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.

    I've had an HW100 carbine and I've got an S410 Classic.
    The S410 wins hands down on every single count.
    Shot count, weight and balance.
    Lack of pellet fussiness. Reliability, consistency.

    I keep a set of Allen Keys in my range bag, so if I knock the barrel, I can release the band and I'm back to zero. Although I have modified the band, added another grub screw and dimpled the end of the air cylinder to locate the screws better.

    I've not had a go with a 510 yet, but I love my 410 so much that I can't see anything beating it.
    The bolt is lovely and slick, the mags cycle effortlessly.
    The key is to keep on top of maintenance. Keep the bolt shaft and breech area clean, lube little and seldom, and be decisive with the bolt.

    Looking at the HFT winter league standings, my little 410 is embarrassing a lot of pricey target rifles, Steyr's and the like. And it's not me, it's all down to the rifle!

    Sold my S400 last night as I bought a S510 a few weeks ago, very impressed so far. The side lever cocking action is Sssoooo slick :cool:

    That’s a very cruel way to make people vote!! How can you pick between them. It’s like asking you which one if your kids is your favorite.
    Both cracking but I really love my AA US 510. The weight isn’t and issue for me and it’s brilliant. I wouldn’t not sell her. The wife would go first.

    I've shot both and own a s410 TDR, its very quiet, the mod is very effective, I can easily plink in the garden and the neighbours are none the wiser. Its plenty accurate too, much better than me! I do like the side lever of the s510 though?

    To be honest there is really not that much in it either way.... :cool:

    I've used both and nothing in them to be honest. I have voted s410 because if you add a mod to the s510 it's pretty long and to hunt it does need one.

    But.....

    If the s510 was as quiet as the s410 carbine and same length I would vote s510 because side is nice :p

    I have an s510 carbine in .177 and an s310 .22 (which i have put into a s400 stock and added a quick fill valve). Both need a moderator, in my opinion, and both are extremely accurate lovely to shoot. If I had to part with one of them, I would probably keep the s510 because it is a beautiful rifle to cock and shoot, and over time, I have grown to appreciate the accuracy and range of the .177 caliber. To have both is pure luxury!!!

    I had a 510... even though it was meant to be a superlight carbine I found it very long and chunky ... I'd go 410 next time... oh and the shroud is a waste of tubing imo.

    Mine is spot on from 180bar, I get about 75 perfect shots then a further 15 or useable shots before I need to top up again.

    S510 for me ,the side lever is much smoother than the bolt version

    I have owned both and loved the s510.
    Great rifle..
