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.

    Hi,

    Although I've seen examples in gun shops, yesterday I got my hands on a CO2 pistol for the first time. The model in question was an Umarex Peacemaker (Colt .45).

    I was very impressed with the quality of the gun, how it handled and fired. Shooting from about six feet the BB's went straight through a piece of foam building insulating material ( in my ignorance I thought it would just penetrate a few millimetres!).

    The upshot is I can now see why you collectors are so enthusiastic about the COs pistol scene. I'm going to be taking far more interest in this section of the site from now on.

    Can I ask - the semi-auto pistols. Do they blowback when shot like a firearm? I know you slide to cock.

    They sure do, they share many of the same operations as the real things slide cycles with blowback and locks to rear on a empty mag, I had a Sig Sauer x5 bb and it even field stripped exactly like the real thing and weighed the same as well. :D

    There are some fantastic semi auto blowback co2 pistols. You will love them I think.

    This video shows some:


    I love the Western types most of all but I really like all co2 firearms.

    There are also several that look like a semi-auto but don't blowback i.e. Walther CP88 so you need to make sure you get what you want.

    My western revolvers are all pellet firers but I do have some BB firers in the blowback type replica too.

    Welcome to the CO2 handgunning fraternity PeeBee ! :)

    Your wallet 'n' wife are the only two things that can cause consternation once you start down this road of gas guzzling, pellet firing, tin can plinking happiness...... Speaking of wallet 'n' Wife, one you need and one is optional, but I'll let you decide which is which ;)

    Thanks for the replies. I can't believe I've missed this section of the airgun hobby. I'm impressed with the photos (I haven't watched the video yet). I'm going to start saving my pennies.............

    Another question. With blowback semi-auto's, do the eject the spent cartridge like firearms when they are cycling?

    There is no cartridge with the blowback guns the BB is fed from the magazine directly into the barrel.
    If you want cartridges you need a revolver (see Wild Bill's selection above) or the new Umarex Winchester rifle but they are obviously manual operation. There are also a few modern style revolvers that use cartridges.

    The only BB airgun that ejects a spent cartridge is the Umarex Cowboy rifle as Tallyln says above.:thumb:
