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.

    It would appear that 'Crosman' have finally jumped on the wagon, and made the decision to sell a 2250 from out of the box with a metal breech. I wonder if the very first designs of these pistols and rifles were originally made from the tech drawings with a full metal body and parts list, only then to be mass produced on a cost basis in 'fantastic plastic'.

    So why would 'Crosman' suddenly decide to go down the metal route, when the original guns have quite clearly sold so very well across all markets.

    I can only imagine that the increase in price for this change in design, may be the worst move ever on 'crosmans' part. Surely individuals now thinking about an initial spend outlay for these guns, at £200, might make them take the decision to spend just a little more cash instead, and end up with a far better package in the form of another brand. :confused: KB1

    It's nice to see Crosman bucking the general trend of "make it cheaper (and worse) and sell at the same price" that generally afflicts most manufactured goods.

    I suspect Crosman took the decision based on the popularity of aftermarket steel breeches from Gmac and the like; plus the fact that, whichever way you look at it, the plastic effort is pretty crappy.

    I'd disagree with your thoughts on the pricing - locally the 2250B is £129 while the 2250XT is £165. For the extra £36 / 22% you get the steel breech, longer barrel, mod adaptor and a 'scope that's actually worth having. IMO that little lot is well worth the extra. What else could you get for similar money that's as compact and recoilless?

    Not that I'd buy one as I already have too many guns; but the 2250XT is one of the few guns in this price range that actually makes me want to part with money..

    I never realised that the barrel, scope. and mod adaptor were included extras. The add that I read, stated £199. But, having had the 2250, my days with co2 are over. Its just not worth the uncertainty of performance for my liking. I would rather save a tad more and have the power of a spring. Just my opinion mind. Only time will tell. KB1
