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.

    Tough choice Jonathan, either way you will enjoy the Mak.
    Out of interest what are the UK prices at the moment? I will not tell the wife.;)
    I paid 115 quid for my 99 Mak about 4/5 years ago. The dealer still tries to buy it back. :D

    Seems a bit steep, but I am out of touch with UK prices. :eek:
    Hipocrite that I am :D, my air arms and daystate rifles owe me over 2000 quid. Sorry no pound sign on my cyrillic keyboard. I have to improvise.:facepalm:

    I have just looked on the Bulgarian and Russian sites latest prices are about 135 quid for a new version. So UK prices you quote are not that far away.

    I think for the feeling of handling something that feels like the real thing and shares many of the same parts, it’s worth every penny. I’ve got a Gamo PT85 and although it’s great fun, it still feels like a plastic toy. I just hope it does actually live up to my expectations when I collect it (I’m sure it will)

    I have never handled a newer model but they are still made in the same factory, so I believe. Most pistols I have tried so far, nothing more than toys. Unless you get into the expensive hobby of pistol target shooting.:eek:
    Enjoy the MP 645.

    Lovely pistols, not the most accurate, but who gives a dam. I have managed to fire pellets from it but it is a bit of a faff

    Just don’t like the idea of it mate. Customs could just seize it (and who could blame them) and I’d lose my money

    It's perfectly legal to ship an airgun from EU, people on here have done it many times, myself included.
    The links may help someone looking for one, possibly me too!

    Oh I had no idea you were allowed to do it. It’s something I will certainly look at in the future, cheers

    If you search the forum, there's a sticky thread somewhere that lists every trusted EU website by members on here:thumb:

    Once you get it in your hand Jon you will love it. The only thing I did not like are the plastic grips but you can change them.

    Mark.

    Hi Mark, I must admit I’m not too struck on the reddy/ brown plastic bakerlite grips. Any suggestions of where to get different grips would be much appreciated. Looked on Fleabay, but they’re for the real deal and I’m not sure they would fit correctly . Any links would be MASSIVELY appreciated. Cheers Jon

    Hi Jon, All the one's you get now come with plastic grips. I have bakalite grips on one of mine and they
    are much better than plastic, better feel and slightly wider and come with a lanyard ring, They are off of an original
    Makarov. Only place I know of in the uk is rusmilitary but not dealt with them myself.

    Mark.
