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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.

    Morning, about 10 years ago when I got my 97 k my Dad said he could do with an airgun to deal with a rat problem. A mate of mine said he had one he wasn't using and I could buy it for £40 with scope and I must say it was in great condition:) and my dad was very happy with it and dealt with his rat problem.

    Fast forward 10 years ! My dad now uses poison and the poor b20 has been a bit neglected and left in a sling in a built in wardrobe in a bungalow with a small damp problem :(
    It still cocks and shoots a good as when he first got it , but has some surface rust :(

    Now I've done some searches and I'm a bit confused :confused: there seems to be 2 b20's and I'm not sure which one it is :confused:

    Will update with pics when I get it later :) but would like to know a bit more about them and any identifying marks to look for so I can tell what it is .

    Thanks
    Alex

    ( only downside is he's asked if I can leave my new ratcacher there just in case ! Cheeky booger ! Not seen a rat there for years:eek: He just wants to play :D)

    If it says Made in China on it you know it will be the Chinese clone of the HW95!

    Yes, especially as that one should have the Rekord trigger copy on it, think of it as an HW95 Foo Yung and you will be about there!

    Hi Alex, great rifles and £40 was a very good price..!

    I have one in .22 and it does all want consistantly out to 30 yards (possibly more in better hands). Mine was tuned by Lyn Lewington to run at it's silky smooth best and I chopped the barrel by 4" and fitted a silencer which ended up not really necessary. They usually come with a barrel weight to counteract any flip. Mine was solely used for rabbits and done me proud, then I got the AA 400 pcp...:up:

    These were sold under the AGS badge, when AGS were part of the Webley group, well worth restoring, I believe the parts are interchangable with a Hw85/95, which is nice.

    Same parts as the SMK XS20 too and they're widely available from members on the UKChineseAirgunForum with strip down guides and a wealth of info and experience. Mine has a fabulous Rekord type two stage adjustable trigger that feels as good as the one on an HW95. Oddly though, mine records 11.4ftlb on heavy(ish) 15.9gr RWS Superfields and the lighter 14.3gr Falcon Accuracy Plus pellets but only 10.4ftlbs on the widely regarded and used midweight Superdomes. Mine prefered the Falcons on the limited varieties I tried and fly fast and true with good stopping power for a hollow lead pellet, not so good after 30 yards though..!

    I could never sell my B20, I grab the .177 pcp now 90% of the time but the springer really took advantage of dispatching Magpies decending on a pheasant feeder only 20 yards away from a hide a month or so back, the perfect tool for the job as long as I could get the next pellet in quick enough..!!

    It's of an age that had it been looked after better, it may have been worth something, but as it's not been looked after, send it to me, you know it makes sense. LOL ; )
