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.

  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. No longer allowed 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- We now do not allow political and religion threads anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section) unless Airgun related and they must be put in the Airgun related politics section..

    Staff will not move posts for you if you put it in the wrong section – it will simply be deleted. You will then have to type it all out again and put it in the right place, so heed this warning.

    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 all, just picked up a very nice s/h Walnut stocked TX200HC with the shrouded barrel, question is, is it worth fitting a silencer to it, the guys in the shop (Trulock & Harris) said doesnt make much differnce to noise any thoughts or anyone done it its a MK3 HC

    Cheers

    Ive got the full length MK3 and it doesnt apear to scare the bunnies, to take a second shot you more likely to scare them by re-cocking the gun.
    Wether the MK3 is quieter then the HC MK3 with the standard plenum silencer i cant comment.

    Whilst I like silencers. The TX200hc doesn't really need one. Plus it looks so bad with one fitted.

    The HC is noticeably noisier than the full length. Not much point in a silencer for hunting though given the substantial movement to recock is going to give the game away not to mention the ratchet (that can be avoided). For back yard work it'll damp the noise for the neighbours.

    To be completely honest fitting a silencer will not make the TX any more quiet

    I had a silencer on my TX200hc and the silencer worked spot on for muzzle report, made it a bit too long for my liking though

    I always use a silencer on my tx200hc mk2.
    1: to try and be nice to the neighbours when can hunting
    2: to not scare the horses at my local perm when ratting in the barns

    Only problem with fitting the silencer is it makes it just as long if not longer than the hc version.

    Well I am after the new AA silencer for the TX200 HC, not that I want to silence the gun but I personally think it looks better with one fitted. Just my point of view.:)

    just bought a new tx200hc, also am aa silencer to go on it..

    Looks crap,very long, bit less noise, downfield the crack will probably be noticably quiter though.

    Ideal if you could just pop it on for hunting, though the point of impact will probably change when removing or fitting silencer so would need re zeroing again....pain! My hw100 doesnt change POI at all when removing silencer, doubt the tx will be the same though, yet to test it.
