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.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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.

    Differences also depend if Gun's are brought in via a UK Distributor or Via a European Distributor

    As No Gun Warrenty is Valid in UK unless sold via a UK Distributer - As they are the ones that cover Warrenty

    No known Gun product has a World wide Warrenty -

    Also Sizes of Dealers matters - better turn over better deals - Even retailers have to pay Handling / Carriage costs on Trade orders
    Under a certian amount

    Why not spread your net countrywide to get the best possible deal and have the gun(s) delivered to the RFD closest to you ?

    I think I would need to be saving several hundreds of pounds not to have the convenience of going into the shop and getting it put on your ticket.
    Then being able to return it to the shop if there were a problem. No rfd transfers no posting your ticket off to the distant gun shop ect.
    Cheers Andy

    Quite agree with you Andy about the convenience of buying from your local RFD, but just looking at the differences in the prices quoted by the OP means that he could save £730 on the four rifles quoted. Personally this would more than make up for any inconvenience regarding RFTs and any future problems with a gun that, at the end of the day, should also be covered by a warranty valid in the UK regardless of where the gun was originally bought.

    hello, it is most likely i shall try to find a RFD within a reasonable distance when i come to purchase as i mentioned i will look at the lowest price around the UK and see if they can match or be as near price, there is nothing more frustrating than having to return when bought and have posted and your right on the ticket and shotty permit. cheers

    Yes always worth checking the prices around the UK even if you don fancy buying at distance. I think it was Harry Brown who was saying the other day his local RFD had second hand SX3s on sale for more than the new price! Some shops like to charge!
    Cheers Andy

    Worth Checking out Essex Gun's for Shotguns and Fire Arms

    As known for good prices - Due to large turn over - Well worth a trip

    There is a larger mark up on Shotguns and Fire Arms
