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.

  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.

    You must be thinking this guy is loaded by now , I promise you i'm not , this has bean on order a longgggggggggggggg time.
    Had it for two weeks now , and have used it nearly every day with another air rifle I did a small review on.
    Now where do I start.
    Maybe by what other people have said , ugly ( maybe ), blingy ( if well machined brass is blingy so be it , looks cheep ( I don't think so ), gimmicky ( innovative, new ideas gimmicky ?, oh well you cant please them all.
    The sad truth is these comments are made by people , who haven't seen it in the flesh , haven't held it or shot it ( or cant afford it ) .
    The rifle comes in a well made hard case , when you pick it up for the first time , it does feel pretty strange , but put it to the shoulder it is well balanced.
    The magazine is easy to fill and load into the rifle , mag indexes well ,cock it by your right lug hole , which soon becomes second nature , fire it and there is noticeable twang , but that's down to all the workings being in that part of the stock that is close to your ear .
    I'm using the MTC scope which is good , but I might change it fore a more upmarket one later .
    The laser/red dot I think is a good idea, but you have to remember if you set it at thirty five yards , that's what you will hit , you can fire from the waist put your red dot on you will hit it every time ( if it's at thirty five yards ), move away an you will miss, i wouldn't try and adjust this out in the field , you have to use a very fine Allen key , adjustable through three small holes , better finding some place that you can take the plastic shroud off , very simple task.
    Bubble level the scope mount , another good idea, i get 200 shots + out of one fill .
    The pulsar is much shorter than I am used to ,at 29 1/2 inches or new money 75cm , and weighing in at 10.4 Lbs scoped.
    The but pad is adjustable up,down , left and right.
    I have done two hunting trips with it , and came home with a couple of rabbits and a pigeon , I have taken it around an FT and HFT coarse ( not in a comp ) and it was accurate and consistent.
    It is very accurate even out to 80 yards ( for the target shooters ), i haven't tried it any further .
    A very easy gun to get on with, not forgetting this is one of the 200 limited production run , but there are the laminate ones coming out , and the mat black one for you budding special forces types .
    I cant say i have used many bull pups , but this is the best one I have used , don't go by looks alone , pick it up ,hold it to the shoulder , even ask if you can have a go , i have let a good few people have a go on mine , and they have changed there minds about the Pulsar.

    Thanks for posting this.

    I'm still not sure about it for me, but I will get round to trying it and have no intention on condemning it until I have tried it and can give a better opinion. There is a video on you tube and BARs facebook page made by Lloyd, the manager I believe, at Blackpool Air Rifles. He is very open about the ups and downs of quality control at Daystate recently, but visited the factory and was impressed by what they are doing about it - and yes, they should never have dropped the ball in the first place, but who reading this has never messed up on occasion? (R10/HW100/FTP900 - all had problems and are new generation guns)

    I think Daystate are to be commended regarding all the new safety and "gimmicky" things on the Pulsar. Only time will tell how well they work, but reviews like this are starting to appear and the initial read is positive from my point of view. As for the "gimmicks" - PCPs were once considered a fad and not a real airgun, now I'd guess they make up the biggest share of all guns sold - go figure?

    Nice review first British attempt of a bullpup and we are all knocking it before given it a chance, looks aren't every thing ask my ex wife [ MEAN HER NOT ME LOL] its a brave attempt to get in the well established worldwide bullpup market. Daystate has had a good following its the price that puts me off as you aware FX are bringing out the wildcat which is half the price but not crammed full of technology like the Pulsar. Hope more British gun makers follow suit and start competing not whinging about air rifles from abroad. Thanks for you review enjoyed mm now where are you living so would like to shoot one!

    It's the quality control that puts me off more tbh. Spend four figures on a gun for it to go back in the first week.

    Happy the op his enjoying his as it's not a gun for everyone. Have you done any chrono strings to see what consistency is like?
