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.

  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.

    As you have discovered parts are hard to come by. The top slide and valves have been troublesome on these pistols and so all those parts have gone.
    Tbh it is probably not worth fixing even if the parts were available. Sorry , but that is how it is.
    Regards,
    Pete.

    Hi mate,

    Firstly spares for these are pretty easy to come by via donor pistols, which come up pretty regularly and cheaply.

    Personally I collect the Anics pistols and have three Skifs of various types. Quality control is a bit variable but despite what people will tell you get a good one they're bl**dy fantastic and great fun.

    There are a few areas that tend to let them down, so for a start, slide aside, what's wrong with your pistol?

    Hi mate,

    i thought about donor pistols, i may keep my eye out for one...

    okay slide aside, Ive got the dreaded C02 leak when inserting the cartridge, and im missing the hammer and a few springs (shouldnt be too hard to 'acqurie') and i think thats it.

    is the really sensitive trigger pull one of the flaws you speak of? ;) ;)

    The sensitive trigger has been exaggerated no end, in reality it's normally down to a defective magazine.

    Honestly if there's that much wrong with it it'd probably be easier to start again from scratch and use the one you've got for back up.

    Skifs usually go for around the £100 mark in reasonable nick, although should you decide to carry on with the pistol let me know which springs you're after.

    You could try Nick & Magic Nine Designs he's done a lot of work on these pistols, and may have some spares, ...mike...

    Thanks a bunch! I'm in talks with Nick now, however he has stated he doesn't have much in the way of parts anymore so let's just hope...
