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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  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.

    tis true.... bit p****d off with 'stock' photos or out of date ones on sites that depict a less attractive gun in a previous good light... if you get me...

    I would maybe have bought a KWC or Gletcher (same gun!) blowback version of the Mak but the actual available version now has a larger paddle on the end of the mag (not very realistic) or the Umarex version has that nasty screw in toggle to load the gas.... it takes it too far from the realism for me....

    I agree, I like the realism of the Baikal's, I have a 1911 and a cz75 and a couple of D/W 715's and although they are very
    good replicas with blowback the Baikal's are in a different league.

    I’ve a nickel Makarov Baikal, love it even though they can drive you nuts. Done a load of mods, bought 2 extra mags that needed extensive work on them along with the original it came with to get them to fit and release easily and shoot properly.
    New wood grips, barrel and extension, seals, valves etc. I can get 1,100FPS out of it on a good day. I always fire it by cocking the hammer first, no particular reason why.
    My fingers are still sore from a magazine I got yesterday and needed putting together and took 4-5 co2 cartridges, and 4 hours until I could get it air tight. Then filing, sanding etc so it fits nicely, next job is to file and drill a hole on the top of the mag, tap some threads and add a screw to centre the BB’s in the magazine. Then cut the screw that pushes in the co2 cartridge so it’s flush with the end of the magazine. All pretty easy jobs. These things fresh out the shops are quite poorly finished.
    They are a lot of work compared to my superb Umarex Glock 17 that just works perfect always!
    I think it’s the bodged way that are made and the fixes you have to make which makes them attractive, and the Soviet era history behind them.
    Spend a lot of time fiddling, polishing and fettling it, find it therapeutic. I have 3 grips, am currently sticking to the wood one, always polishing the wood finish. Pretty sad eh?
    May get another...... Not parting with the one I have, put loads of hours into it.
    Taking the slide off is easy once you get the hang of it. Watching people struggle on you tube videos makes me wince. Am always scouring the web for any enhancements or tweaks I can do or buy.
    Parts can be pricy, I get most bits off a seller on “Etsy” which is like eBay but for arty stuff.
    Wish there was an owners forum or club I could attend.

    So back from a 3.5 hour round trip to Solware (who are fantastic) and here she is. Very real feel (very rustic too!) and worth the drive
