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.

    '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.

    Not wishing to p**s on anyone's cornflakes, but it looks more like an (entry level) Silver Antler to me. Happy to be proven wrong, though :)

    I'm guessing silver antler also. I have a Euroclass scope from the same era and it says euroclass on it so would assume it would say worldclass on this?

    Under the eyebell there should be some writting im guessing it will say AG 4x40 WA Japan, so probly a silver antler 4x40 wide angle.
    Ive just fitted one on my HW95 its got the old Tasco style purple type coatings and i think its a cracking scope its PX to 25yards, zeroed it in 10 shots shooting off my knee then scored my best springer score going around the course standing shots only.
    No issues shooting into dark areas also no whiteout problems shooting into the sun, nice full sight picture pretty much fills the whole eye bell, clarity pretty good and easily on par with a modern panorama though the panoram image is brighter.

    Cost me £30 including mounts and its in good condition, think im going to leave it on HW95 as it suites the gun well for me and it nice to have a gun with a basic 30/30 ret.

    I'd say it's an early World class model, later models came with a fast focus eye piece,

    well ground lens and purple lens coatings, often copyed seldom matched.

    No silver antler scopes were made in Japan.

    The eye piece locking collar gives the age away, it's probably the best part of 30 years old.

    If you've seem bronze coloured mofit staggs on Tasco scopes, it's more than likely discoloured.

    I've got a 24 year old Tasco catalogue, there's not a bronze buck or staggs head to be seen. ; )

    Wish I had some of the scopes that featured in it though.

    The silver antlers had 'silver antler' wording on the saddle, likewise the golden antlers :)

    I'd say its a world class.

    Looks similar to my Tasco 4x40WA World Class which has purple coatings on the lenses.The only difference is that my world class 4x40 has rubber screw caps over the adjusters and a thin silver spacer ring (alloy) between the front bezel and the body tube.Mine also has a silver stag's head on the saddle and it's definitely a world class because I bought it new about 20-25 yrs ago and still got the box it came in,cost £53.10.It sat in the cupboard for years as I gave up airgunning until I started again just recently,its now mounted on a gamo shadow RSV at the moment.
