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.

    ive been considering buying another pcp as ive recently landed another permision where i think a multi shot pcp would be better suited,as to what pcp im not really sure yet so hence my post in the hope for a little advice
    im after something light and compact,multi shot,regulated and most of all accurate and reliable
    2 of my favourite pcp's ive owned in the past were an s410 classic which i got on very well with although the length of the rifle was sometimes a problem mainly when shooting from a viehcal window
    the second rifle i got on really well with was a hw100ks but only after i fitted an a&m cylinder to up the shot count and balance the rifle out better but by the time youve factered in the cylinder and then a charging system the cost soon starts mounting
    ive been considering a theoben rapid mk2 but from what i hear its hard to find rifles that havnt been 'tinkered' with down the garden shed? and can be a bit of a minefield
    so any other recomendations?
    multi shot with reliable mag/loading system,regulated,compact with good shot count,reliable and accurate?
    thanks

    Best gun to shoot from a vehicle is a BSA Ultra SE. I know I bought one specfically for the task and it does the job. But as a general everyday hunting rifle I much prefer my Daystate Huntsman (now the regal). Its light and got a decent shot count (the Ultra is only about 40 in 177).

    AA S410 carbine. A hell of a lot of rifle for relatively little layout, especially if you go secondhand.

    Robert lane again well proven with a heavy duty spring not spring washers heard nothing but good things about huma but rob lane was cheaper and DIY with a little bit of work used em befor and they last a life time mate whole point s it to e cheap as poss but effective sick of sending thousands in pps.

    Will eat my own words been a hater of air arms pcps for years but been converted by them in a real big way price for price therre unreal infact i could prob get away with out regging it but thats jst a bit of the pcp snobbery from theobens ect still left over atvb dave g

    I trust robert lanes work, I've met and spoke to him a few times and know he does what he can to make it as good as possible.

    Have had 2 rifles regg'd by him himself. And one modified.

    I know this sounds like the obvious, but a carbine fx2000 really is a nice rifle, its the only PCP I will own as I'm selling others so I only have one PCP and one springer (both Webley and considerable non standard mind)
    Regs work well in them and built solidly too.
    the stocks and finish are my favourite of any PCP.
