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:

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.

New (to me) CZ 527 in .223 flavour

    I'm on crutches at the moment after an accident, and I have been this last two and a half weeks.

    It's wearing pretty blimmin thin...


    In a fit of pique, having been housebound for far too long, and after the purchase of a Browning A-Bolt in .223 went that strange shape of pear, I marched out today and attempted to cheer myself up with a bit of retail therapy.

    CZ 527 in .223, bipod, gunslip, 68 rounds of ammo, mounts, Edgar Brothers Opti-Mate 10x42 sniper scope:



    The gun is as clean as a clean thing with only a few superficial marks on the surface of the stock finish. There looks to be some interesting tiger stripe patterns going on in the grain of the stock so a winter project may well be to strip woodwork and give it a good oiled finish.

    The jury is out on the scope - it's not my first choice but I may leave it on there for a few weeks to see whether I take to it, or not, as the case may be.

    Optically it seems very bright and pin sharp, but it's just not my thing and doesn't really blow my skirt up.

    Either way, it's a capable rig as it stands and it has certainly served purpose because now I feel noticeably less p****d off than when I went out earlier today :D

    That could be the tramadol kicking in mind...


    The gun's previous keeper had put precisely 32 rounds through it since he bought it :)

    Until I find my feet again with the cannons I don't want to sink fortunes into it all. I spent a bit on the little .22 rimfire rig and bought the whole lot new - that's the one I will be using the most and, if what I do with air rifles is anything to go by, I expect to put thousands of rounds through it...

    The .270 will seldom be used and this .223 will also see limited use (famous last words).

    That only leaves FAC air and the more I think about that the less inclined I am to go for it.

    Ho hum...
