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.

    Do you have a particular preference for any of the Rapid incarnations @bucketboy - what in your opinion is the "best" of the original factory guns before any customisation/tinkering ?

    Basically they are all the same, I have a fondness for the old mk1 but the mfr is considered to be the best all rounder.

    So are the MK1 & MK2 identical in all ways apart from the reg?

    Almost, later models are the same but with different stocks, also a slight differences in the valve ports size

    Older mk1 blocks are different but work in the same way, and there have been a few different incarnations of trigger type.

    Here’s my usual hunting gun currently fitted with a nite site viper. It’s an old beat up S410. The front of the stock has been flattened and a hole drilled for a bipod that I no longer use. There’s lots of other marks on it. I some times think about stripping the stock and refinishing it but I’m not going to I like it just the way it is. All I’ve ever done to it in the 14 years or so I’ve had it is a reseal due to a slow air leak last year.
    I have once taken my walnut stocked TX out over the farm but I would be gutted if I marked it so it’s now used only for target work.

    The only damage is a hole in the underside of the fore-stock where the previous owner fitted a sling stud for a bipod, other than that it's very tidy for a 19yr old (2001 vintage) rifle... :thumb:

    Here's my old pre anti tamper s400. Nothing fancy about the oiled stock or 3-9x40 ao scope but it's thumbhole stock fits me like a glove and certainly does the business as required. It homes my nv mounts, rubber silencer band for tucking camo netting behind, scope sunshade and adjustable butt pad. It has certainly been through the brambles and nettles with me. I look after it but it's a tool for a job...:thumb:

    I do look after them. They have been out in all sorts of weather etc, and on countless forays with me - I just look after them in between hunting sessions. :thumb:
