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.

    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.

    Bit of a strange one really, I've been messing with my rapid today and instead of using the mag I've been single loading straight into the barrel and I've really enjoyed using it this way, I've not missed loading the mag.

    Anybody else done this or like single shot more than multi shot?

    Not familiar with a multishot; is that for people who miss with their first one?

    When I had my rapid with a scalop block I was single loading it, quick and simple :) but I only did it because with BSA and other multishot rifles you don't have this feature unless you buy a adapter... But if I was to choose one or the other I would take a magazine every time :)

    The HW100 is the only magazine fed rifle(s) I ever had that maintained accuracy throughout all shots of the magazine. All other rifles for me produced poor grouping.

    I do find mine very accurate as you say. Consistency with the HW100 is superb. I just fancied to try for when I wish to plink with it. (I know, it's maybe a little overkill for plinking)!

    The Rowan one is very slick and saves hassle loading a mag I found.

    Careful chaps, you know what happens when you go bigging up the HW100!
    I completely agree though, it's the only rifle that delivers perfect shots from a mag, at least the only one that I've had experience of.

    I bought a single shot adaptor with my HW100 and sold it soon after, it was nowhere near as accurate as the magazines, completely opposite with my Regal.

    I must say personally I don't agree that single shots are more accurate than multis, however to contradict myself slightly I am more accurate with my single shot adaptor on my 100 compared to the mag but this is purely due to me taking my time more, taking my eye off the scope loading setting the shot up again, personally I really enjoy shooting with the single shot mag I find it more relaxing and enjoyable, my s400 is a fantastic to shoot, such a great rifle for the money.

    My only single shot PCP I have to compare accuracy wise is my old Daystate Harrier, and I would say I cannot group that the same as the HW100T or Ultra SE.

    I prefer single shot, although i dont hunt much I do think that on a plinking range/ft course single shot is safer and equally as fast as loading a mag every 10~ shots. When hunting I would think carrying 2 or 3 loaded mags would be far easier.

    Multi for hunting and single for targets.
    Never noticed any difference in accuracy from a mag gun tbh.
    Neither should there be unless something is wrong and damaging the pellets.

    I shall be finger feeding some of those 30grain piledriver pellets into my FAC Rapid to see how they perform. Still trying to find the ideal pellet for it. I really do not like the magazines for the rapids. I will have to take it apart and lower the spring setting.

    I have to agree, my HW100S is really accurate. Hard to beat that magazine mechanism system. I sold the single shot mag as I only hunt with it and the 14 shot mag is just as accurate for me.
