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. 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.

    A 300 stays on the bench forend resting on the rest. As a right handed shooter the left hand rests on the top of the pistol grip to secure the bach of the stock and the right hand cocks the oh so easy and pleasant lever. Then with the right hand still holding the lever the left hand thumbs in the pellet
    What is the difference between the two versions? How do you rate them. I have never fired one but I am getting one on Saturday.:) Can you still get spares?

    I will let you know about the 75. It has recently been fully serviced by Dave Price so should be spot on as apparently with these guns Dave is the man. I bought my 300su from a forum member and the 75 was sold to Dave by the same member both guns serviced by Dave price and my 300su is superb. But then the 300 serviced by my Nephew is every bit as good. If you look at the cheekpiece you could shoot this gun quite comfortably. upload_2021-9-10_8-41-8.jpeg upload_2021-9-10_8-41-8.jpeg

    Cautiously bloody terrific. Nothing fantastic but first shots at only 15 yards but very consistant. Very very pleased. Also oiled walnut and adjustable forsight insert. upload_2021-9-11_16-29-35.jpeg upload_2021-9-11_16-29-35.jpeg upload_2021-9-11_16-26-56.jpeg

    Early days, hours but how is she vs the 300?

    As pleasurable to use?

    I have a lefty 75 with my name on it but not sure whether to go for a 300 or not - even the righty on here

    As you say very very early days. I am rapidly building a small collection. If you have found a lefty in good nick in a 75 I would grab it with both hands and hold on tight. It is great to shoot. One side of the open breech is completely cut away and the base of the breach is flat. So a dropped pellet just needs a flick and is gone. I would not hang about I would get it. It may beat the 300 or not but its a great gun. Unless i have been hugely lucky which I doubt. Its every bit as nice to use as the 300. In some ways nicer. The lever pushes back then the design of the lever takes over and it closes on its own. There is no catch. Mine has an adjustable forsight so no need for different inserts. I say that I have not tried it yet. I may try that later. Great gun. Dont go for a right handed 300 whilst you have a left handed one of these easily available. I am over the moon with it.

    Yes Bob it does. Its an 83 oiled walnut and nice walnut. Its not laquered. No need for a reblue. Seals done by Dave Price recently. Its been chronoed by Dave Jaisalmere at about 7.3 ft lbs with AA Express. I think QYS beat the air arms express in accuracy. Over 7ft lbs is a lot for this gun but its better for holding in the wind I imagine. 15 yards is not that far but its respectable with opens. Lovely to use and highly recomended. Dogs and two dicks comes to mind.:D
