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.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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.

    Does anyone know if you can get unofficial magazines to fit the Rowan Engineering adapter? Like a plastic one or something instead of the dear ones?

    It would be nice to have say 6 mags for going out with as that covers as many shots as I can get from a fill. But at £40 a pop from Rowan engineering seems abit dear. Is there any cheaper unofficial ones that will work?

    Cheers

    Rowan kit will be copyright so would have to be a different kit, Problem with that I don't know of anyone else that makes them . I've bit the bullet and bought another, Although they are a very good peice of kit they are expensive! Cost about £43 with the postage.

    Just wondered if anyone had made something that would fit it. Reproducing it in plastic would be cheap enough

    I've got to say the Rowan kits are wonderful! Even though you have to index manually they are brilliantly built and slick to use.

    I know they are expensive but I don't think I would buy a copy mag (cheap Chinese) as this hurts companies like Rowan and might hold them back from developing more lines in the future.

    So what you are really saying is:
    Thank you Rowan for investing your expertise, time and money into making the system - but I want to shaft you and buy a ripped off one from someone else who has criminally copied your work.

    How would YOU feel if someone did that to YOU?

    Umm no I'm saying it's a very simple design that doesn't need to cost £40. If someone has taken the time to make an alternative mag for less money it would be good.

    You don't just put one brand of product on an air rifle, you mix and match to suit your budget and requirements.

    If one company has a monopoly it discourages innovation.

    It maybe a simple design but the cost covers machinery (CNC and software is costly) , marketing and someones wages.
    Rowan produced these mags by investing their time and money and shouldn't be ripped off by some cheap copies.

    Would be nice if got a small discount for multiple buys though, I don't think he means a cheap chineese copy just an alternative even if only half as good as the rowan! I know in most cases you get what you pay for but as a returning customer or even as a member of this forum say a small 5% discount would be appreciated.

    Why? Don't AA Mags cost similar money to Rowans?

    Aren't they like £25? And there 10shot and there auto indexing. Seems worth while to me?

    Loosing money when buying the new gun and having to buy a single shot adaptor if you go back to wanting single shot..IMO not worth it,I used the Rowan mags for ages and found them to be just as good as the auto indexing mags but it would be good if you got 2 mags instead of 1.

    swings and roundabouts,

    so lets say costs you £60apprx extra for an s410 with 2 mags and ss adapter compared to a s400 with 2 rowan mags inlcuding system.

    just depends on your preference...

    (based on a standard s410 being £100 more than standard s400 2nd hand)

    just trying to give options..... if you dont mind indexing yourself with less shots then your saving yourself £60 apprx
