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.'

  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.

    Hi All,
    I know a little local lad who's really into airguns, he originally had a little plastic SMK thing, I'd fix it for free, but it was poor to say the least, so I gave him my lads old HW25.

    The thing is he's beating most of the adults down his local club already but could do with something a little better.

    His Dad certainly hasn't got enough money to stump up for a decent gun so I thought it'd be a great forum project to sort him out a nice little HW99.

    Foxy @foxtrott has a cylinder, back block and few other pieces, I'll obviously be doing the work and fitting a TBT kit to it. I'm sure Mikey @mikeyhall1 being will try and mump a few bits with his immensely skilful scrounging skills. I also understand Steve @HW100Tuning has a spare Rekord trigger which he doesn't know he's going to give me yet!

    So I'm after any HW99 spares or compatible bits you might have, I'm happy to lay a reasonable price for them.

    Many thanks

    BM

    I've got a few springers that I could probably donate if it would help- mostly BSA I think, but there may be some others there. If its any use let em know, and I'll go through and see what I've got.
    Failing that, fora 99 I've got a pretty much new stock, and i THINK a 177 barrel, but need to check. Probably some other bits and pieces but it depends what I can find. Yours if they can help at all :)
    I can also have a word with my RFD if theres anything that doesnt turn up, he's into helping people out and can usually find something - a lot of the time he is like me and happy to get a bit of spare room.

    I have an Enfield 3-9 scope doing nothing at my house.

    Not sure of it is robust enough for springers and it's pretty basic (mil dot) but if it's useful let me know.

    I think I have the original spring, guides and washers at home mate but not much use if your planning a TBT set. your welcome to them though, I’ll check when I’m home.
    I may also muster up a cheapish scope and a bag :thumb:

    I'll certainly have a look through my spares but think I'm pretty much cleaned out of HW parts.

    I do however have a choice of a couple of scopes I'm happy to donate if needed.

    BSA essential 3-9x50 (30mm tube) mil dot ret
    Or
    Hawke HD 3-9x50 duplex

    Let me know if you want either @Blackmax
