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.

    Wind both turrets as far as they will go, and then wind the all the way back as far as they will go counting each click! Then wind them back to half way.(ie for twenty clicks wind them back ten clicks) this puts the reticles in the centre, then fine tune with a target.

    The info required is which scope, what are the mounts, what's it mounted on & a bit more detail on how the scope won't adjust, like how the point of impact is affected by what you're doing.

    Welcome to the Forum by the way, there's plenty of people here who will help if they can, I think we've all had scope problems of one sort ot another

    That's not a bad find.
    There should at least be the letters R & L for left & right on the adjusters, this is the one on the side - that's the direction the pellet impact is supposed to move. Assuming your shooting at a target 10M away, turn it towards R for 40 clicks & see what happens.

    OK, that's a definitively stuffed scope, & that's an adjustment screw off a truly down market item.
    I don't think you've got anything to lose & something is clearly stuck inside, if it was me I'd give it a couple of good bangs & see if it loosens it, but it's at your own risk. Personally I'd just drop it in the bin...

    You can replace it with another 4x20 for less than a tenner. It will be awful but it should let you at least zero the gun & see what other issues there are.
    I used a 4x20 for many years, there wasn't much else I could afford back then & it did fine, but you can do an awful lot better for not much more cash.

    Are you thinking about refurbishing this gun? an Anshutz will almost certainly be worth it.

    I did buy a new scope and it's doing the same as the old scope I don't mind paying for a scope if it's going to work and yes I would like to do it up will put a pic of it up later​

    hello, there is some info on here about your rifle if you do a search, if you have a duff scope get another maybe s/h but expect need shock proof and 1 p/c mount, a cheapy hawke is ok, you might find can fit silencer if so get matt 975 of here to make a slide on jobby. once you do this can get a better zero but you will sometimes get the odd flyer, try superdomes. should do about 10 ft llbs power.

    There's a few possibilities, like the scope mounts for instance, what's the new scope you've got & did you get new mounts mounts? It's beginning to sound like a misaligned or bent barrel, & maybe the old scope isn't too stuffed either - don't bin it just yet...

    When the gun is closed is there any sign of movement where the barrel hinges? Also, with the scope off, is there any sign of misalignment when you look along it with a mark one eyeball, assuming the range your shooting is about 10 - 20M then the error your getting should be possible to see if the barrel out of line with the cylinder..

    I'm running out of ideas, is there any damage to the end of the barrel, like a dent or something that has affected the bore?
