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.

    Well I've gone crazy and got a .25 pcp :D

    Bsa Scorpion SE .25 with custom Blodnob shroud which is top class.

    I've been having a play round with which scope to use, first up was a Falcon 4-14x44 ffp which is a class scope but very heavy and I felt upset the weight/balance of the rifle

    So it was removed and out came a JSR 4-16x44 (far cheaper scope but well worth a look at for the money), much lighter and once mounted I felt hmmm this is the scope for this set up and light enough for my lad to use too

    I can't wait to get stuck into pellet testing, read h&n ftt are the one to use but got plenty of testers and my . .25 is massive :D

    Nice one Simon, your right about the scope it looked top heavy with the Falcon onboard, the JSR just looks right.

    Only a few guns make the Falcon kind of feel right it doesn't suit a light rifle, tried it on my Regal once but it just felt like it was balancing in a tight rope and could topple over.

    Anyway enjoy it mate make no doubt about it they do make some big holes in stuff, I used to use .25 pest control through my BSA barrels and they would literally smash cans to pieces, and a few rats:up:

    Thanks guys, I can't wait to get out shooting this thing :D

    Elliot your right about the falcon, very nice scope but it has to fit the rifle. Like your hw100 or a rapid I feel but it's been put away for the time being. I've seen this gun in action before I got it, I've even shot it too and it's a beast it was bunnyblatters (I was at his the other day and ended up getting it off him, cheers matey :up:)

    Thanks Gordon and yes the shroud is great, I do have a silencer for the scorpion in .25 but the shroud looks cooler and also it just about fits my rapid barrel when sliding it on but the rapid is .20 so works best on the scorpion :D

    I bet the JSR is just as good optics anyway Simon because I bought one from Dylan on here and couldn't believe how good it was, and he basically gave it me for what it cost.


    It would make a nice ratting rig, do you have any decent ratting mate?

    Your right about the JSR scope, they are very good value for money. I think the Falcon is better for my eyes but not £200 worth of better if you know what I mean.

    Yes the se .25 would make a belter of a rat gun, just need a rat permission now :D
