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'm after a compact take down rifle for transport & storage issues. Two have come up as possible choices - Logun S-16S and FX 'verminator' (silly name but appears to be a good product)

    Anyone got any experience/comments on these, or any other rifles that might fit the bill?

    cheers

    Don't Air Arms do a take down? I'd check that out first, bound to cost a few quid mind!

    The spec on the S410 TDR is good except its rated at 40 shots per charge whereas the Logun and the FX are nearer 200. This rather put me off it?

    S410 TDR could be the best of those, FX are good but be careful of the Logun, they're not very reliable, don't be pulled in by the amazing 16 shot system! :D plus I think the Logun is the biggest by a fair bit when it's assembled, don't know if that matters to you but it's a big rifle :confused:

    All the ifs and but's i've read about airarms service etc, i would go for the Verminator.
    Based on a Gladiator, 200 shot's in .22 (at 12fpe) and can be tuned up to 24fpe +, (With license).
    I can vouch for FX quality, but not the price you guys have to pay. **** deban!.:mad: Come to sweden and pick it up yourself, you wont be out of pocket, and you get a trip to the original center parks as well!!!:D

    think of it this way, the longer it takes to shoot off all the shots from the gun, the longer it takes to fill it back up again.

    if you use a divers bottle then you will be in the dive shop quite often
    if you use a stirup pump i'll meet you in the olimpics:D

    take your point about refills - although the cost of the rifle and a stirrup pump could be offset by cancelling my gym membership. However, being a lazy sod at heart, I'd have to admit that there is a dive shop only 5mins from my office...

    I think I'm leaning towards the FX although a trip to Sweden ain't an option just at the moment, sadly - BTAS near Cambridge is about the travel limit! All the reviews that I can find on the interwebbythingy seem to be very complimentary about the verminator and FX in general.

    At the risk of opening a can of worms, any thoughts on a scope to match the rifle? (No I'm not going to ask .177 or .22 :)) Main use would be target/beer cans, maybe a little hunting if my sons are prepared to skin & gut the rabbits they shoot, possibly some Field Target work.

    If you want to hit the can in the first place then go .177, everyone knows that this is the better calibre for targets, cans, and all that stuff, there's no argument for .22 when the main use of an airgun isn't hunting :up:

    When it comes to scopes you're spoilt for choice! There are so many that I could recommend just from knowing what's good and what's not, I've read more reviews on these things than all the other members on here put together (probably!) :D

    Here are some good brands:

    - Hawke
    - MTC
    - Simmons
    - Falcon Optics

    I would also recommend BSA Optics, some people would disagree but generally they're better than they used to be - packed full of features for not-that-much money.

    Hope some of this info helps, it's always good to do your own research though :up:

    nice work on the scopes Mr. Holmes:rolleyes:
    none of us could have come up with them scopes being the best brands:doh::rolleyes:

    you dont actually need the scopes coggy mentioned, yes they are good but not neccesary for plinking and small time hunting.

    i have a BSA 3-9X40 Essencial or something like that.
    anyway, ideal little scope, its light and compact so it wont affect the balance at all.

    ideal for plinking, its accurate and is good quality.
    also i have used it for hunting rabbits out to 35yds so its an exelent scope.

    The makes I mentioned are quality, but you can get cheap models, Simmons scopes start at £45, you can get a Hawke for £13! :eek: I just thought that if you're spending that much money on a gun, you might want a half decent scope with it, but yes a1 you do have a point, there's no need to spend loads ... I never said you did though ;)
