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.

    '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.'

  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.

    I've finally today picked up my new hatsan 60s and love it!

    i have a customer who lives on a farm and am hoping to secure a permission for this soon. In the meantime, just practicing with the new rifle.

    Wondered if anyone had any recommendations for good pellets for the hatsan?

    RWS Superdomes naturally!

    Great gun, I love them, worth every penny and with a Welsh Willy kit, re-crown and moderator they are very quiet too.

    PS ^^^^ what he said, My nephews 60 has one of Matts slip-ons fitted - it's brilliant!

    Alan,

    If you decide to fit a moderator that front sight will knock off with a mallet and a block of wood, you might be lucky and have a later one with the flush/square muzzle, the older ones have a horrible step cut into the end of the barrel and need cutting to fit a mod.

    Does the 60s even need a silencer?
    The muzzle report on the 55s isnt too loud the 60s being .22 and lenght of barrel i would have thought the muzzle report wouldnt need a silencer?

    It's probably doesn't Ryan but they are super quiet with one fitted, helps as a cocking aid too.

    When I had one it liked the rather expensive Bisley Magnums. 200 pellets per tin instead of the usual 500. Those and bizarrely RWS Superpoint seemed to group pretty well. RWS Superdomes were a good price/quality/grouping pellet.

    I would note mine was a pre-quattro trigger. Best thing to do is pellet tests with sample packs, rested shooting on a still day.

    I've found the Magnums to be very effective, albeit .177, on squirrels. What I particularly like is the thick skirt and I haven't found one deformed one yet. I like the thought that there shouldn't be any problem caused by a defective pellet when shooting at any live target.
