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 have an x20 supressor and have found it to be good value for money, I have the 22 and use aa diabolo fields its very accurate but the trigger is not the best.

    Cheers Dave

    I use webley accupell, found h&n and bisley are too tight in the barrel.

    I also have had a new trigger and a spring kit fitted.

    Save your money, use Crosman Premiers not Accupells, same pellet, just cheaper as you are buying with the makers name on it not Webleys!

    Get yourself down to John Knibbs in Shustoke and get one brand new with a decent enough 3-9x40 scope for £135. Go for .22 as the .177 has a much greater recoil and get the trigger sorted as well to make it a bit easier. I put exacts through mine with very tight grouping for a springer out to 30yrds

    Great starter rifle matey, I loved mine and it was pretty lethal once you get used to how it shoots. The only thing I would say is that the suppressor does make it quieter than without it, but not as quiet as you might think i.e. like a dedicated silencer

    And the other thing to note is that the .22 is a lot quieter than the .177.

    Hope this helps ;)

    Hi John.
    good choice for a well priced gun.
    I have had a .22 version for just about a year now, and recently bought another for my nephew.
    pellets wise, RWS Superdomes seem to work very well for the price.
    Try to use ones with a good reliable 'headsize' (dont buy too cheap!)

    Watch what scope you get/fit, it can make the gun seem quite 'heavy'.
    i have a 50mm AO scope, but prefer a 40mm version (perhaps i'm weedy?)
    Lastly.
    the stock trigger is a pile of poo.
    do yourself a favour, and get a Charlie Da Tuna upgrade from the USA.
    10 minutes to fit, $30ish (dollars)
    WHAT a difference!!!!
    enjoy!!

    Or go for the welsh Willy trigger, same as the Charlie da tuna trigger but comes from the UK.

    Or you could just buy one from woodfield gcp with the trigger and tuning kit already fitted :D

    I would say the same as a few on here the original trigger is useless i got one from welsh willy and it made a great difference im also sending it down to get it tuned as mine is only putting out 9. Odds lbs and isnt working as good as it could so i suggest u buy one out of woodfield gcp and dont make same mistake i did. On another note tho before mine went on the brink i was using rws superdomes and was getting pellet on pellet groupings at 30 yds andalso got some good killsat 40 45 yds i cant fault these guns at all hence why im getting mine fixed rather than buy a tx or hw.

    I bought a Stoeger X20 .177 off the forums for £100 with an ok scope, the advice on the thread is very consistent with the trust. The .177 is quite heavy - in comparison to my mates BSA Lightening - the 2 stage trigger isn't great and the recoil is effecting my accuracy atm. But, I'm happy with it in terms of price and power. I'd keep your eyes on the forums for a bargain though, my mate got his BSA for £160 and it's very tidy.

    I got a 177 X20 Suppressor and have been shooting it for a while.

    Tried lots of pellets and have found a few that it seems to like.
    RWS Superdomes seem the most consistant. Good grouping at shorter ranges < 30 yards.
    Daystate Rangemaster Li seem to shoot pretty nice with my X20. Better for me at longer ranges > 30yards.
    Airarms Diabolo field were ok too.

    Agree with most on here that the trigger is iffy. I will be swapping mine for a Welsh Willy soon.

    Watch the break barrel too. The weight of the suppressor makes the break quite light so if you drop the gun in your hand or rest too heavy, your barrel breaks.
    Not a big deal just means you have to treat her gently.

    That's exactly what I found with mine. Superdomes for 30 yards are brilliant. And the Li's perform better further out.

    As I mostly shoot at 30 yrds I save the money and use the domes. But there's nothing to choose between them other than the price for what I use them for.

    I just wish my TX liked superdomes as much, it would save me a fortune. Especially as it a .22 :D

    Hello!
    sorry for the slow response, been away!
    the Charlie da Tuna trigger is called the GRt3.
    and it is NOT the same as Welsh Willys.
    my X20 S has had both, the Charlie trigger is the one it still has.
    Don't worry, you won't be sorry with Charlie's trigger, I wasn't!!!
    pm me if you need anymore info.
    rgds.
