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.

    Thank you.

    '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.

    Sooo... last year I had a bit of a hankering for a new PCP, something a little lighter than the R10 and more pointable for barn work up at the farmer in laws.

    I thought I was fairly sure I'd end up with a BSA Ultra, modded & regged etc. Turns out after an afternoon chilling & plinking with @RagnarHairybreeks and his brother, he and his brother had a couple of other suggestions, one of which being the FX Dreamline. After a bunch of research and having persuaded the other arf that this was something that was very much needed (honest luv) I set about ordering the DreamTac with a few bits from my RFD in October '20.

    The order included:
    .177 DreamTAC bottled version.
    FX No limits scope mounts
    2x extra mags
    Folding stock adapter
    580cc bottle

    With additional orders elsewhere placed for:
    Buffer tube
    Rear receiver plate
    Castle nut & tool
    Hogue 'Red lava' Stock & grip
    Konus 6-24x F30 FFP scope
    Konus SightPro TR

    Long story somewhat shorter, this is how she looks, although the photo's are somewhat crap due to lighting. I'll try and get some better ones when I have more time.

    She shares the R10's bipod and sling as needed and I repurposed the R10's CCS moderator and muzzle adapter (previously unused since the R10 has her Bowkit bonded shroud) for a little noise dampening, albeit not my first choice, but a cheap one all the same.

    I did learn in my using and setting up of the DreamTac that i would need a few other bits, just to make my life easier. These come in handy if you want to 'sling' it.

    [​IMG]

    Left - Quick release push fit sling stud, fits into one of at least three locations in the hogue stock.
    Middle - Picatinny rail 'side' sling fitting.
    Right - FX female quick coupling (o-ring fitted inside and bonded seal fitted on the external thread)

    Other bits:
    RAP4 reach forward rail extension
    CARM mag holder & 3x 16 shot night glow carm mags (one shown fitted)
    FX mounts replaced by Konus quick release mounts

    That's my little DreamTac, and she's performing rather well for bunnies in the fields and pigeons in the barns. For me, it's mission accomplished, as it does exactly what I set out to do, albeit with a bit more expense than initially thought, and a little more still to come. Some might ask "why the Konus SightPro?" well the simple answer is, focus/parallax. Although both my scopes parallax down to 10 yards, at closer ranges in some of the barns to the rafters the target just isn't in focus (at 6-8 yards) where I'm comfortable to pull the trigger. I decided to go 'quick release' instead and swap to whichever optic I needed depending where I went first, then swap back and check zero.

    Future plans? Yeah, I do plan to upgrade the pressure gauges and probably the top picatinny rail to a 20moa rail, especially if I decide to go FAC in the future. Then it'll be a calibre change or two but I see no reason why between the DT and R10 I can't do the vast majority of what I want or need.
