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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.

  4. PLEASE READ
    You are breaking the forum rules if there is no comment on a sales or wanted thread by either the buyer or seller. 
    Or regarding to members manufacturing things stating something is going to be discussed and initiated through pm.
    I.e. 
    A buyer in manufactured section hi I’m interested in some work by you pm incoming.
    Or seller in a wanted add, hi I can do that for you pm incoming regarding it.
    Or a normal sale, hi I want to buy your item
    If a manufacturer gets asked privately about a sale they should say to the prospective buyer please comment on my thread to adhere to forum rules.

  6. 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.

    I do like the minimalist look to them. Nothing fancy, just simplicity done well.

    Im getting the 2-7x33 freedom. But I want the rimfire MOA ret. My mind works in MOA. Duplex would be ok, but not my first choice. (this is going on a HW99).

    The weight was an issue when I put my EVX on, so I bought a CP3-12X32 and haven't looked back, I reckon I don't lose anything in lens quality or performance ove it's bigger brethren.

    Yes. I taped some mass (a tape measure) to the top of the Hawke I have fitted at the moment in an effort to mimick the 660g of the EVE. Whilst it didn't feel unuseable it did feel more than I'd like.
    I'll check out the CP.

    Scope is a little on the larger size but overall the balance seems spot on and sits nice to the cylinder not had any problems Fusty Fieldcrafter

    Apparently it's 487g, the only downside (if you can call it that) is it doesn't have an illuminated reticle.

    Nice find! I was tempted by the m8 6x40 in sales on here but I like to go lower mag sometimes.

    Theres a new one up for auction on the bay with the MOA ret which I think is better.
    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/403325639979?hash=item5de814dd2b:g:gG4AAOSwTV1hftkR

    Or a brand new one for £309 plus post. (based in Halifax)
    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/403320238250?hash=item5de7c270aa:g:gG4AAOSwTV1hftkR

    No collection to the seller, I just noticed them myself.

    I did try a Hawke sidewinder 10x42 on my ProSport but felt it was just too much scope. The Mamba lite I then put on suits it far better IMHO.

    I prefer the duplex myself. If I'm buying new I may as well get exactly what I want. I believe the rimfire version is parallax free at 60yrds which may mean you don't have to reset but other than that Id go for the hunt Plex/duplex. Unusual for them to be on the bay. Don't often see that.
