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.

    Hello every one I have just been on the GMK website to register the warranty on my new Beretta silver pigeon classic there is an option to extend the three year warranty to ten years for a payment of £50.
    This is not a lot of money for an extra 7 years but is it worth doing. My other Beretta a 682 sporter was bought new in 1984 and has never had any parts replaced but it does get serviced every year as will the new sp. what are your thoughts on this please.

    Nice looking gun.

    If something goes wrong, think how much you will kick yourself for not spending £50.

    If nothing goes wrong, think where that £50 would have been spent.

    £50 will get you some cheap drink and cheap women.

    Tough call.

    I have just bought a new Berretta Silver Pigeon 1 as well. I didn't notice the extra 7 years for £50 when I registered mine but you have got me thinking.

    I don't generally take out extra warranties as they are usually relatively expensive and as often as not are only for a year or two.

    However £50 for 7 years is a lot of years and dead cheap. But then why are GK doing it. It seems to be GMK themselves doing the warranty not Berretta. GMK must be confident in the product or they would soon be out of pocket if a bunch a warranty claims come in. Also if GMK go bust or taken over the £50 could be lost.

    Hence to me the product is a quality item and GMK are not expecting it to break in 10 years and they expect to make an extra £50 out of most punters. My gamble is that if I look after it, I don't use it extensively anyway, it is highly unlikley to break.

    But I (as does everybody else) have an ace up my sleeve, its called statutory rights. It basically says we have a right to claim for faulty goods up to 6 years of ownership. Google it.

    If my Berretta breaks through faulty workmanship after 3 years I am prepared to have a legal fight with my supplier. Land rover fixed my dash board which was peeling away on my 1996 Discovery 1 after a lawyer took landrover to court as it was happening to nearly every landrover over 3 years. The case ended up on watchdog and Landrover agreed to sort them all.

    Thanks for the reply's guys I have bit the Bullet and took out the extended warranty. As for the cheep drink and cheap women I will have to give both of them a miss as I am in enough trouble for buying the gun in the first place. The cheap women could be tempting but I don't think the dog would let me share her kennel if her indoors found out.

    At about 5 years I stated passing by Factory can they be checked out under Warrenty

    Reply yes and got them fully serviced Free of Charge with several new bits fitted - eg fireing pins

    If you intend keeping it that long it may be worth the £50 which is not a lot of money for an extra 7yrs warranty.You need to know what the extended warranty covers.Like your other Beretta you may never have any trouble but there again if you do it could be expensive and the £50 could have been money well spent.Check what the extended warranty covers(READ THE SMALL PRINT)

    You've probably made a wise decision considering the cost of the gun and the cost of the extra warranty.

    I found it that Berretta found it helpful to keep customers Happy -

    I had several part's replaced - that had worn in heavy use - in those day's I was Shooting clays
    Every Sunday and often in the week -

    They are also aware the majority will not claim as well aware there porduct is well made for hard use -
