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 all, I'm new to the forum but have been a long time lurker.

    Just hoping I can get some investigative help on a mixed cache I've found and have been asked to sell. I'm not sure how much of this I can sell but thought I'd pose the question; what can I sell and what rough amounts should I be looking at?

    help would be much appreciated but anyway, here goes;

    View attachment 92816 I know this is a 97K .177 (have one myself) bought 2003, used fairly regularly and serviced annually at a local specialist. It has a 9 x cheap 'tasco' sight on some high mounts.

    View attachment 92818 Second sight for the 97k, 12 x. Not sure on make but seems much better quality than the one fitted.

    View attachment 92826 Third sight for the 97k, 24 x. Branded 'tasco'. Seems pretty cheap but has some interesting features like an illuminated reticulate.
    View attachment 92817 Not sure about this one either, is some sort of Crossman CO2 rifle that takes the bigger bulbs. Seals seem to have gone as it just expels air when you put one in. Is semi automatic, has a time 4x sight on it. From what by brother has said, it's hardly been used.

    View attachment 92825 CO2 Pistol Walther CP99. Has a speedloader with a few hundred copper *** and two full boxes of 12g CO2 Bulbs. Not sure if he had stored them incorrectly because as with the CO2 rifle, the seals seem to have gone and it currently releases CO2 as soon as you screw the bulb in.
    View attachment 92827 CO2 Pistol, Walther PPK replica. Takes the same copper *** as above, has the same CO2 not holding issue as above. Seems to have a fair few scratches on it, mostly from a laser sight it once had under-slung.

    View attachment 92819 Not too sure what this is. a CO2 Pistol that can take either small paintballs or rubber ***. Also seems to have the same broken seal issue as above. Think it's some sort of replica.


    There is also a plastic BB gun but I don't think it's mature enough for me to put on here (my brother said to look for something called 'airsoft').

    Anyway, any help would be much appreciated. I tried to take them to a local shop that sells second hand rifles and pistols but they only offered on the 97k and wouldn't touch the CO2 stuff unless it was working fully.

    Cheers,

    Simon

    Thanks for the early offers but don't want to commit to sell unless I know I'm getting a fair price for both sides. I know that's a tough ask as the CO2 stuff isn't working correctly but any indication would be great.

    I'm sure other people will correct me if I'm wrong, but a leaking CO2 pistol isn't worth anything due to the multitude of issues that could be causing the leak.

    Working, 'excellent condition' PPKs sell on here for £40-50. CP99 slightly more.

    Hello :)

    The 1st rifle is indeed a '97k; in good cosmetic nick and good working order I'd suggest a value of around £225-260. The cheapo Tasco 'scope maybe £15, the mounts £5-10 depending on their brand.

    The next two 'scopes are nowt special; the first I think is a Simmons 4-12xsummot, the second is a cheapo generic Chinese 6-24 "Tasco" special. Both or of the "new" breed of 'scopes under these brands - I'd give a value of £15-20ea ballpark.

    The synthetic rifle is a Crosman Nightstalker - these were around £160 new and IIRC have a terrible rep for reliability. In working order I'd reckon on £60-70, more like £30 if the seals are shafted or it has other issues. The 'scope fitted is probably worth £10-15, the case maybe a tenner.

    The CP99 Compact would have retailed for around £130; used value for a good working example would be around £60-80; if it has issues I'd reckon on £30-40 if you're lucky.

    The PPK/s is similar to the compact; I'd reckon around £40-50 if working (given the damage), more like £20-30 with a leak.

    The next CO2 pistol is a RAM paintball gun - no idea as to value I'm afraid as I know little about these; likewise I know nowt about Airsoft so can't advise on the SMG-alike.

    As you say gunsmiths probably aren't particularly interested in a lot of this stuff as it's potentially more trouble than it's worth. If they did take any of it, expect to be offered around 50-60% of used retail value.

    Before writing off the CO2 guns you might want to drip a little oil into the area that seals against the bulb / put a blob on to of a fresh bulb, refit and fire - might just be that the seals have dried out through lack of use.

    HTH ;)

    Use liquid moly oil treatment, It softens and reconditions value seals on car engines.
    http://www.liquimoly.co.uk/
    I did it to a Umarex PPK i bought a few weeks ago which was leaking a full CO2 bulb as soon as it was pierced.
    Strip the gun down to minimum components and then use a syringe or dropper to saturate the seals, leave for
    an hour or so and retry. It may take 3 bulbs to confirm if its recoverable or scrap.
    Mine is a great little plinker again now and cost a few quid to repair. Replacing seals is a pain in the butt and costs over £40 to get done.

    Hi mate, the paintball pistol is indeed that. A .43 calibre Real Action Marker (RAM). Can be run from co2 bulbs or bulk filled, I believe. Think it's a Sig variant? Saw a few going on gun* for around the hundred/hundred and twenty quid mark recently.

    The little airsoft is a full auto mac11, powered by green gas. I've got one, and it empties a clip of 48 .25g beebees in two seconds! Awesome fun for a laugh, and hurts like blazes when it tags you. Surprisingly accurate for what it is. Think it's around 320fps or thereabouts. Got mine for £70 posted secondhand. Think the cheapest I've seen a new one for is £125.

    Anyway, hope that helps,

    Mick.

    thank you for all the responses, some really useful info. Got some PMs to respond to and don't worry, before I sell anything I'll read through the rules.

    Cheers,

    Simon
