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.

    I have just bought a new scope for my MK3 and have been told that i may need lower mounts, i have Hawke (high i think) fitted now and want to know how do you measure them, ie from top of breach to bottom of curve etc.
    Also as the pics show there is approx 10mm gap between the scope objective lens and the gun, which would be fit better, low or medium?

    Has any one got something that would be suitable or is it a trip to dealers?

    cheers
    Kenny

    I would get some medium mounts mate as it will drop the scope down closer to the rifles barrel, low mounts may be no good.

    Remember your scope is AO and you will need to be able to turn it ok without it scuffing the barrel.

    Hawke medium mounts are 5mm lower than the higher ones i think? So that will drop it down ok.

    I had low mounts on my scorpion se and my scope was on the barrel so i got medium mounts and its now sitting nicely just above it.

    The hawke medium match mounts are good mounts and are about £15-18 new.

    Try a swap for your high mounts?

    Those look like Hawke high mounts. Many manufacturers produce mounts of similar height difference between each size - usually around 4-5mm.

    If you have 10mm clearance with the barrel meds should be fine; lows will probably be a bit too low (esp. if you need to fit 'scope caps etc). If you're looking at fixed mounts, I'd go for Sportsmatch over Hawke - better quality for similar money ;)

    I'd go for sportsmatch mounts mate. Good mounts at a decent price.
    BKL are nice but expensive and do the same job

    Sportmatch or bkl, not worth risking problems over a couple of £

    Recieved a set of Hawke Medium Match Mounts to see if i could reduce the gap between AO ring and barrel which was approx 10mm, changed them over and they are too low.:frusty:
