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.

    What's the tube you've used on the left of the bottom picture as I'm struggling to find a connector between the camera and scope and this looks as if it would suitable?

    Hi mate, it's a piece of Nylon rod, turned on a lathe to make a threaded connector. It screws on to my scope. Bit of a custom jobby really. Have you looked at using some silicone hose like this, it's always worked well for me before...

    The best choice will probably depend on your scope. If it has a threaded eyepiece you can usually find camera filter adapters that will fit and sometimes your camera will have a threaded lens as well so you can put together a custom adapter to suit.
    The threads used on cameras and scopes are very fine pitch and they don't have much length available either so could be fiddly to put on as there would be a real risk of cross threading - might be better on a semi-permanent installation.
    Push on fittings are simpler to use and also to make and are usually simple to move between rifles. I've not used silicone hoses but I do like the idea that it's not a rigid connection hanging off the back of the scope so accidental damage is less likely.
    Sink waste pipe and fittings, available from B&Q etc, are a good source of useful parts. The 40mm solvent straight coupling is very close to being a perfect fit on quite a few scopes and you can get inserts and reducers if required to plug your camera in. It's worth a good look around on the plumbing shelves just to see what's available, if nothing else it may give you some ideas, the fittings come in black or white. They are made of a fairly hard upvc (?) which can be machined or sanded to get a perfect fit.

    My favoured method depends on having weaver bases on the scope, maybe as part of the rings or added using a figure 8 mount. I then use the bottom half of a weaver base scope mounting ring and cut it off flat just below the ring part (I use a milling machine but a hacksaw and file would do) and then fix the bottom of the screen mount to it using epoxy plus a small screw if possible. The screen can then be removed/fitted easily - I use mounts with fixings you can do by hand. The surplus plastic on the foot can be cut back level with the mount to tidy it up.
    The screen is quite fragile so I do like to be able to remove it before the rifle goes into its case/bag.

    hodge, the way ive mounted mine is with a weaver rail scope mount. then attach the screen stand to it by glueing or drilling, cut the excess away so its the same shape as the rail and your sorted.

    Hiya Len

    Thanks! I'm using a `HD720` DVR to record now, I am building up some footage at the moment but the weather has been a big problem on a lot of fronts. Next vid will be mostly of the spotter unit that I made I think. Video of this rig in use will follow hopefully!
