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.

    '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.

    I think if BSA made a springer here in the UK, and it functioned it would be a seller. Going back to all the talk in that other thread about AA making a break barrel rifle, I wonder if they should make a break barrel seeing as AA have the underlever guns? Or would they want a fix barrel rifle and so have to go under lever. I know cosmetically many prefer underlevers but I like sidelevers not that I have owned one yet.

    It's a difficult question to answer as its really down to personal preference. I prefer the underlevers myself. I also own a gamo shadow breakbrarrel and have owned many others over the past years. I used to own an AA Bora which was a side lever. The action was fine. I also use to own a Webley Tracker Deluxe. I'm now down to my Goldstar and Gamo. I'm thinking of adding a Theoben Evoution as my third rigle at some stage. My son recently purchased a superbly conditioned Webley Exclipse MK2 which has been Venom Tuned. It's a joy to shoot and the tap loading system isn't as bad or finicky as mentioned by others.

    The Goldstar and Exclipse are from that period when I had stopped airgunning though I will still around shooting. I still have my Omega (in .22) and Airsporter Stutzen (in .177) as I don't tend to get rid of stuff and they just live in a cabinet with the shotguns. The former really is in the wrong calibre though it shoots very well, and the latter has always been too small for me even when I was 15 (and always seems fragile). So I don't own a full size serious target springer .177 at the moment; for me it is a future thing though I sort of know what I want now (this forum should come with a 'wealth warning'). And though I have no use for one the Diana 56 TH is something I adore but it's just too much of everything..............

    Yeah. I kinda know what you mean. I did have a Hiatus from airgunning for a few years simply because I had no where to shoot. I hung onto a few guns back then and sold them on a bit later. The one I regret selling the most was my Airmasters HW77k with the walnut thumbhole stock. It was a beauty. I went various airguns throughout the years trying to find my ideal dream rifle. I'm not a PCP person and certainly not a C02 rifle man either. I think my GOLDSTAR fits the bill for me right now although I do plan to get a Theoben Springer next.

    This is going to sound weird but we tend to see rifles as something beyond a tool sort of approaching a pet or a car.

    I own a PCP because I wanted to something to mimic rimfire. I am beginning to see springers as something more akin to archery and crossbows with the manual element from charging to the holding sensitivity. I suppose it is the difference between sailing and motor boats. Back in my teens I didn't want a Daystate I wanted a Theoben; I didn't 'understand' the former.
