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.

    Hi, I did a refurb on this rifle a while back and forgot to post a few up to date pic's so here it is, and ive put about 2000 rnd's through the rifle and im pretty happy with it so far, only got a cheapish scope but is accurate enough to get 5 rnd groups under the old pound coin at 20 metre's.

    so ok for a 30 year old phut gun.

    ive made the moderator on my little lathe, but its only a dummy as no baffles!!, I put on an NATO Green SLR sling on it which helps no end when firing standing unsupported, I made the sling loops from some rod but they were only quick ones to be made again after, but cant stop firing it!

    In the next few months im going to strip it again, and fit a front spring guide which I will turn up on the lathe, bit of trial and error but that's the fun of it for me, try and take the twang out the action a bit.

    I may give the stock a nice camo paint job, and look at getting a bipod ( bought a crap one from ebay and sent it right back ), I use a piece of cam net with a matt black base and a little bit of matt brown and green, looks quite good.

    so that's it really, im picking up a new motorbike on Saturday, the dippy on said bike was going to be both my Vulcan and the jackal......but a mad few weeks on selling stuff on ebay has saved the day, and I can have both now:):):up:

    Gasman, you know the Ar7 in the pics, how accurate are they?, just with the barrel being so short.

    Gasman what type of scope is on the last rifle in the second picture? The front bobble looks strange!

    Nice job a lathe comes in handy hey wish I had one.
    i have a couple of these nice action pretty accurate but I just hated the noise from the plastic stock when it was shot.
    Think both mine are a a models but beautifully finished .
    I did tune it years ago but think it may have benefitted from more polishing in the compression area to aid the o ring seal.
    they do look good though def an 80s thing.
    I like the paratrooper too good fun those in repeater .

    I love the old AA sidelevers :up:

    Mine..

    View attachment 104395 View attachment 104396 View attachment 104397

    The shorty (AR7??) has a Theoben gas ram in but I think a spring is missing in the trigger as it doesn't engage on cocking, it has to be pushed forwards!! ;)


    EDIT- I still have the parts for the Khamsin bagged up somewhere!! :p


    John :)

    I have packed the hollow stock with polystyrene packing chips to reduce the noise/absorb recoil and it works well.Also read that some have used builders foam.

    So is it a standard-ish side lever cocking rifle in an assault rifle lookin stock!? Ah!

    It looks great though. I'd have one and I'd probably fill the stock with expanding foam to reduce any hollow sounds etc.

    Are there any other guns like these, with fancy bodies/stocks?

    Hi Samon
    These rifles were only popular back in the 80's, the military styling was a love or hate it thing.
    to be fair the guns are still doing the job after all these years and are good fun to shoot, I find mine pretty accurate too.
