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.

    Hi all, just took delivery of my newest toy so thought I'd share.

    I wanted a gas ram break barrel in .20, a spring underlever in .22 and a PCP in .177. With the arrival of my HW90K, my wee collection is complete. Just got to find a .20 barrel for the 90 now, but I'm in no great rush. From now on, it's a "one in, one out" policy with regards to rifles...

    Very impressed with the consistency from the 90, ran a 10 shot string through the Combro using JSB Exact 4.52mm 8.44gn pellets earlier and the fpe (didn't do fps) ranged from 11.34-11.36 over the ten shots! :eek: Just need to learn how to shoot the damn thing now...

    The TX has the full TbT kit in, with a 13mm piston extension and a shaved down washer. Everything inside polished to a mirror finish. She sits at around 11.4/5fpe with Crossman Premiers and is a real tack driver. Sits in a CS800 stock and is topped off with an A&M Titch mod.

    The Falcon has an Deben 9-16 bipod, HW mod and a daft big PAO 4-16x56 SWAT scope stuck on there, seems to work well for the gun. The whole setup in it's sweet spot is more accurate than I'll ever be. The other two have a Nikko Gold Crown and a Nikko Mountmaster on 'em respectively. Better glass for these two is definitely on my list (the Mountmaster ain't that bad actually), but I'll need to wait I think. The pennies are going out a lot faster than they're coming in at the moment... :D

    Cheers guys! :up:

    Been out most of the afternoon with the 90, and grouping well at 20m with it now - ten shots nearly on top of each other with only one flier! Seems it likes much the same hold as the TX, nipped in at the shoulder reasonably firm and left to it's own devices at the fore. Must say I'm impressed with the "Elite" trigger they fitted to these. Nice first stage with a very crisp break. Very light, and the resettable pop-out safety just in front of the trigger is a joy to use. Prefer it to the safety on the back of the breech if I'm honest.

    Looking forward to getting back to the range and putting a bit of distance work in with it.

    Cheers, Geordie! That's a big compliment coming from you! ;)

    Initially I wasn't sold on thumbholes having never used one before, but after I tried the Falcon, I loved it! Got a nice shelf for thumb up shooting, which is ideal for the bench, just feel you get a bit more control with it. Liked it so much, I ended up with the TX after using it for a month or two! The Falcon is still my favourite stock though, just fits me right. Nice high comb at the back, and a lovely pistol grip however you use it.

    Keeping my eyes peeled for a nice sporter stock for the 90 now, as I find the Weihrauch offering a bit... I dunno, lacking? Nowt wrong with it really, but with the other two stocks I have it really feels like it's missing summat. I'll just struggle along with it for now, I suppose. :D

    Thumb up is the way to go for me mate.....feels a bit of a sturdier grip, as you say.

    Not too long now and you'll have a nice pistol to join your trio of rifles:nana::nana::nana:

    Another pistol for the collection, but my first "proper" pistol... ;)

    I've got a GSG92 all polished bits and everything, CP88 with walnut grips, a matty mod and a reflex sight, CP99 with a red dot and mod adaptor (had a PH mod on it, fitted nice beneath the foresight), and a mod .586 at the moment. The big Smith caused quite a stir at the range the other day, but even with the 6" barrel it's not really a paper puncher at 10m. It's accurate(ish) and all, but Co2 just doesn't do it for me. Great fun and good for can killing and the like, but I'm after summat a bit more serious nowadays.

    Even got a Mac10 full auto airsoft running on green gas for giggles. It's ridiculous, but good for a laugh. People seem really impressed with it. You'll struggle to put two beebees in the same place with it, but that doesn't matter when it's spray 'n pray...

    Can't wait to get my hands on this Black Star! My bits of paper won't know what's hit 'em! :D

    I tell you bud, 'twas a slippery slope.

    I'd been without a gun of any kind for years and ended up buying a CP88 for a bit of plinking in the garden.

    As anyone on this forum knows, one is never enough...

    An enjoyable (but expensive) slide into an amateur armoury ensued. :)

    Edit: found a piccie on my 'phone. Matt CP88 was ma Da's, Mac10 is in the hoose.

    View attachment 99876

    Had to buy another complete gun to get the grips for the '88! A labour of love, that wee thing. Think I'd sell anything else before it, as I'd never get the money back for it...

    I know that slope mate!:rolleyes:

    I spent £700 on pistols last year. Ended up with two Hw 45's, two 240 magnums, an hw40, a webley nemesis and a webley alecto:rolleyes:

    All gone bar the alecto! ,,,,,,,and your Hw of course;)
