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.

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.

Went to try a Hatsan Super Edge..

    As I mentioned on another thread I am looking for a synthetic thumbhole stock spring as a birthday present for a family member.

    Following recommendations for Hatsan, I went and had a look at the Striker Edge and the 85xTH.

    I have to say I really liked the way the Striker Edge handled and the firing cycle seemed quite sweet. However, it was let down with a truly terrible trigger. It is supposedly adjustable but felt like the internals was made of blue-tac!

    I then tried the 85XTH. Straight away, the balance and handling felt "different"..not bad different, just different. I think its the extra weight of the moderator on the barrel maybe? The stock felt very solid although you could tell it was hollow.

    On firing, the cycle seemed a little more harsh, with a bit of twang..Although they are supposed to use the same action, the 85XTH felt a bit more powerful. Obviously without a chrony, that is just an impression and could well be wrong.

    The big plus for the 85XTH was the Quattro trigger, which is a huge improvement over the one on the Striker Edge.

    Give the choice, I would have taken a Striker Edge with a Quattro trigger, but as this was not possible, I went with the 85XTH.

    Both air rifles are brilliant value for money, and appear to have very good build quality. I showed the rifle to a few friends who also shoot, and they could not believe the quality at that price point.

    I have yet to choose a scope for the rifle, but am looking forward to seeing how accurate it is..

    I have to say, I am very tempted to buy one for myself, but I will hang fire until I get this 85XTH up and running first.

    So thanks for all the recommendations, but be prepared for a few more questions! :)

    Regards,

    Peter

    Good man,the 85XTH is great and the Quattro will compete with a lot of trigger units above its price.

    Also,the moderator is great on PCPs,it makes my ultra almost silent,better than my Deben whisper,probably due to the size of it.

    Any idea if the Super Edge can be retrofitted with a Quatrro? Alternatively, I see Welsh Willy does an aftermarket trigger for the Super Edge, but it appears to be just a replacement blade, which I can't see improving the pull?

    "On firing, the cycle seemed a little more harsh, with a bit of twang"

    Strip it and give it a good clean and relube with quality grease.
    Im guessing the 85 strips the same as the 55/60?
