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.

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.

  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.

    he didnt get one but turns out i want one now :p

    im looking for something

    .below 150 quid
    . fresh air powered, i dont want to buy gass canisters.
    .compact, short barrel
    .close to the 12 ftlbs limit
    .i have spare scopes so i dont really need one with the gun.
    .i have a 22 springer so i want this to be pneumatic for less recoil.

    You want a new PCP for £150? double it and you're getting close to second hand money....

    Futuristic looking with a plastic stock,have you considered airsoft,or even nerf guns? :p

    Do you perhaps mean by black futuristic thumb hole and "pneumatic",that you are thinking of one of the gamo "IGT" jobbies."Pnuematic Gas Ram"

    Hi Jim

    I know you are new to the forum, but I've read a few of your posts and they seem to be aimed a bit more at just "having a laugh" rather than anything seriously air gun related, and although having fun is at the core of the airgun sport, I don't think you quite "get it" with "£150 PCPs" and "firing glow sticks to explode on targets", it not what I'd be putting into £2k worth of gun:eek:

    Do a bit of research and educate yourself, don't just come away with these ridiculous posts, people are happy to help if you help yourself, but your just embarrassing yourself at present.

    James

    i dont feel embarassed. these post are only ridiculous because you have a 2k gun which probably means you have a fair amount more money time and experience sunk into your chosen sport. i plink with my 60 pound p17 some cheap 22 spring rifle and a horifically old and batterd air pistol that used to be my dads guns.

    so i figure why not be a bit inventive,creative,explorative. i always wear saftey glasses and do it in an enclosed space (alone :( ). the velocities that either guns put out are.....low at best. also there low cost and already poor conditon means i dont mind trying out things that wouldnt dream about putting in said rifle im hoping to get.

    and along the line of questionability of my topics.... i havnt asked what pellets are best for killing an animal etc . like i said early, "i plink" i have not and will not ever point my gun at another living thing. except plant life.......but who doesnt want to see what you can do to a water melon in slow motion? :)

    so back on to the topic of this post

    i wasnt looking for a pcp but more a single lever action or multipump pnuematic. one that take a bit of man muscle to cock

    along the lines of the webley rebel. that runs on fresh air and is around 120 quid, right? i might be willing to stretch to around 200-250 but ill have to really like it.

    sorry for the confusion...
    and thanks for your replies.

    even the mean ones :)

    Well a multi pump will always run off 'fresh air' so it won't be CO2,that's a given.

    Webley Rebel seems to be your only choice,an old Sharps Innova or a Crosman 1377 would also fit the bill but i'm not sure on power levels and the latter isn't a rifle.

    There aren't many pneumatics around because they are a lot of faffing about,stick with a springer or stretch to a PCP.

    Hello, if you are willing to up your budget then try looking on the free ads & gun* I found some good deals on them when looking for a PCP some even local to me so I'm sure you will have a good chance to find some thing local to you :) I bagged an at44-10 great condition with a good scope, silencer, gun bag, pellets and a styrup pump £300 but I also seen some PCP rifles for £250.

    Cheers, Greg.

    thanks for the replies

    i did look at the baikal 514k....i loved it. its seemed exactly what i was looking for. magazine pellets . i liked its looks and inovation so much so that even though its a springer i still wanted it.

    then i saw a few youtube videos and......sadly it sounded...cheap hollow and plasticy. saw it jam a few times and not load correctly. plus the power level wasnt that much more than my p17. all this is is why i was put off.

    looks like a webley rebel it is then.
