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.

    Hey everyone,

    First post on this forum and as it goes... it's about my first air rifle. I am going to opt for an SMK QB76 Deluxe as my first gun. I think that I would like a magazine for it, as well as a scope. My only problem is... I just can't find a suitable magazine that fits... anywhere! Can somebody please show me some different magazines that would fit this model please. I also have no idea about scopes... So if somebody has any advice on that area (regarding how much I should pay for a good one etc.) that would be appreciated!

    Finally, valuing everybody's opinion on here, do you think that my chosen rifle would be suitable for hunting small game such as pheasant, wood-pigeon, rabbit etc. in a humane way?

    Cheers!

    Btw, i'm going for a .22

    Are you sure it's a QB76 and not a QB78. If so it is ok for vermin shooting. Welcome to the forum also. atb Paul.

    To be honest I'd choose a 2nd hand springer over a QB78. Don't get me wrong they are fun rifles, but once you've had it a while, have messed about with co2 caplets, and have realised that without taking it apart and polishing the internals it is a bit rough, you'll wish you'd bought something else. I did exactly the same as you and regretted it.
    What is your purchase budget?

    Thanks for the advice!
    I guess I want to spend as little as possible, maybe £130.. but to be honest; if I can get a rifle that will last, and is possibly not SMK then maybe £200. I am putting quality over price though, so I don't want to spend little and get something useless.

    Here's a manual indexing mag.
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/XS78-79-M...Hunting_ShootingSports_ET&hash=item54073516a3
    There is a fella called Lukas from Czechoslovakia who makes and sells self indexing ones on Ebay now and again. There is further info on this mag on UKCAF, but you will need to sign up to view. It will also allow you to buy one direct and cheaper. You will also find out what can be done with these rifles.
    I have a TH78 in .22 and an AR2079A (non SMK imported target XS79) in .177 which has been HPA'd. They do need fettling out of the box if you want to hunt with one, as they are normally down on power. The .177 is far harder to bring up to full power. This is why it was converted to air. Plus I had the air tank to fill from already. The .22 really need a chrono when tuning, because they will go over.
    I use mine regularly and have no complaints. I also own springers and a Superten so I have the choice not to.... but I do.
