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.

    To clear this text box, click on the 'X' in the top right-hand corner.

    hi guy's at present i've owned an aa s410 carbine for about 6mts but from the time i bought it i've had nothing but problems (not with the gun). first problem was the bottle would'nt fill the gun turned out it needed a fast flow valve instead of the slow flow that was on the bottle i rang the previous owner who swore blind he filled the gun from the bottle yet my gun shop and dive center could'nt. second problem was new sights i bought that turned out to be faulty (am i lucky or what) anyway by now i was starting to hate the gun so decided to get it serviced just before christmas hoping it would make me feel better towards the gun but it has'nt so it has to go. after a few weeks of wanting this gun or that gun i've settled on three that i'd like to try HW 100KT/BSA SCORPION SE/BSA R10 all .177 i know their not everyones cup of tea so if anyone uses any of these three and you had a choice would you buy one again (it will be for hunting only)

    I had a BSA R10. Lovely little gun, Accurate, good lines, nice stock, light. Only thing that let it down was the finish. But all in all great gun.
    Would I buy another? Yes at the right price.

    Had all three and I think it's safe to say any of them will do you proud. Then again so should the 410 but if that didn't do it for you then you really need to try each of the above to play safe. I really can't put any of the ones mentioned before the others.

    Ive had a webely venom sidewinder,aa s200,bsa s-10 and now own a bsa scorpion se and its my fave rifle and can not fault it.

    Good shot count
    Has a gauge
    Handles well
    Good mag system(better than older ones)
    Lightweight
    No probs with accuracy
    Does the job that other more exspensive rifles will.

    Its easy to say get this get that,this is better thats pants.

    If you get the right gun that suits you with the right pellet combination and the range time in you will be happy.

    The se's are actually heavier than r-10s it's just they are well balanced so you don't feel it!
    Bsa are getting good stocks on there rifles at the mo which does help.
