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.

    Everything seems tight on there.

    The mounts go on the rail with like a finger grub screw, but it has a flathead slot aswel, and thats tight... Maybe its the mount.... :(

    hello, once you check rifle, scope, mounts, damadged pellets, try put in solid hold like a work mate but you will still get pellet flyers.

    Can you post a picture of the mounts? If it's the ones I'm thinking of they may not be up to the job.
    Regards,Stu.

    Brought the scope after the gun, what's the point of buying a brand new scope(£60) then having to spend £20 on mounts! Grrr

    I always put a piece of rubber tennis racket grip around the scope where the mounts clamp, creates a bit of friction, and stop metal rubbing on metal:)

    I've had 2 new nikkos in the last 12 months, but they came with mounts different to the ones you are describing. Had both sets on a tx200 with no movement at all.

    Sounds like the cheap screw wheel mounts...best advice is to bin em and buy some decent sportsmatch arrestor block mounts...no problems then..temps can alter zero, hence why many ft shooters check zero before every comp..but ditch the mounts first..there not suitable for recoil guns really

    Could you take it back to where you got it from? I had (And still have to be fair) the same issue. If you mention the mounts they might replace them with a sturdier set. I know how you feel though mate it's extremely frustrating.

    Unfortunately, that's what scope mounts cost - & then some, but it's not like they will wear out. Check out decent retailers like Uttings or JS . for a selection of decent units, I'm partial to Sportsmatch brand myself.

    It sounds like you just have some kind of thumbwheel securing your scope, that's more for Airsoft than airguns, if there is movement it probably isn't very obvious. Try giving the scope a couple of good yanks to one side & then shooting a group, then give it a couple of good tugs the other way & shoot another one & see if there is any effect.
