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.

    Well guys since shooting my HW77K I've really got into shooting but I fancy a PCP. Think I've narrowed it down to an S410K. Always had .22 calibre in air rifles but i only seem to shoot targets at the moment so would a .177 be a better option for me? I hope to gain permissions and go hunting but I'll be joining a club and shooting at a range for the time being. Also is it one piece or two piece mount for a PCP?

    Thanks Zak

    Good choice. It'll be a 2pc mount on the S410. In short get a .177 - plenty of threads on the forum devoted to calibre discussion ;)

    the 400 series is an excellent choice. personally, i'd go for .177 over the .22 due to better trajectory. if you needed a harder hitting pellet for hunting, choose a heavier pellet (altho for hunting, accuracy and pellet placement is priority - if your quarry is hit in the right place, it will fall, regardless of pellet size). as for mounts - you will need the 2 piece types - a one piece mount will bridge over the pellet loading port, causing access issues.

    or have a little lookie at the S510? I was hell bent on S410 for the bolt action, but once I caressed the silky soft side lever of the S510, I was at her mercy... I must have her I thought and paid my money... we held hands all the way home and its been love ever since.. :) deathly accurate, almost pointless target shooting because of that fact... so I only hunt now, the only paper I shoot is zero checks. She has ended almost 280 lives since being born just last year

    You won't be disappointed with a carbine s400 or s410 mate. I was glad to see a secondhand thumbhole stocked .177 s400 carbine come up last year, I got myself a fantasticly accurate hunting/target rifle that fits me like a glove and hasn't missed a beat. I find AA Diablo Field pellets drop any quarry on the spot and make the rifle more accurate than me out to 40+ yards.

    Good choice......:up:

    The side lever S510 is great but you do pay a bit more for it over the perfectly usable bolt action of the S410
    Its also worth looking at the S400 as again it is quite a bit cheaper than the S410 and you can fit the Rowan engineering after market magazine set up although it is only a manual system

    I have a AA 400 in .22 - great Rifle

    I have plenty of AA400 / 410's on on my Club Ranges - Have seen a few 510's - but not lately ;)

    But .177 is Best Calibre on club Ranges - Especially if you shoot resetting Targets

    Good choice with the S410 i brought 1 about 6 months ago and i love it. i love it so much i've just brought a TDR S410F to go with it :) . as for the choice between .177 and .22 i'd go with .177 i've got both and use them for hunting. i find the .177 much easier to shoot with. you don't have to hold under or over much. with a 35 yard zero its pretty much on the crosshairs from 10yards out to 40.. and it might be my imagination or i might just shoot better with .177 but the rabbits seem to drop everytime without any drama or suffering.
