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.

    Mate, honestly, the P17 is a fantastic pistol for the price. It’s accuracy is brilliant and it feel like a proper, grown up pistol. Your RFD is talking out of his a**e..... utter rubbish!

    Selling my Airsoft mp7 to partly fund it :)
    So it’s like a free gun to me lol
    Unsure about any red dot on it though as I have nerve damage in hands so prob need full length of top rail to cock it.

    TBH, try the open sights. The levering action is dead easy to open and a bit of a rascal to close. I’ve got used to the opens and can hit a tin can at 20mtrs. Hey, I’d never win a competition but it’s epic FUN!

    As you say @Jay Butts we've paid more for mounts ! Can't argue with that mate.

    My current goto pistol is the Alecto - does anyone have both for an objective comparison ?

    That's an RFD I'd avoid if that's the standard of their judgement.

    I did think about a Beeman before I bought a mint s/h HW40 for more than a new P17. I tend to keep things once I’ve got them so I erred on the side of caution and got the HW.
    My thinking was that like Chinese copies of Honda engines they look identical and work as well but not for so long as the materials are not so good.
    Not saying that is the case here and I guess time and long term usage will provide the answer.
    Not sure how long P17’s have been around so maybe it already has.
    Anyway I love my HW40 and if the P17 is as good it most certainly is a bargain.

    The P17 has been around under one model name or another for 2 decades, and they're proving every bit as durable as their HW cousins. They're not unauthorised reverse engineered copies of other peoples products, like the Chonda motors.

    People used to raise questions about Japanese cars and electronics. Look how wrong they turned out to me.

    I did think that might be the case and if there were a Beeman equivalent of an HW45 I would be near the front of the queue.

    I’ve had a .177 P17 for a few years now and love it using the opens for a bit of garden plinking fun. I find they make your arm ache if you’re out plinking for a long time & the pop when fired gets a bit annoying and is quite loud in our confined garden but a bit of tape of the three slots on top of the muzzle dulls it a bit.
    I also made up a barrel extension with a 1/2” unf adapter that just push’s in the end of the muzzle and fitted a HW mod to it, that made it very quiet but you have to remove it after each shot to be able to cock it so not very convenient really, I’ll find another way one day.
    A strip and lube of the compression tube with lithium grease every so often also keeps them running well & a polish of the trigger sears makes it even better.
    Enjoy
    Rog

    P17 or HW40 I reckon the great thing about them is that everyone who has one loves them and agrees they are such good fun. Even people who have no real interest or have never even shot anything before like them. No recoil so anyone is in with a chance of hitting a can at close range before they get bored with trying and give up. It is as much fun seeing the faces of people who haven’t shot anything before light up as they suddenly discover that they enjoy a bit of plinking.

    Maybe we should have a whip around and buy Chris Packham one.
