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.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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.

    Mr Moderator,
    How does this post comply with the Forums For Sale rules?
    Soon we will be having every dealer in the country posting an ad on here because it's free.

    What they could do is give us a heads up & first dibs on trade ins, it's only fair because we are special and they'd be going to a good home.

    Anyway back to the scopes, how do they compare to say a Nikko Panamax?

    They’re actually very nice budget scopes...

    ive owned a 4-16x50 Lynx

    work nice with Pard 007

    nothing like higher end hawke quality but I’ve seen far worse

    but.... these have been £120 for a while... what warrants the sudden price hike?

    I have it from a reliable source that the factory where they are packed has been hit hard by the Corona virus, they consequently had to draft in agency workers that demanded an extra two yuan a week. As they say our costs go up .your costs go up:). On a serious note, they are very good even with the price increase.

    Excellent budget Scopes, with good glass for the money. I was so impressed with my Valiant HFT, that I have purchased the Lynx 4-16 50.

    So to answer all the questions...

    1. I'm afraid Valiant are no longer doing Zephyr scopes.

    2. We've been posting on here for a number of years now. We have our own section of the forum to put our posts with prices. We don't just post sale posts. We join in conversations, always post on here first of any offers there may be to have. Any special guns for sale always get posted here first. We donate to the forum meet every year. Always try and do our best prices for forum members.

    3. Comparing these against a panamax i would say these are slightly better. 30mm tube, side focus, slightly better clarity in my opinion.

    4. Price hike is due to manufacturing costs. They have tried to offset the price increase a little with the inclusion of a free set of 2 piece dovetail mounts.

    5. There is no 5. Happy Tuesday.
