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.

    Or seller in a wanted add, hi I can do that for you pm incoming regarding it.
    Or a normal sale, hi I want to buy your item
    If a manufacturer gets asked privately about a sale they should say to the prospective buyer please comment on my thread to adhere to forum rules.

  6. 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.

Advice Which Pard 007?

    I've got two scopes in regular use:

    Optisan EVX 3-12x44
    Hawke Vantage 3-9x40

    Which PARD 007 would suit them? I'll need to use it from about 12m through to 40m. Would I need any extra kit (apart from a more flexible neck - if some of the reviews are correct!)

    I'd also appreciate any feedback on how tough the things are. Anyone dropped one!?

    Thanks!

    Hi buddy. I've just got my 1st 007A and use it on my EVX and think its perfect. I've added a 10mm spacer to my butt pad and my eye alignment is fine .

    I've rolled the eyepiece rubber back as I can't get in with it.

    I got a great deal from Blackwood outdoors . Asked for best price for a oo7A and le032 rangefinder;).

    Best service(and price) I've had thoroughly recommended

    That's very reassuring. Did you get the 12mm or the 16mm one?

    I'm not sure whether the 16mm one is more for longer range work.

    Although I use an EVX same as yours, I've also read that most of the Hawke range are excellent with the Pard :thumb:

    That's great. Thanks for the info. An early Christmas present I think!

    I wondered if it's possible to use it as a spotting scope on the odd night walk too.

    12mm for airguns because of a lower base mag 16mm has a higher base mag so more suited to longer distances like firearm ranges

    Just received the NV007A.

    It's very, very clear. A bit of a narrow spot on it even with the IR bulb pushed in though.

    It's not working with my Optisan EVX 3-12 44i though!! Grainy and can't make anything out though it. Absolutely lovely through a Hawke Vantage.

    Any ideas?!?

    The coatings on the lenses of some scopes can cause problems with some NV add ons.
    They'll simply work well with some, not others.

    Weird. Mine's fairly new. Perhaps they added new coatings? I might try it with a separate IR laser illuminator - more IR might break through them :)

    Great with the Hawke though - just that it has front parallax rather than the side.

    Mines maybe 4yrs old:shrug: perhaps more IR will help. Having SF deffo makes it easy to focus so I hope you can find a solution:thumb:

    Thanks! No solution so far. Get a new scope I guess. It's great through the Hawke though. What a fab bit of kit. It's opened up a whole new world :)

    It's solved. It's also extremely embarrassing! In my defence I was being distracted when I was testing it.

    Ok.... it was....

    Scope flip-up lens cover was blocking the IR emitter. :facepalm::facepalm::facepalm:

    Is there a prize on here for the most stupid mistake made in a year?

    Young kids, not much sleep, rushing. Bet I'm not the first to have made that mistake though :) I've made the flip-up open to the side now....

    Awesome bit of kit the 007A. I wonder if there's a flip up cover that fits this the 007 scope adapter on the rear.
