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.

    Hi All
    Ive been looking for a ratty gun for a while and it looks like I'll be buying a MK1 BSA Superstar in .25. Does anyone have any info on these guns? Experiences, mods, preferred pellets etc?

    Mac i have 2 Superstars one .177 the other .22 but only pellets i use are jsb they go well in both guns i love mine i like to shoot them more than the pcp i have . If you remove the stock at any time , secure the pins holding trigger together with tape because they fall out easy.I would try Daystate and Bisly Magnums. It may you will have to use what you can get in .25.

    Thanks for the info Old 'Un. Im looking forward to seeing what a .25 can do. Ive heard they pack quite a punch up to 25 yds...What sort of weight pellet should I use in a sub 12ft gun. Ive seen some .25 pellets at 16gr and some at 31.....

    My Superstar is .22 but I found because of the loading slide they prefer longer pellets so I'd go for Bisley Superfields for a first go.

    You ideally want something around the 18-20grn mark. I have a BSA 635 which has a tight .25 barrel (6.33) I'm not sure if the Superstars used the same though - but Superfields were very accurate.

    Sure it's a superstar and not a 635 magnum? I have a 635 which I rarely use but it does seem to like bisley superfields, tight fit though.

    635 is a break yes. Not sure about the superstar. Bsa springers all look very much alike to me until you get a close look.
