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.

    hi. i would like to get a pcp rifle and have a couple in mind.

    first of all air arms s410.

    Is it a good gun. there are so many different types to choose which one is best keeping in ming accuracy is important. and one thing that havs always bugged me is how far does the bolt slide out. also for example is the pressure gauge shows half will it shot with less power them when full.

    bsa superten

    i have heard good things about these guns and like the look of them. but can you fill them up with a pump or do you have to send them away to be refilled??? can you fill them whilst on the gun. and how do you know when they are empty.

    thanks
    Stalker

    The S410 is an excellent gun. The bolt moves about an inch or so to cock the gun. The gun will work at full power from around 180 bar to 100 bar. Above and below that the gun will be underpowered. At around 50 bar the gun will dump the remaining air but you shouldn't be using it that low anyway.

    The S10 is a heavy gun with a reg that is less than reliable. They can be refilled with a pump but it's hard work as they fill to 232 bar. Pumping over 200 bar can be quite taxing. Better to get a divers tank. The bottle has to be unscrewed to fill it and this act often eats seals so you'll need a good supply.

    The best way to know when a pcp is nearing empty is to count your pellets out beforehand. If you know that your gun should do 100 shots to a fill then fill it and count 100 pellets out into a pouch. When the pellets are gone then the gun is ready for a fill. The gauges you get on guns are notoriously inaccurate and you should rely on the scuba tank or pump gauge for a better reading.

    The 410 is a great gun.The mag system is excellent,the barrel is thin but I've yet to hear any one fault it ! Compressor is a no as there isn't many that would pump to 190 bar.:up:

    The later 410 has a safety catch built into the trigger.Yes a regulated gun is better but expensive.Standard guns are still great .:)
