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.

    '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.

    I haven't had too many scopes, only about 3 or 4, and I've used a couple of others that belonged to different people.

    From what I've seen, Simmons seem to be good. AGS are quite good, and I like Hawke.

    I've used SMK scopes and I wouldn't rate them :D but that goes without saying.

    i have seen old zeiss and kahles going for reasonable money lately as well as new leupold 1s and 2s..
    i think i need to check peoples gear on ft as i am aperson that gets on with every one and any one..
    our shops are crap..bought a bushnell elite 3200 10x40 rain guard tactical and a bushnell trophy 6-18 and i was not impressed to be honest expesially how good there reviews are..
    putting both up for sale..
    want as much advise as possible before i jump into spending £500+again:rolleyes:.

    I use a swarovski scope on my deer stalking rifle and it cost over a grand and will probably last me a lifetime but wouldn't bother with an scope that expensive on my airguns i'd rather use dedicated airgun scopes by hawke, ags or simmons

    hi

    thanks for reply mate..
    i have intentions on getting fac soon which is another reason i am asking..
    missed the game faire last year and thinks i have to go this year and have a good look..
    i agree with spending loads on a airgun too but the idea was to get a real good scope for my money that will last and i could use on either a rimmy or centre fire in the future as i would like to do some deer and boar maybe in this life;)..
    what do you usually hunt with your hi end gear??
    thanks for posting again, i appreciate it:up:

    Meopta are all but in the Zeiss class but are a fair bit cheaper. You'll need the eyes of an 18 year old to split the difference and if you are 18 with good eyesight you probably wouldn't appreciate the difference anyway.

    I love my Leup mk iv lr/t with illum. TMR ret which was set up om the rapid S but this weekend have switched it to the aw - it is well worth the price and like you I see it as an investment over the long term - if you can get someone to get it in the US for you go for it, you will buy it for considerably less than in the UK, now I wish all my scopes had a TMR ret, I really like how fine the crosshairs are, if you have the funds, go for it, you will not regret it!:up: I will be buying another for definite.

    I have a couple of the 3200 10X40 mildot and a supersniper 10X40 mildot.
    They are both great scopes well made and will last a very long time, with no problems what so ever.
    They are both great hunting scopes that suit me just fine.
    It's up to you and how much you are willing to spend.
    i hope this helps you a little.

    Just remember if you buy an expensive scope that was made with rimfire or fullbore guns in mind don't fi it to a springer or you will be very disapointed
