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.

    You want to move the blade of the rear-sight to the LEFT of its current position. If it has a round adjuster, you need to screw this ANTICLOCKWISE it the adjuster is on the RIGHT of the sight or CLOCKWISE if it is on the left of the sight.

    Clockwise up, anti-clockwise down, holding the gun as if to shoot. I think.

    I can't comment on the markings but generally;

    Shooting high - Screw adjust CLOCKWISE to lower the rear-sight
    Shooting low - Screw adjuster ANTI-CLOCKWISE to raise the rear-sight

    The way to adjust the rear sight is to move the sight in the direction you want the point of impact to move, as Dunkman has said for elevation.
    Some rifles you adjust the front sight and that works in the opposite way to the rear sight. It might make it easier to understand if you sketch it out on a bit of paper remembering that you are trying to line the sights up with the pellet hole from the shot you just fired.
    If you want to see what happens when you adjust the sight you can shoot a 3/5 shot group and then move either the elevation or windage half a turn in either direction and shoot another group. This way you should see which direction it moves the poi and by how much. Only adjust one screw at a time, don't try and do it all at once and you should find it quite an easy job.

    In my opinion the nicest iron sights to use are the ones with an aperture rear as that makes it very easy to line them up with your target, well worth adding if you can find one to fit your rifle.
