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.

Night Vision Spotter (pard Nv019 Vs Pard Nv007)

    Hey everyone,

    Hope you're safe and well!

    I'm in need of a cheap NV spotter (not going to get anywhere near the funds needed for thermal).

    The pard NV019 looks like a good option (it's lack of zoom is perfect for airrifle use), but for a few more quid I could get the NV007. Can it be used as a spotter? It would also mean I could stick it on my springer if I ever fancy a night time session over my PCP.

    Thoughts?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Rich.

    That is the ideal you can spot with it then attach it back on to the gun to shoot pt

    Definitely a 007 for a spotter …. Works brilliantly, better if twinned with an IR torch of scanning wide flat areas though ( saves the battery life too )

    With the Pard you could also do what I did if you so wished.

    I bought a cheap Bushnell (knock-off) 16 X 52 monocular from the bay, which takes the Pard connector rings perfectly. In truth, it's nearer to 8X than 16X but that makes it even better as a spotter. It can be disconnected and connected back to the scope in about 2 seconds. It only costs about a tenner and it makes a really useful spotter when attached to the Pard Pard Spotter.jpg Bushnell.jpg

    For a tenner I thought I’d give one a try with my pulsar challenger and it was very good, rats the size of cats at 25 yds !

    If you intend to use the Pard just as it is then the 16mm is probably better as it has a base magnification of about 1.75X. If you're going to use it with the 16X52 monocular above then the 12mm with no magnification would be better.

    The 12mm Pard definitely has magnification.

    Friday is my shooting day and I’ll try to take a couple of photos with my phone if I’m able, when I was doing the research prior to my 007 purchase
    the info was 1.3 for the 12mm and 1.75 for the 16mm , there’s no doubt when looking through my scope and then connecting my 007 12mm the view is magnified.

    Didn’t bother with trying to photo the magnification of the 12mm Pard as Bruce confirmed it as 1.68.

    You'll have to be b***dy quick... it's already gone up to £7.99 but still a real bargain.
