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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    Nice.
    Always 2 ways to look at extended warranties:
    They need to offer it as they're unreliable / have a poor reputation.
    They offer it willingly as they have absolute confidence that their product isn't going to fail.

    Hopefully the latter one is true for CZ :up:

    I have had the T bolt and a CZ. I just fancied a change. But to be honest there is nothing in it between them. One thing is for sure, you soon realise just how bloody heavy and big most 'pcp 's are. Lol. KB1

    Thanks for all your ideas and opinions guys, my heart says t bolt as I handled one a few months ago and It just felt right. I also looked at a cz453 premium and a ruger American and the t bolt stood out, I think I will go that route but a nice s/h Annie also appeals to me:D decision decisions. Whatever I get it will need to be ambi or l/h as I'm also left eye dominant so shoot crack handed but I write and do everything r/h basically a freak lol.my air rifles are l/h stock but r/h action but I'm sure I could operate a l/h bolt!

    First afternoon with my Anshutz 1517. 100 yards - I suspect it is far more accurate than I am. Picked this on up SH for about the same money as a cz. Very happy with it.

    Hi gasman, yes I think you're right. I'm putting that group down to me rather the the ammo. That was using hormandy. Have a box of Winchester to try as well.

    I had a Tbolt in 17HMR, great gun, crap caliber, ended up swapped it for a CZ455 in 22LR. I'm not a massive fan of 17HMR, basically it noisy and ammo fussy. Can get better performance out of a .22CF for the same noise and hassle. I've advised friends to go .22LR and .22CF before they ignored me and after 6 months admitted I was right and got rid of the 17HMR

    I have no idea where you`re coming from with the above quote.
    any .22 CF cannot be compared to a an HMR by any stretch of the imagination and the price per pop will be at least four times the price.
    ANY centrefire muzzle blast WILL be louder than an HMR,but you will not moderate the supersonic crack from either.
    the majority of rifles (in any calibre or type) are ammo fussy and that goes for LR,HMR or air.
    I have more guns than I can shake a stick at and will never be without an HMR and have no need for an LR as the FAC rapid will do just as well on medium range rabbits.

    Everyone's ground is different.
    My centre fire days ended a couple of years ago and while my patches are ideal for the hmr I just don't like that light a bullet so chose the wmr instead. I can shoot from 25grn to 50grn. I have shot no less fox with it than my centre fires before it and I no longer get tempted to shoot over great distances . In fact I wish they made a .25 version that shot heavier bullets on a bigger case of the same length.
    Years ago reloading was cheaper than wmr ammo but not really any more other than maybe hornet and softer loads on slow/magnum shotgun powders.

    I've had a ruger m77 /mk2 before now and it was a cracking hmr! Very well built /best built hmr I've had to be honest .

    I've had a cz 455 , that was OK.

    Tbolt very good for value ..

    Now got an ansutchz 1517 and yet the most accurate for me .
