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.

    '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.

    I've just recently bought a new TX200 HC, having stupidly unloaded, for no good reason, an old but reliable one,which had suffered from unsympathetic storage but shot well, a few years ago.

    Anyway, it's a 177 where the old one was a 22, and after a bit of b*****r*ng about with the Bushnell scope I had, it's shooting beautifully, "meet the new TX, just like the Old TX" to paraphrase The Who . I'm still not sure about the fishscale marking on the stock, but it does give it a posh upmarket look. The fellas at Solware are always very helpful , I face bankruptcy every time I go in there, so many guns, so little time. They showed me the Walther LGU, but as well as the schnabel tip which I hate on any rifle, I just couldn't buy a vurrin gun. Yeah, I know, the TX has a gerry barrel and an Eyetie stock, but the profits presumably stay in the UK.
    It seems to be easier to cock than the old gun, none of the graunching of levers and protesting spring of cheap guns; no need for me to mess with that excellent trigger; discharge is a nice thump, no spanging eardrum paining noise of protesting mechanism.
    I used AA Diabolo and also H&N FTT pellets, with similar results, in fact I was told at another gunshop that H&N supply the AA Pellets, (True?)
    The rifle has such a deep, rich bluing, and a fine finish on the stock, I love to just hold and admire it for the looks, between shooting it o'course.
    So, good shooting, great finish, great looks, and from a British Company. Life is GOOD!

    is this the best Springer in the World? Well, better shooters than me will be able to comment, but my quest is over.

    good shooting, everyone
    Dave

    I dont even think its the best version of the TX200 you have there.
    No doubt people a lot more in the know than me will be able to comment.

    By the way I personally find that fishscale checkering very nice.

    Air Arms pellets come from JSB, not H&N.

    Have fun with the new toy :)

    Wonderful, Nigel Farage tries to oust Terry Doe....
    One assumes that "gerry" (as opposed to Jerry) was a subtle play on "springer" (no, I rather thought not!)
    A rather long way from the best springer in the world, a full length TX would have been slightly better (efficiency, smoother cycle etc.) and a MK I or II better still for reasons that I shall not trouble you with.
    But, a splendid rifle, enjoy it and learn to master it, try not to let the nasty foreign bits and the ammunition trouble you too much. :D
