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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    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.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    Looks like the 6 x 32 AO/IR from J S ..Chinese made with a decent image that can focus right down to 5 yards or closer in right conditions.It makes a good light weight compact ratting scope on a budget.Well reasonable really the IR is a bit glarey & some have a thick reticle.

    I have the 3-9x32 version of that scope on a TX, it will focus down to 3yds, never lost its zero, well made, would not hesitate to buy another, its is a JSR GunTuff, as said nice little scope for little money. Don't be put off by the made in China, as most budget scopes, and some expensive ones, are made in China, I have a BSA made in china. Atb, Bob. PS. As landymick says, the ret is on the thick side, but I got used to that, and don't find it a problem.

    Cheers for the response guys and yes it goes down to 3yrds and I love it!
    Checking it out whilst changing the setting both front and back and I'm not disappointed!
    Nice and clear :D also in the picture both red/green where set to the brightest, they can be lowered to be more comfortable on the eyes :)

    I also agree I'd be more than happy to have another for my xs78 and a x50 version! Feels nice and solid to!

    Cheers, Greg.

    I just looked online and found the scope using the name you both said, it cost £51 and well worth the price! My other scope same spec but by SMK with no red/green illuminated feature cost me £29... Oh well what's done is done! In future I'll be buying another one of these but in x50 :)

    One other question I have is about silencers, the one that come with the gun I just noticed it has some pellet clipping damage inside "it has cone baffles inside" I think its been previously damage before being used on the gun as it shoots perfectly accurate.
    I have tried to open it but its a Allen key end hole on the muzzle end and kinda rounded and stuck tight.. So I was curious is it OK to use a .22 silencer on a .177 rifle? I have just tested it and its nice and quiet still just as the .177 one was.

    Cheers, Greg.

    Most moderators are universal between .177 & .22 sometimes you need to check mods for .25 use.You will be fine with yours.

    This is the one I got for the TX. View attachment 99797 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Illuminat...ng_ShootingSports_ET&var=&hash=item35d0caec77 As I said, Would buy another. As to your Q about the silencer, most are made for .177 & .22, it will be fine. One of the ones I use on .177 air rifle, was designed for a .22 powder burner Bob.

    Cheers guys, I'll use my .22 silencer for now as I don't like the look of them baffles... If I could open it I will change them out for some rollers and felt but its stuck tight and it will damage easily with it being alloy :(

    I just found that guys eBay page also :) I'll be buying from him in future.

    Cheers, Greg.

    I did the hair curler & job, on a soudbiter, The wife was not happy, when she caught me cutting up her curlers. Had a few things from JSR via the bay, with no problems, they do have a web site, but not all the things they sell via the bay, are on their site. Bob.

    Haha! I bet she wasn't pleased bob I know my Mrs would go nuts if I touch her beauty products!
    My BSA silencer for my .22 has alloy internals with an outer felt padding and works a tread so I'll just use that for now until I get the .177 can open :)

    Cheers, Greg.

    That's easier said than done bob... One thing I learnt with my Mrs is never borrow,move or touch her high heels & beauty products! They are sacred lol! It will be more wiser and safer to visit the local pound land :)

    Cheers, Greg.

    Cheers, Greg.
