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.

  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.

    Hi all - just completed setup with the original cmos 1/3 camera and it looks ok - but i am already thinking of an improved camera - the miniture one Ken mentioned a couple of pages ago no longer seems to be available. My thought is to get one of these dome cams (as they seem to be easy to get - ebay# 280966363500), remove the board and fit into the housing I already have - any thoughts? Or better options - preferably without going to HK or China?
    thanks

    It might be ok give it a go. It might havw a ir cut filter fitted as it is rated at 1lux. But if you remove the cut filter it should be ok

    No worries. The cut filter will either be on the image chip or at the rear of the lens. If its on the chip then you will need to remove it. To see if theres a ir cut filter, tilt the chip slightly to the light and if you see a pink/ red tinted glass that will be the cut filter. If it is on the lens dont bother because when you change the lens for a ir lens then problem solved.

    It was only glued on with a silicone like glue what wasn't very sticky,
    I just unpeeled it off the lens, I didn't find a need for soldering irons or anything, maybe just a small flat head screwdriver to prize it off

    What is the best (but cheap) camera to use at the moment. (Not sure how fast things have changed since I looked last).

    Making a setup for a friend who doesn't want to take the leap into watec territory yet.

    Sorry to be a complete pain in the rear but is there an updated list with exactly what is needed, I have read through the entire thread but there seems to many variations and also a lot of dead hyperlinks for ebay parts, I want to build one for my hmr and it will be for ranges of about 100 yds maybe a little more I already have a dipol 90mw ir laser and also 240 blitz with ir filter,I currently have a cobra merlin which I have used about 6 times in the 5 years of owning it because truthfully I find it a complete pain in the arse to setup but that might just be me .I will be using the nv with a mtc viper 6-24x56 I know i'll get look through the previous posts but can someone please tell me what the best parts variation would be for this scope it would be greatly appreciated thanks
