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.

    It will do the business Tony. Not the most refined rifle around but for the price it's worth it IMO

    Nothing wrong with that, looks good to me :) I have seen them in the flesh but never shot one. I like the looks too. I would check second hand as there are good deals about and should be just as good nick. Either way enjoy and let us know how you get on

    Thank you, jimbouk.
    I have to say, starting out again after many years and knowing my local gunsmith, I'm going to opt for brand new and barter a deal with everything I need. But thanks for the recommendation all the same.

    I've had my RM8 for about a year now, internet wisdom said they were crap, that has not been my experience and the only downside is it's quite a heavy gun, for those 8 stone weaklings out there!

    I have the varmint and I wouldn’t say it looked ugly, purposeful maybe. I would have preferred a nice wood stock and some of the laminates on other rifles are very very nice. It was bought as a tool though for around the farm, if it gets wet, muddy or whatever I don’t cry too much! If I get into the HFT stuff I’ll look for something lighter and prettier.

    I read all the internet tales of woe too and frankly haven’t had an issue that wasn’t my fault. At first it’s notchy and then I managed to fire the probe seal out as it got too dry. I’ve been making sure it gets a touch of gun oil after every outing now and it cycles much nicer. Running Diablo fields in it and it seems pretty happy with them.

    For accuracy, I would say the issue is mine not the rifle.

    I’ve fancied one of these for years now, always been directed to the HW and AA ranges. I think, having shot a .22 at a club a few times, I might have to save and get one. Yes they are meaty guns, but so is the HW100, the MPR and so on. I love how they feel to shoulder, my biggest gripe (and it is a personal gripe not a gripe in general) is the barrel seems long. But I’ve only ever really owned carbines so... look forward to hearing more from you about it.

    VerminHuntersTV did a great review of this gun. They seemed to like it quite a bit. I wish I could shoot anything as well as these guys shoot air rifles.

    Well, so much for buying my new rifle. This weekend's plans went completely tits-up. Sorry everyone, you'll have to wait until Friday, when I plan to try again.

    Nice one. Nothing wrong with showing off your new toy. Although I have to say, that barrel weight looks much shorter than I imagined.
    Oh, and I'll have that bottle of Santa beer in the background while I'm waiting ;)

    Thanks, Ray - made me smile, that did. All being well, the coming weekend will be much different.
    Dare I let it happen again? Not if I've got anything to do with it ;)

    Thanks, Ray.
    Just in case people don't think I'm serious about this, here's my latest purchase in ready for my rifle. This is a brilliant piece of kit...

    Just to chuck a bit of a spanner in the works- have you looked at the Gamo phox kit?
    Full pcp setup- rifle/scope/moderator/pump & bag all for £500, I had one & it was very good.

    I have thought about that option, Bigjimknickers, and my local gunsmith stocks it exactly as you described for £499. My only reservation is that it only seems to be available in Tactical (well, as far as I can tell it is), and I'm really not a lover of the tactical finish. I'm an old fart and I just love the good old-fashioned wooden look. But thanks for the suggestion. :up:
