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.

    Hi guys, iv been shooting springs for around 10 years now but finely warmed to the idea of a pcp, the problem is which one?
    I don't have a huge budget so it will be at the lower end but I would like to buy new, I haven't had a brand new rifle for a long time and although I have had some used bargains iv also had some dogs.

    The rifles iv been looking at are the
    brocock concept
    Bsa ultra
    Webley raider
    Hatsan at44-10
    Aa s200

    Are there any others I have over looked? Also I thinnk a higher shot capacity would be nice?
    I have only shouldered two in the shop aa s200 and the hatsan and I actually preferred the hatsan, I liked the solid 'weighty' feel and the 10 shot side lever operation.

    Opinions please guys :) every little helps!

    out of the rifles listed i would go
    1.s200
    2.ultra
    3.brocock concept
    4.raider
    and the hatsan would go in the bin :eek:

    best thing to do is try and have a hold/shoot of them all and take it from there as what fits and suits me might not you
    hope this helps Aaron

    I know the s200 is a good gun, but for some reason I don't really like it? Maybe as you said I might be better off trying it out

    I love the look of the bsa ultra, but the low shot count puts me off a little

    do you have a local ft /hft club in your area if so might be worth a trip there as at most clubs the members are happy for you to have a go on there rifles and you might find a few off your list there

    The Brocock gets as many or less shots as a bsa ultra!

    I think I need to go and try out an ultra, probably the one iv got a soft spot for although the scorpion does look good too, are there any others worth looking at?

    Ultra and Scorpion are virtually the same gun, just different cylinder and cocking mech. Same barrel, same basic action.

    Get a T10 Scorpion, mine was putting in one hole groups at 50 yards - awesome rifle,but too small for me.

    £300 RETAIL an dbuilt in Britain...that doesn't ring true. It might be ASSEMBLED IN BRITAIN,to me that isn't the same thing as BUILT in Britain...a legal definition of "built" might be attained, but you are not telling me time served craftsmen are turning out rifles for that kind of money...they cannot possibly be. 20% of that price goes straight to the tax man,so that only leaves £240 for the gun...lets say a meagre 20% margin for the retail aspect....that takes the available funds down to £190.......break that down into the constituent parts and you start to see why I am a little bit sceptical.

    There is an old saying, "if it looks too good to be true, then it usually is too good to be true".

    Oh I'm very sceptical too, people keep saying to buy british products on here aswell and I looks damn nice but as said above customer service may be poor and spares could be hard to source
    But I think I looks great for the money

    Having owned both these guns in.22 i would say the Concept super six gives double the shot count of the ultra. There is very little difference in terms of weight and accuracy .

    For £250-£300 you can get a bsa superten carbine,ten shot mag bolt operated,very high shot count around 180 in. 22 and if you chose to you can mod them even further A fantastic gun at good money.I have just gone from springers to pcp and like you did not know what to go for! The ultra has a low shot count even when reged compared to the superten,also the ultra is cocked in two stages taking more time and movement where as the superten is one movement of the bolt!The superten karbine ticked all the boxes for me,stylish, shot count,handling, balance and value for money!you can get a lot for your money with them!I've just got a bullbarrel karbine! Cnt wait for it to come!!Good luck with ur choice mate!
