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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.'

    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,
    Does anyone know what’s going on with Carl @ Airtech? Dropped an Ultra off early November to have some work done, been trying to get hold him to see when it’s going to be ready, but for the last 2 weeks had no reply to mails and no answer on the phone..? Cheers, Mark.

    Carl does good work, but contacting him tends to be problematic at times. Be assured that when you do get your Ultra back it will have been worth the wait.

    As has been mentioned he's a member on here; also you might want to try searching his username on the forum for the numerous times similar questions have been asked..

    Nothing wrong with his work but he does tend to a bit vague or optimistic with his lead times as previous threads on here regarding him will testify.

    Let's put it this way,if i wanted a gun tuned and done in a reasonable lead time,say within 3 weeks i don't think AirTech would be my first choice/port of call.;)

    I must have been lucky with mine. Called him at 10am on a Wednesday dropped the gun off around 12 then had it back the following Monday.

    Super service for me! All I can think he is on vacation (after all it is Christmas).

    If you’re unhappy, why don’t you just give the bloke a call.

    You certainly were judging by previous accounts on here regarding his turn around times, but perhaps it makes a difference if you can drop off and pick up when the gun is ready.

    Sorry, perhaps I was stating the obvious. Maybe I was just lucky with a prompt service, I know others have not been so happy.

    Mine took exactly 4 months. Yep he is a nightmare to get hold of. I know it is always best to try calling during normal working hours and i had the most luck on Saturday mornings.

    It was a bit unnerving not getting much in responses from him but i knew that before i sent the rifle so was willing to wait. I think for most this is unacceptable but i had a few other rifles to play with so it was no hardship to wait.

    I dropped the gun off on 9th November and am picking up, so that makes no difference, he said he would crack on with it and I’d have it back the following week.., your right Patrick he is a little Optimistic with his lead times...there’s no excuse this day and age for not getting back to someone it would take seconds just to put me in the picture, but to just be ignored.. I’ll guess I’ll just have to wait, not sure how much longer to give it, before I just have to turn up there and see what’s going on.. cheers for replies folks

    Quite saddened to hear such poor reviews, as the guy is very talented in what he does.

    Hopefully, you we’ll get a result (and your gun back) real soon.

    A txt message or a quick phone call confirming progress .... costs nothing.

    I’ve only had a couple of things done by Carl and both return times were extremely prompt. (Just a few days) Not that this comment helps your good self.
