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.

  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.

    Hi fellas

    First post so be kind ;) lol

    Been hunting now for around 20 years and first had a HW90 and what a dream she was! Sold that for a Falcon (coff, spit, gag) me and that piece of metal/wood NEVER got on. Then I was just about to take the plunge on a R7 when BSA released their flagship 12 years ago.....the Superten. Two weeks after released I had mine, still going strong although looking a little different.

    She's now on my FAC after legendary JB worked his magic upon her, spec as follows:-

    .22 FAC @ 34ft Ibs Bisley Magnums
    IOR 3-18x42 IR 35mm Tubed Scope
    Picatinny Rails
    Custom Bolt
    Karsten Adjustable Cheek Piece
    Wegu Adjustable Butt Pad
    5"-7" Versa Pod
    Dr Bob's Bottle Clamp
    JB Suppressor
    Chris Hare Custom Stock

    She's my one and only shooting stick and I doubt I'll ever replace her unless I get a .25 to go with :D

    Feel free with comments fellas

    Cheers & atb

    Thanks mate, that was the intention of the stock. Wanted a M40 A3 style but didn't wanna pay £300 for it. That believe it or not is a standard Mk1 stock from a S10 just re-shaped by Chris Hare. Worked wonders with it he did!

    The scope turrets are huuuuuuge! No mis dialling with them b*****s! :D lol

    Best group I managed so far in perfect conditions off the bipod was -

    It could be used for simple range finding by using the 'bracketing' method but it was designed, and I quote "for .223 or .308 calibre rifles only" from IOR themselves.

    Here's the reticle on IR -

    [​IMG]

    Not to be down hearted I adjusted the parallax and she's now set at 20-25 yards, I zero at 35 yards ;)

    The depth of field and quality of glass on that scope is amazing!

    The elevation turret is around 45mm in diameter and the windage turret is around the 35mm in diameter so quite large.

    The side wheel turret is the focus as per alot of scopes nowadays. I very rarely have to alter it due to the parallax adjustment but as I said the depth of field is amazing.

    More info can be found here if you like....

    :D lol not far off Andy, had a 'friend' in the states who was upgrading it for another scope and let me have it cheap.......good old £ against the pound I did ok ;) lol

    Cheers
