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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

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.

    It will take you by surprise at first.Persevere. They are brilliant rifles. Once you get used to them. I have a Taunus, same design different model. I took a squirrel the other day, 48 paces, head shot offhand - I was caught on a ride and it presented itself on a branch side on. Too good a chance to pass up. You might find it sharper than the springer you are used to, but it shoots superbly.Don't rest it on anything, or it will jump and you won't get a group. Don't hold it tight either, just let it sit there and do its thing. Built like no other air rifle, the bluing and engineering are superb. The gas is captive, it is a gas spring if you like. When you cock the gun you compress the captive gas, instead of compressing a coiled spring. When the trigger releases the gas expands back to normal volume again, at a very fast rate of knots, pushing the air behind the pellet. There is no twang of a spring, but there is still the inertia of the piston (a lightweight piston) coming to a stop. DO NOT try to over power it.You can, but you will burn out the piston crown and seals. The FAC rated gas ram guns have different pistons fitted to withstand the higher temperature created by the extra compression pressure. Another thing you will find is the in-line, built in scope rings.No scope mounts to buy or mount, they are integral, machined in line and captive on the receiver. Makes sighting in a doddle.
