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.

    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.

    Hi guys I'm using a BSA airsporter 2.2 for me to just start off I think it's 1970s not entirely sure.

    first of all are these guns good to start off with? I have just fitted a BSA scope 3-9x40 (which needs zeroed)

    i have fired it a couple of times it's it's quite noisy I know most of the noise is down to the mechanics of the gun but I was wondering if there are any push on silencers for it? And also is it possible to take off the aim bit from the bottom of the barrel?

    Cheers

    Not sure on that model mate

    My meteor had a fibre optic sight on the end, I had to slide the very top part off sideways, Which uncovered a screw to unscrew the rest from the barrel

    That might help.. it might not!

    hi,if its in good original condition with its sights intact you may find it easier to sell or swap for a new rifle,airsporters have a bit of a following and can get a good price,certainly enough to buy a modern full power rifle ,good luck

    :)If,it was mine, Id Leave the front sight where it is , you ll hardly notice its there when your scopes focus is 20 or 30 yards away. if its got the tunnel bit on it ,ok,carefully! Take that off, if its buggin ya, ,but be carefull with that screwdriver whatever you decide to do. Like the man said, they have a following, and the last thing anyone wants to buy,is a nice ,shiny freshly made scar in the metalwork, Really easy to do, all thats required is...the screwdriver , this of course is a Scots version and a personal opinion, post up some pics matey, let folks know more about it Everyone likes photos .serial number and. IMO you can be rest assured most of the info you dont have yet, will be given by these dudes for sure. :up:
