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.

    Hello, just thought I’d share my FX rifle with anyone that’s interested :)

    Owned it about 6-8 months now and added some little bits. It’s a .177 in sub12. I use an Element Helix scope, with Burris PEPR mount, some custom wood pieces (grip, cheek rest, buttstock, cocking handle) and some Sekhmet gauges.

    Power wise, it’s as it left the factory. I have not tinkered with it at all as I really don’t see the need to!

    I have a video which I took last night of shooting .177 pellets which were stood up at 35 yards.

    I am planning on changing the buttstock, as pleasing to the eye as it is, it provides ZERO grip:facepalm:

    If anyone wants any other information, or see’s me at Petes and wants to have a go, just say hi and feel free to ask :)

    Jay.

    Hi Paul, this one is not. It’s direct from James Rid. He had to make them bespoke for my cackhandedness:D

    Very nice! I have thought about the Saber stuff, but I think I’ll be going with PRS for my addons. They did my extended rail, and also do a lovely buttstock.

    I would love a Crown in the Saber-Tactical chassis though, that looks awesome!

    Looks sweet. Could you add some rubber sheet to the butt to enhance grip rather than just remove it? It makes more sense to retain a full set surely?
    Or carefully drill into it and glue in cut sections of a large O ring, trim to length, bingo.

    Drill & glue..... What!!! Are you mad sir:eek:

    This is the final update, just fit a Hogue grip, so much better than the Ergo one which I couldn't even get my hand round, so now finished :thumb:

    Not a bad shout to be fair, and something I may try. I suppose a simple rubber pad would be easily sourced.

    I am still leaning toward the PRS kit though :)

    The handle I use is amazing for bench rested shooting (which is my current only form of shooting)

    Actually i wanted a PRS with mono pod but they are never seem to be available, but i'm very happy with the Saber Tactical gear, i think it suits the Rifle to a "T"

    Update: i have ordered the Saber Bench rest monopod, now i've done:thumb:

    Hi Jay, what pellets do you use & what sort of consistency are you seeing?

    Hi, for my .177 I shoot JSB Heavies (10.34) grain, and have a typical spread of about 9fps.

    I could reduce it if I spent time tuning, but I’m really not that worried.

    Its a laser. You won’t be disappointed if you get one.

    If you find a cocking lever, PLEASE let me know! I am desperately searching for one. I am tempted to try and make my own from an FX lever.

    I have a picture of how they look, I just need one to bastardise into what I need. I’m not a metal fabricator by any stretch of the imagination :(
