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.

  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.

    Just a quick post of my diy nv build, it consists of
    • E700 pub camera from sure 24 mounted in a FLOPLAST sol weld end cap and coupler to a screw threaded step ring, generic brand from wickes was to small internally
    • 3.5" tft 640x480 from china decent quality image but a bit flimsy in casing, mounted by squaring off the base and attaching to 20mm mount
    • t20 illuminator, 3 stage, looking to mount to a weaver topped scope mount
    • 6000ah 12v battery

    looking to tidy up the battery and wiring in pic 3(maybe making a black neoprene cover).

    very capable system and i think it looks very good for the cost as opposed to the ready built sets.

    cant wait to get it on the golf course next week:D

    Screen, £11 without DVR or £19 with DVR. ebay
    Iluminator £30 ebay

    more or less scud, i had to pay vat on the e700 so £68

    £45 t20 with 2 batteries and charger, bought late last year

    step rings £1 each, 38-52mm and male/male 52mm

    monitor and battery prices about cock on

    warrior mounts £7, 30mm tube and my spare mounts are 25.4mm

    dc splitter cable and dnc to phono adapters are cheaper if you buy from sure24 instead of maplins, but i didnt know till i got it, it was dnc.

    just a big thank you to terry and the other guys who have posted threads on here and the nightvision forum offering help and advice:up:

    im thrilled with how it eventually turned out after wasting quite abit on earlier attempts

    I noticed there was 3 or 4 different versions of the E700pub, I couldn't determine the differance. Don't know enough about what they do. What is it Kal el?

    oh forgot about the floplast ends about £7 for the 5 pack, but ive been informed the b&q ones are floplast and £1.08 each.

    and you could remove the rubber washer attach an i phone case and drill a hole for a cheap effective i scope mount

    im toying with putting the set up on the verminator, so is the stock pouch slipped on or velcro fastened? just the verminator butt plate is a buddy bottle with casing and an ambi cheek piece.

    so my thinking was to sew a velcro mount to a neoprene case for battery and wiring.

    Does soldering make for a better quality set up? Whats the advantages Terry? Just had a look at the camera and it doesn't have power and video leads. Are these soldered on as well?

    no the camera comes with the wiring but the video output is bnc and your monitor will be phono so unless soldering an adapter is reqd,

    basically the wiring loom is a small connector direct to the camera and consists of 3 wires, all you need separately is the double power lead to split the monitor and camera to the battery

    Rather than use tape, for a quick lash up (that's still being used and seems quick and easy so may stay..!), I use a couple of chunky elastic bands. Everything can be removed/refitted from the butt in seconds and it's all out of touching distance when firing the gun. I was going to tidy up and shorten the wiring but I don't think I'll bother now. Girlie sowed me a nice draw string butt cover to slip over and hide it all...:up:
