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.

  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.

    The one you can hit your target with,the R10 has a nice shot count which is something to bear in mind.

    The question you need to answer first is which one fits you the best, you need to shoulder all which you fancy and see which you like the best.

    Also do you need a big shot count? If so buddy bottle rifles have higher shot count, r10, air ranger/wolf, rapid etc

    Don't forget to factor in cost of charging gear too

    the s410 and s510 are prety much identical except for few things, biggest being side lever over bolt action. I have been a powder burner hunter my whole life until I moved to UK and started on the air rifles... I was set on bolt action as it was similar, but after trying side lever I was hooked! so much quicker and smoother! give it a try! S510 all the way! or HW100 if you prefer pig ugly rifles ;)

    in a distant galaxy, far far away ....... actually
    all just about as good as each other - the best one will be the one which 'fits' you best - pick them all up and shoulder them - one will stand out above the rest.
    but i would also throw the bsa ultra into the mix - designed as the ultimate short karbine hunter

    In that case you only need look at an AA/CZ200 in .177.
    45 shots in the sweet spot, 90 secs or less to pump from 100 bar to 170 bar.
    More economical on air than a regulated gun.
    Not much over 6lbs in weight.
    Short and easy to shoot from a vehicle.
    Easy to service and maintain
    One of the most accurate barrels out there.

    And they don't suffer from the rainbow power curve an unregulated gun would.

    A regulator improves the economy of a gun so I fail to see how an out of the box S200 will be better?

    It's a good gun but isn't in the league of any other guns that have been mentioned in this thread.

    I'd go for the HW100KT as it's short, lightweight, super accurate and will give you 70 shots in 177. When I'm hunting I seldom get through more than 2 magazine's (28 shots).

    For me it would be out of the r10, huntsman or s510.
    The HW100 is a heavy gun imo.If i remember right with a scope and silencer its knocking on for 4.5kg. Might be wrong tho so dont take it as gospel
