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.

    A rule i was told is half to 3 3rds of the rrp so given age and price new at £180ish maybe 90 to 100 quid i might be very wrong but its a start

    The 3 barrel kit is worth much more than that i think. The second hand S&W with 6" barrel would be about £120 at a reasonable price but i believe the older glossy models demand a slight premium and also the extra barrels for a complete set demand a higher premium. I would guess at around £200-£250 but someone with a lot more knowledge on the subject than me will be along shortly with further advice :)

    Yes, without knowing the influence for your comment it feels like myself and previous post are being warned not to make an offer with no indication that one was going to be made. I can't speak for the previous poster but i was just trying to assist the op in finding a price. I'm not looking for an argument just clarification

    Well you any anyone else are meant to take it as a warning not to make a offer.
    In the interests of clarity you and all visible posts on this thread are fine and nobody is in trouble.

    Just remember mods do not have to justify themselfs, we do things for a reason wether or not you can see or are aware of that reason is irrelevant.
    But we certainly do not go looking for arguments.

    Hi Bob & All, Thanks for the replies however most of them are for the wrong reason ! I will withdraw it from this forum, & put up for sale elsewhere ( Whenever I get around to it )
    I have 40 guns & Spares or so to sell, I did not think it this hard, Looks like an overpriced guess & A gun Forum
    The " Shiny " S&W have not been made for about 8 years, They are the first, Best engineered & most collected of all 586,s & Moreso than the 686 ( With the odd mag ) with a durable finish,
    The 4" & 6" Barrels & shrouds are still available but not in shiny, The 8" Barrels, have not been available for longer,

    I sold a shiny 586 about 8 years ago, Almost in as good condition , I got £80 for the 8" Barrel, £55 for the 4" & sold the gun with the 6" for £140, If prices have gone up or down, I do not know ?

    I expected a valuation ( Though I am out of touch on prices now & Thats why I asked ) of around £250-£300 on the rarity & condition of it,
    Alas, I will sell it on in the future,
    The other guns for sale I will just guess a price with O.N.O

    Thanks for replying, Ged.

    They were never cheap ! These below never had the 8" Barrel.

    Hi Gedfinn,

    I did put a value of £200-£250 but did say that my knowledge was not the best. You might have better luck getting a valuation on Umarex Boys Club which is a pistol dedicated forum to be honest. Good luck
