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.

Remington Express - anyone tried it yet?

    Just read a review of the new Remington Express in Airgun Shooter. It's a pity they tested it with three somewhat obscure pellet brands and have not given accuracy charts but dwell on consistency of power output. However at £160 it sounds a reasonably good buy if perhaps the rifle seems a little on the hefty side.
    Has anyone tried one yet?

    It's a re-worked SMK XS20 with a few extra details. It has a Rekord Trigger mech copy.

    The XS20 is a chinese copy of the HW95. The chinese airgun forum love them and with a little tune and polish inside, shoots just like a HW95.

    For £160-odd, it would be worth a punt :)

    It also comes with a not impressive scope apparently.
    Not made in US but "far east"
    The brands they tested it with were:
    Defiant 4.52 7.5gn
    BS45 Black Pointed 8.5gn
    Thunderbolt 5.1gn
    I get the impression that the 5.1 gn pellet was used merely to achieve 1000fps velocity using a downrated Uk spec rifle whereas the rifle is sold in the States , in what we would consider an FAC rating, as a 1000fps rifle.

    So now Remington are doing what we thought would happen, selling SMK sourced rifles with their own name on them!

    Wonder how long it will be until Flying Dragon starts undercutting them in their home market?

    SMK are selling a rifle sourced by Remington, not the other way round. Seen a short report by Venoman stating it's one of the best Chinese rifles he's used. But hey, let's not stop prejudice get in the way of what could be a good gun for the money.

    SMK rifles have come a long way since the days of the B3/B4, their latest imports seem well made and sturdy

    I guess my reason for the OP was that there happened to be a very good review of a very reasonably priced combo. Many new to this sport cannot afford PCP's and their associated equipment and cutting your teeth on a decent little springer is a good entry point.
