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.

    ahh i see you have the continuous groove not the seperates
    i checked my grooves with a measure today come in at 15mm
    could you tell me if sportsmatch 15mm tikka cz to 11mm dovetail adaptors would be of use to me or would i be better just getting mounts
    i take they were 11mm mounts that you have used but they open wide enough for 15mm grooves

    if you use the 15mm to 11mm mounts you will need a set of low mounts as they add about 10mm to the hight

    Called knibbs the other day told them about my predicament and they said they had the correct one piece mounts and assured me it's what they fit on all meteors and will definitely fit. They arrived today and are longer than the dovetails so no way in the world will they fit. That's 30 odd quid ive wasted on scope mounts this week not very happy at all along with the useless rifle bag that I bought that was recommended on the forum thats another £12 just shows you that it's best to go into a gun shop and try before you buy looks like this meteor is going to have an early retirement.

    Don't give up, you have done excellent so far. Once you get the mounts sorted you have a rifle that would last you a lifetime mate :thumbup:

    Thing is how much money can I throw at it? Knibbs are knobbs he assured me they would fit I could send them back and ask for a refund but I can't be bothered with all the hassle. He suggested two piece mounts but every meteor I have seen has scope creep due to the shallow scope rail.

    They're actually alright in there to be fair, they'd give you your money back or at least swap them for something else with no questions asked. To be honest any spring powered rifle may occassionally get scope creep due to the recoil but I'd have a go with the two piece ones like I have. They do the job well on mine, so I can't see why they wouldn't on yours.

    On my mk2 I have 2 piece on mine and have had no problems with scopes creep. Send them back and swap them,I know it's a pain in the arse, but surely worth a try :)

    If your Mk 2 is anything like the mk1 the scope grooves are much deeper in fact on the mk1 it cuts through the steel! I may take a drive over to knibbs as they are not a million miles away and get them to change them for ones that fit.

    That is interesting as on both my mk 2's the dovetails go right through the steel they also both measure 15mm yet i know my mk5 only measures 11mm and the grooves dont go all the way through
