  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.

SMK19 scopes?

    Hi

    This is my first post on this forum, :)

    as i have literally just bought my air rifle (SMK 19 .22) today, and i couldn't be happier with it. However as it gets dark quickly i havn't been able to fully zero the sights.

    I am planning on next buying a scope for the rifle.. and was just wondering what you guys felt was the best scope on the market that would fit an SMK 19,

    and also does anyone know of any places in Leicestershire where i could also get a scope zeroed. According to my mum's boyfriend it requires lazers?!:p

    I got a tin of RWS Superdome with the rifle and they seem pretty good.. but i might go for more expensive pellets when i get my scope and have it all zeroed.

    Thankyou

    Joe

    You zero your scope with your fingers not a laser. :D
    Just get any scope that is spring gun rated, mount it then shoot and adjust the scope until the pellets are hitting whatever your cross hair is aimed at.

    Welcome to the mad house.

    :p:up:lol cheers mate

    im a bit of a green horn with all this lol hence the tag thing under my name...

    i read a review for some BSA scopes and the AR 27-32 (?) looks pretty good... if thats spring loaded rated would anyone be able to recomend it, or do you have any other reccomendations?

    theres only so far i can zero the sights without a scope, because the tremors of my body affect the shot, so i'm looking forward to buying my scope on pay day:cool:

    Zero'ing is done by hand.

    Basically set up target at the distance you want to zero.

    With the gun nice and steady (rest it on something) , fire a group (4 or 5) of shots at the centre. The reason for the group is to make sure that the pellets are hitting the target based on the aim point rather than inconsistent beginner shooting (like mine!!!). If you have the pellets pretty well grouped then adjust one of turrets on the scope (windage or elevation) and repeat with another group. You should now be closer to the target.

    Repeat the process until you are hitting the centre line for that turret.

    Then move onto the next turret and repeat until the pellets are hitting where you are aiming.

    Cheers,

    Nigel

    Cheers lads
    :)

    i pretty much no the sights now and were to aim for what i want to hit at short range but im too broke to get a scope lol

    but i did shoot the bottom off a wine bottle earlier... (it was empty don't worry)

    and me and my brother played a little game to pass the time... we set milk bottles up full of water (not milk?!) in the garden and shot them... they were all presidents to shoot the hardest to hit being GWB... well thats immaturity for you :p

    think i might get me a bi-pod too... any one here use them?

    I wouldn't go for a really expensive scope, seeing as you just got an SMK rifle ;)

    Something around the £40 will do fine I think, look at the AGS range.

    Does this mean I've just gone and bought a pup as well ? I was told it was a low cost quality gun. (Yes I know the two don't go together) but who do you trust.

    peter if your a beginer to air rifles the smk will be a ok gun for a bit plinking in the garden, but im sure that after a while you will get clued up
    about airguns and will want to move on from the smk and buy yourself a quality airgun which you must have if you intend to use it to dispatch live vermin.

    whoever told you that the words smk and quality went together was taking the p44s, but its like every hobby you take up you learn as you go along.

    Don't worry about your SMK, it's still fine for beginners.

    When you need an upgrade though don't forget to look at BSA, Air Arms or Weihrauch.

    If you want more info on any guns you're interested in then let us know ;)

    Happy shooting to you!

    For the scope look on e-bay, you'll get something half decent, dead cheap. I paid £27 for a tasco 3-9 x 40 IR last year from China. the scope cost £9:):), the postage £18:eek::eek: - still a bargain though and working fine to this day.
