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 think the difficulty here is going to be “well my bottle is bigger than yours” lol.."

    Interestingly the .177 REDWOLF 12FPE gun gives 450-500 shots at 12, however the REDWOLF HP give 400 shots on 20+FPE low power curve, but only 150 at 30FPE high power curve, this must mean that the way the gun is set up is critical and a lot more air is needed to get a little more energy, on low power the TP would also be large VS the HP curve relatively speaking, so pehaps expansion and air flow also aid in efficiency!

    Perhaps an open university degree in pneumatics would be a good thing during the next 12 weeks of isolation?

    P15 available in all flavours .177, .22, .25 ( sorry .20 fans)
    In the larger calibres they are capable of producing some serious power, geographical location and legal paperwork permitting of course.

    As much as it pains me to say it, the electronic Daystates are amongs the most air efficient guns I've tested; others have come close but I can't remember what they are now!

    Of course all else being equal stuff with large barrel volumes will always be more efficient; so large calibre and long tube ;)

    350mm barrel Leshiy in .22 would be pretty frugal on air if properly tuned. If you're willing and able to use one, just get a pump as a backup. Or a Sharp Innova isn't a Springer.

    Oh yes the r10 .177 275 shots from a 200b fill down to 100b 280cc

    And Im going to hate this but the p15 .177 275 shots from a 200>85b 225cc I believe beats it

    Ive not yet done a full shot count with this cricket but it seems very good on air

    If the 380mm barrel on the Crown Continuum VS the 500mm is anything to go by the 350mm EDGUN will definitely not be the way to go, unless of course you did fit a long barrel to it? does ED do longer barrels for them?

    The HW110 has a 0.17 ltr will give you over a 100 regulated shots, without having a huge bottle on the gun.
    A quick fill and you're good to go for another 100 consistent shots...actually maybe more if you choose .22
    it's more efficient than .177 with the air..

    I thought you measured Daystates minutes per fill rather than shots per fill :laff:

    The electronic daystates have got to be amongst the best, but a well setup impact has got to be up there

    Does anyone remember the old BSA Spitfire & Firebird break barrel & underlever pcps?
    Some kind of Bowkett invention with a mega efficient valve set up, apparently they were quite good in air, depending on if it was HF or not.

    My theoben rapid mk2 sub 12ft/lbs .22 with a 480cc carbon buddy bottle can eat a full tin of pellets from a full charge.

    It's got a longer 18" CZ barrel on now so it should do a few more shots.
