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. 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

    I have brought the Weihrauch HW95 .22 as a gift but I would really appreciate some advice on a suitable scope. The rifle will only be used for target shooting up to 50 yards. Budget is £200.
    Thanks

    Personally I would lower my expectations a bit, I own a 95 .22 myself, it is a very capable rifle, but , 50yds is a very long way. I have a 2-7x32 Leapers on mine, used mainly for squirrels ( which it is really good at) and plinking.
    You'd also get quite a bit of change from £200
    Enough to keep it in pellets for quite a while

    I fit 2-7x32's on my mid-weight rifles as they aren't too obtrusive and weighty and they give you good mag' levels for close up and longer range shooting. Bearing in mind that everyone's eyesight (and preferences) are different, I like the Hawke Panorama 2-7x32, the optics quality is noticeably better than the Vantage I also have and both have reticles suitable for longer range .22 shooting. I also like the Konus Pro 2-7x32 or 3-9x32, though both are 30/30 ret's, but glass is good for the prices.

    Right now Optics Warehouse are selling Optisan 4-12x40AO scopes for £90. They are worth about £200 or so and are absolutely brilliant. Mega bargain.

    50 yards is not as far as you'd think. If I can knock down an HFT target at 50 yards standing with an open sight springer, even a 1935 one, you can with practise hit it with a scope . . . yeh don't throw the scope at it :) :facepalm:

    I tried a large x 50 on my '95k, but it prefers the 2-7 x 32 Hawke I have on it now (I just leave at 6 as I notice after 6 the poa and poi change) and this is a scope I have hit targets at 50 yards with.

    With practise and the right pellet for your rifle it's surprising how good you will get :thumb:

    Thanks for the advice. I was looking at the 4–12 x 40 Hawke. What are thoughts on this?

    I've got a 4-12x40 hawke airmax AO on my 95k (.177). I had (and was quite happy with) the airmax AO in 3-9x40 and went to buy a second for my 99 (.22) but they weren't in stock so rfd offered me the 4-12X40 which I put on the 95 as I shoot that longer range.
