  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.

    Even though Ive had a huntsman Ive given it another try as in the Regal version, I think its a looker and handles and shoots sublime all those tweaks definitely make it a different gun to the huntsman, so far so good, I like it..........a lot:D:up:

    I have a hw100 also mate, its a bit like choosing between VW and Audi, both perform very similar, although I would give the hw100 the edge in accuracy stakes just.

    But where the Regal shines is handling it feels loads better once you actually get out hunting, its a proper hunting airgun no doubt about it, I think the entire design brief was based on that, and it shows, its slender and light weight excellent bolt and magazines, plus feels very well finished.

    I just wish I had gone for .22 in this gun as you would get even more shots per charge.

    hello, if you say would like more shots is the wolf/ranger/ not a better way to go considering they weigh about the same as the HW 100? i was thinking about the new regal or a AA S510 super lite in .22 as do like the side loading action.

    I bought a couple of these for the family jut a few weeks ago, one is currently back at Daystate with a stiff bolt - sore hands after using it for a day! This is a pity, but the general feel of the guns is excellent, and I am having no problems accuracy wise either, both doing sub 15mm groups at 35m outdoors with different shooters on AA field, so I have not yet even tried to get a better pellet as just wanted to play with them.

    I have noticed they are loud compared to my other Daystates - Airwolf and MK4is, I have silencers fitted to everything, but you notice the difference easily.

    As for shot count, the sticker on the side gives the optimum fill for that gun, so they are all "up to 230bar", but tested at the factory to give a best figure. Mine are 200 and 210, but I just put them both to 210 and I'm sure I got over the 100 shot mark in .177 and they were still shooting fine, my wolf in .177 will easily do 200+ and my MK4is in .22 does around the 150 mark, but it is a full 230bar.

    This one does about 85 shots per charge, so its nearly double of what the hw100k does where as my old huntsman was about the same as the hw100, so its more than the huntsman by quite a bit.

    I just meant I fancied a .22 for squirrels and rabbits because Ive got a few .177s already plus the extra shots would have been an added bonus. :D:up:

    I like the look of these but prefer the Huntsman mainly because i think the balance is better though the higher shot count can come in handy.As said above some of these develop a cocking problem hopefully yours won't.

    That's interesting to know mate, the HW101 seems good price wise, and I've got two Weirauchs at the moment so it's a case of keep to the same breed or try something different, I think my preferred calibre is .177 so I'll stick with that. Really need to try both guns!

    If you want my advice mate, go for a hw100tk in .177

    But if you want a .22 I would go for one of these regals, just as they seem to pump the .177 Regals out of the Daystate factory set at about 10.3 Ft/ibs with a JSB 8.4 pellet, I think they are being a little too cautious, had two now and both doing the exact same power, they need another ft/ibs to compete with a hw100 at the extreme ranges they can shoot, my hw100 has never failed to amaze me out to really long range.

    I had a huntsman also mate, these definitely balance better inmo, you have to feel them side by side to judge that really but if feels no heavier, the rest is basically the same gun.

    I have heard about the cocking problem also, but by chance this one cocks very smooth as did my Huntsman, I want to adjust the trigger a bit but I don't want to ruin the smooth cocking so Im leaving it well alone.

    The two Regals I got were set at 11.4ftlb and 10.9ftlb, both in .177. I don't actually understand why there is such a difference in setting of power and the like straight from the factory, as I thought they all were finally checked and tested, seems it would be easy to get everything leaving at around the same?

    That's a lovely looking piece of wood on your Regal, that's for sure.

    Here's a little analysis I did with my Regal. I've got the FPE calculations somewhere too I'm sure.

    I know what you mean I thought Daystate checked every gun before they left, maybe they have a power tolerance or about 2 ft/ibs or something.

    But may I ask James what pellets did you use?

    Ive managed to get 10.8 with a 9.5 grain pellet but it doesn't like them, neither does it like Accupell which has surprised me, and the only pellet I have used through it it actually shot ok is 4.52 AA field.

    So Firstly Im going to get the power up to 11.4ish with a JSB/Airarms and try some different sizes ie 4.51 or 4.53.

    This is the typical cluster at 30yrds but my other rifles will make clean one hole round groups at the same range, so maybe I also need to use the single shot tray.

    LOL - Love it!

    I used AA field on both, and the crono is showing about a 30fps difference between them, hence the 0.5ftlb difference in power (roughly).

    I'm getting a few different pellets to try, but I've held off as one of the guns is still at Daystate to deal with the stiff bolt, and I've a feeling this may reduce the power a tad also? - we will see, it was the one shooting at 11.4.

    The day I spend with both guns side by side they were shooting accurately, you could cover a 10 shot mag group with a 20p with an odd flier excluded at around 35m outdoors. I was quite impressed with this as I don't usually shoot as well as this!!!:D I would not mind, but then the rest of the family replicated the result (We then hurried off to the HFT course because I can beat them on there:eek:)

    Ive been detailing a shotgun I have this morning as its getting sold at the weekend, So as I was at it I gave the Regal a bit of the same treatment, as the stock was pretty dry, the grain really popped.:up:
