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.

    '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.'

  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. No longer allowed 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- We now do not allow political and religion threads anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section) unless Airgun related and they must be put in the Airgun related politics section..

    Staff will not move posts for you if you put it in the wrong section – it will simply be deleted. You will then have to type it all out again and put it in the right place, so heed this warning.

    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.

    Either the Beretta 92fs or the S&W 686. Best replica co2 pistols in my opinion.

    Remember pistols with blowback use more co2.. I think it's a useless feature.

    Cybergun Tanfoglio Witness 1911, Cybergun Sig Sauer P226 X-Five, Cybergun GSG 92 or one of the revolvers in the Dan Wesson line up (Dan Wessons are fantastic replicas, even without blowback, because of the individual shells.) You could always get a free SMK catalogue from here: http://sportsmk.co.uk/contact/ and have a look at the 6mm 'airsoft' plastic bb co2 pistols, which are also very realistic replicas and may be safer than their 4.5mm steel bb counterparts.

    If going for a dan wesson choose the OLD version, the newer versions are made in teh same factory as the new smith and wessons and they are CACK!

    For realism replica, field stripping capability, and blowback.

    1. Cybergun Tanfoglio witness 1911
    2. Cybergun sig saur

    Definately the witness! One of the best guns I own (CP88, HW45, P23), for performance, realism and quality. The blowback is so much fun and very realistic and also accurate for a bb gun! It's fully field stripable. It's also a bargain! Can't recommend it enough!

    thanks for all the replys i think im going to go for a witness, i had thought about the dan wesson revolvers but i think loading them will be a bit of pain and i think he relay likes the idea of pulling a slide back to cock the action. If i know my brother he will mostly play rambos around the house dry firing around doors hes kinda preparing for the zombie Apocalypse hes 25

    I would not recommend dry firing round the house or pointing it at anyone even with an empty mag,
    I quite often found bb's lodged inside my witnness , a bb could easily find it's way into the barrel and blind someone ,
    remember these are not toys,

    tang foglio witness,brilliant, and they dont use to much co2, 3to 4 mags depending on temp. look nice with wood grips, and can be stripped right down, and even polished, easy to if you got the time, check it out on the tube. dan wesson is fun an all, loading the shells in ,just like the real thing, plus a nice weight, i have both and like them both equally. although one is coming up for sale soon,

    I must agree with the Witness it's just to much fun and it strips down almost the same as a real 1911. If someone were to atach the thumb screws and force me to finde falt with it it would be the Co2 use I can only get about three and a half magazines from one bulb but I dont care I'ts Fun Fun Fun. As soon as i can I'm going to get a couple of spare magazines to alow them to heat up beatween fills this may help things a bit. There are other Co2 guns with rifled barrels such as the Baikal Makerov that work with true .177 lead *** like the Gamo *** and not the steel *** mostly used in the Cybergun range I have found my one to be a bit more acuret but for fun go with the Tanfoglio ( remember and get the metal one not the plastic one same name diferant gun) hop this is of some help
    cheers Tom.
