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.

    Thank you.

    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.

  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.

    hi folks, looking for a PCP pistol for my 10 year old,hes became quite a good shot in a short time using the Rohm and is very safety concious, i think its time to get him his own,we both like the above but is the SA worth the extra £40 and he loves the Rohm so were thinking maybe the trainer model could be considered

    my concern with the Rohm is servicing and parts etc as im finding it hard to get mine serviced etc

    now to the PP700 versions, ive read lots of good reports on them and i should imagine servicing and parts etc wont be a issue.

    Can't comment on the Rhom I'm afraid but would plump for the SA rather than W.
    SA has rails and sights so can use both and has a smaller grip, has shrouded barrel although a mod is a nice addition. They shoot nicely and can be trimmed with shoulder stock, bipod, scope etc etc if that floats your boat. Dunno what parts you would need to replace but all the O rings will be metric and fairly easily available. You should actually get a few spare with the gun if buying new.

    The W doesn’t have sights so if you’re going target pistols that’s ruled out.

    The SA sights are not fully adjustable either.

    Depending where you shoot a silencer is definitely needed

    If it was me, I would get an Hw40 but I appreciate this may be hard for him to cock....

    The W has a short 11mm dovetail on the top of the action to fit an optic (red dot or other).
    The SA has a full length 11mm Dovetail AND open sights. Only caveat is , the open sights are adjustable for windage only, not elevation.

    Can't comment on the Rohm sorry.
