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.

  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.

    More likely that Weihrauch are really hacked off that some Chinese company are churning out for all intents and purposes an identical gun at less than or about half the the price. If the same company is making them under licence for Weihrauch then considering the price differential and the far greater profit margin then Weihrauch should be laughing assuming they can sell them at that price but there again why would anyone want to pay about £140 for gun that they can buy for about £70 so it cuts both ways,unless of course you're just a brand/name snob who wants the name Weihrauch on the gun instead of Beeman.

    Haha, mate, I may end up doing the same! Had a family bank holiday weekend and not had chance to give it a proper go. I have the week off so I will have to see how I get on with it. Must admit, I’m not a fan of fibre optic sights..:thumb:

    Can I also add that Weihrauch in the USA are sold and badged under the Beeman name!

    Perhaps the P17 is more similar to the HW40 than people realise! :thumb::facepalm:

    Don’t want to open a can of worms but I’d be miffed had I bought an HW40 and later discovered the P17...

    The P17 isn't a rip off of the HW, but Beeman own the licence to manufacture them under their own name. The licence payments probably earn Weirauch far more money than the mere sales of their own branded pistols alone.

    Probably doesn't want you to buy it as it's cheap, more profit in selling you a hw40 I bet

    My RFD told me that at one time Beeman was weirauchs main designer and the HW40 is actually a build of the Original Beeman design which was done before he left their employment.
    So basically exact same pistol.
    My RFD has em as a package with Beeman red dot on top at £79.00. 41dp+fbg4SL.jpg
