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.

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.

    Hi All,

    im looking for recommendations on moderators for .22LR and .17HMR.

    i haven't bought the rifles yet as im waiting for my FAC to come back, but i will probably be going for a browning t-bolt in .22LR and a Anschutz 1517 for .17HMR.

    i have read a lot of reviews so far on moderators and the favoured one seem's to be the SAK for value for money.
    but the quietest seems to go to the ASE Utra Dual Rimfire, even though its double the price of the SAK.

    what would you recommend?

    Cheers

    Personally I like the DM80's, I have one on each. Bit expensive but nice and quiet and easily strippable for cleaning. Love the look of them too.

    I use a SAK on the HMR and a Scirrocco SM11 on the .22. There's very little difference in sound reduction between them.
    I used to have them the other way around but the Scirrocco comes apart in a very awkward place making it difficult to get off the HMR barrel if it gets a bit stuck as it sometimes does after a good days/nights shooting.

    To be honest, on the .22lr, any reasonable mod will do if your using subs, there's hardly a difference in them !
    The .17hmr, no matter WHAT you stick on it, is going to sound LOUD !
    The sound is from the bullet going supersonic, not from the barrel so much.
    Some mods may be a LITTLE quieter on the .17hmr than others, but again, there's not a lot in it.
    Some have a different SOUND than others, which may make them sound a little quieter to YOU, but down range, you wouldn't notice it !!
    Shhhh, don't say any of this to the manufacturers though, they need to make their money somewhere ! :D:D

    Don't waste your money on anything other than a 'sak'. And when its had its day, go out and spend another £40 on another one. I have wasted a ton of money on 'mods' and wish I had stuck with me first 'Sak'. KB1

    had quite a few rimfire mods to be honest on my hmr/22lr , for me the sak is certainly the best value for money but if you can/want to stretch your budget for something a bit nicer engineered and better sound reduction ( to my ears) and nicer looking , jeez how gay does that sound, then i have experience of the following

    ase utra - quite heavy and a dull finish but very effective for noise suprresion , end of barrel mod
    aetec - quite light and very nicely engineered and can add/remove baffles and to me looks the biz, however for noise supression on the HMR no better than the sak, but sooooo much nicer looking , its now on my ..22 annie 1417
    wildcat reflex mod- quite a large, wide diameter mod , easily stripped and very good noise supression, this is on my hmr at the moment and highly recommended
    DM80- as the wildcat to be honest and highly recommended only reason i sold it was it was part of the rifle package
    LEI- this was on my stainless savage 93 hmr and is tiny, about 4-5" long and same diameter as a varmint barrel , sealed unit and to be honest it was amazing, not the quitest , but not far off , but very small, light and looked amazing

    my choice now wouold be
    1. LEI
    2. Wildcat/DM80/ASE - choose which one you prefer
    3. Aetec
    4. Sak

    hope this helps
    cheers

    I've got a Sirocco DM11 on my CZ and a TG 60 which sits mainly on my Anchuntz HMR , I'm happy with both but the TG60 looks the Dogs b******ks! Due to it's small size and is very to take apart to clean.

    That said, I've no experience of other makes for rimfire so cannot give an honest informed opinion which is the best out there. I saw a you tube video and the stumpy swift was considered the best for the price.

    TG 60

    As it happens i now have a mint condition browning T bolt .22LR fitted with a mint condition dm80 mk4 mod, they do go together rather nicely, and they are both for sale.Topped off with a nice hawke scope and a spare mag.give me a shout.
    sorry to squeeze that one in, but the dm80 is robust, easy to clean and a large improvement over the sak,dont get me wrong the sak does the job,but you could go on a road trip in an austin allegro....or a lexus..
    ive tried them both,the dm80 is much much better made.

    edit, forgot to say, dont matter what you put on hmr, you wont shut it up, its the bullet which goes supersonic which makes the bang,not the powder igniting as you would think,most mods will quieten the report from the powder ignition but youll never quieten the crack
