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.

    As said drop the mag as the 50mm objective should drag enough light in. My 44 viper is good even at 8xmag.

    That is with the scope refocused to closer ranges after fitting the night vision?

    Have you parallax adjusted the front end ?

    On some AO scopes the lowest range is still too high for close range work. You can re-parallax the default range by adjusting the inner ring on the front lens assembly, which 'turns down' the AO ranges displayed on the AO dial.

    Example:

    Scope X has a low range of 50 yards (not uncommon - one of my Nikon Monarch scopes has this as a low ceiling) but if you wanted it to offer clarity below that range you would reparallax the front lens to, say, 25 0r 30 yards instead of the 100 it will usually be set at.

    This does mean your AO dial readings will be out of what but you should be able to re-map them easily enough by focussing the AO in at different ranges. You may find that the 30 yard AO dial reading now equates to 10 or 15, for example.

    On the one hand this may confuse some people but on the other it's a simple way of using the scope you already have.

    Target acquisition will still be a PITA with such a big scope, but it will allow you to use what you have for lose range work so you won't have to change unless you want or need to change.

    hello, if i presume you use an add on n/v you made i dont know but for short range ratting i find the red torch best, if i do use n/v i only put on lowest mag and lowest distance for 10 to 25 mtrs, even if slight blur you can get a okay vision to shoot, if rats i just aim between eyes and slightly lower. a 3x9 x40 AO HD hawke i use once i get the front eye sight diopter perfect vision i put some black sparky tape around to stop movement
