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.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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've just acquired a very nicely tuned 80 in a rather unusual stock . the stock is a walnut cs600 ( tyrolean ) from custom stock but has been modified to special order by the original purchaser who i got the 80 from.
    the main differences to the stock are..
    schnabel forend that protrudes past the breech block
    30mm deeper belly that extends below the trigger guard
    thumb groove up the back of the pistol grip
    and the biggy... shortened at the rear end by approx 60mm :O
    this all sounds a bit odd but makes for an unusually good hold. very very comfortable and stable seeming to encourage more of a "target" stance ( my opinion, though i don't shoot targets so may be wrong ). the barrel is a 12" threaded one and has a hw moderator.
    it's the overall feel of how the rifle puts up that has amazed me. the normal feeling of the 80 being a bit of a musket and being heavy on the forend has completely gone. i appreciate the stock is walnut and is lighter and the rest is geometry and physics ( the weight being nearer the body ) but so different.
    the only down side is in appearance. and that is only due to the scope having to be mounted further down the scope rails due to the shorter reach of the stock.
    the action has had some serious work and custom parts fitted resulting in a quick , quiet, low recoil firing cycle that's very pleasing to shoot.
    i'll be trying the 80 now i have the scope fitted and zero'ed on some rabbits and we'll see how i get on with the stock. my feeling at the moment is i'm going to like it.

    pic here, though due to the stock proportions its only scope positioning that gives it away

    16" barrel,really?
    That would make that scope about 18 inchs long.
    I appreciate some of the barrel is in the breech block but even then i dont know about it being 16"

    typo my error, barrel is 12" long :)
    it shoots like no springer i have ever shot, in a real good way. the weight is literally unnoticeable. the work done on the insides is a real credit to its former keeper. hardly any recoil, no twangs just a nice solid thunk.

    The 80 is without doubt a classic, and if you feel comfortable your on to a winner, I have a bog standard One and its a superb vermin tool.

    The stock looks like a hybrid between a CS600 back end and a CS 7/800 front end.

    Next time the actions out of the stock, take alook for a serial number, CS did stamp their stocks with one many years ago.
