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.

    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.'

  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.

    Depends how you feel about your 8500 and why you are looking to change? For me, the tight chokes in my Invictus SS were messing with my head...I only shoot Sporting and I was literally talking myself into missing any close birds. If you’re happy with the 8500, how it fits, feels and shoots might be worth giving Teague a call to quote you

    New gun for me . Although it’s 30 odd years old . Only used it a few times with the latest lockdown. Fit is very good and I’ve shot it well . So you are correct why change it . If it works leave it alone .

    Nigel.is no longer part of the company.

    The DT10 is a very good gun and was built to last. There is a nice 32" barreled one for sale on gunwatch for under 3k

    If your not getting on with Berretta then look at browning 525 prestige S/H / miroku mk38 grade 5

    5k is a lot for a gun that may not fit or make you shoot better.

    I found I was a bit meh with the 682gold e

    went to a miroku/ browning fitted better and shot better due to the gun cast and rib.

    german and Italian stuff won’t make you shoot better at this stage

    Apart from my Perazzi the best other gun I shot was a Browning ultra XS prestige circa 2013( with the gold clay on action) that was a great gun, under £2k nowadays

    B525 or MK38 grade 1, get it fitted and spend the rest on a pallet of cartridges and lessons. Much better value than a 5k gun.

    Definitely not! Whether the stock is out of a £100 or £500 blank it costs the same to make on a 3D pantograph. Proper hand engraving costs a great deal but most 'engraving' is either rolled on or etched with a bit of hand finish. An example of a quality machine made gun was the Japanese made Winchesters made in the 70's most of their parts were interchangeable, a fixed choke barrel off a skeet gun would fit a trap or sporter gun, as would the stocks. All mass produced to exacting standards. If I were looking for a shotgun, I would be buying something known to be reliable veteran or vintage definitely not Italian at a couple of grand max and spend the rest on having it fitted to shoot where I am looking.

    I'd disagree with the above.

    My scores improved when I bought the DT10. The balance is better, the bores are better it's much nicer to use. Ok both old hat now but at the time it was 682 gold e or DT10 at those price ranges and there was a huge difference.


    The bits are interchangeable on Italian guns too says the mismatched mx4 in my cabinet.
