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.

    Hi all, I've finally settled on a hw97k next month (first rifle). I like the vantage+ IR scope 4-16x50 AO mil dot. What mount do people recommend as I read some scopes can fail with a recoiling gun, all new to me.

    One thing to consider when choosing a scope for an underlever is its overall length when mounted to the gun.
    If it is too long it can obstruct the loading port.
    The Hawke vantage is a well rated scope by all accounts.

    Welcome btw:up:

    Good choice of rifle, you won't go wrong with a Hawke Scope, I prefer one piece mounts on a Springer, enjoy your new rifle when it arrives and keep us updated :thumb:

    I had this exact combo on a 97k I used to own and had no issues at all with a standard 2 piece with arrestor pin

    Ive got a 4-16x50 sf hawk digi nite eye on mine with sports match 2 piece mounts.

    I like the sports match mounts.
    Never had a problem and use the pin too.

    I dont like ao to much moving around to focus and always feels like you could move the scope i n the mounts (if you know what i mean).
    Much prefer side focus.

    Lovely guns enjoy it... jsb or hnn ftts

    I'm slowly moving all my mounts to BKL.
    Self centering and the double strap ones won't budge on a 97.

    Welcome to the forum.
    Scopes are like women you have to try lots of them before settling on your favourite but seriously try and look through as many as you can . There quality of the glass is one thing but it has to fit your eye when you shoulder your gun especially on a springer.

    Great choice of gun, i bought my first 97 last weekend too:thumb:

    I prefer 1 piece mount with arrestor pin. Worth paying a few quid more for Sportsmatch or BKL. Medium height shoukd be fine for anything up to 50mm objective.

    As said above, check the length of the scope to ensure it doesnt protrude over the loading port.

    quite surprising how expensive those little mounts are, but no point getting crap ones on a good gun/scope

    I remember buying some hawke mounts to go on a webley xocet, took it out over the local pit had about 10 shots with it and the scope came off and fell inbetween some massive concrete blocks (17 years ago). Never did get it back.

    Its just been developed on (houses now) i did go back to look for it, out of interest but had been bulldozered flat.

    Look at discovery scopes from sure shot, I cant speak highly enough of the shop and scopes are much better than hawke for the cash

    I found the Hawke Scope mounts to be perfectly okay with a dab of locktite on them.
