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.

    Hey guys...just wondering...I am buying an s200 in the morning, all being well...I have been told they should be serviced every 4 or 5 years or so, and the service is around 75 quid? does this sound about right, and when I go down to view it in the morn is there anything else I should look out for and check for? I wont have a chrono with me, so wont be able to check the power?...so I wont know if it leaks?...

    Also, it comes with a filling adaptor, but I will struggle to afford a bottle or pump at the moment (unless anyone has one going cheap!!)...would the local gun shop fill it for me, and would they charge much to do so?...also, are there any complications in them doing it? I.e. would they want to know its fully serviced before they fill it up?

    Cheers for your advice guys!

    I have had a few s200,s...great guns and never had the need to service one, also never had a problem with any either. Best fill pressure i found is 165 bar....i get 35 good consistant shots in .177 you will get more in .22. A good gun shop that deals in airguns should be able to fill it for you....not sure how much they will charge...but shouldnt be much.

    not sure of the shot count of a s200 but if you want a shop to fill it everytime it gets low you will be there very often. if I were you, if you happy with the rifle and happy with the way it shoots then don't worry about services yet. if you shoot at a club then chances are you will be able to get the rifle chrono'd. the club may have one or one of the guys there may let you use theirs. or take It to a friendly gun shop and ask them if they would chrono It. the thing you shud sort out first is a bottle or pump.

    Whereabouts in Suffolk are you? If your close your quite welcome to use my air bottle and chrono (although I haven't used the chrono yet) :) they have a very small tank so you really need a pump or bottle as an ongoing thing but I don't mind doing an initial fill.

    hopefully the bottle will have air in it when you buy it so you at least test it cocks and fires as it should. If it doesn't have any air in it then I would ask why (as most people store with air in).

    i love mine, nice and light and very reliable (although I haven't had mine long).

    good luck with the purchase.
    cheers
    Tim
