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.

    I’m thinking of buying a used PCP rifle (no age limit) with a max budget of about £800.
    Which make has the best build quality (materials, fit & finish)? Is there a manufacturer that stands above the others to a measurable degree?
    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Bought the Leishy by the way, brilliant little rifle but I’d like a ‘normal’ gun to go with it.

    Air arms or fx would be worth looking into.

    If you can find one, thats nots been messed about with. Id look at Daystate MK3 the stocks on some, are stunning snd the blueing is awesome.
    Down side heavy, some may not be regged, and to some, they dont like the electronic trigger.

    Thats my view, on the second hand market. Cheaper than 800.
    Id go new, look at HW100 range.
    Everyone will give different views. You have opened a can of worms.

    With that budget, you're very close to Steyr money.

    For 800 you can find a used Steyr or Ripley. No other rifles mentioned so far come anywhere near them for quality & engineering.

    Or Titans. Or a Galway Fieldmaster. Or early Daystates.

    But, realistically, I think AA and the HW100 have it, in stock form.

    Probably. Is it a gun with a damn good reputation though?....

    The reality is that unless you're going into competitions or going full or because money, hah, then at 800 quid second hand, the world is your oyster and any gun at that price point will be far more capable than the shooter will ever be. That is the realities of PCP's. You can spend a boat load, but a basic AA pcp would be as good as anyone really needs.

    You can you can’t with a good old HW100

    It's a tough one, I don't think I would buy an old model Daystate even if it was new in the box and with my experiences with FX the only model I would buy would be the Royale.

    AA dont generally cost a lot more than £800 new so it's not very exciting is it? HW100 etc. well an excellent gun but IMO boring as well!

    As mentioned above the Steyr would be a good bet, if I had £800 to spend I would probably just buy a new AA in truth!

    Double loading isn’t the bee all and end all of a rifle!
