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.

    Are you sure you never saw the $750 price tag on network 54 ?

    I think it will hit the shops at a slight discount, same as the LGV did.

    There hit the shops at £525 : O

    Changed my post, hoping FWB didn't see the original price I posted up, wouldn't like to give them ideas of grandeur.

    But as you've copyed and repled my post, we're fooked. lol

    And we haven't even started with the HW-200, or is it the TX-97....I mean the Walther LGU ;)

    I suspect more will be revealed after the IWA show :)

    Trade price of the new FWB Model Sport will be around 380-400€ (315-340 quid). Direct information of a FWB rep at IWA. More information coming soon.

    Here in the UK we tend not to enjoy an 'exchange rate equivalent' retail price. Normally it's around a pound per dollar or thereabouts :(

    All FWB needed to do was resurrect the 124 and 127, iron out a couple of things and have them made to a high standard.

    Job done.

    Winning products right from the off.

    Low weight, excellent manners, easy to work on and tune, what's not to like ?

    Tbh as much as I respect the original Sport range for what they brought to the table when released, their game would have to be raised to give a competitive product today - the triggers are crude, the safeties unreliable, the barrel lock-up substandard and inadiquate. In addition the pistons are heavy and the bores a bit too large for the UK market.

    They're still nice, largely well-made collectors guns that were ahead of their time, but things have changed since they were introduced..

    I'm certainly intrigued to see more about the new one (the release of which came as a complete surprise) however I'm not holding out a lot of hope as every springer on the market has some significant flaw or other.. it would surprise me if this rifle was any different.

    Will certainly be interested to handle one, though :)

    Triggers would be one of the things I mentioned might do well to be 'ironed out' :)
