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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  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.

    To clear this text box, click on the 'X' in the top right-hand corner.

    Right guys I'm currently waiting for my nice new mk4 to be made and can't decide what glass to put on top of it, i currently have MTC mamba, hawke sidewinder on my other rifles and would like something different. Must be of mil dot or some other form of multi aim point ret and side focus, up to maybe 16 mag, 40-50mm objective. Looking for good glass and good in low light. Prices up to around £400. Could anyone recommend me something I may not have thought of??? Thanks

    I have a Bushnell legend ultra HD 4.5-14 x44 side focus on my Mk4 panther. Using Daystate medium Blueprint mounts.
    Excellent scope has served me well.
    However just ordered a new rifle and have purchased a Lightstream FFP scope for that, no side focus but wow what a scope superb optics, first focal plane means that aim points stay the same no matter what mag you use.

    I use 2x tactical Sidewinder
    One 4.5-14x42 for hunting and a fixed 10x42 for HFT
    Very happy with both of them but you need the right hight mount for you gun or an adjustable cheek piece or you will curse a blue streak
    I did :D

    Scope choice is as subjective as rifle choice mate.
    What suits one person is no good for the next. The only way to choose a new scope (or rifle for that matter) is to try one yourself. Look through as many as you can and try all the functions.
    The only other advice I'd give is to buy the actual scope that you've tried because there is significant variation, even between the same spec models.

    Anybody had a look of the bushnell legend ultra hd? Read a fair few reviews and not heard a bad word, think I'll have a look at one, almost brought a vortex viper today until I realised it would only parallax down to 50 yards! Almost an expensive mistake!
