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 have chosen to buy a BSA ultra,but I'm not sure what scope to accompany it,I would like a rather simple scope, maybe just a generic mildot scope? I have a Hawke Sr6 at the minute,but its just not right for me! Can anyone suggest some scopes withing the 80 pound price range

    Cheers

    cheers

    Hi Isaac,
    I would say in terms of quality, a Simmons wtc will be best for the money in my opinion. I may have one spare this week in the 1.5-5x20 which would suit the ultra down to the ground (i bought one for my ultra originally and use it on another rifle now)

    These scopes are very light and compact.

    Other options do involve Hawke range (but you own a Hawke and say you don't get on with it?) And the nikko Stirling mountmaster range which cost slightly less.
    You then have the jsr range of scopes. These 3 makes are all about equal quality give or take certain aspects.

    One thing I've learnt about scopes, is quality is more important than features, especially if hunting.

    Hi tom

    The reason I dont get on With the scope is just down to the gun at the minute, this is because I use chairgin pro and the aim points that it is giving me don't seem to be working, but as we learnt yesterday this is because of my probe o ring being knackered! The scope itself is really effective when working properly hahaha!

    I went to get some o rings today but they didn't have any 3x1mm ones,which I think is the reqired size for a mk2 s200???

    Cheers

    Hi Isaac,

    If you use aimpoints than the Simmons range won't be for you.

    The o ring Is going to be essentailly the size of your calibre (ie: 4.5mm or 5.5mm as it has to seal the barrel.) I would just order some online which are described as s200 bolt orings as these you know will fit but they are relatively expensive, but to save a few £'s by looking for some locally might not be worth it really. I would just get some correct ones ordered for the s200 to make sure it's all running as it should. They are only a few £ for a couple which should last you loads and loads of shots.

    You can always take measurements from these and buy any in the future cheaper.

    Any problems just ask.

    Yeh well mine is a .22. And I have decided to stick with the s200 as it should be back to performing at its best when I have changed my o ring! I have tried a couple today and they just wouldn't fit back into the breech, and the one that did just got stuck into the breech,which wasn't good but all.sorted now! Will just have to get some proper ones

    Glad to hear that hopefully you've saved money on a new scope and possibly taking it into a gunshop. For just the price of an o ring :D
