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.

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    look at the Air arms S410 instead.

    many shops will probably have them at a reduces price and then you can add that to a scope:up:

    Air arms have the uncanny ability to make air rifles that cannot be beaten.
    they are machines that shoot a pellet straight every time, very boring indeed!!!!:down:

    So your saying the S410 over all of the above then ?

    Must confess I prefer a .22 over the .177 anyday however.

    The Falcons are not big sellers. I rarely see one at the club. I see loads of S400 and S410 guns though. Another one to consider is the HW100.

    Are they not big seller and rarely seen because no one appears to ever have any in stock ????
    Been trying to find a local supplier with a PF18B or PF25B so that I can touch and feel it for the last tqwo weeks to no avail !!!

    Do like the look of the S510 and the reviews I have seen put it above the 410 ?

    Welcome to the forum:up:
    Big seller does not mean great!
    Is a VW Beetle better than a Mercedes SLK?
    Is the Sun a better quality newspaper than the Times?
    However the 400/410 is a great rifle, and in my opinion the 510 is simply not worth the extra money.
    One other thought, though.
    On average, the PF18B or PF25B multishot will cost you at least £100 less than a 410. Thats the price of a pretty good 'scope!:D
    It has a Walther matchgrade barrel, is equally well made (comes out of the same factory) and is every bit as accurate - but heres the killer - ask anybody who's had to use AA's after sales service what they think of it:down:
    You're just across the river from me, if you want to try my PF25C multi, you're welcome any time ( there's a review of it on this forum in the reviews section ):up:

    Not so. I sent an in warranty S400 back on a Monday for a leaking firing valve - I got it back repaired on the Wednesday.

    Also as NSP own both AA and Falcon why would aftersales be any different between the two?

    Falcons have shifted so few guns I doubt they'll be around much longer. I hope I'm wrong but you can't stay in business without shifting product.
