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.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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.

Question .25 Artemis P15 Valuation

    Not sure on this one, so here goes:

    In a cruel twist of fate I ended up with three P15's, one in .22 and two in .25

    One of my .25's is pushing 40+ FPE with JSB King pellets, and it's staggering on quarry.

    Then there's this one, which was originally bought new last summer. It just sits unused.

    There is a small mark in the stock half way up the pistol grip:

    [​IMG]

    Another small scratch at the front of the stock:

    [​IMG]

    A tiny, faint blemish (I think just to the laquer) just in front and to the left of the trigger:

    [​IMG]

    Condition is very good overall.

    Notes:

    After-market adjustable butt-pad and cocking lever handle are fitted. Original butt-pad and side plate is available with the rifle too.

    Baffles have been removed from the moderator (will come with the gun) since they are pants and it's quiet without them installed.

    I have re-crowned the barrel due to shonky factory finish. One of the scope rail grub screws has stripped - I was going to tap a slightly larger diameter screw or helicoil it, but it's been sat gathering dust for months now and I can't see me getting to it any time soon.

    I ran a mag of pellets through it this afternoon with the rifle clamped in a padded vice and all shots made a single hole group barely larger than the .25 pellet itself.

    I also ran a few shots through the chrono this afternoon using 25.39gr JSB King pellets and at roughly 175 bar I got:

    457 fps for 11.79 FPE
    452 fps for 11.52 FPE
    455 fps for 11.71 FPE
    456 fps for 11.75 FPE
    451 fps for 11.48 FPE
    452 fps for 11.53 FPE

    Comes with the spares, box, paperwork etc that you would get with the new gun. I think I have both mags (will check) but it definitely has one, and I also have the single shot tray.

    A mate of mine is after the FAC .25 P15 after having tried it on rabbits, and I think I will probably sell the sub 12 .22 as well, which has been on long term loan with another friend. They were originally bought with a very specific shoot in mind but I've binned that particular permission and almost all of my clearance shooting is with the FAC Rapid and .22lr, or the .223 if I need to reach further out. I just can't see me using these at all.

    The P15 is an easy/simple rifle to work on/with and they have a ton of scope for modification if that's what honks your hooter.

    Thoughts ?

    They're £500 new in most places so £300-£350! People are always asking about the 25 P15's on the Artemis FB group so they do sell well.

    Thanks for the feedback folks.

    I'm not happy about that rear scope mount screw being stripped (it was like that from the factory) so I think I will tap and new on in and then maybe advertise for sale once that's sorted. There are two on each end of the mount and I've never seen any shift in POI or zero, but it has to be right.

    I don't do FB and I have no intentions of starting any time...

    Hi mate good to see you posting on here, you've been missed

    I can vouch for the accuracy and performance of the .22 P15

    I used it exclusively for a period of time for both hunting and HFT.

    It was a joy to use in the field and it accounted for a few rabbits when put to the test.

    I found it gave great results out to 45yrds with FTT and I felt no need to test any other pellets.

    I was very impressed by the P15, its improved shot count after you tweaked it, accuracy, compactness, all make it a great hunter.

    I didn't do to bad in HFT with it either, I think if it was given a adjustable but paid and a hamster It would be interesting to see how I got on with it.

    Great guns if they fit your shooting requirements

    I only do FB for a few military groups and shooting groups, the P15 group being one of them if you wanted to explore that Avenue

    Id agree that two thirds of cost new Barry would sound reasonable.

    Good to see you about mate.......enjoyed your postings :thumb:
