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.

  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. No longer allowed 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- We now do not allow political and religion threads anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section) unless Airgun related and they must be put in the Airgun related politics section..

    Staff will not move posts for you if you put it in the wrong section – it will simply be deleted. You will then have to type it all out again and put it in the right place, so heed this warning.

    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.

    I just use the standard 99 front sight .i was thinking of getting a truglo .i tried the front sight with the changeable inserts .not to keen on that .
    Try starting off at 12m first get some good groups then work your way back to the 20 .it dont matter if your not hitting your aim point or bull just look at the grouping .this worked for me .it takes a lot of practice mate .

    I've not pellet tested yet to be honest. Spent alot of time fettling the innards and getting the power right.
    I'd like to try a Truglo but at 32 quid a pop it's an expensive experiment. I did like that set up on a Terrus though . The 35 will remain on opens.
    I'll have to practise as you say but it would be nice to see what I'm aiming at.....:laff:

    I prefer solid irons to truglo as the plastic surround skews the sight image but I’m 35 and my eyes are ok.... ish.....

    Can't get any further depression on the Williams. Might have to buy the truglo foresight after all.

    I call a flyer on the offhand low shot.
    My wife shouted out 'you look like a knob' and burst out laughing when's she saw me in my gardening shorts, crocs with a target mitt on mincing in an offhand stance.........:facepalm:

    It's interesting the difference rested between 35 and 300.
    My theories are;
    I used a bicycle maintenance stand to rest my leading hand on and it was rocking. The 35 being a Rekord has a crisp let off.
    The 300 is a hair trigger. I think the trigger delay on the 35 coincided with the sideways sway to give a group. The 300 has a lightening fast trigger and lock time coinciding with the 177 velocity to give a true representation of the support moving.
    Or.
    The light breeze effected the 7grain hobby's.
