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.

  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.

    carbine is shorter and you will get less shots but since your hunting it shouldn't matter,you can mail AA with the SN and they should tell you the age,the production date of the cylinder is on the side of the cylinder too.

    hello, carbine short barrel, classic standard, there is a date of manufacture on the action above trigger near tube end, you might need a magnify glass, are you talking new or s/h? most new are about £600 to £650, plus scope £? s/h about £350 gc/£450vgc, i have mine at £450 with a new hawke scope (£100) with fill adapter, its 2009 bought in 2010, yet some think to much money!!!

    I think the first two digits on the serial number is for the year of manufacture, I bought mine new a month ago and it starts with 13 so must have been manufactured last year. I have the full length (standard) version of the 400, it has more shots per charge but for hunting I think you be best going for the carbine unless you have loads of rabbits on your perm.

    If the gun is in good order, then yes, thats a decent deal.

    As long as the barrel aint bent I'd buy it as theres nowt in there that can't be fixed very easily!

    Great guns to work on mate.:up::up::up:

    Is there a way to test if the barrel is bent or is it just a case of keen eye

    Use a straight edge (rulers aren't always straight)

    Best way is to remove it from the gun and roll it across a table

    That's a good price if all ok, I would say £400-450 depending if standard stock and simple scope, little more if decent scope and in excellent condition.

    I had a full length superlite and although it was a very good rifle it did feel aBit long and clumsy so if I ever get another it would be carbine and I'd suffer the shot count atb
