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.

    Or a normal sale, hi I want to buy your item

  6. 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.

    Nice little first thoughts review.:up:
    Wonder if it's feasible to increase the shot count on these?
    Does the air cylinder just unscrew? Could you fill a spare and take it with you out in the field?
    When a silencer is fitted is there room for a slightly larger air cylinder?
    Looks really good anyway, have fun:):thumb:

    Happy new gun day. Shouldered one of these in the Local RFD today. Loved it except for the shot count in 1.77. Ideal hunting rifle though.

    To answer a few questions, the barrel would be too close to the cylinder to fit a moderator IF the cylinder was made longer. I'm happy with the shot count in 22 and also have a Daytripper bottle. It definitely needs a moderator to stop the bark.

    If I'm ever on a permission that warrants more than 20 shots in an evening then I'll be very happy and also have my R10 with me and a spare buddy bottle.

    I've now moved the scope forward, a lot, and readjusted the length of pull. It now sits perfectly and only protrudes 1cm passed the end of the gun when folded. DSC_8639.JPG DSC_8640.JPG

    Hi Catch22 and Dave.

    I can't decide on the best fitting day tripper or weekender.
    Can I ask how many refills you get from the day tripper ?
    Thanks.
    Steve

    I fill my Daytripper to 250bar and can fill the ranger once to 230bar and then again to 210bar ish on its second fill. I suppose another fill may get me another 20 shots but I'd have to try.

    I now own a BSA compressor so to be fair I'm probably better off taking that with me too.

    In all honesty, it's easier to take a spare gun as we all have at least three don't we?

    Last point to note, it can be fired when folded. It's awkward to do but nonetheless it can be done. I would have thought it should incorporate a non firing mechanism when being folded?

    Apparently as Brocock market the Ranger as a rifle in the eye of the law it's a rifle.
    That's how it was explained to me by a RFD.:shrug:
