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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

  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.

    Yer'tis, some piccies of the gun and scope then after a bit of zeroing, 10 shots at 7m, JSB exact 4.53, office chair and Primos Gen 3 sticks. The last pic ain't very clear but it is a pellet placed head first in the hole.

    Ahhh I'm glad I've seen this. I was thinking of the little hawke airmax 2-7x32ao for my ultra, but was concerned about mounting it.

    I have the single shot and i dont like the idea of the forward clamp spanning across the gap like that. It seems like it would benefit from a reach forward mount maybe?

    Shouldn't be necessary Gary
    Use BKL 257 mounts and you'll have plenty of room.
    That airmax on Andy's does look way back though.

    This is my son's with a panorama 2-7x32 fitted. Exactly the same sizes and eye relief as the airmax

    I suspect it would be a full on proper pain with a single shot, don't make a shirts worth of difference with a mag.

    So would a reach forward give enough clearance?

    I don't know where I am meant to put me head/cheek so I just with what seems comfortable/natural. Should me head/cheek be in a different position?

    My mate who does shotguns struggles with my scope mounting, he has his head/cheek much further forward. This maybe why I have all the kit and am still shirt.

    I like that set up. I was very interested to see what it’s like with a smaller scope - very nice.

    I think if I hadn't just bought a 3-9x40 for the other ultra I might have done that as well. @Josh K's looks awesome with a shroud and the hubble with extra knobs :)

    Edit : Get the name right PIKE!

    No he didn't I bet he's letting work and family interfere with important air gunning stuff :facepalm:

    I have played around with my 3-9x32 and it is now sat back in a "normal" position like what @robs5230 showed.

    Well that's just not on.

    My airmax 2-7x32ao arrived today courtesy of our mutual friend @robs5230 and I've just mounted it and I didnt let the kids tea burning in the oven prevent me from taking a pic.....

    20191128_181716.jpg

    For what I'm planning on using the ultra for it's the perfect scope. :up:

    Yeah that's how mine looks now.

    Well he's obviously more your friend than mine, he didn't sell me a scope, I had to buy a new one. He's just so fickle, and I poured him a gin yesterday!

    I hate when that happens. Did you pour another 2 on the off chance he would turn up too, but end up drinking that one too?

    I kept pouring for for about 4 hours, well I wanted to give him time to get here, it is the thick end of three hours drive. No, he just didn't turn up. Still I've poured him another now just in case.
