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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    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.

    Hey Jay. I should've remembered. Mine does too in natural light and to a certain extent under florescent lighting but under other artificial lights it's more graphite. :D

    Yeah mate, the only time you actually realise it isn’t black is when you sit it next to something that is true black.

    I reckon that nothing comes close for the money! Brilliant mod....

    Are you trying to improve sound reduction over the mod already fitted to your XL ?
    If so I'd look at the HW. Couple of inches longer than the one on your rifle but excellent in terms of sound reduction.
    Plenty come up used at around 30-35 quid.

    The BSA VC isn't a bad silencer at all, and almost as quiet as the HW, but is calibre specific. Done by a reducer in the end cap. One with a .22 reducer won't be as effective if your rifle's a .177. The VC is a similar size to the HW.

    Welcome and good to have you aboard. This forum, as well as being informative, instructive and all that is great fun and everyone is really helpful.

    I have an Ultramax and it’s a great rifle. Very accurate, easy to use and handle to hopefully you’ll find the same.

    Enjoy the forum, cheers, Mike.

    Hi @NewOnAir and welcome to the forum. This place is full of people who know literally Everything about airguns. Don't be afraid to ask Anything! I can guarantee that somebody will be able to help you out. Just remember, the only daft question is the one not asked... :D

    I agree, two is an absolute minimum! Three is only just enough, four is passable! Five, well........that’s the start of a collection!!

    Joking aside, if you should ever decide on a second one, my advise would be to make it a quality springer. If you can master a springer then your shooting will be so much more enjoyable.

    Welcome, this is a great place to be a member of.
    Nice gun, was looking over one the other day and was struck by how light it was even with a 60mm scope, a featherweight compared to my Hw77k.
    Imho everyone should have a Springer rifle and apparently yer not a man in these parts unless you have a Hw80 or at least 3 Hw77's.
    Preferably tuned.
