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.

    Thank you.

  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.

    thanks to a fellow forum member had another scope turn up in the post today. this one is to replace my old tasco, not that there is anything wrong with it far from but it does look a little tired.
    the replacement is an old bushnell trophy 4-12x40 AO, i didnt pay too much for it so no big loss if it turned out pants. but surprise its a belter! condition wise there are a few slight scuffs and scrapes but looks tidy. wasnt sure about the high gloss finish but its growing on me and seems to suit the classic lines of me old 95 break barrel.
    cant find much about these online and would love to know what they cost new? what sort of year it was being sold? others peoples opinions?
    couple of quick pics with the phone, just waiting for another set of lower mounts to fit it.

    Looks like a great match for the 95, i would love to have an eyeball down that bushnell:)
    Im using a old Japan Tasco 4x40 wide angle on the 95 with the lowest 1 peice mount i could find and i really like it.

    the optics are very clear and contrast is good possibly marginally better than the tasco? eye placement seems a little more critical but that is good as helps reduce parallax. im having to use high mounts with the tasco and even with the higher comb of the cs stock its to high so needed something that would sit with medium mounts to get correct eye placement. have not fitted it yet as waiting for mounts... im hoping it holds zero! will be interesting to see if poi shifts when changing ao?
    im still wondering what year these were new and how much it would have cost ? cost me the same as a hawke sport hd 3-9x40

    i had the same trouble with the eye relief (did a thread on it on here not so long ago) with the comb height of the cheek piece i went the same route with medium mounts and i never use bigger than a 40 lense scope anyway,it all worked really well together,i had a 4-12x40 prostaff on mine

    i dont know how much the bushnells cost back in the day but the bloke who shown me his bushnell said that the scope would have cost more than most rifles
