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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  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 have a 1993 'SR that is a bit different to the stock 'SR mechanically.

    For example mine has a re engineered cocking bar that is a straight section of steel rather than the factory curved bar that can be seen and extends the cocking stroke which is seen by some as quite awkward.

    Also I have a Ken Turner trigger block with flat set blade adjusted for a very delicate let off.

    I chose a walnut after market sporter stock back then because I didn't like the factory stock design.

    Yes they are marginally heavier than a stock TX but the excellent balance cancels out a lot of it, and in the right hands a .177 'SR will record phenomenally tight groups at 50 metres. I know, as witnessed on one occasion.

    Mine in all honesty is a sleeper, still looking as good as it was when I first opened the card board box at the spring piston rifle event all those years ago.















    Not that RW were to do such a dastardly deed but should I hear such a rumour, I will sneak in his gaff in the middle of the night and araldite all of his pellet tins lids closed:D

    The only thing it did that the 99s doesn't was to give me a bad back. It truly is a pig to cock and that tiny loading port - in fact the whole loading process - is a PITA. To be honest, it was a relief to hand it back to its rightful owner after the session. A beautifully made rifle, a bit of a white elephant though. The 99s and 30s will do everything that I require from an air rifle...

    Another fine example, you dont need to spend loads of money. For some, a cheaper gun will do the same job as a more expensive one.

    Know that feeling, is that also the reason you found a 'more substantial' tree to lean it against... :D:up:

    I have a TX200 and a 99s and love them both but yes, there are things a TX will do that the 99 won't. It builds muscle for a start:) Joking aside though it is a bit more accurate and I can manage greater distance when hunting. I find it better for shooting up into trees. I do prefer it for static hunting and the 99 for rambling around with, however with a sling on it is tolerable for the latter. Mine doesn't have that lovely walnut handle, being plain old beech but still, what a gun! I'll never part with it even when I'm too old and feeble to lift it.

    Judging by this I must be firmly in the 'old and feeble' category now then... :(
