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.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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.

    Hello lads,

    Looking for a 3-9x40 scope for my hw99s .22

    Looking to spend up to £100, loads of good discounts to be had online.

    For mainly target shooting and occasionally pest control.

    Was looking at Hawke airmax EV, but there is so many out there.

    Would really appreciate some advice.

    Cheers.

    NEW-
    I'd go for a Hawke varmint 2.5-10x44 side focus half mildot, cost £99 posted online.

    Otherwise a nikko Stirling 3.5-10x44 ao ir with either mildot or lrx reticle is only £50-£80 posted usually.


    Cheers

    Im looking for the same mate. Must be able to go onto low mounts and not be overly clubersome so 3-9-40 max. Im currently lending a hawke panorama which is good. I quite fancy a closer look at the hawke hd 2-7-32 at £60 new but think i would prefer half mildots.

    the best way to choose a scope is not to ask which one of these should I choose,everyones eyesight is different,so go and look through the scope you want.

    Currently have the HAWKE HK3008 SPORT-HD 3-9x40 on my HW99S and it's more than adequate. However just waiting for my Hawke Nite-eye 3-12x50AO IR Mil as I landed one fairly cheap on the bay!

    First step for me would be to go have a look through a load.

    on my 99 I have the Hawke 2-7x32 and its a good combination. If it has to be 3-9x40 then the varmint is a good choice (if it suits you)

    cheers

    Thing with a scope is you just can't beat looking through one. I am a big Hawke fan, nearly all the scopes on my guns are Hawkes (apart from a couple of period scopes on seriously precious to me air rifles).

    I have run HD Hawkes on spring powered rifles for years, no problems. The light transmission is good for my eyes and the reticle choice is now more limited but still some useful small calibre ballistic reticles are used! A combination of a Hawke scope, Chairgun and a chrono and you have a great hunting set up!
