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.

    hello, as above i have just purchased this off a forum member, why well having tried an R10 which i might say are very good and give good shot count stalking around in the dark barns grain stores etc shooting rats the R10 did not quite match what i needed so i done a lot of research to find a very light weight/pointable/good shot count/ that would be better and as this vermy came for sale and with the R10 sold i was lucky to buy/ cased/ silencer/ in good working order. came with a red dot scope which i did not like so decided to put on my hawk 3x9x40 AO with double mount and got a good zero to 20 mtrs the most distance i usual do. i wanted a good shot count for reason i can empty my S410 well to 50bar some nights. anyway this vermy is not my usual type of rifle but once you have a few shots get comfortable holding its very accurate, so my first try the other night only with my cree red torch and thumb switch it was so different, easy to swing/ sight up/torch on, pop!!!! dead rat, 10 in one barn alone as i think my friends farm is put on the winter holiday guide for rats des res winter warmers!!!! lots of food !!!!. it shoots more quite than any pcp i have or have had. it not usual for me to find a rifle that i am realy pleased to buy s/h as most are not quite right for my needs but this one ticks all the boxes and i already enquired with ASI about a service, plenty of spares mr ratman service no probs. so this will outlast me i asked yep probably will :D ps thanks for reading

    Nice rifle the vermy ,had a MK2 with ST barrel stupidly enough sold it on a whim. Now just bought a Bobcat.177 bit heavier than the verminater and longer 36" with mod. Weather has been terrible with torrential rain, hailstones and High winds so inbetween the showers have been plinking from inside house shooting through patio doors, very accurate out too 20 yards and very pleased so far{ yes its in the girly calibre before anyone says fancied a change} Enjoy your rifle bet them rats aren't to pleased!!
