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.

    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.

    I have that viper fitted to my Air Arms 410.Brilliant scopes for what they cost.They are quite a heavy scope and the high turrets arnt to everyone's liking though,you need a large gun bag to fit your gun in.The MTC Mamba is the same scope with lower turrets,you may want to consider this too :up:

    I got a Falcon 10x42 on my wolf, great scope and the extended reticule is great for those longer shots.
    It's up to you what you buy, but i would be looking at a scope with lifetime warranty if i was going over the £200 mark and the MTC only have 12 months.

    thanks guys .didnt know the mtc only had a year warranty yet they seem very popular.i noticed hawk scopes have 1o year warranty and are cheeper but only have a 25cm tube rather than a 30mm tube so any views from the more experienced would be much appreciated as i dont want to put a poor scope on a top gun.

    The MTC has a fairly shallow depth of field. The Hawke is better in this respect. ALL you get from a 30mm tube over a 25mm is a potentially greater range of turret adjustment and more expensive mounts. Tube size does nothing for optic quality. Whilst I'd say the Hawke just edges the MTC on optic quality the MTC is better made.

    sorry for sounding thick darren but i was led to believe that the 30mm tube helped drag light in when shooting in low level light? i do alot of early morning and dusk shooting ,also when lamping for rats like my light as low as pos so thought the 30mm tube would be better,on saying that the mtc is more expensive:confused:
