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.

    My HW77K is Still in 'final build'... 7 months and not fired a shot, then when it did it barely made 6lb/f.
    My Webley VMX Synthetic is fun on open sights plinking until you go deaf / hear every peel of bells in the land all at once inside yer bonce.

    My friend told me to wait and a deal was just round the corner... and arrived in the form of:
    IMG_20191008_000054.jpg
    An everso slightly second hand almost minty Walther Rotex RM8 in .22 with an aftermarket silencer who's brand escapes me and is effective.
    The scope is a PAO 4-16x56 IR SF Swat, s/h but Mint.
    £490.
    The gun is the first ambi stock I've found I can hold and like some people say, it's a man size Ultra and weighs it, but I like ergonomically large guns and there's no way it's gonna blow away in a breeze.
    The scope new or s/h is quite astounding for the price... Didn't know the brand existed till I joined this forum and read ravings.
    It too is a bit of a lump.
    Bolted together the weight is a toe-crushing 4,350 in metric.
    Need a sling.

    I've put a few 'not in anger' and it cycles very nicely.
    End.

    That's a fair old lump - best of luck carting that across a plowed field in the driving rain at the end of an all-nighter... :thumb:

    Well RW if its driving rain and possibly windy as the two often go together then is it wise to be out shooting live quarry with an air rifle but i assume the OP will be using a sling on the rifle anyway so carrying it shouldn't pose to much of a problem.

    In my immense overexcitement I didn't check to see if the mag mag could be installed with the side wheel installed.
    :facepalm:
    Then found no hex key in my bag.
    :mad:
    Still, the 3 1/2 mile round trip WALK was stunning.
    So ended up in me mates back yard, scope sans wheel teaching his wife to shoot and the strumpet shot 9 mags worth of lead trying to tame her trigger finger... 14yrs ago she stumbled and put her hand through a pane of glass, severing the tendons and nerves.
    Told her chap she can get her own bl@@dy rifle.
    Maybe I'll get chance to shoot it mesen soon...

    I had the choice of the PAO or the Airmax 30, for me the former has the edge by a very skinny margin, if the former wasn't available I'd have had the Airmax.

    Nice shooting there Bunny. Did you have the stock dipped? I've only seen them in black, it looks really nice in the camo, much lighter looking.

    Thanks, got to my spot, set up to test zero, shot the mag in zero wind, popped the mag out and the heavens opened... Had to do a bird of prey mantle with me coat to keep things dry-ish whilst hiding under a hedge.
    The stock is stock mate.
    Had the choice of beech or camo, took the camo synthetic because my action was already installed, quite attractive in the flesh, surprisingly tactile and probably less chance of splitting the fore end through torquing with a bipod.
