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.

    I’ve fitted my new Pard 008p and begun the zero process. I have corrected the windage successfully, however I cannot correct the elevation, it is maxed out on the ‘-300’ setting and I still need to bring the reticule about 2 inches lower?! How do I go about this

    thanks

    You need to shim the back end where the last screw is that attaches the Pard to its mount .

    Each set up/rig is different, as mentioned it’s a bit of trial and error but shouldn’t take long at all, when mines was on my HW I ended up with the 0.9mm shim I think and it was spot on with minimal clicks out from 0 0 on both axis .

    Welcome to the world of the horrible standard Pard mount.
    Shimming, sometimes even side to side is necessary.
    There are however some better quality aftermarket mounts that make the process easier.
    Eagle Vison do one, ZB Lite make one.
    These are a far better solution to the issue...but shimming will work.

    Regards,
    Rhys

    I bought a cheapo dovetail to picatinny rail off Shamazon to fit on the HW then one by one tried the shims either from thickest or thinnest but if you have two try the thickest first if you have to come down a couple of inches .

    I had to shim mine as well, it took 6 slithers of a coke can, when I put the 6th slither in my, I only had to move the windage 2 clicks and the elevation 2 clicks.

    Despite what some may have you believe including that video...:facepalm:

    The pard mount is a 20mm WEAVER mount...NOT 9-11 dovetail

    yes... it will bodge onto a dovetail rail but it will sit WAY over to one side and have loads of threads exposed on the mount screws... WRONG!!

    it’s designed as a Weaver mount... which also fits picatinny rails.

    An adapter rail from Ant supplies or amazon will sort you out

    also... remove the tiny silver arrestor block on the underside of the pard mount... you don’t need it and it causes havoc with pic mounts (even worse if you slap the pard straight onto dovetails)

    it will push up the front of the pard causing elevation problems

    Once you have the pard set up on a picatinny rail... you may still need to add shims between the pard body and rear most mount bolt to raise the rear slightly. It doesn’t need a lot to make a huge elevation difference.

    the ORIGINAL pard mounts are solid and problem free... I’ve had no issues at all with my July 2019 model

    but following the introduction of the LRF model in late 2019 the mount was changed... and then all the shimming problems started.

    some folk like to buy expensive aftermarket mounts... they work too

    but personally I don’t see the point in paying £100 when some pieces of thin alloy work perfectly as shims and won’t need touching again as long as that scope is on that gun.

    if you swap your pard 008 onto different guns often then these aftermarket mounts make a lot of sense :thumb:

    Used an old metric feeler gauge set when I shimmed mine as they had the same size screw hole in them as the Pard fixing screws ie 5mm.
    When fitted to my CZ HMR it required a .70 shim, when I changed it to my CZ .22lr it required a .30, you just trim the width down to fit the slot and cut to the required length.
