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.

    they reckon 30-40 shots per charge so far I have not let pressure drop below 150, so have not really counted the shots but it shoots really well and accurate to 15 yds that is all the most distance I can get in my garden safely but will be testing later at my local rifle club PS I have only recently started air gun shooting ay the ripe old age of 75 ?? I paid with credit card and sent a copy of my driving licence by e-mail attachment and as stated in my previous post I did not have any problems at all and yes they state on their web site UK delivery on orders is 20 euros but if you spend over 300 euros its free and the cost of the Crosman Marauder pistol carbine is 411euros which is about £342.00 compare that to a gun shop in the the UK selling at £500.00

    View attachment 94136 View attachment 94137 View attachment 94138 View attachment 94139 View attachment 94140 These are the pictures of Crosman marauder pistol/carbine purchased from www.rojal.si in Slovania as you can see the stock is the basic as fitted to 2240 and crosman ratcatcher so at the moment have just fitted some foam and tape to make it more comfortable on cheek rest maybe at a later date will find some one who can make a more suitable wood stock I know you can get one in the USA is there some one in the UK ??

    contact ian aka bl4derr1 as the plastic stock is the std ratcatcher one or just add a riser like i did to this onethe stock is the king ratty version but this is as easy to do on your version a grubscrew can be fitted underneath so it presses on the base of the trigger unit eliminates the up and down play these stocks sufferped

    i am a big fan of the marauder carbine,or p-rod as it is known in the good old us of a
    have had mine for several years and its a great little short range ratter
    in my experience its best not to fill over 2500 psi and not let the pressure drop below 1200 psi
    that should give you at least 40 shots in the 9.5-11.5 fpe range
    these guns do have faults
    main one being
    steep power curve over a low shot count,really needs a reg to tame the curve
    finish is typical crosman and you can see it in the finish that it is crosman
    dont be fooled this is not a benjamin but a re badged crosman
    crummy plastic stock and fore grip are quite frankly pants
    but taking into account the faults as long as you dont pay silly money for one they are great(have seen some uk stockists selling for £600:eek:)
    i second what ped has said,if you want a reliable and decent uk stock maker bl4de on this forum is your man
    this mine when i first got it
    [​IMG]
    bl4de made this stock for mine many moons ago and was a quality piece of workmanship
    [​IMG]
    i now have a steve corcoran stock on mine but it took many many months to arrive from the us

    thats nice andy i've a corcoran on my hipac'd 2250 and they are nice
    apparrently the bstayley mod overcomes the steep curve but i'd also look at fitting a lighter hammer and 1377 spring which is what i've used on discovery and hipac builds these guns are designed to run higher power than the uk and sometimes the way they bring the power down to our limits isn't as balanced as it could be
    if you wanted a reg i think the AoA discovery reg and the alteros ones fit and for more shots you can fit lloyd sykes double tube setup
