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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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’m picking up another LightStream 4.5-14x44 scope this evening

    1" tube and its 375mm long without the sunshade

    I’ve got one on my Ripley AR5s and the clarity and brightness of the lens is just outstanding for the price. You don’t see them frequently for sale so had to get first dibs :D

    The lenses are fully coated Japanese glass with an etched reticule and of course FFP and I’m going to sit it on my Steyr Hunting 5a which currently has an Optisan Viper on it at the moment. The comparison between the two is poles apart. Whilst I really like the Viper and it’s a good scope for air rifle use the quality of the glass on the LightStream is just so much better. It’s as though someone has ‘turned the lights on’.....that’s the best way of describing it.

    Anyways ill update the post later and get some pics up later this evening....

    Cracking scopes, I have an original weaver tactical that they were based on. It'll stay in its box while the hunt for a rifle worthy of it continues.

    cheers Rob....had it out today to zero in and it was just so good.

    I don’t shoot much beyond 35-40 yards but the grouping on rapid fire is just amazing, it groups as well if not better as my other pcps that require cocking inbetween shots. The new glass has helped illuminate the target too....;)

    @Robgriff1 ....A friend has just acquired a laminate crown Rob in 177, 8 months old, he’s not that impressed at all with its grouping and has tried everything from pellets, barrel cleaning, scopes you name it. I think I know what’s gonna happen to it...:rolleyes:

    I had a blue lam one almost as they came out new FAA2A122-180E-43F4-B633-B8DF025CDF5C.jpeg
    I had it about 6 weeks before I let it go, mine grouped really well and the shot capacity was hu.............:bored: such a boring gun imo, in hindsight I should’ve got the Steyr and saved it for hunting, the rabbits would’ve burst out laughing at me with that stupid fx blue thing

    Jsb 5.52 jumbo’s were marginally better than the RS and the aadfs they were all 5.52’s
    I was putting 18 pellets on a 1 and half inch spinner at 70yds and hitting coke cans at 100yds, the mtc viper pro was perfect for this gun being able to mark your own range marker on the top turret, I had more fun zeroing it and setting that scope up for all ranges
