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.

    Hi I'm thinking of getting r10 shortened from 15" to 12" for compact ratting purposes and getting the power set accordingly, but I am thinking of joining the local club to try my hand at hft in the new year.Will the shorter barrel be a disadvantage for hft or will it be not be a problem?should I leave alone or do it what do you experts think? Cheers guys

    Hft will be fine with a shortened barrel.
    You will get less shots per charge though.

    Shouldn't be a problem. HFT targets are set at a maximum of 45 yds. There are a few R10s in this seasons Daystate Midlands series. Many have short barrels including mine,and my ability is the only thing affecting its performance!

    in a distant galaxy, far far away ....... actually
    as long as you have it shortened and reset correctly, then performance and accuracy wont be an issue mate. personally, i think that the r10 is one of the best rifles going ..... but the looks are improved by shortening.
    get it done by either darrin(xtx air) or john bowkett

    Surely at 11.8 he's running a serious risk of going over the limit should he choose the "wrong" pellet.

    if you just want the r10 shortened so that its compact for ratting, why not just get the shroud shortened. it will be cheaper than having the barrel shortened and you don't have to worry about losing shot count. that is if your r10 is shrouded of course.

    I sent my R10 to Xtx for a x tune, tench reg and a BSA ultra barrel (think there 12"), I've also fitted a huub shroud and I love it. It's a pretty short compact set up now. Shot count does go down but I'm getting over a 100 shots in .177 from a 200bar fill down to 100ish bar. At my local range it hits little spinners for fun @ 30 meters, i love this rifle

    If the customer wasn't happy he should have sent the gun back, as has been said before, 11.8 is sailing a bit close to the wind IMO

    If it is accurate as it is I would leave it alone shortening it by 3 inches won't make a great deal of difference- imho its not worth the bother.
