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.

    '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.

    You are breaking the forum rules if there is no comment on a sales or wanted thread by either the buyer or seller. 
    Or regarding to members manufacturing things stating something is going to be discussed and initiated through pm.
    I.e. 
    A buyer in manufactured section hi I’m interested in some work by you pm incoming.
    Or seller in a wanted add, hi I can do that for you pm incoming regarding it.
    Or a normal sale, hi I want to buy your item
    If a manufacturer gets asked privately about a sale they should say to the prospective buyer please comment on my thread to adhere to forum rules.

  6. 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.

    My latest acquisition... Umarex Browning buckmark ...
    I've been a bit disillusioned with co2 bb replica guns recently. Having owned several.. 1911, P08, Makarov, Beretta M92f, HK VP9, Colt SAA, Glock 17 gen 4... (Some of those still work...most have disappointed in some way... & the majority have had to be repaired, more than once!)
    I must admit... not having to rely on c02 takes me back to my childhood.. you know where you are with a springer!

    It's been fun.... So far!

    Nice little pistols, a lot of fun, for not a lot of money.
    The trigger can be very heavy out of the box - but can quite easily be improved.
    Enjoy.

    Lovely pistols which are a little bit let down by the lawyers trigger but you can't have everything on a budget!

    To be honest.. the trigger works fine for me without moderation... It does what it says on the tin!

    Unfortunately, it is very easy to ruin the sear in the process of trying to improve the trigger... :( :facepalm:

    Mine was a 'spares-or-repair' that I was able to fix. It's now one of my favourite pistols, despite the relatively heavy trigger.

    IMG_1104.JPG I get the urge to have a non co2/ pcp pistol
    This one has a better trigger than the Buckmark
    Costs a bit more

    Very nice, Having just got some S/H P17's I'm beginning to understand what all the fuss is about with SSP's. Sometimes you just want simplicity.
    Really like the look of the Sig though.

    The Sig does look nice, but, ridiculously overpriced.

    Compare it with the HW75 and the FAS 6004 and you will see it isn't
    Has a 5 year guarantee

    Also -haggle!

    It punches holes in baked bean cans which is a plus

    I liked my Buckmark for its simplicity
    But needed a bit more power

    I didn't think that the Sig was any more powerful than the other single stroke pneumatics, I may be wrong as I have never shot one. I would be more willing to accept its high price if it was a proper 10 metre target pistol. But it is not. I do like its looks though and if a reasonably priced used one came up I would be interested.

    IMG_20210604_171559410~2.jpg Just picked up one of these today. Really impressed with the accuracy. The pachmayr type grips are really good. 5 shots at 6yds 2 handed unsupported

    the Sig has the same power plant as the 6004 i have both
    they are both under powered and both are nice pistols, great indoor shooters
    the 6004 have target grip available, the Sig does not
    both are on a level a little below a HW75 but they are a little smaller
    i'm a buy to try sort of guy and i have try many pistols

    are the Sig or FAS 6004 worth the retail cost, maybe not but a used one in great shape at a great price, why not
    a Gamo Compact isn't worth the retail price but a good used one cheap it is a nice pistol
    same is said about a HW40, which is a better pistol then the P17 that everyone loves
    a 46m is the best SSP i own but a Webley Alecto, even though a multi stroke is a great pistol to have, 2 pumps is a piece of cake
    but i digress

    I can't seem to get on with my Alecto. The grip doesn't fit my hand and it's a huge pistol. Very accurate though
