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.

    Hi .
    Is the onboard IR adjustable on the 4.6x42 xt ?

    Just seems to be lighting a little lower than I need.

    Thanks

    I've got the bigger version Rob (6.5x50xt) and a quick stab at the on/off button not only switches the ir on but each subsequent stab cycles the ir through three levels of intensity indicated by one, two or three dots alongside the ir icon in the bottom left hand corner of the screen. There's no mechanical adjustment of the illuminator. Personally I don't bother with the onboard ir and use an old Tracer 400 ir torch which is good enough for ratting.

    Hi
    Yes I'm aware of the increasing of the IR brightness. For my uses, level 1 is fine. though I'll try increasing to see if that improves any.
    Its the positioning of the beam that the IR throws thats my issue. its appearing a touch low in the viewfinder.
    As you suggest, I may have to consider using an add on IR. I have one here but would have preferred not to start bolting things on and adding weight.

    Optics Warehouse had the Tracer 400 IR on sale a few weeks ago for I think was about £20 delivered which is a gift. Sure I paid something like £65 for mine 5 or so years ago.

    Hi could be it is optically centred for a longer range than you are using it at.
    A little high is good at close range as you can over illuminate the foreground

    They certainly did and no idea why I didn’t buy one at that price! Back up to 39.99 now.

    Does the tracer have a memory function, so when you turn it off and back on, it returns back to the same IR level that it was on before you switched it off?

    I already had one but couldn't resist buying another at that ridiculously low price offered a few weeks ago - probably still be in its box when I die. Both the ones I have switch on at the lowest output regardless of the level selected when they were switched off so no memory function. Bit annoying but doesn't really bother me that much.
