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.

  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.

    Welcome to the forum my brand new S500 Carbine complete with Q-TEC moderator (my that's quiet!) 20210423_175519.jpg 20210423_175523.jpg 20210423_175529.jpg

    Already dropped into my CS Walnut stock.

    Fired a few through it to zero, now to get the pull through the barrel and have a serious crack. Really nice to fore, trigger is pretty close to perfect - might need to slacken off very slightly.

    Also just received some BKL mounts. Might as well have a whole set up!

    Each hole is less than 10mm edge to edge, centre is 8mm. All 5 shots supported. Not too bad after a decent barrel clean bit still only about 100 shots maximum through her.

    So....

    Day 2 at the S500 House!

    Getting used to the cocking mechanism, a little different from my Artemis M16, that is a straight open and close with a slight click, the 500 you pull back all the way with a springy resistance at the end of the pull. Not a bad thing, just different.

    Pellet loading is super smooth, with a satisfying click as the side leaver closes.

    The trigger is superb, short 1st stage, definite stop then just enough pressure and - well, there is a definite "ting" from the mechanism. Much more than my old S400. I assume this will settle down the more I use it.

    The qtec mod does the absolute business, even my partner was impressed how quiet it is!

    Cleaning the barrel was an experience. While it doesn't look like a Carbine, the shroud goes a good 2-3" past the barrel end which makes putting a pull through quite tricky, as it kept wanting to go down the edge on the shroud instead of in to the barrel!

    Over the chrono (as it was on the lower half of pressure) looks nice and steady, 120bar seems to be the drop off point.

    Up to that point only 9fps variance nice and steady 11.4/11.3 card in MPS (. bless the £18 Chinese chrono)

    Off to Nomads tomorrow to see if it improves my score (we won't hold our breaths on that one! Lol)

    Day 3....

    Nomads HFT...

    Shot a 45, which is equal to my best score so far. The wind was a proper sod today and the top score was 51, so not awful as I'm still learning.

    The rifle is superb, the trigger has just the right break pressure and I was hitting (dropping) targets right out to 45 yds. In fact I tend to do better on the long ones than short! Ooooo Matron!

    No regrets at all on this purchase. As long as it keeps going the way its started - is an Air Arms, so "should" be pretty solid. :):)
