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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    Would that be the 50mm 0/j, or the u/l 40mm. Had a look through the u/l cos i like the AMD ret and lightweight scopes but not overly impressed

    Had a look through one when I purchased my Viper. I thought image quality was very good but I couldn't justify the extra cost. This was after I had adjusted the occular lens to suit my own sight. I see no end of people in gun shops looking through scopes that are not adjusted correctly. MTC scopes seem to be boxed with the occular adjustment screwed right in. They need to be about 3 or 4 mm unscrewed before you see a sharp picture. I wonder how many people have been put off buying a scope (or persuaded to get a costier scope) because of poor adjustment. RFD's could help by getting this adjustment somewhere near to allow fair comparisons to be made.

    I am very impressed with my Genesis 5-20x50

    It seemed easier to focus than my bushnell elite but i havent played with the bushnell properly yet, its deffo better than my dads older bushnell and also better than my Nikko Platinum and Hawke POS !!!

    The turrets were great, really positive.

    But Im a total novice, so maybe not the best judge.

    I shot with one 6 weeks ago and then again on Sunday it was the
    MTC OPTICS GENESIS 3-9x40 ULTRALITE I really liked it I loved the ret very clear and uncluttered
    It was on a rifle I was there to buy I was visiting another club to buy it.
    The seller gave me a tin of pellets and told me to shoot away so I spent an hour using the scope

    He bought it new 7 weeks ago for the rifle but he offered me it for £80 as a package but I spent £500
    On his springer and could not afford to buy it.
    The only problem with the scope is the lock for your zero points downwards at 45 degrees
    The owner said he could not fit a one piece mount as the lock gets in the way.
    That's the only fault.
    If I had the money I would be owning one right now.
    I have a viper 10x44 and I prefer the ret on the genesis it gives a bright clear Image
    It also comes with sunshade and Butler creek covers .
    The best advice is look through one.
