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.

    hey im looking at them at the moment...

    blowback simulates real recoil, it is used by Co2 pistols.

    it uses extra C02 gas to push the slide back and recock the pistol, so you use a lot more C02 but its totally awesome so worth it!!

    http://www.ranger.uk.com/product/gamo-pt85-blowback/

    thats the one im looking at at, great reviews, but I have just started another thread asking advice from owners, as I have never owned a pistol

    hope this helps

    They're semi auto in that they are magazine fed and fire repeatedly with out having to re-cock or reload. It's kind of hard to explain but you're quite right in that a springer or co2 pistol could throw the pellet or bb just as far without pushing the top slide back. At the end of the day in almost every case it serves little purpose other than to replicate the action of a full calibre semi automatic pistol. If you've used full calibre pistol anything other than blow back just feels inadequate (and even then it lacks the bang and true kick) it's a bit like a non alcoholic larger lol

    I have several CO2 6mm pistols that are Auto's with blow back action

    Looks and feels impressive - but uses more CO2 per shot - But I believe it worth the less Shots per CO2 Bulb

    Yup - with a blowback you can empty the magazine in about 3 seconds. Rapid firing.

    Blowbacks also give you multi shot with a single action trigger. Pistols like the Cp88 require you to either cock the hammer for every shot or use the longer, heavier pull of a double action trigger. A single action trigger is almost always better. I have shot pistols with a good smooth double action but they have been real guns with the trigger mech being made of polished hardened steel.
