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.

    Thanks to Jon in Liverpool for selling me this:
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    I have spent some time - read "a lot" - of time doing some zeroing and pellet testing today at Atherton in door range - "name check for the range:D" and have been very pleased with the outcome. (about 250 pellets)

    I was a bit cautious as to whether to buy one of these or not due to a lot of negative posts regarding it. All I can say is - I've got a good one!:D

    I have never had a gun so "un pellet fussy", 12 out of 20 pellets I tried though it grouped in one hole at 30m, so I obviously gave up after that as I was loosing the will to live - 3 hours pellet testing is enough!

    Very nice action, repeatable time after time, and I'm not into comps - I've never even done a real HFT course. I'll have to go back and push it out to 40m and get a better conclusion as it was too good to draw more than scant information on pellets. JSB Heavies were the best performer in terms of both power and accuracy (sub 8mm groups and 11.6fpe) - b****r, I've just bought a couple of sleeves of H&N FTT and JSB 4.53s:eek:. Ohh well, I have a Panther which loves H&N FTT and my wife's regal loves the 4.53s - so what's a guy to do??

    So not a review as such, more of a - if you want it, go and get it, your more likely to regret not buying it in the first place as buying it and selling it on!

    Mine was an unmolested mint example, don't believe ALL the upgrades are a good thing.

    Nice one buddy.
    Bought one myself just a few weeks ago and loving it.
    Beautiful rifle all be it a bit on the heavy side which I don't mind.
    Don't know if mine is pellet fussy or not as I've only put AA Fields through it of which it seems to like so no need to try anything else.
    Cracking rifle that oozes quality.

    I went back last week and pushed the range out to around 40m.

    I'm still getting one hole groups of 5 pellets, and bigger cloverleaf groups with 10 pellets.

    Best ones so far have remained with JSB Heavies/Sovereigns/AA Express/Bisley LRG being the top 4, and most others I'd still hunt with.

    With the JSB Heavies you are going to get a sizeable increase in POI at 50yds and above..........................therefore a miss is more likely all things considered.

    I don't have the facility to check this indoors at 50m, but the 40m groups were good. There is a possibility of the heavy pellet loosing stability the further and slower it goes, but as every gun is different it really will come down to trial and error - just have to wait till Atherton Range get their 75m upgrade sorted, but it could be months.

    I assure you we're building it as fast as we can, we are perfectionists and we want it to be as good as it can be, so that shooters get the most out of it. I can promise it will be worth the wait, and worthy of our shooters :D
