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.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:


    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.

    Hi guys. well after the trouble with my wolverine and losing confidence with daystate I'm back in the market for a new pcp i've got a few options i've been weighing up the two listed above both from the theoben family the traditional looking bolt action impact and the RAW with its side lever quite like the look of the HM 1000 with black laminate stock now for the price of this I COULD GET a HW 100 and a BSA R10.
    your thoughts on the matter what would you go for

    RAW TM1000 would be my first choice from all the guns at RAW but I would pick the HM1000 over the other 2 suggestions.

    Hi I currently own a Panther and a HW100, I ordered a TM1000 thumbhole black laminate stock about 6 weeks ago. Like you I looked at the various options. After reading several posts about poor quality and customer service from Daystate I ruled them out. To be fair though had my panther over 2 years with no problems, but I think things have deteriorated at Daystate.
    Read several good reviews about TM1000, I was also encouraged when Mike Tawn told me there would be a wait as they put quality before volume. Hand built by people who care in my books is worth the wait.

    RAW all day long - they are having good showings in competition results all around the globe. Superb rifles and good back up too, if you want accessories or spares.

    shot with a guy(Tony) at WAR on the English open he was using a tm1000, got to say if I didn't have my Walther and I was looking for a hft rig, I'd have one at the drop of a hat, very very nice gun's indeed

    I would agree If your buying new go for Raw, then second choice would be the hw100 for sure.

    Saying that I have a Rapid mk2 with Impact internals and I don't know how its performance could be improved on really its amazing, definitely what I call field target standard accuracy, only lacking quickfill and gauge which doesn't bother me, a sorted Rapid can be bought for around new hw100 money, but money easily spiral when your building a rapid from scratch as its addictive.

    Have a look for a mint MFR it is for me one of the best airguns ever made, along with the Rapid mk2.

    I saw a lovely looking MFR go not long ago for £800 but it had the hugget shroud/silencer and BTAS internals and lovely wood, it looked the business.
