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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.

    Well, it's a classic internet forum browsing moment. You have literally no need to do so, but an advert catches your eye and before you know it - after a couple of glasses - you have a new purchase heading your way.

    That's - again - what happened to me last week. Saw a Hawke 30 Compact SF 4-16 x 44 (EDITED) scope up for sale on another site and went ahead and grabbed it. Today it arrived and for less than two-thirds the price of it new I have an "as new" scope in superb condition. Everything included and also separately a set of Sportsmatch one-piece mounts purchased too.

    Today the scope got fitted to the wonderful TX200HC .22 and I too it to the gun club for zero-ing. Fortunately it doesn't look dissimilar to my old scope on the TX so my girlfriend won't spot the purchase. The reason why I changed was that the Bushnell scope was crosshair and I wanted a reticle with mil dots for distance shooting.

    Zero-ed to 25 yards, which actually took a bit of time because the JSB Exact RS pellets can produce fliers once in a while. Anyway, got the consistent groupings after a while and am very happy. Did some Chairgun tests and the rifle is running at 11.7ft/lbs with these lighter pellets, so will need to keep an eye out.

    Particularly pleased that towards the end of the session was consistently hitting 55 yard (ranged) spinners - a string of four in a row pretty good! Four mil-dots of hold over at x10 did the job. This is a quality springer that I shall never part with.

    Will post some pix over the weekend. Thanks for reading. Tonight it's the anniversary of me and my partner meeting - and it looks like she has secured a new job. Celebrations :)

    What height Sportsmatch mounts are you using, and how do you get on with the line of sight relative to the cheek piece?

    A 50mm scope on a TX is too high for a lot of shooters, although from your results it seems to be working for you. I like my scopes quite high but 40mm AO or 44mm SF is about as high as I'm happy with. Both will go on SM medium mounts if you don't use cheap plastic lens caps. I'm guessing the 50mm objective needs high mounts.

    God sorry I am wrong - it's the 44mm objective front lens ...

    Yes, so it is the 44mm front lens and fitted to the medium mounts that support 44mm maximum. They're fine and work well ... only issue I had was a bit of fiddling trying to get the mounts to sit square on the dovetails. The included scope covers "just" about clear the rifle block.
