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.

    '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.

    Ive got a 25mm scope,ive got a 25mm torch..i want to put said torch on scope.Ive bought one of the rubbery thingys with double velcro, but tbh, its not great.:down:like the one in the bottom of the picture
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CREE-Gree...Hunting_ShootingSports_ET&hash=item33881de4fe


    Ive bought one of those clampy things with one big screw in it which clamp said torch to scope, but i have to put camo tape round the scope otherwise it will mark scope(tart!!).but its a bit naff, shall we say:down:http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HUNTING-L...Hunting_ShootingSports_ET&hash=item3f2e2e66fc


    ive seen these, but it means faffing round with a screw driver every time
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/JACK-PYKE...Hunting_ShootingSports_ET&hash=item5d3f09fb93

    so i thought about two weaver scope mounts and wondered if they can be made to go base to base, one on the scope, one of the torch,and join in the middle, anybody done it?
    Or two dovetail mounts with a double dovetail joiner?

    Your thoughts and pictures would be appreciated greatly, theres a lot of head scratching going on here..cheers Paul:D

    Ive found this one, but a tad pricey..
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Tracer-Qu...Hunting_ShootingSports_ET&hash=item4179717ac3

    I thought about these, but sticking them on an expensive scope could be sacre bleu!!

    you would need two because the height of the mounts would bound to be different..

    Keep em coming though, you guys are doing well

    If you've already got a figure 8 mount you could cut off the end without the weaver rails and throw that away. Fit the end with weaver rails to the scope and use a weaver base scope mount to fit your torch. If you fit it with the mounts to each side you can fit 2 torches or 1 torch and your monitor etc.

    If you put the Talon clips in with some black clothes dye they will take on the colour as they're made of nylon.

    So what about something like this?
    $_12.JPG

    25mm end on scope and the diamond bit on the torch? Quick release in the middle with a thumbscrew.

    have a closer look on this:

    IMG_20131109_174836.jpg

    1" to weaver adaptor mounted on scope,
    30mm weaver mount used for torch
    the torch itself is 27mm, so two rubber half-rings used to adjust it nicely

    I use a special Sportsmatch mount. Half of it is a Weaver mount. The other has a mirror of the Weaver mount so the torch can be easily removed without a screwdriver. Half the mount stays on the gun and can either be clamped separately or you can just use the lower half of the mount as the top half of the clamp for the proper scope rings - make sense?

    It cost £30 or so but it does work. When using it on a bigger scope I purchase a cheap Weaver high mount (£5 off ebay) and that works a treat.

    I got one of these:-

    torch_mount.jpg

    It's a bit fiddly to fit but has the merit that you can rotate it on the 'scope very easily. Ebay link http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/281241672000/ but I don't think I paid that much for it. I don't remember where I bought it.
