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.

  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.

    Your getting quite a collection there Barcelona mate, very nice.

    Here's the fruits of my latest venture - the Bisley adjustable butt pad. It came out rather well and despite me wanting to polish it to a shiny finish i stopped myself and left it a similar lustre as the trigger.

    Nah I'm going to give the HW90 a miss. I think I've found my perfect rifle. It's the HW98.. I can't tell you how flippin' accurate it is. I actually prefer it to anything else I have. Standing shots are a joy. Its reduced muzzle flip and no spring twang makes it feel as if it's been tuned.
    I LOVE this rifle.. You must get to shoot one soon. ALL of you!

    That's a short short barrel on the '80. Never seen one that short. How does it effect it if any?

    Also Very nice '77. I'm looking to add one to the collection.

    yes the barrel on the 80 is very short but it has no ill effects, deadly accurate and extremely pointable and still very well balanced.

    I'd like to know what springs Sandwell Field Sports uses in their tunes as I have an '80 tuned by them and it is very smooth to shoot.

    I asked Tony at sfs the very same question when I had my lightening tuned,he never said a name but he said their not v Mach or venom or any other big name,he told me a story that when they first started using this supplier that he put one into an old springer he had lying about and cocked it and locked it away in a cupboard to see what the fatigue would be on it,it was only supposed to be for a few days but he forgot about it completely and only stumbled back across it 6 months later,he still tested it and it had lost no power at all,now I'd say that's pretty impressive.
