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.

    So I have accumulated a few Hatsans, a BT65 in .25, which I have finally got shooting straight, now 1/2 inch groups at 50 meters is easy. An AT44 in .22 which is a tack driver and my new addition an AT44 single shot with a LW barrel in .177, deadly accurate. Pellet on pellet at 25m, 42m and ragged hole at 50m. And my lone Weihrauch an HW98 in .22 which is also deadly accurate and alot of fun to shoot, I just need a better scope for it.

    There have been a few questions about these Hatsan over the last little while. I am not a air gun expert but from where I sit they give excellent value for the money, all three of the Hatsan were less than a Daystate Huntsman (here in Canada that is). They are put together fairly well but not nearly as nice as the HW98 I have, i.e. blueing could be nicer etc. The newest AT44 seems to have bit better fit and finish to it as compared with the other two Hatsans, so maybe they are getting better?

    One thing is for sure is the finish on the wood stocked Hatsans leave alot to be desired. It is a muddy red tinted lacquer and it hides what ever graining or figuring you may have. So needless to say I stripped the finish as soon as I got the rifle home and coated with tru-oil. It looks a hundred times better now. The first and second picture are the before shots.

    The stock came out lovely well done, I have heard a lot of good things about these hatsans, and with the accuracy you say yours are doing no money in the world will buy you more performance than that.:up:

    What do you shoot with them?

    That stock is fantastic mate
    I can't believe they'd hide a stock like that under horrible lacquer or varnish

    The .25 and .22's are for vermin control out here in the country,I live on a 5 acre piece of land surrounded by others so air rifles are perfect for that purpose. The .177 is for targets.

    I bought the HW so I can take that with me to the cabin or when away from home and not need to bring all the PCP gear. I have given up on hand pumping, air tank only now. The BT65 goes through air like a pig so hand pumping it got old real fast.
