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.

    Hi all.

    Well, I've done just about all I wanted with the open sights on the SMK XS36 but, I don't want to remove the open sights. I do, however, want to fit a scope. I've tried a couple of my spares but they were both too long and obstruct the pellet loading bay far too much.

    Now looking for a short-length scope, so that it fits something like this...

    Thinking of a 4X32 fixed scope. My local RFD sells the Hawke version of this for £25 but they still look too long.

    Any advice from you well-seasoned members?

    Found something in the mid-range price tag on fleabay.

    A 3-9X32 AO IR Scope...

    Fits perfectly and clears the breech completely. Even better, I don't have to remove the rear open sight, so I can keep the iron sights in place...

    It's an unbranded scope, but the image is clear enough for me.

    The instructions make quite a few mentions to 'Your Leupold Scope'. At £39 I don't bloody think so. :D

    Cheapo rifle, fitted with a cheapo scope. They go hand-in-hand and it'll do for me for the time being until I can afford a HW97K. :thumb:

    Looks good Tony and nothing wrong with a cheapy scope on a Chinese gun as long as you can hit what you're aiming at accurately:):)...........dom

    Well, I had to shim up the rear mount because it was shooting stupidly low. Not a problem, I've done it before with other scopes.

    But, after a bit of turret tweaking I'm pretty pleased with the results so far. Four shots at a piece of paper with 4 dots on it. OK, it's only at 10m so far, but I'll take it out further over the weekend.

    Can you guess which shots 3 & 4 were?
