    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.

    Hi chaps, just after a little help with rifle mounting my torch. I have a Fenix TK15 torch and a BSA Lightning SE GRT, which has a scope on the rail, what's the best way about fitting a torch onto this?

    Thanks.

    There's plenty of options but the best and most convenient way is something like this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Extended-...Hunting_ShootingSports_ET&hash=item35d60d1c90 on your scope a a weaver base scope mount to fit your torch. This gives you quick release and a good firm mounting which is usually aligned with your scope. If you search on ebay for torch mount you'll find a lot of other options.
    You can also get scope mounts which have a section of the weaver rail on top which is also helpful.

    If you go to the uk Fenix website, you can buy a mount specifically for your model and the scope.
    There is also a company called banggood (do a search) that sells at lower prices

    the first one is similar to the one that ratman60 is talking about, the ones that I've seen have been ok for short range lamping but they aren't likely to end up aligned with your scope (for longer ranges) and they can wobble.
    The second one has rings that clamp onto the scope tube, the weaver rail is part of one ring and you set it on top or to the side depending on where you want your torch. The torch is fitted into a weaver base scope mount which then fixes to the rail. I always use variations on this method.

    I have exactly the same torch and use:

    http://www.torchdirect.co.uk/universal-gun-mounts/sportsmatch-high-quality-scope-mounts.html

    It's basically a Weaver scope mount that clamps onto a Weaver base which has a scope clamp. If you're using a scope bigger than 45mm you can get it in a high version now. I got mine before this addition but got round it by buying a cheap high Weaver mount off ebay (less than £5) and it works fine.

    However ideally what you're looking for is a Weaver scope mount and another mount with a Weaver style rail on it.

    addendum... Oh a nice thing about the sportsmatch option is that if you've got double clamp sportsmatch mounts on your rifle/scope you can use half the torch mount as the top half of the scope mount. Especially useful if you are going to use it often.

    Regardling alignment, I'd just want to light an area up, so does it matter so much if I'm dead centre above scope, or side mount or offset mount?

    It makes little difference where you mount the torch although I would suggest you don't fit it to the barrel or silencer as this can affect accuracy. The only thing to consider is if you will get relections from anything in front of the torch and scope such as the rear of the silencer, this can be reduced with some form of covering.
    It's best to have it fairly well aligned with the scope.

    You may find that is a bit too tight, a high scope mount would be ok if you have the weaver rail on your scope in some form. The 45 degree ones can foul your parallax adjuster or windage turret although you can always fit a mount onto it to move the torch further away.
