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.

  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.

Good news Steyr LP10 + Burris Fastfire 3

    I recently purchased the Burris Fastfire 3 to go on my LP10. I absolutely love this combination, the target acquisition is so speedy and the brightness on the red dot can be adjusted to eliminate flare. This sight is seriously TINY, measuring just 46x25.4x23.7mm. It comes with a picatinny mount (great for all you Alecto owners) and a sunshade/rain cover (even though the sight itself is fully waterproof), a battery, a screwdriver and a 1 year warranty. It has a 3MOA dot and 1MOA adjustments for windage and elevation. I recently started doing Pistol HFT comps and am yet to take this combo around our course but I know that I'll have a much better chance since purchasing this red dot.

    Here are some pics of the hardware along with some pellet test groups shot today at 15mtrs off a bench bag:

    I had a red dot on my HW40 and get similar groups as you,just takes a bit of getting used to but they are incredibly quick to aim.

    Cheers Gasman, she's only a few weeks old and am loving her so far.

    I was torn between the Steyr and the LP400, was honestly one of my toughest decisions. Decided on the LP10 for the balance and ability to attach a scope/dot sight. The LP400 is so new, there's not much after market stuff available for it, but if your just buying to shoot 10m then it's a fantastic bit of kit. Enjoy!

    Hi thanks for posting, I really like that setup and it obviously works well. What type of mounts are you using on the barrel shroud and where did you get them from? I'm using my LP10 for normal 10m comps and have used a Tau 7 with BSA pistol scope for bench rest comps. I'd be interested in using my LP10 with a setup like yours to see how it compares with the Tau.

    Cheers,

    Mick

    Tidy looking pistol, wish I had the patience in order to learn how to hold and shoot with one of these. Looks like a real skill to me. Very nice. KB1

    Hi Mick,

    its a genuine Steyr picatinny mount, purchased from Harry & Sue Preston. They had them in stock a couple of weeks ago, so might still have one.

    Cheers Kermitboy,

    no no skill required at all once you get the red dot on there. Trust me, I have no skill whatsoever! Lots of fun to be had with this type of setup.
