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.

    I have a small gun cabinet for my three rifles. Unfortunately I can't fit them all in with the scopes attached. They are a Wierauch HW30, HW97K and AA S410 TDR. I'm not bothered about the HW30, that just has a peep sight which does fit in the cabinet, but does anyone know of a quick change scope mount I could use on the other two?
    I think they have 11mm or 12mm dovetails, so is there a dovetail to Picatinny/Weaver to scope adaptor I could use. Or something similar? Ideally I would like to make all four of my scopes interchangeable.
    I know the adaptors exist, I'm looking for advice on which setup is the best way to quickly mount my scopes.

    Not the answer you are looking for but probably one that'll get repeated, the amount you'll spend on four decent quick release scope mounts would potentially be more than what you'd spend on a bigger cabinet!

    I know, but for various reasons, I can't fit a bigger cabinet.

    I know it probably isn't ideal, but couldn't you just break the TDR down and store out of the cabinet ?

    Even broken down, I can't work out how to get the TDR in with the scope on.

    The adaptors shown would just increase the dovetail size, wouldn't they? - ignore that, I just saw the other link.

    Also remembering that the scope will never go back on exactly as it came off. You’ll be often rezeroing.

    I think a picatinny mount would be close if you had some kind of a stop on the front or back of the rail to butt up against, it's still a gamble.

    I'm hoping it will be nearer than when I remove the scope completely.
    Providing I can stop the adaptors moving or flexing too much when I mount the scope, it shouldn't be a mile out.
