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.

    Thank you.

    Hi Murphy,hi Custom,thanks for your replies.
    The gun in question wasn't a mill replica it looked just like a Parker Hale .308 only with air cartridges. A real booty!
    I seem to remember it fully ejected the spent cart's,which isn't handy!
    Its a real shame as my mate really abused it and f****d it up:(.
    I'm going to have a rummage through my old airgun mags. It's in there somewhere!!
    Thanks.

    Sussed(maybe)

    Hi,I think I've found it, no pics though.
    Had to go back to AGW 1987. Its called a Saxby&Palmer Herald.
    Can you belive that there's not one mention of it anywhere on the Web!!?
    I must find a pic to verify,anyone know for sure??
