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.

    If the TX is an HC that's where my money would go, especially with the MTC that's a nice package.

    TX for me too, don't like short barrels, and the TX is very easy to shoot, even a decrepit old fart like me can get a reasonable group. What is the advantage of a "short stroke"?

    I have had both and prefer both of them over the HW97 (different conversation) but out of the two the Prosport just feels more refined.
    Yes there is scope to improve both of them with a bit of tuning but out of the two the Prosport does feel like it doesn't need it.
    The trigger also seems a bit better on the PS although that might have been an illusion on my part.
    Personally Prosport but nothing wrong with either.

    not sure but I think short stroke gives you a faster firing cycle.

    Tx200, the prosport has a big following but side by side the tx200 is a better work horse, better cocking system safety system, same barrel and pretty much same internals, better balanced IMO.
    I have had tx200hc, tx200, and prosport, and I still have my HC and only just swaped my tx200 full length because another gun I fancied came up.

    Well I had an interesting day it turns out the tx was a walnut pro sport.
    The guy selling it used to shoot at our club.

    The tx200 listing was up for 3 weeks his mate put it up for him and wrote tx instead of prosport
    the pro sport is brand new in walnut 300 pellets through it.
    with 4-12 viper and gun bag for £350.
    The listing went up when he was in desperate need of cash .
    I phoned him just now and he is now keeping it and realises it was far far to cheap
    if I had called the day the ad went up it would all have been mine for £350.
    Im gutted I was so slow to call but then again its taking advantage of someone's financial predicament.
    so all that is available is a beech pro sport for £300 that now pales in comparison to the walnut one with viper
    cheers

    I'm selling my full length beech TX to buy a walnut Prosport.

    even though I've placed the ad in sales, I'm still in two minds!

    To help you make up your mind JK, you could just use the open sights on your Hw80. ; )
