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.

  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.

    Just after a bit of info.I've not long bought a hw97kt.which up till yesterday has been shooting g bang on,however I went out yesterday and I couldn't seam to hit my spinner target (the size of a 5p) at 25ydsevery shot! Which is usually easy at that range.I set up a paper target and it WS shooting a few in close to the. Bull then random shots where high.low or left or right.so I checked scope was all tight which it was.then checked the stock screws and they did seam rather slack,so I've cleaned them and put some nail varnish on them to act as loctite. But it still aint right.when I point the rifle at 25yds the ao only becomes clear at 70yds on The scope.I'm wandering would that cause the problems? Thanks for any help.

    3) dirty barrel , when did you last pull barrel though
    4) chorny gun, how consistent it is

    If you are parallaxed at 70 yards then there is your problem.

    As Gasman,nikkos have had a few issues,I've always found Hawke Sport HDs to be better at the same price point.

    Yep i set the a o at 25yds and its really blurry so I looked down range through it and turned it until it became clear.that was at 70yds.I wasn't sure that if I zeroed it at that and didn't touch it then would it make a difference? It sounds like that's the problem. Thanks for the help chaps

    Just sounds like it's offset by 45 yard,if you set it to 10 yards,is it clear at 55 yards?

    I havnt tried it,but I will have a look in the morning.I don't understand how some shots are bang on then others are an inch or so in either direction. Could that be parallax error?

    If your perfectly focussed then there should be very little room for parallax error,how good of a shot are you?

    While aiming at a target, move your head up and down, and side to side, if the cross hairs shift of the target then px/error is at work.

    If they don't move, your bang on target:)

    Ah nice one thanks. I'm a pretty good shot. I'm only expecting to hit what I normally hit 9 times out of 10. I expect to have bad days and to miss shots that I normally hit.as I'm only human but something's not right. I will try a different scope tomorrow. Thanks

    It sounds more likely the scope has gone faulty & changing zero after each shot a common problem with some scopes on springers.Now everything is tight on rifle try another scope if one to hand .It should be spot on if the old scope is the problem.

    The old japanese made nikko's where great scopes,but the newer ones seem to be really poor quality and imho just a waist of money.
