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.

    So, nowt I haven't posted before but I had them all out together so thought a group shot or two was appropriate :p

    All rifles are full left-hand, pre-anti-tamper and have had the usual polishing and fettling. In a nutshell we have, top to bottom:

    1. 2005 parts bin special, .177; S400 Classic action fitted with MPR breech block / barrel assy, later-spec walnut thumbhole stock and Rowan setback brass trigger. Fitted with an Edgar Bros 6x44 'scope on low Sportsmatch pro-mounts (remember those? :D).

    2. 2005 S410 Carbine, .22. Fitted with later-spec walnut sporter stock and earlier (pre-safety) trigger blade. Fitted with an Armex mod adaptor, Weihrauch mod and Simmons Whitetail Classic 1.5-5x20 on fully adjustable B-square mounts.

    3. 2002 S410 Carbine, .177; original walnut sporter stock with Rowan setback brass trigger, later-type fill adaptor (minus T-piece), Cloverleaf mod adaptor, Weihrauch mod, Hawke Panorama 4-12x50AO 'scope on fully adjustable B-square mounts.


    Aside from their crappy exhaust valves (with associated continually falling muzzle energy) and lack of barrel support blank on the MPR-alike I'm very happy with all of them and consider them all keepers. They're all simple, well-designed, reliable, predictable, slick, consistant and accurate. I know them all inside out and pre-dating AT I can freely strip, clean, maintain and adjust them (within the law, obviously) without some d******d trying to prevent me from doing so. There's honestly nothing on the new market that I'd rather own :up: :)

    All these guns are now a bit different, but images updated for completeness in light of Photobucket's treachery..

    Im really going to have to get myself another little WTC.

    Each time ive had to give up air rifles i sell the lot.

    Come back a year or soo later, try a load of the latest scope offerings then end up back with a WTC. Ive had 5 or 6 of them now, i should really just keep one in the back of the wardrobe for when i get the bug again.
