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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  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.

    The rest for the gun was not very steady and the top is too small and not offset ...you can’t use a full size rest on it and it is hard to get a good hold position as you can’t sit to the side of the rifle ....I sent my one back and made my own

    My table is much better ... adjustable up/down / swivels / folds flat ... I bought a small hydraulic stool on wheels so I can get my shooting position just right ... it does fold flat but I always leave it up by the patio doors so I can use it anytime I want

    I have a similar one from Amazon

    I ordered TWO of the type in your photo and both didn’t turn up because the Seller is a t@@t

    I ordered a slightly different ‘nitehawk’ one from Amazon and glad I did

    Excellent quality and arrived within two days.

    Very strong... it takes my 28 stone easily for hours

    Quite comfy and perfect height for target shooting

    I changed the top on mine simply because I wanted a bigger bench to use my Caldwell Rock bench support.

    Otherwise it suits perfectly

    It’s quite heavy but I keep it slid in the rear footwell of my landrover

    I made a different plywood top for my bench... extended it by 150mm width and length

    Covered in black leatherette vinyl

    Does the job a treat

    The original top was good but it was covered in a soft foam type material that was very comfy but didn’t like my Caldwell

    Be great with a soft bean bag

    You don’t line the bench up at 90 degrees to target, you angle it more like 45 degrees then you’re at the perfect angle for hours of comfy accurate plinking

    The nitehawk bench is ROCK solid on concrete or grass. Doesn’t flex or flop around at all

    When I am fit and new off watching my weight I weigh about 10 stone. I am also about 5 foot 4 inches tall and at 78 getting shorter by the day. In my prime, well I never had a Prime I went straight from Puberty to Old age but I did once attain the giddy height of 5 foot 6 inches. Its all down hill now boy.

    Another thing I did was swap the wing-nut type bolts for the braces to these plastic headed wheel bolts.

    Much easier.

    If you buy one send me a PM and I’ll give you a pair of these wheel bolts cos I had to buy a pack of 10

    That looks good as well, looks like more to think about then by me. Good photos and Amazon comment as I looked at it on there. I’m only 58 years old, lol.

    I’ve had mine a good number of months and still going strong :thumb:

    As said I made a bigger table top but this really isn’t essential

    I use a Caldwell rock rifle rest and needed a bit more room for it
