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.

    Thank you.

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.

    Hi 1S,1K

    Ive just got the the S410 Carbine and its a cracking rifle.

    I have the Hawke Night Eye 3-10x44 scope fitted and dose every thing ya need, it lets plenty of light throe and the illuminated reticle is perfect for hunting at night, altho I have not had the chance to try it yet am sure it wont let me down.
    http://www.deben.com/optics/riflescopes/nite_eye_dot.php

    But at one point i thought the scopes were faulty, i now thing the error was down to me or choosing the wrong pellets, and while I've menchened pellets try AA field (as its been recommended to me) or try AccuPell as I've tried them and found a much better grope.

    Best of luck with the rifle and welcome aboard

    Thanks for the replies chaps,

    I can spend upto £150 on the scope...

    I am collecting my rifle on wednesday and have spoken to the shop about scope choice.They have plenty of scopes in stock so i will try some on the rifle until i find a good combination.Have ordered both Accupels and some Air Arms pellets to see which is best for the gun and me.

    At £150 for a hunting scope you'd do worse than a Bushnell 5-15x40 Legend mildot. If you import one direct from the USA it'll just come in under budget. Buy in the UK and pay £250 for one!

    hi 1 shot welcome to the forum i also shoot with an s410 and have hawke 4-12x40 scope fitted. the only fault i can find with these is when i picked them i didnt think i would be shooting at anything closer than 10 yards and found its minimum magnification 4x is no good at distances less than this you get a blurred image i was supprised when shooting from my jeep how close rats would come to it and got away because of this. so if your thinking of hunting dont forget to consider some of the vermin can be quite close as well as at a distance i should of gone for a 3-10 or 12x magnification. Injoy your new gun you will love it.

    I've got an AGS 3-9 X 50 VIPIR mil-dot with illuminated reticule and I'm very pleased with the overall peformance, the only thing I'd change, knowing what I know now, is I think I'd go for a SWAT scope as changing the parallax on the front ring on mine is awkward.
