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.

  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.

The 98's arrived to keep the 97 company!

    Finally the 98 has arrived, fully tuned by Welsh Willy, what a rifle, I haven't tried one from the factory but this one is so smooth and almost recoilless, all you get is a subtle thud and thanks to the heavyweight barrel shes nice and steady up front. The stippling on the wrist of the gun and on the fore end of the stock is really deep and almost feels synthetic and certainly gives plenty of grip. when cocking there is no noise at all and you cant even feel the components inside falling into place ready to be released by the trigger. really looking forward to taking this to the range and getting involved with some competitions. The 98 is a real solid bit of kid and noticeably lighter than my 97 (which you'd expect), after a day and a half its already producing some nice tight groups. nothing seems to be sacrificed by it being a break barrel.

    These are two different rifles and I thought the 97 was smooth from the box but the 98 feels so much nicer, this could be because ones an under lever and the other a break barrel but i'm putting it down to the WW tune so next time i'm passing ill be dropping my 97 in for some Welsh Willy treatment as I think its well worth it.

    people slate these Weirauchs for having boring and non inspired looks but I personally think these are two lovely stocks and both standard. this only leaves one question.... what will I be getting in the future to keep the 97 & 98 company... addictive hobby this! But happy with my choices so far.

    He emailed me today to say he's having silencer adapters for the 98 made which he thinks will balance it further and cut down on the muzzle sound. Worth enquiring about if you hunt with yours.

    The 98 went down a storm at the range last night, I'm putting pellet on pellet with it at just shy of 30 yards (rested) and shooting this side by side to my untuned 97 there is a huge difference, my new favourite gun!

    You got some good looking air rifles there, A couple of my mates shoot 97's but I never got underlevers.

    I reckon you can't beat a good break barrel , I've hardley shot my pcp since I got the 98.
    Hope you ennoy it as much as I enjoy mine

    I just find it a pleasure to shoot, the barrel certainly help with the recoil, hitting the knock down targets we use for in house comps at 25 yards standing 3-4 times out of 5, and hitting the bell target resting most times, im just afraid i may neglect my 97 now... but spoke to WelshWilly tonight and i may be droppng it off to him tuesday for him to use his magic on it... shame you cant shoot two rifles at once!
