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 think I might have gotten crosmanitis and am looking for a pistol
    that I can customize and put my own touch on it.

    Which platform would you pick 1377 or 2240? and why? At first I
    was going to go with the 1377 so I didn't need to keep buying co2
    but after looking a bit on the net I noticed some cool looking 2240's
    as well. Not sure now which I should get.

    Just want something to customize and plink with in the back garden.

    I pimped out a 2240, real money pit! Lol

    They are nice guns though, real fun to trick out and always shot well. Bucket loads of bits out there for 22xx models as well, most fit on the 1377 though.

    Once my 2240 build was complete, I was annoyed with co2. Expensive, temperamental and generally naff on anything but multi shot plinker pistols. Then I really wanted the 1377! I like the idea of air instead of co2, even of you have to pump pump pump!

    I got busy at the time though and sold everything, if I were to venture back into the crosman world, it would be a 1377 or2250 king ratty and turn it to hpa!

    kent,
    i have a 1377, and like it loads, accurate good power and variable so plinking
    silently if needed ideal for me, and plenty of modding possibilities. and no
    extra cost for gas

    the buying of co2 gas is what really put me off the 2240, otherwise I like both
    platforms a lot. I know the first mod I defiantly want to get is the steel breach
    so I can add some sort of optics. Might need the shoulder stock too to help
    my accuracy.

    If you want the the thump of a 2240 without buying Co2 you could consider a 1322.

    Just buy one of each you will end up doing it anyway.

    Me I prefer the 2240, pumping is too much hassle.

    Hi there the 1377 is a lovely crosman pistol, only problem is its a multi pump and yr arms do tend to ache after a while. On the other hand the 2240 is co2 with is ideal for those who dont like multi pumps. They are both great pistols in their own right. Whatever you choose you wont be disappointed. :)

    Had the king rat & 1377, sent for a Backpacker tube from the US, to make sure it would be UK legal, shoots great, used the Raty barrel & breach, so it is a 22, shoots at just under 11 ftlbs, and only weighs in at just over 4ibs. ENJOYED THE PROJECT, had some great advice from this forum. Atb, Bob. PS. If you look at my post history, you can follow the build, and all the good advice I received from forum members.

    We have the backpacker here in .22 but I was going to maybe take a .177 and add a longer barrel
    from a crossman 760 rifle. Will have to get some barrel bands but will work.

    When I did my gun, I put a 24 inch rabbit stopper barrel on it to start with, but the accuracy was crap, ended up using the 14 inch, and no problems, spot on. Hope you have more success with the long barrel. Atb, Bob. PS. Had to google Spartanburg, South Carolina, nice. Good to hear from you.

    That's just the thing. I ran the numbers and if I customize it myself it's going to cost more
    than if I just went out and purchased a rifle from a shop. But, this way I can put my own
    personal touch on it. I still want to build my own
