bargain to be had. I know the brocock concept can be bought new for 280 quid, thats worth a look.
