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.

    Guys, iv searched through the site and i cant find it anywhere! :confused:

    Im sure there was a thread on here that detailed a way to mount a cam like the Ns.. it used a couple of different size pipes and some shrink wrap! im in the process of building mine now and although i have a way to mount it using a weaver rail id really like to mount it up close...

    If anyone can post a link to the thread iv been looking for id be very grateful! :D

    It's going to depend a great deal on your camera and scope. A way that works on one scope and camera won't work on the next.
    Your best bet is to take some measurements and then go to your local plumbing shop.
    Using plumbing fittings won't allow you to mount the camera closer than using your weaver rail does though. There will be an ideal mounting distance for your camera scope and lens and this won't change however it's mounted.
    If you wish to use your nv on many different scopes stick to the weaver rail as the nv can then be just clicked from one scope to another. If you only use one scope the plumbing fittings look tidier.
    Cheers Andy

    As Andy said you won't be able to mount it any closer using tubes. I think that the Mamba has a threaded eyepiece which would allow you to use some of the camera adapters to fit it to the scope and you may be able to use something similar on the camera, depending on the lens etc. There is some info here http://www.airgunforum.co.uk/forums...-to-hold-phone-to-scope?p=1017468#post1017468 which may help explain.

    This is probably the one you are remembering.
    I used this guide as well, also on a Mamba.
    I used a different type of PVC connector, a type with a o-ring as well, but hard PVC palstic ont he outside of that.
    The outside diameter of the pipe was just a smidge larger then the inside diameter of a Mamba without the flip up cap.

    i used a heatgun to heat up the plastic ppie and when it was just getting a bit soft I then shoved it into the Mamba eye piece.
    I then used a couple of wet paper towels to keep the eyepiece cool (just as a precaution)

    Waited a couple of minutes until the pvc solvent pipe was cooled down and hardened again.
    Then the fitment is as perfect as it's even going to be.
