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.

    That would be my suggestion as well. A couple of the bell target shooters I know use them - I think that a multishot kit would probably be okay to use with dioptre sights.

    The Hatsan AT44 also has open sights, thing is most manufacturers assume that unless it is a 10 metre target rifle (7.5 joule/6 ft lb limit) you will be using a scope. Therefore finding an iron sighted pcp rifle is a bit of a hiding to nothing!

    IIRC the S200 is available with aperture sights at both 6 and 12ftlb.. worth asking a grown up to check, though.

    I agree with Moley on this occasion - very few options available and I reckon after 10 minutes you'll have junked the irons and fitted the nearest available glassware :p

    On the subject of the Galatian; while absolutely not my cup of tea from many perspectives, the one I played with a while ago suggested that Hatsan are slowly raising the bar with regard to fit and finish :)

    Agree with Mole and Cloverleaf, whilst certainly working to a budget, I couldn't fault the Galatian I touched up recently. The established air gun institutions like AA and HW could learn a thing or two from the Turkish upstarts or face losing market share.

    The Daystate Hunstman was advertised with open sights when they were being released. I tried to buy one, but their Boss decided that they would charge an extra 50 quid for the open sights. I told them to poke off. I have not seen any since with the open sights mind. Perhaps they didn't get any take up.

    Looks good though:

    Of course you could go the other way and look for a BSA Goldstar (10 shot, magazine fed underlever with open sights).

    I'm just sending off my S200 to have a service and to have a set of diopter sights fitted for 10 and 25 mtr target shooting. Sights are about £30 iirc.

    Ooooooo I like the look of the Hatsan Galatain IV. Think that might be my next rifle as I would love a PCP with open sights.

    Just seen the Hatsan Galatain II, now I'm torn to which I like more.

    Diopters arent ideal for normal shooting.
    The Galatian is a new bit of kit but i must abmit the open sight 16 shot 177 looks very nifty:)
    lots of old guns around but i wouldnt dismiss an HW99 break barrel with tru glow open sight cracking little springer.
