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.

    '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. 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.

    I don't know if many revolvers have blowback, but the majority are very good, ASG,UMAREX,WEBLEY to name a few have a google or use the search on the forum for reviews :thumb:

    Sorry meant revolvers or blowback as in the 1911's etc. Was just curious what people have found the most reliable, accurate etc

    You can’t go wrong with the well built, sturdy, accurate and economical ASG Schofield or Webley MKVI.

    Have a search through older posts here in the pistol section. You will find all you need. It is a pity we don't have a separate co2 section.

    Quite agree with you on this. Especially as we have a very strong showing within AGF.

    That is a very nice collection Andy,a lovely looking 715 is ir new!!

    I think you are absolutely spot on with the "man thing" my wife also thinks i am bonkers,to me some of the Pistols represent past history for good or bad,i get as much enjoyment of pulling them out of their locked steel cabinet{am not allowed to have them displayed,which is a small concession for actually having them in the house} cleaning & looking at them,aesthetics also play an important role in ownership, which is equally important in my Rifles as well,occasionally i will use them,either in the back garden or at my local range, i have them because i can, i don't smoke,nor do i drink, Airgun's are my vice.:thumb:

    I have an eclectic mix at the moment,at the beginning of 2019 i had to sell quite a few to fund repairs to my car & subsequent purchase of my HW100, i have previously owned: Makarov M2,Colt 1911 WW2 Special edition,Colt SAA, Sig's M17,226 & X5,Schofield Aging Black,Beretta M92,Walther CP88,H&K P30,out of all of the above,the one that i was sorry to see go was the 1911 WW2 Special Edition,there's something about the 1911 which i find quite alluring, again it goes back to the history,the 1911 must have been light years ahead of it's time,was revolutionary & a game changer when it was designed by Mr Browning over a century ago

    Cheers for the advice guys, what is the trigger weight like on the double action revolvers? Is it really heavy or lighter than you'd expect?

    Double action are always heavier. Always best to cock a DA pistol and then fire.

    Ok like the look of some of them, like the idea of rapid fire as well but want to be at least half way accurate. Will have to keep digging, c02 pistols must be the most diverse of all the airguns!

    I love that many of you are enthusiastic about these fun guns, but I'm in the process of going off my CO2 pistols due to the low power & poor cold weather performance, will keep a few...
    • Tanfoglio Race Gun for BBs
    • Walther CP88 (satin finish & wood grips, plus dovetail rail), non-blowback so it's economical on gas.
    • Maybe the Gamo PT-80, it's also economical and was a freebie (when licensing came in, here in Scotland) and came with seven mags.
    But I'll probably sell my boxed / as-new SIG X-Five & three mags at our club, sadly need the money.

    I like pistols to have some oomph and not to be so temperature-dependent, as CO2 annoyingly is. This is why 3-4 ft/lb Webley Tempests are so much fun, quick to cock, pretty accurate and you can really ring steel with them. It doesn't help that our club doesn't allow shooting BB pistols indoors, due to the resulting slip hazard downrange.

    Hence I'm considering shooting my Airsoft guns more for fun. Consider this, it may be lighter than the original, but my Robocop Auto-Nine (lengthened Beretta M93R) is awesome. Gas-operated and wind-dependent it may be, but select-fire (single-shot, three-shot bursts and full-auto) -plus I can see the shots grouping within a medium-sized Quality Street tin lid at nearly 50m against the grassy berm downrange!

    What I'd really I'd love is for all heavyweight replica pistols to have a QD connection in the butt and to run off regulated HPA. I'd be well into them all if they ran at 4-5 ftlbs, and could ring steel at 10-15m, rather than barely making neat holes in 6m targets.

    Your thoughts?
    Cheers. Russ

    Personally I don’t get the CO2 thing. I shot the real stuff in the 70’s and bb or pellet copies could never hold any interest for me. It’s 10m Olympic air pistol or nothing.

    But each to their own and enjoy your own thing guys :thumb:

    Each to their own I suppose and I would never down anyone’s choice of shooting fun. I miss the old days as well and make the best of ‘real’ firearms when I’m in the States and seldom miss any opportunity to range Glock and AR15. CO2 may be far off the mark but they are still great fun.
