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.

  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 am sending my R10 into XTX for a tune up at some point but should I get my barrel shortened at the same time?

    Yes on aesthetics.

    But is it shrouded or VC?

    Dear gawd, some of those stubby R10s have me weak at the knees...

    Never understood why they made the R10 that long in the first place... Shrouded and carbined, looks a lot better... Says the guy who just boxed up his xtx carbines r10 as it's sold earlier this evening...

    In a word yes. It makes for a better handling and better looking gun. Have a look at my thread in the gun gallery. I have a 12" R10 with the huub shroud. Very happy with it now.

    i would - if anything, it will save money and time if its done at the same time (also, it will have to be re-tuned and set up if its done later)

    if your r10 is shrouded just have that shortened that way the rifle is shorter and you haven't altered the shot count as I believe that's what happens when you have a shorter barrel. or you could just have it tuned and buy a hugget shroud or a huub shroud that Darrin sells at xtx, the hugget is much shorter than the standard shroud not sure about the huub one but if you give xtx a ring Darrin will let you know.

    Fyi- I had a tuned 9" barrelled r-10, the barrel shortening was my biggest regret, made it so much noisier, 12" is what I'd reduce it to max, you'll have to have the gun reset when you shorten the barrel otherwise you'll be low on power.

    Choking: Does your gun have it? In which case you'll be removing some or all of it and losing its benefit. Can anyone shed light on how much of the final bit at the muzzle end is usually choked?
