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.

  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. No longer allowed 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- We now do not allow political and religion threads anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section) unless Airgun related and they must be put in the Airgun related politics section..

    Staff will not move posts for you if you put it in the wrong section – it will simply be deleted. You will then have to type it all out again and put it in the right place, so heed this warning.

    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.

    There were many more .22 cal Airsporters manufactured than the smaller cal rifle (.177)
    So the .177 rifle will command a better price.

    I have bought and sold superb condition Mk 1's in .22 cal with excellent bluing and etching for around £200-£240

    The .177 BSA Clubs were the first to be manufactured (1947) followed by the .177 Airsporter Club and the .22 Airsporter Mk1.
    Early ones are recognisable by serial number prefix and the duck bill catch on loading lever (a nice touch)

    The Clubs look like the Airsporter but were a smaller rifle.
    The .177 Mk1 Airsporter Club and the .22 Mk1's were same length and more powerful

    I have seen £400 change hands several years ago for a mintish Club with perfect etching.

    Whoever's asking £675 is an optimist to say the least or he/she thinks we're all a bunch of suckers :D

    Hi,
    I've got a 1970s airsporter, had it about 20yrs and recently got it out to use and the piston is ceased, I've stripped the gun down and can't get the piston out, do you know how i can get it out or know of anyone that could help me,
    Thanks, Paul

    I use Beaufix thinners from Lidl, pour it down the transfer port and leave it for an hour or so, keep checking and adding a bit as the level drops. The reason that it is stuck is because the buffer washer on the piston will have deteriorated and broken up. Just persevere till you can pull it out. Replacement washer and seals are readily available and quite easy to fit. If it still refuses to come out I will send you a picture of an easy to make puller that may help.

    It's very tatty, but appears to kick a punch OK and I have had Rats with it in the past..
    Is it of any value folks??
    Excuse the bad picture, IF I can load it on here...

    Looks like a Mk6, made 77-83.

    I presume you don’t have the original iron sights?

    If so, and tatty means tatty, maybe £50-60?

    Hi Geezer, many thanks for your comments.
    No iron sights no, just as it is.
    I may just put it on the For Sale section, sadly it's not used nowadays, got this 'itching' for pcp now......

    Cool. If your definition of tatty is, er, less tatty than mine, it may make a tenner or two more.
