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.

  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.

    Looking towards future needs, what would people suggest for a mid-range PCP? Calibre not so important yet, but it needs a certain spec. i.e. regulator, gauge, anti-two pellet loading feature (whatever that's called). Also preferred would be a large capacity cylinder, safety, carbine if poss. Just need a general direction to start searching.
    Thanks

    hello, unless you put a budget and a bit more specs your not going to get many answers as there are lots of different PCPS new from £350 to ????????? when first thought to go pcp after a lumpy springer i took 3 months of search and info/views/comments/ test reports on what was available at that time and not then on here and decided on an AA S410K .22 oh and hand pump:rolleyes: but more new rifles have come on the market since then all trying to compete in a £350 to £550 plus bracket. i dont regret getting the AA but glad i changed to an air tank now 12ltr. and joined this forum.

    If you take low-end as AGS PCR1 and high-end as some thing like a Daystate [insert variant other than Huntsman] and split the difference then the HW100 is pretty near the middle and would be on top of my list, no doubts about it.

    It is pretty close to middle range if you think.of Brococks and Ultras as entry level and Daystates,EV2's and FTP900s as top class.

    Either way,it's the cheapest one that meets the requirements that I can think of.

    S510 could be worth considering too ;) .

    Hi Jim, what rifle are you shooting at the moment.
    A regulated rifle may reduce the range of very good rifles available to you and the benefit is not that great.
    I've been shooting for a few years and have yet to double load so don't let that get in your way either.
    If you are looking for vermin hunting, you probably won't shoot more than 50 pellets and competition shooting is limited to 40 or so shots so a large air reservoir doesn't have to be a deal breaker either.
    A few things for you to chew on

    Not sure of many rifles that have anti-double load,,, do you need this?
    Only saying as it will widen your choices if you don't need it.

    Hw100 is the only one if you do need it really, but is it reg'd :D

    Daystate Wolverine, arguably one of the very few that has all you asked for, but it's top end of the price range, you'll be luck to get one under £850 just now.
