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.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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.

    .177 .......@ 11.4 FPE.......and the most accurate rifle I've ever shot.

    Newly acquired Light Steam is like the difference between night and day.

    That's what I'd spend a grand on.....

    Have you thought about HW110K? Go to the other extreme as it were?

    How they manage to get 140 shots per fill from that small cylinder? Thats full length specs surely. I think carbine is only 70 shots or so.

    Don't know what you've heard but I love mine and didn't feel much different to the 100 in the shop when I tried both. The magazine is more of a pain to put in though.

    Won't going from one HW100 to another be a bit too similar?

    Even a 110 I'd say.

    How about something like an Air Arms Ultimate Sporter? Or Galahad (if you don't hate it).

    This is the rifle version so has full length cylinder same as my 100s. The carbine one is too small for me

    Don't dis-count the BSA R10 SE in super carbine length - if shortness is crucial. If not, the standard rifle is fairly compact anyway.

    For a grand you can have a new one AND a blueprint from JB. Mine is EVERY bit as good as any of the five 100's I have owned over the years- better in some respects (fit, looks and shot count to name but three) - it's lighter which will help in the field, and it loads from the correct side for a right handed shooter.

    To be fair, that is purely my opinion. The 100 is a tremendous bit of kit, so if you end up with another, that'd be no bad thing. I prefer the R10 - but it's close.

    I had discounted the R10 because of reg issues but you do have an interesting point with JB
