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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.

    Has anyone on here had some fettling done to their rifle by these guys? If so how much do rate the work they've done as I'm thinking about sending my R10 to them.

    Paulairgun on this forum I think would tell a very different story to the ones posted above. £300 sounds steep to me.

    I saw the remnants of what was purported to be a gun that Ratworks had worked on and IF it was a gun he had worked the quality was shockingly bad, the gun ended up with another well known tuner to have it all put right when I saw it .... Then again I have heard as above of good work.

    In honesty tho Jon, you had issues with r10 from the "well known tuner" soon as you cocked, it would fire without touching trigger.

    You will hear good and bad about many tuners, from the work I have seen from airtech, ratworks and xtx have all been good.

    You silly silly boy. I hate to take the shine off your Ranger but we all know who owns the best s200 out there don't we? ;) :nana:
    Being serious for a moment, my s200 had already been worked on by ratworks before it came into my possesion and it seems to be a decent job.

    More a comment on the metal work that had come out of a gun that had been fettled by Ratworks. My issue was related to set up which got sorted rather than shoddy metalwork inside the workings of the gun. But all fixed under warranty for the issue I had.

    I agree they can all be good and bad but the acid test is how a problem is dealt with.

    I can only speak as I find, just as you have mate. Never had any faults with s200. No one is perfect and things do go wrong. I would be happy with any of the tuners mentioned tbh. Another one to mention is tench, I have a s400 regged and tuned by him, so far superb is all I can say.

    Hope you and family are well big man, missing you up bisley mate.

    Your S200 was brilliant.

    Thought you had stopped going up Bisley Len. We need a catch up mate.
