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.

    Thinking of buying one of these as my first pcp. Any heads up/warnings from the experienced members?

    Also what caliber? I am leaning towards .22

    Any advice is welcome, thank you all!

    P.S: How is the trigger?

    Personally if you’re buying new in this price bracket I’d look at the Gamo Phox or Gamo Coyote. If you search the forum there is the odd good RM8 out there but plenty of threads relating to quality concerns. On the other hand the Gamo’s mainly get praise.

    Hi
    I have a RM8.177 and a Gamo Phox .177. There both great Rifles IMO. I prefer the RM8 but that’s my personal opinion. I think it looks more the part. But I must say they are both very accurate. I seam to have been lucky to get a good RM8 because there does seam to be some iffy ones around!!!!!.That said I do prefer to use the RM8 and will probably sell the PHOX on at some point!!!. Brian...

    If hunting the RM8 is a hefty lump. There are concerns about quality.
    Please also consider BSA Ultra, Air Arms S200/400. Lighter and good guns too.

    The BSA barrels are best described as variable. Most are excellent, but there are some out there that are as rough as hell. Try before you buy.

    I had one in 177, it was extremely accurate but a little heavy.
    For the money if you get a good one you can't go wrong.

    Never had a RM8, when looking for a pcp I done some digging, the feedback I read scared me off and I opted for the BSA Ultra. But, its like everything else in life, you get good, you get bad. Shoulder both to see which suits best but personal choice would be the BSA.

    I am going to go view and shoot a second hand bsa ultra that’s in mint condition apparently. It’s not the fast reload one. It’s the bolt so if it functions well will buy it :)

    Don't get scared off by the MMC version (older type) they're brilliant. The MMC has a push lever under the reservoir.
    This is the MMC type.

    And this is the latter Ultra SE
