  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.

Smk Pr900w Vs Smk Cp2 Victory

    Hey guys,

    Looking at buying an air rifle that i can share with my girlfriend. She likes to shoot but the action on my HW97k is too heavy for her. My top 2 options are the smk pr900w and the smk cp2 victory. It's going to be used mostly for target work but the option to do a little ratting wouldn't go a miss. Anyone have any experience with either rifle? Or maybe both?
    Cheers in advance

    Cant fault the PR900w.

    Accurate, lightweight and pretty solid.

    Was my 1st rifle, which I have traded up from but still miss! Lol

    You'll get about 35 full power shots from a fill, and just keep an eye that everything is kept tightened up and it will be great.

    Haven't tried the CP2, but they also look quite good, but I think the 900 has better accuracy over distance. :)

    900's are full power whereas the CP2's in rifle form tend to deliver around 7-8ft-lbs. The CP2 is marginally lighter but the PR's are pretty feather light anyways.

    Both will put pellet on pellet but the PR will do it further. The main advantage with the CP2 is that if you don't have a bottle/pump you'll find Co2 far easier to get along with and you'll also get 2x mags with the CP2. It can also be turned from a rifle to a pistol but most mainly leave them in rifle form. :thumb:

    That's the other problem i had, i don't have any tanks/pumps to charge a pcp so there's that, but i can get the pr900w for less than a cp2 so the money i save there can go towards one. Long term i think the pump/bottle would pay for itself in the money I'd save on Co2

    That's true and the PR's take very little pumping to get them fully filled. You can get pumps with moisture packs on the bay for around £50 and to their credit they aren't bad at all. Just be ready to pump them a few times per range session as the little PR900's even in .22 only give you around 50 shots per fill.

    Both are great little guns and the newer PR's also come with silencers as standard so they're nice and quiet too. Plus if you're into modding rifles you'll have tons of fun with both of them.

    if you fitted the pp800 with the cp2 barrel and stock you'd have a pcp cp2 i reckon

    Good point wonder if you can buy the barrel and stock as part would be easier than putting a cylinder on a cp2 you reckon

    Andys Airgun review recently done this and hinted at an upcoming official pcp cp2

    OP, I would go with the pr900w, easier to resell

    Ped is correct. The PP800 would/should fit a CP2 stock as the layout is the same.


    Never shot the PR but I would tend to go with that if I only wanted a rifle. As stated the PR being full power. The beauty of the CP2 is both rifle and pistol with less power (out of the box).
    Either one can be easily fettled.

    My CP2 is accurate out to 25m but then loses accuracy, mines been chrono'd at around 7.5ft/lbs (in rifle format!) great little guns, mine also gets about 40 shots from a co2 cartridge.
    Never used a 900 so can't help you there mate.... :)

    I've got a PR900W in .22 and am really pleased with it - as others have said they are very light for a PCP but be prepared for a little fettling out of the box. Mine had to go back under warranty pretty much straight after picking it up because it would not hold pressure but since being returned (very quickly by SMK) I've not had any problems - and it has held pressure for weeks between shooting it without issue.

    The fit and finish is good, the action slick (with the right pellet) and the trigger more than acceptable for a rifle at this price point but with a little creep. The only additions I've made to mine are to manufacture a cover for the end of the air reservoir / fill probe hole and a second barrel band - which didn't affect POI over 30 yds at all.

    Mine is running just over 11 Ft/Lbs out of the box, and once I thoroughly cleaned the barrel grouping at 30 Yds is good - if I do my bit sub half inch with AA Diabolo Fields. I've found the action to be quite pellet fussy though, and anything other than a smooth domed pellet can be difficult to chamber with either the magazine or single shot tray.

    Some owners of the earlier models have reported poor muzzle / breech crowning which affected accuracy / consistency but later ones seem less affected - and it hasn't been an issue with mine. Early and later models can be ID'ed by looking at the rifle pressure gauge stock in-letting - on later models the action can be lifted from the stock without first removing the pressure gauge.

    I run mine with a pump and the trick is to top up little and often - which is good and bad! I previously had an AA S410 and the temptation was to run the reservoir down to min and have a mammoth pumping session (oh er!) to top it up again. With the PR900W fewer shots per fill, but shorter pumping sessions although more often - swings and roundabouts.

    Don't get me wrong this is no AA S410 killer, but it is a very capable rifle, and represents excellent value for money IMHO.
