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.

    Okay all,
    Finally had the major bits to put together a quick mock up today.
    Its slowly comming together.
    My version is a bit different, And to be honest...Inspired by the "Call of Duty Heart Beat Sensors..."
    Haha.
    Here you go.
    IMG_0522.jpg IMG_0523.jpg IMG_0524.jpg The reason ive done this, is because id like to use the scope during the evening/dusk without switching scope or taking all of the camera and such off.
    I need the following to complete,
    Inch high mounts
    Adjustable laser mount (Mine broke >;( )
    Power pack/Battery holder to power the laser.


    The screen is built into the camera unit, with a built in battery - I havent tested the battery life yet, but its powered from a flat nokia battery.
    Is also has the function to record straight to a SD card, so you can record your kills.
    I changed the lense in the camera to make this work.
    The screen quality is good for what it is, during the day it shows much paler than the normal colours , but thats fine.
    The screen flips out and rotates.
    IT doesnt add much weight to the gun believe it or not.
    Problems:
    Its hard to get the camera lined up with the scope, ive used some pluming pipe, but im still having trouble. Duct tape will help.
    The laser, doesnt fit in any mounts, its too small. I may have to buffer it up with duct tape also. :)

    Expect to see in MK 2:
    Adjustable laser mount,
    Correct fitment.
    BAttery pack,
    Screen image, both day and night.
    I may also move it to the top of the primary scope and have the screen flip down over the primary scope when in use. On the right hand side, its slightly restricting the R-10 Bolt.

    Any suggestions please say, any ideas of items to buy that are on my list would be greatly appreciated.

    Nice setup mate, I have a few questions if its not too rude to ask...

    Does the line of trajectory become an issue when mounting a scope offset to either the left or right of the barrel as done here?

    If you have a second scope mounted to the side of the barrel and zero it at say 30 yards, would the POI vary in windage (left to right) at 45 yards?

    Just wondering because rangefinding can be difficult and with calibers like .22 and .25 it makes a lot of difference to the POI with elevation at these distances, could this be adding more calculations and potentially end up wounding an animal if this type of setup was used by somone unaware of the trajectory while hunting?

    Im not trying to criticise, in fact i love the setup and would like something similar for both dusk and night hunting.

    Would this be an issue or am i being daft???

    Yes it will effect the windage same as elevation.
    It can be done though, I seem to remember there being a WW2 American (I think) Sniper Rifle with a offset scope.
