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.

  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.

    Hi all, I'm new to the forum, looking to get into shooting. after doing my research my starter gun I would like to go with the Stoeger x20s.

    I don't have a massive budget and this seems to tick all the boxes for me.

    Any other suggestions/sales welcome :)

    I had one and the trigger was terrible. For the same budget look at hatsan 60s or Remington express. Both budget but much more workable.

    If you are considering a Hatsan, make sure it has the Quattro trigger unit ... IIRC the 900 doesn't ? Look for either the 50S (.177) or 60S (.22)

    Thanks for the heads up, what's wrong with the trigger mech on the 900?

    As far as I can recall the 900X isn't fitted with the Quattro trigger unit that is almost on a par with the Rekord fitted to Weihrauch rifles ... nothing inherently wrong with that, but the non-Quattro units are very crude in comparison :up:

    Heyup James...

    I have the Stoeger X20, the 900 Hatty AND the 55S Hatty.

    Each one has it own foibles..

    Stoeger X20 (in both calibres)- light ,compact and to me ergonomic, not too loud (quieter with fettling and a delrin top hat kit). The trigger was a little "sloppy" but with a simple fix and modification, I am more than happy with it..

    Hatty 900 (.22 cal) - CHEAP and functional, the moderator is as much use as a chocolate teapot so I binned mine and made a PROPER one...Again, the internals were improve3d by an application of fettling, de-burring all the complimentary burrs and using the proper moly grease for lubrication. A delrin top hat kit was also fitted which made id a nice little springer.

    Hatty 55S (.1277 cal) - Make sure you go to the gym... for a .177 this rifle is bloody heavy in comparison to others. I did extensive internal work on ALL the steel parts to try and reduce the mass... its basic and functional, BUT.. the best thing is the Quattro trigger assembly... I also made a moderated shroud for the rifle which again, r3educes th3e bark, but as per most springers, you get alot of "mechanical twang" from the internals...

    If you want photos, no probs..

    Good luck...
