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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    When I bought my new rifle three weeks ago at the Airgun Centre in Rayleigh, they already had the 510 in stock. Two guys had come down from Doncaster to buy one, and went away with that and an HW100!:eek:
    I had a look at it while I was there, and I have to say that yes, it's a nice gun, but whether it's £589.00 nice, I'm not so sure:confused:

    The side lever is the only difference otherwise basically the same old reliable great gun.
    The side lever makes things a little easier for cocking as well

    Apart from full auto, how do you get easier than the bolt system on the 410?:confused: (And no, I don't own one)

    Davy, the bolt system on the 410 can be a little awkward until you realise that you need to equalise the side loading by putting thumb pressure on the left of the bolt while pulling the bolt back with the finger pull on the right. Once you've learned that one it's easy peesy....I LOVE mine. Certainly wouldn't pay the extra for the side lever and the shroud.

    It's basically the same but with a side-lever action? Oh and as Steve said, a shrouded barrel :up:

    I wouldn't pay any more for one, as it doesn't really have much over the S410.

    You do exactly the same with my Falcon, Buzz.
    I've a feeling the lever is a gimmick, and is there more because the HW100 has one, ie. marketing creating a need that doesn't exist.:up:

    Don't fix it, if hit aint broke mate...I'm happy also with the bolt action on my 410:up::D, but I have also shot, what I call the tank gun, (WH 100) because its so heavy:down:, not because it has a better punch....that slide/side action is very neat:), But not so neat for the extra cash:down:

    Im just curious why the barrel shroud is such a talking point when it is only a gimmick!.:confused:.
    How fast and for how long would you have to shoot before a heat dissapation shroud is required?.
    Money for nothing!;)

    The shroud on the S510 acts as a silencer :p

    I think barrel shrouds make air rifles look heavy and out of balance. A silencer looks far nicer.

    I don't think the 410 will get cheaper, Air Arms have said the 510 is an addition to the range, not a replacement for the 410. In all fairness to AA, if I had a rifle that sold like that, I wouldn't be in a hurry to change it either!
