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.

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'm looking for a new scope for my newest rifle.
    It must be:
    1) clear
    2) light (the gun is back end heavy)
    3) relatively compact
    4) multiple aim points if possible, though its for a .177 so a couple of aim points will suffice
    5) AO preferred or have a wide in focus abilities.

    The urgent scope which suits my needs best is one I already have, a cheep 4x32 bushnell scope, but thought I would see what's available before I hunt one down.

    The cheaper Hawke Sport HDs are good but if your after high quality,any of the MTC Viper or Mamba ranges are perfect.

    no aimpoints- i's say simmons wtc 1.5-5x20 (you'd be suprised how bright and how deep the focus range goes.

    with aimpoints- probably a mountmaster tbh, they are great value for money scopes and under £100 isnt going to make a huge optical quality difference imo.

    bushnell do the fixed px trophy's with mildots. but i wasnt too impressed

    ^^ What he says - optics on these are stunning, the BDC ret has all the aimpoints you'll need. Can't praise mine highly enough.

    You'll have to re-parallax for air rifle ranges but that's a doddle, after that you're cooking with gas.

    Hi Egg, could please expand on what do you mean by re-parallax for air rifle ranges?

    It will have been setup for real rifles so 'focused' at 100 yard,you need to bring it down to air gun ranges,closer to 30 or 40 yards.

    I would advise that, as I bought one reading the rave reviews and couldn't get on with it at all. But the efr version I liked.

    Thanks, I'm assuming that there isn't an adjustable objective in this case, which sounds like the advice I had from a Hawke tech to remove the locking ring from the objective end, and twist the lens with the aide of something like a ruler slotted in those two indentations on the lens housing.
