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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.

    If the gun could be manufactured by someone else I'd agree with Steve and go for an AA S410 Classic...definitely in .177.....the gun is superb, the company and the other hand are crap at looking after customers.

    Virtually every electronic Daystate I've ever seen has had issues. Daystate's QC is terrible. Their aftersales is excellent but far too many need to use it.

    Are you all crazy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
    Airwolf beats the mfr hands down guys. Sub 2 inch groups at 100 yards in .177 12ft/lb, electronic, awesome trigger, built like a brick shithouse and awesome regulator, accuracy like you would not believe.
    You would be an absolute c~!k to choose a theoben over it.
    Theoben use to and not sure if they still do but they used Gamo triggers on their rapids. To buy a new trigger would cost more than buying the gamo gun it came off and taking it off that!
    Daystate all the way.
    Those who think Theoben have either not fired/used an airwolf or they are Theoben cult members!

    Rich I took a few shots of it at wighill park guns and took it. Its a lot of money but you will never need another again, I chose the 177 due to its quicker velocity. Some long range rabbits would somehow manage to dodge my 22 S410 which I didn't take too kindly to.

    Theoben haven't fitted the awful Gamo trigger for some time now. Their current trigger is actually quite good and better than the switch Daystate put on the Wolf. I've never owned a Theoben and probably never will. I've used many and they simply do not appeal to me. If I wanted a 30 ft/lb airgun it'd probably be a Rapid but at 12 ft/lb many other guns do the job for me at a much cheaper price. I have however owned two electronic Daystates and will certainly never own another. Unreliable and issues with both power and accuracy. The old style 4 bolt Daystate breech is simply too flimsy due to too much metal being removed for the tray and mag. For the Mk4 they've added extra bolts somewhat prooving my point but they still remove the metal.
    As a final point on Daystates I know of two Mk4's - both of which have had to go back due to issues.

    No probs with the Airwolf Darren. If you want a heavyweight then check out the AirRanger, they do a 40 and 80ft/lb which would be ideal for foxes but obviously headshots.
    The trigger is a new sensation but once you get use to it its fantastic as just clicking a mouse. This helps aid accuracy as there is no/very little movement when pressing the trigger which although electronic fully adjustable.

    tried the airwolf today and got to say i loved it:).my only concerns are the electonic system out in the elements of hunting.i seem to get the impression that the theoben is a bit of a marmite.

    Been out with mine in the rain and still fine. Just treat it like any other rifle, if it gets wet then take off stock, remove water with kitchen towel then leave to dry naturaly.
    It is a corker the Airwolf isn't it dude.
    Put up a few vids on Youtube under my name Choperus23 to prove accuracy if you want more evidence to part with that cash to buy one!
