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.

    How much should a good set of mounts cost?

    I have only ever had 2 guns with 1 set of mounts -I have upgraded to a hw110 today and now need to buy some new ones as its a picatinny rail.

    As my first set was just thrown on by the guy in the shop for my first gun how much should i spend on a good pair?

    Will I notice a difference in a more expensive set? This is something I haven't ever looked at until now!

    If its aloud can some one link me some good examples ?

    How much is very subjective, a set of Sportsmatch or Hawke Weaver mounts will do the job, circa £30-40.

    However the mounts are the interface between the scope and the gun, it's a bit like saying will good tyres improve the handling of a Reliant Robin!

    Interesting that you say "thrown on" I can assure you that the top tier mounts and a 3k scope will acheive nothing if not mounted carefully and correctly.

    BKL don't do weaver mounts unfortunately.

    You don't say what tube your scope is (1" or 30mm). The prices for 30mm ones are considerably higher for some reason.

    I found that a good set of weaver mounts is really quite expensive when I bought some for my HW110. I got some Burris ones in the end and I think they were about £60. Looking now though they seem to have gone up to £100!

    I will potentially need some more soon and I was considering the Vortex Pro Series but they aren't in stock anywhere.

    I hope so! I like BKL mounts too and use them on everything that doesn't have a weaver rail.

    Yeah, I’m using one set of BKL in my 97 and Sportsmatch on my Daystates... as soon as I’m a little more flush they will be replaced with BKL.

    Why spend a load on a gun and scope only to fit naff mounts! May as well buy a naff rifle and scope too! This is the physical connection between the two most important components. It took me a while to suss this out but when I did it was a revelation. I’m pretty ham fisted and tend to knock things about a little. A decent set of mounts won’t lose zero and will save you a lot of future head scratching!

    Enjoy your new gun mate, cracking choice! Let us know how you get on with it and PICS please, we like pics...

    Another vote for Bisley Sportsmatch

    Best mounts I’ve bought ever

    Clamp them down firm, remove them and there is NO marking of the scope whatsoever... not even paint compression...

    Perfect machining
