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.

    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 all.

    Just a general question about the company BSA.

    How are they generally considered in terms of quality Airguns overall?
    There are so many manufacturers out there which produce similar products in every price range it is very hard to steer in one direction even knowing what you want the gun for.
    I have been drawn to 2 of their models, the Ultra and the Scorpion, and so wondered if there were equally similar products out there but better, if you know what I mean.

    I think generally BSA are thought to be quite a good quality British company. They make some fantastic springers as well as pcp's such as BSA lightning . Overall the quality of their guns are quite good but i'm not sure what there after sale service is like.

    bsa products are good, but in my opinion there springers are a bit dated and cheap looking. i have owned a scorpion and they are a good rifle , but the airarms 400 range is superior.
    as far as bsa customer service.....its second to none.

    Good company. You can buy their products with confidence.

    Not much competition in the cheap very small carbine market except the elderly FN8 or 12 from Falcon.

    Nice gun but comes in Carbine length only as opposed to the S400 which gives you a choice of lengths. Better finished than the S400. Is screw cut for a silencer which the S400 is not. Trigger is about the same quality. Woodwork is not as good as AA timber. BSA make their own barrels as opposed to AA who buy Walther units.

    If you want a BSA then get one.

    i mainly own bsas and mainly due to living close to them.
    guns do what they say on the tin and are reliable and built to last and are cheaper then competitors.
    down side is there email and attitude "some times" but when you go the factory they go out the way to help.
    other down side is im sick of seeing the hornet action and now the s10 has been dis continued for yet again another hornet based action which apparently can do you a piece of toast in the field and they are working on it being able to butter it.
    what they call there flag ship rifle:rolleyes:
