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.

one gun, two scopes, swapping around

    Does anyone use more than one scope on a gun?
    I'm using my S410 as a night rig with a Yukon MKI but would prefer to use my R10
    At the same time I also will need a day scope on the R10

    Just wondering if this would be too much aggro swapping scopes about, ie loss of zero
    Most the shooting is still daytime as by the time it gets dark enough to use the Yukon I'm ready for bed as I'm up at 5am every day

    I rarely last past 10pm these days
    A sign of getting older;)

    I have done it with QR weaver mounted scope rings.
    The system works well but you have to make sure the scope is returned to exactly the same position each time and i found it reduced zero loss using a torque screwdriver also.
    You will always get a small zero shift though.

    Thanx Titch

    Small shift isn't a problem as I can correct it quickly in the garden
    What about those quick release scope rings?
    Would they suit better?

    hello, you can buy rail stops with a grub screw they are like mounts without the scopey bit, just fit stop to front of rifle rail and leave on, put on photon and scope to your eye/ hold up against block and zero then you can interchange, your AAS410 has a stop pin? you might need to check POI at intervals

    Uli, I swap my photon and various scopes about on my LR constantly. I use a picitinny type rail as seen in the picture below, bottom rifle!

    Takes less than a minute and I've not noticed any significant loss of zero after months of doing this.

    I used to do this a lot, swapping my normal scope for NV. Used thumb screw weaver rings; quick change, quick zero check, and off out. It was only ever a click or two out, usually left or right, but like Titch says, a set torque might fix this.

    Always have a back up gun with a 'stay on' scope on though, for those moments where you get chance for a 'quick, lets go' shoot and realise you've left the NV on from last time!!

    I've taken that out ages ago and it is somewhere in my bits box
    The 410 will go out on loan for a friend who after saving for an airgun for month now has to get his car repaired

    Thanx Harry
    That is what I had in mind but I'm using a Viper Connect atm
    I'm thinking of swapping it for a Mamba with IR
    I need the IR or I loose the cross hairs shooting into shadows

    I still have my T500
    I was unsure what gun to use for swapping scopes about but as the single shot loader for the R10 is crap the R10 is the logical choice
    The T500 is the gun I will use for when I fancy a bit of HFT
    Going to set it up for using JSB heavies.


    The R10 had just had a Rat Works tune and will be a pure hunting gun unless I fancy taking it onto the range down Kibby

    I've got some thumb screw weaver mounts in 30mm, high or low. From China, so they aren't amazing, but you can have a set on me if you want.
