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.

Asg X9 Classic (new Gun Day-ish)

    I've been after a Beretta for a good while to fill a hole in my collection, after all you can't have a handgun collection with out having at least one gun from the World's oldest gun maker. I've never hidden the fact that I'm not keen on the Umarex Beretta 92fs, the lack of blowback, the lack of a full size drop out magazine etc. etc. has put me off ever owning one. So I was looking for a secondhand ASG X9 for a while and finally managed to track one about a week or so ago.

    Beretta M9 - 1.jpg

    The seller was clearing out his complete collection (and still is afaik) on Gun Trader, got it very cheaply along with the original receipt (dated July 2019) and it came to me in perfect condition. So checked it out, chronographed it, did some shooting and then happily ordered myself a set of Turkish walnut grips for it......

    Here's a couple of pictures of the grips.....

    Beretta M9 - 6.jpg

    It's a lovely gun, feels great in the hand, accuracy is perfect for tin can plinking but the shot count is pretty low as I'm only getting 45 (3 x 15 round mags) whereas I get 60 shots out of my Taurus PT-92 (GSG-92) which is an almost identical gun.
    I believe that this one was originally made by KJ Works out of Taiwan rather than KWC and the fit & finish is definitely superior to any KWC finish that I've ever seen too.
    The trigger is super light and the whole action is pretty slick, the gun is not as heavy as my Taurus but only by a slight amount and only really noticeable when you have them both in your hands.
    Overall, very happy with the gun, not anywhere near as accurate as my Taurus but in truth the Taurus is pinpoint accurate and has quite a punch to match it's accuracy. I'm very happy to finally have a Beretta in my collection, would I recommend it ? Yes, if you're looking for a bb firing blowback Beretta with a full size drop out magazine and lock back on last shot, then this is definitely the gun for you :)

    The grips were purchased from AliExpress for about £16 c/w free delivery, they actually are made in Turkey and are shipped directly from there. I can't recommend the seller enough, great product, cheap price and fast delivery. If anyone needs anymore info about the grips just ask and I'll PM the details across.

    Those grips look excellent, did they require much fitting.

    No, none at all. The ASG version has identical grips to the real steel version (Beretta M9), unscrewed the old ones and popped these straight on, job done. It's one of the reason that I went for this version, I knew that I wanted to change the grips.

    I've got an X9 Classic, and I love it.

    Closest thing I could find to the 92S I had in the 80s.
