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.

    Take a look at the Hawke range by Deben , no need to spend anywhere near that money on a hunting scope , a good 3/9x40 will do , il post a link if that will help

    Ive recently got a mamba 4-16x50. Great optics with the scb reticle. You wont be disappointed and at £210 at most places is just on your budget.

    Try and look through as many scopes as you can and see what you like and suits you :up:

    A hawke 3-9x40 HD or even 3-9x50 HD ir scopes can be picked up new for under £100 if you want to push the boat out even more a mtc mamba lite scope is still under budget.

    Lots of scopes to look at in your price range, the hawke panorama scopes are also good and there's Nikko range to look at too but as always try your best to look through them before buying :up:

    of all the scopes I would not buy any of the hawke range, I have known of one or two fall to bits, and read about some problems on this very forum. mtc range I would recommend.

    I would definitely try and look through some £50 scopes and compare them to £200 ones if I was you for airgun ranges. Look at their size and weight as well as clarity, also if you're hoping to use your gun in low light conditions for hunting, then an illuminated reticule can help along with a 40 to 50mm adjustable objective lens. If you looked through one of these.. http://www.uttings.co.uk/p103338-nikko-stirling-mountmaster-3-9x40-ao-ir-rifle-scope/ I think you'll be very pleasantly surprised by the clarity and content for the money.

    If you look at the Uttings site above, you can find plenty of scopes to gobble up your £200+..........:up:

    I have used Hawk HD range with no problems. Also my Hawk sidewinder tact. Is one if the best scope I've ever had.
    if you prefer light good scope mamba lite should be fine.

    Hawke Panorama with half mil dot suits me fine, along with my MTC and Nikon. Dif rets, but each has it's uses. Ideally, try before you buy
