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.

    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.'

  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.

Starlight Arrow - Experiences or Opinions Please

    Hi there, I've decided I don't want a dedicated night scope as I only have one rifle and when I go out it's for shooting in the afternoon into the night.


    I've see the Starlight Arrow which seems to be exactly the kind of thing I want. I've been trawling the net looking for reviews and comments and it's a little sparse. It's a lot of money to spend without the benefit of some good reviews as I won't be able to try it before I buy.


    I would really appreciate it if anyone here has experiences or opinions on it or any alternative suggestion.




    Many thanks,




    Jim

    hello, from what i see its a small day scope n/v add on then you need a I/R torch, you need a parallax day scope, basic model about £400 plus cost for i/r , so depending what your shooting fac or air rifle? should be ok to 100mtrs, you could make a home made DIY n/v add on with a screen?, terry 101 on here has put a good thread recently, parts/ cost/how to put together, i just fitted a pulsar challenger but only good for 25/35 mtrs max. you could look a the photon day/night n/v scope, £400 and this can be made better by a few diy extras. maybe a forum member has better info. where in west berks are you?

    hello, if you look at the photon and want this for day time use, i have put a plastic cap on the front with a 25mm hole. this makes a better clarity and can be used in daylight with a piece of red plastic sheet cut to go over hole and same as the one in the photon kit, i think terry 101 will give details of red sheet and how light/dark needs to be.

    I gave this some thought myself but was put off that it sits on the rear of the scope which I can't imagine will be comfortable in use. I might be wrong but this was why I didn't buy one. I got the photon instead. I'd be interested to hear how others rate it. The company Arrow are very experienced with NV and make good products.

    hello, i just looked its a hawke HD 3x9x40, with a cree 501b I/R led, blacked reflector and aspheric lens. its only for ratting to 25mtrs. i thought to get a better I/R but i have lots of recharge CR123a batts and 2 chargers. i have just done another thing to the cree to make the beam smaller and longer, i taped a tube to the front of torch about 30/35mm long and it works indoors but yet to try out side in complete darkness.

    Is scope ao?, side focus is recommended for add ons. The laser i use is a n800 I think, they use same batteries as pulsar very good.

    This is laser.

    hello, yes i was offered that with the s/h challenger but i wanted to try my cree I/R, the challenger works fine with that scope, i can see clear 100mtrs without I/R, i had to have the scope lowest mag and the challenger set right and both diopters right to eye sight its just needs a bit extra I/R beam so am hoping my idea works. i leave this set up permanant on the .22 vermy. i also found a slight movement with the challenger on the scope as the mount had been fixed but i sorted with strong string through top mounts, it looks heath robinson but works same for the tube idea.
