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.

    Thank you.

  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 bought hw90k. My old sights 4x32 seem to be moving around. whilst trying to zero them in: I get a tight group of 3/4shots, then seems to jump 4 -6 inches then repeats a group then moves again?! Me or sights?
    Any recomendations as what to buy? hunting use mainly.

    Hi,
    At a guess, I'd say it's as much to do with the mount as anything else ( scope creep ). I don't know how deep your pockets are, but on my HW97 I'm using a BSA Essencial 3-9x50 which works nicely for me and comes complete with a one-piece mount for £60.00 - cheap I'd say. Hawke scopes seem to be well liked and JSR own brand good value for money, but there's a hundred ways to go.:violent3:

    Before i recommend you a scope i recommend you that you buy DAMPA MOUNTS...this mounts is what all springers should have one to save you from breaking scopes or losing POI

    As for a scope i have a AGS 6X40 miltdot and love it. For the money it is worth every penny

    After the damba mount look if you can find Leapers 3x9-32AO an exellent choice for small scopes that you are used to. They stunt heave recoil also. Xristos.

    I don't really understand all the problems with this "scope creep" and "zero shifting". I don't mean I don't understand the mechanics of it, that's obvious, but I've used scopes on some pretty awful springers..the latest being the Edgar Bothers model 60, which has a kick nearly like my Beretta Silver Pigeon 5, but I've always used AGS scopes and never had a single problem with them.

    what cal is your 90?
    ive owned both cals of hw90, the .22 was fine but in .177cal i shattered
    the lense in two w.t.c. scopes.
    the .177 90 is well known to be a scope eater as the 90 uses the pre h.e.
    gas ram.
    as far as scope choice goes make sure it is spring gun rated , .
    does a nice rws 4x12x42 for around£50 with pa adjust and for the money there spot on.
