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.

    I managed to do a shot count on the .177 Pro X scout earlier today and from 200 bar down to 80 bar on the guage got 140 shots. Probably a few more in there to be honest but heard that the regs are set at 85bar. I know a few on here have them and was curious as to the shot counts your getting.

    Cheers, John :)

    Yes, I thought I'd seen 200 shots mentioned. Is yours a UK gun. Giles was saying 160 for the .22 in his video review so thought 140 for the .177 about right. I'm currently using JSB 8.4 grain.

    Mine is from Steyr UK as well :confused: Will have to do a little research. The only thing I have found so far that might affect performance is the transfer port, but not going to fiddle given it's 2 year warranty. 140 is still good given the size of the tube.

    Cheers, John :)

    Yes. Haven’t messed around with mine at all (well apart from making a new stock for it);)

    It’s a Steyr;)

    Can get a full mag inside a 5p piece at 35yds firing as fast as I can (about 4 seconds)

    Haven’t been able to shoot it slowly yet:(

    Yes Warren is right. Pretty much bang on 200 shots from a full fill before I notice a gradual lowering of POI.
    I think the gauge under reads a bit particularly at the lower end so the needle gets down past the 80 marker towards the 60 before POI starts to fall off. ;)

    Hi, I got 165 from my .22 until it dropped off the reg, must admit I was a bit dubious at putting this much money into air rifle but it's awesome fun and bloomin accurate as well, was taking the heads of matches at 35 yards today with ease shot after shot..

    Edit.. Just realised that this is my first post (been lurking in the shadows for a while), so hello everybody:)

    140 sounds ballpark correct for the shorter version; the long one gives around 180 shots in .177 and I think the short cylinder is ballpark 25% lower of volume.

    Ironically my properly-setup LG110 (same shorter cylinder IIRC) only gives me around 130 shots per charge; just shows how much air's lost through striker bounce if yours can give more shots while using some air to cycle the action!

    I'm fairly certain that I'm getting way more than 140 on a short tube in .177. As Warren says we've both counted and it's a kick in the ar5e off 200 before POI drops gradually and vertically.
