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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:


    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,after reading the service issues some people get with gunshops I
    just thought I would inform you of a problem I had with a scope I bought for my HW98, it was a nikko sterling night eater 6-24x56.

    after about 100 shots the reticile rotated 30 degrees and had to be returned to BAR, it was replaced straight away no fuss and returned just two days later!

    then amazingly the replacement also broke, this time a crack appeared in one of the internal lenses, after roughly the same number of shots no less!!

    back went the scope with a covering letter explaining there has to be a compatibility issue with the rifle and scope!

    I then recieved a phone call from BAR suggesting a replacement scope of different make, an AGS swat in this case, then next day I recieve a courtesy call from BAR to say the new scope is en route.

    the point of this post is to say--

    Thank you to BAR for excellent service , very professional attitude and prompt postage!
    I cannot have asked for more from them and I HIGHLY reccomend this shop to anyone who wants to buy anything mail order! [​IMG]

    Got my SLR98 and Fenman from BAR as well as two scopes.
    One of the scopes was supposed to come next day but it didn't so i rang BAR and they got the courier to deliver it Saturday morning which would have normally cost £15 for a Sat delivery. :hail2:

    This type of service is the norm from Lloyd and his employees at BAR.

    I don't get my kit anywhere else now.

    I rate Lloyd and his A-team as second to none when it comes to customer service and satisfaction, which is always encouraging. They are a pleasure to do business with as I have over the years.

    clearly they value their customers and look to build a long term relationship which in my mind the key to a successful business, also word of mouth is so important and with the internet its easy to scare potential customers off with horror stories....reading this makes me want to us e only them if I lived in the U.K.

    I've had poor dealings with two gunsmiths here in the EU, one in Luxembourg and another in Belgium, the gunsmith I bought my airwolf off in Holland was nothing short of amazing...very helpful with advice and ideas, great discount and I will buy my next two rifles from this guy, guaranteed...even if it is a bit of a trip.
