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.

    'Behaviour

    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.

    I have a nitesite viper, but struggle to to get reticle in sharp focus. It's the older style camera unit without external focus wheel.
    My question are... Do I
    1. Buy the rtec camera module for around £180.00. (sell or donate old one)
    2. Buy a pard 007. (which means I'll have nv spare for a second rifle which I'm toying with gettin)
    3 buy new rifle and pard 008, to he'll with the expense put it all on finance and hope fire the best.... (this is probably not a serious option, the Mrs will have my guts for garters)

    What would you lot do?

    Thanks in advance

    The dreaded garage bill . Hopefully it's not too bad and I won't be buying your pard. But if you have to sell, and I'm not sorted let me know.

    @Redcap 114, fingers crossed big boy.
    The Mrs was driving around with iffy tracking for months I told her it would wreck her tyres, anyway she finally went to get it sorted.. 3 new tyres and tracking, should have been 320 quid, bloke In Garage was having a bad day said " going through a messy divorce, #£&@ the b&£@h you can have it for 160"
    Gave the man my card and got out quick before he changed his mind.

    Hi I think r tech use same screen and cam If this is case it won't help. The pard 007/008 use a much higher definition can and screen/viewer
    Just to clarify.I am not aware of any 3.5 inch screen with a definition any where near the pards unless you go up market to o led which is more expensive than the complete ns unit
    Definitely just buying r tec cam unit won't help as you are looking at low Def screen
    Cheapest option is scope with thicker wires a hawk is a good place to start
    Preferred option is one of the pards for me because of all the tech Benits. as important the weight savnig the ns 500/600 grms plus bat plus extra torch if needed. The pards around 400 all up hope this helps

    I am using a hawke scope, lower end...
    Yeah the weight is an issue especially when put on the top a slightly over weight rifle....
    I've 99% nade up my mind... A pard it is, although to keep cost down have considered a new scope.

    Your help is appreciated....

    Where are you from? Might be worth seeing if anyone local to you has a pard that you could have a look at before buying.
    I use mine with a 5-15x50 panorama on a bsa ultra and it's great, I've used it with the 3-9x40 panorama as well. They seem to be better with the lower end scopes - something to do with the coatings on the lenses on high end stuff means that they don't work as well with the pard 007
