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.

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.

  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.

R10 Mk2 .177 - new to me

    Hi all.

    There I was scanning the trading pages not looking for anything in particular and came across a left hand R10 Mk2 in .177 flavour. Decided I was interested and spoke to the guy who was selling and he seemed like a decent chap. We chatted a while and everything seemed ok so I arranged to go for a viewing. Long story short - I bought it. The package included a Mamba lite - which I am happy with as I already own one and they suit my needs.

    It has been blueprinted by JB (last August) and has a shortened barrel shroud with a threaded barrel to accept the 1/2 inch gubbins - all done by JB himself and have the invoice/letters etc. It currently has a VC silencer on it, and is pretty quiet.

    I really like the grain in the stock - which is what kind of sold it for me...that and being a left hander as you don't see them up for sale that often.

    Ran it over the chrono and it has a 5fps spread over ten shots. good enough at 11.2ft lbs.

    I am hoping its going to give my HW100KT .22 a run for its money over the coming weeks/months. Pics have been uploaded but apologies for quality.

    Thanks for all the comments - the wood is what really sold it to me...that and the proof of the blueprint :)

    Paddy - yes 8.4gr AA Diablos....I already have a couple of tins, so that was a bonus. I will of course give them a go on the targets just to make sure.

    cheers

    Wow that looks sweet, love it.

    Keep saying I don't need to try any more airguns until I see something like that lol and it pulls me back to the R10, those stocks have got to be the best on the current market, wood is absolutely superb.

    I really like the shroud and silencer set up on yours also, very cool.

    Enjoy it mate.

    Like a lot of people it would seem a rifle I'm considering myself especially as it's available for a left hander your's is an exceptional example you must be very happy with it.

    Thanks again for all the comments - it was mainly the wood that sold this - as well as the shortening of the barrel, very pointable now. It was a bonus that it had been blueprinted and that JB did the shroud/barrel work.

    I have been umming and aahing about a R10 and the left handers don't come up that often....to be honest its probably 3 months earlier than I could of done with....but never mind :)

    Just got to wait a week before I can take her out - work always gets in the way :)
    cheers

    Stunning piece of kit there mate. Just right.

    The R10 is one I have to own, I drool over most of the customised ones.

    Lovely grain and a shortened shroud, just looks the danglies. I know if I ever get one it will just be an enormous money pit, the pics on the XTX site alone have me bankrupt with what I'd want done. Hope she's all you're hoping for, the looks alone boot the HW in the ribs. :D
