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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    '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.'

  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.

    Interesting, but a lot of money for what is to me a novelty rifle and you would be constantly having to refill it with only a poxy 100ml capacity air tube.

    I quite like that and wonder why anyone would call it a novelty rifle. Military trainers have been about for years and appeal to a fair chunk of shooters. As a plus point it is fitted wiith open sights. If they are of a good quality and dont wobble about all over I will be joining the queue:).

    100cc is a normal reservoir size for non buddy bottle air rifles such as the BSA Scorpion or some of the AA models. It depends how much shooting you do in a session but that capacity should get you around 100 depending on calibre.

    The Mauser k98 is too new for reviews.
    It has a sister, the Diana Stormrider gen 2 also with a 100cc air tube. Reviews of this quote 34 shots per fill but, that at 26ft lbs for the US/ German markets.

    Novelty to me since it's a replica and something I'm not into nor would it be much use in the field for pest control.

    I was looking at the Mauser K98 for 10 to 25m paper target shooting free standing and the novelty angle.
    For pest control Id go buddy bottle German or British mainstream manufacturers.

    I like it. It’s deffo on my list, and it would make a nice change from the “normal” format. I like open sights too

    This is what cheeses me off. The US get the same rifle, $320, compared to our cheapest £340 plus carr, plus RFD fees. So frustrating.

    Edit, just seen this is a “refurb” with only 60 day warranty!

    Doh!!!

    I can tell by looking at the fixtures on it that it came out of the same factory as the Artemis M30, SPA in China

    The bolt handle, gauge, trigger blade and guard, all M30 bits. Unfortunately that might mean dealing with the SMK people for spares.:handjob:

    I just can't take it seriously as a reproduction. If you look at one with the magazine in place, it stands out like a sore thumb, and completely destroys the realism. For the money they're asking for that in the UK, I would expect a greater degree of realism, not a quick and dirty reskin of a bargain-basement PCP.

    I dont think it was ever intended to be a reproduction. More in the style of. Does anyone know what the quality of the military style open sights is like.
