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.

  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.

    Just swapped my scopes around so I have my best one on the newest gun and oldest on the 95.

    Now... the M16 is fine.

    The S400 is almost maxed out on windage

    The 95 isnt even vaguely close at max elevation and windage. In fact it's awful.

    I have re-centred to scope (using the count clicks method) and cant even hit an a3 sheet at 10yds.

    Any advice welcome!

    I'm not (quite) that daft lol

    Took them straight off one gun onto the other, should have been fine (I think) on the mounts.

    Does the position (I.e. forward/back on the rail) make significant difference?

    You can get an adjustable mount from Ant Supplies that adds lots of windage and elevation adjustments. I had to use one to set my Wildcat up for 10m shooting because I could'nt get enough elevation. Very well priced and very effective.

    Mounts?

    Might be worth changing the mounts around?

    Just bring the target sheets in close enough to hit paper. Once you are on paper adjust at say 10 yards until your are hitting a dot and then move them out gradually adjusting the scope as you go.

    Started with that mate.

    That's how I know scope is maxed out with elevation and windage - still hitting 6" low and right at about 10 feet :-(

    New mounts tomorrow.

    Do you have an arrest or pin in the mounts?

    Undoubtedly cheap mounts that look great but are actually asymmetric. :confused:

    There is one. Just sticking out enough to make it lock (I think!,) if it's out too much will that affect it?

    That is quite possibly the issue.

    Might go to rfd for some decent ones.

    I was wondering that... depends how deep the dovetails are, could it be pushing the rear up?!

    BKL a good place to start....

    21777199-6AA5-4876-81B4-3C5CE0383EF4.jpeg to put it into perspective....

    I have just bought a 97k from a fellow forum member. Mounted my Sightron 10x42 in Burris mounts on Weaver (make as well as design) rail adapters and only needed 6clicks down from center to zero. Mounts are all too often the weak link in rifle set ups, skimp here and potentially compromise the whole set up! :thumb:
