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.

    '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.'

  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.

    Because it has a small airtank and the number of shot will be less, this is what i suspect.

    i doubt its much smaller than the BSA ultra's

    i think .22's are easier to make and is too complex to make a .177 model:confused:

    I do not know what the size of the tank is in the TDR or the BSA ultra, but they are different companies so they do what they think is best for their production.

    it is just the same to make a .22 or 1.77....

    I'd think that .177's are pretty similar to .22's, they just have different barrel sizes and the valves and things are probably slightly different to get the same power.

    .22 valves are probably quite small, .177's must be a real pain:confused:

    a1, I went around a few gun shops today and saw the S410 in the flesh, I saw a thumbhole one but it was left handed so I couldn't get a feel for it, I handled what I think was the carbine, this seemed very nice I have to say ... light weight, quite nice looking.

    I also saw the HW100, both the sporter and thumbhole variants, there's not much between the two so I'm going to look into it a bit more ... you'll be happy to hear I'm seriously considering the S410, but I want one without the over-kill rosewood.

    the 410 is a safe bet it will work, so will the german gun but its your money.

    i got the beech sporting stock.
    if you want i picture i can do that but i'm sure you saw it in the shop.

    all i can say about the s410 is perfect

    you probably wont need one of those Cog it will do enough in either caliber.

    i would get the carbine by the way.
    the classic is very long with a silencer:up:

    I think the one I saw was a carbine with walnut sporter stock ... also didn't have the rosewood which is good, I liked the feel of the S410 over the HW100 but I liked the actual workings of the HW100 more, i.e. the magazine, threaded barrel and cocking action.

    I'm not sure yet.

    the HW is quite a heavy rifle but it will make it more stable.

    when you tried the rifle i'm guessing you did it in a satnding position not kneeling as you would feel like an idiot kneeling or going prone in the shop:D

    the S410 is lighter but when i have a big scope and a bipod its heavy enough:up:

    i like a heavier rifle

    The HW feels nice and solid, and the side-lever cocking sounds nice and crisp, didn't try cocking the S410.

    I shouldered both but not properly, as I didn't want to point the gun at people in the shops.

    if you can be alone with the rilfe so you can get down and dirty with it you'l know which one you will want then:D

    seriously you need to try all positions and if you can belly crawl with it (if you stalk)

    if you add a bipod to the HW it will NOT make it forward heavy as the TH stock had a heavy butt part.

    with the S410 it will make the pivot point move forward.

    fine for prone and kneeling, not so much standing.
    the HW is best balanced

    cocking on the S410 takes a few cycles to get it smooth but after that rapid fire is very possible.

    if possible i can attempt making a vid but i dont have a proper cam corder
