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.

    When I received my Sig from SWS a few weeks ago, the adjustable rear sight was fully screwed down, presumably that’s how it leaves the factory. I had to unscrew the elevation screw quit a bit to get the poi anywhere near the point of aim. Again I imagine this is normal. The sight now is spring loaded Upwards and restrained by the adjustment screw. Whilst trying to produce good cards to submit to our “friendly comp” I sometimes (not often) get superb groups, 5 shots about 15 mm ctc. These have never unfortunately been across the 10 ring but always to one side or above. This got me looking at the windage adjustment screw. Whilst looking at this adjustment I became aware that the sight is not exactly locked tight. As I already stated the up and down movement is sprung and constrained by the adjustment screw, but what concerned me is that the sight can be moved left and right by a small amount. It can be pushed to the left where it will stay, or moved to the right where it will also stay. As far as I can see this negates any windage adjustments? Has anyone else come across this sloppy sight?

    Might just be a case of removing the sight and fitting a shim or two to remove any lateral movement. I haven't got a Sig X5 or even had a good look at one, so I cannot say for certain exactly how to solve it but if you can pin point where the slop is you can shim it there. Just a suggestion buddy :)

    You are right @Headhunter. I’ve had a good look at it and it is slop in the hinged front end of the sight. It’s not much but it’s exaggerated as the sight gate is at the far end of the sight. The back piece of the sight with the gate adjusts nicely and seems to slide in a dovetail. It’s just the hinge with the slop that is irritating me. At some time in the future I shall have a proper look at it and see what can be done, with a shim or perhaps pin or roll pin that forms the hinge. I find it is very easy to get hung up On an issue like this, and blame it for poor scores. Most pistols don’t even have any adjustment, and that might be a good thing, after all these are not target pistols.
