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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    '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.'

  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.

    I was looking for some diferant air pistols when I found one that looked interesting on air-rifles.eu log on and go to airpistols look for the Zoraki HP-01. Please let me know what you think of the gun and the price. They also give prices for posting to the uk I may just call my local RFD and see how I can go about getting one.

    You could - in theory - buy direct from the site.

    The Alecto is a Zoraki HP-01 but set to a UK legal maximum power - you would need to be sure that the maximum power had been set appropriately BEFORE importing it into the UK.

    If the gun had the mark for the German market would that be enough proof?

    Husky, Just buy a webley Alecto in the uk. By the time you have paid import duty, v.a.t. and customs fees the cost will be the same and without all the hastle.

    Agreed with the above to be honest. IF it gets an inspection, it will probably end up costing more than an Alecto by the time all the fees are added.
    But yet, rip off Britain at its best!

    the german limit for pistols is 3 fpe not 6 fpe
    and as has been said by the time you pay all the import fees you would be better off just buying one in the uk

    They are a Bulgarian company, inside the E.U. - So - No vat to pay, no import duty. As long as the goods themselves are legal to own the individual has a perfect right to import them.

    This is, after all, the whole point of the E.U.

    Thanks for the help I'm a bit weary about the power but the no VAT etc makes the CO2 guns look like a good bet even with the P+P added. Looking at the sight I get the feeling that they have some export experiance I also see that they have the H&N 4.5mm lead *** both plain and plated just the boys for the Baikal Makarov?. If I can get some spare cash I may try an order I'll let you know how I get on

    Thanks for all your help

    Tom
