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.

    Great starter rifle and you can pick it up for as little as £50.
    11ft lbs.
    750-900 FPS

    fibre optic sites and rear is adjustable.
    synthetic stock, making very lightweight but has an even balance and weather proof.
    It's my first rifle and I've only been shooting a month and hasnt let me down yet.
    got my first clean kill from 40 yards.[/QUOTE]

    have you had it chrono'd to see what it is actually doing because if its under powered then take it back and get it sorted . them figures they post with the guns mean s**t they will have tested the same model but better built to get them figures then put the gun into production , and they could be running at anything . all the guns i got i have checked myself to make sure there not under or over powered .

    I have a SMK SYNXS brand new for a spot of back yard plinking and I can assure you, it is definitely not 11ft lbs and not 750-900 fps. I know this because 1. My Gamo shadow (722fps and 11.3ft lbs according to manufacturer) absolutely kicks its arse and 2. It says in the instruction manual right in front of me that the .177 gets 600 fps and the .22 470 fps. Unless it has been modified it isn't putting out 11 ft lbs or 750-900 fps. This I promise you. Not bad rifle for the money though. You must be one hell of a shot to get a clean kill at that distance with one, unless you are one hell of a thrower!

    hi you can only have what you have on a budget. Regardless of what people own (Now) probably everyone on here has owned a Chinese/SMK/Lion/Bam/Westlake. I own many top end rifles but I also have a mix of cheapo's my cheapo's have been heavily modded. When you shoot high quality there really is a big difference only real way is to tune/upgrade parts in cheapo's.

    Everyones gotta start somewhere! :)
    I'm glad you like it fella, nice looking gun, perfect starter rifle!
    Give it a couple of months and you'll be wanting more power though... ;)
    the good thing is, because you've looked after it, you'll be able to get a good chunk of the money back you spent on it when you come to sell it. :)
    Happy shooting fella!

    Sure you can. have a go with my QB78 next time you're over. :D First time hunting with Relin my QB was out shooting his HW100 (read:him, scope problems) :p:p

    Seriously though the QB will hit what you point it at every time same as a PCP. If it was multi-shot I probably would'nt have gone PCP :eek: and its a lot lighter than a PCP.

    Yes they need work to get them to shoot this way but that work is easily <£10 for new seals and a bit of polishing/be burring for most people.

    Cheers

    I have one and love it - very proud to give it praise. Yes it is no hunting rifle, I combro all my guns almost right out of the box (we all do, right!) and after a few hundred pellets. This little gun delivers about sub 5ft/lbs on superdomes. This is about what you would expect in general if you know the gun. It is beautifully light so a pleasure to hold, low power means no recoil to speak of but best of all is the sights.......a joy to use. You buy this for target shooting because the sights plus the gun make it supremely accurate and consistent. I am not a hunter so for me, if I had only one gun, this would be it. There are things I don't like, like the safety for example but bang per buck, unbeatable. I think the problem often is that the gun is often oversold. Have it for what it is and like me you'll love it.;)
