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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    Thank . i live in the Cotwolds and don't have my equilibrium buggered about by some Cornish gun dealers, however if we're talking silly prices how about buying my rusty old Relum Tornado for £300. Only joking, you can have it for 50. You can decide if that's pence or pounds.:lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

    I just gave an Airsporter S to my cousin, in very good condition too... I could have made a good few beer tokens selling it on that site ;)

    Having read the advert I decided to re-appraise the value of my Mark II Meteor. It's unique, after all it's the only Meteor I have ever shot, so there is no other like it in the world. With a beech stock (real wood) and a BSA action (real steel) you can have it for £750. Any takers? ;)

    P.S. Mods. This is not a for sale advert. Just testing the water before I put it to auction with a £1k reserve price.:D

    Presumably the price is due to its condition. It's listed as "mint", so presumably never fired.

    If a dealer is using MINT in its true context it means" indistinguishable from new with all packaging and paperwork as provided new"
    This of course does add a lot to the price.

    Mint or not,no Airsporter is worth £450 and I'm a bit of an Airsporter fan.You'd have to be bloody daft to pay that sought of money for one

    Absolutely.. I'd reckon half that if you're very lucky; more like £200 tops IMO.

    Just had a look on Gstar; there are a lot of late models (Mk3-6) on there for apparently silly money (£150-200+) nobody actually pays this much for them do they?

    A few have passed through my hands for £70-£80 (and weren't quick to shift at that).. a collector mate reckons they're hard to shift at more than £60 or £70.. are we missing a trick? :p

    I've seen mint condition Stutzens go for £300 at the top. That's mental.

    Probably something to do with the fact that he's asking 2-3 times market value for them :p

    It isn't a joke price.The value is what someone willpay for it - it only takes one buyer. Don't juge everyone by your own buying habits. It depends on what work has been done to the individual rifles before putting them up for sale too. If you don't like the price, don't buy it, but that doesn't make it a joke. Maybe optimistic, but that is his privilidge. There are people who will willingly pay top price for a good example, of anything. How on earth can you tell me paintings are worth 10s of millions......The Scream at £74,000,000, for instance.

    There are people out there for whom that money is not even pocket money. A client I had out stalking last year had earned over 300 million by June of the year. For him, the cost of his time to make another phone call would be more than the price of the rifle. Footballers have other hobbies too.....why would someone like Wayne Rooney worry about the odd £200? They just buy it.

    True, but that doesn't make it any more palatable...
