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.

    I know, I've that one too (albeit the Dan Wesson first generation version), shockingly accurate for such a little gun. Personally, I think that using a shorter barrel shows the abilities (and inability) of a shooter, you've got to be a good shooter to get any sort of useful results from a snubby.

    Btw, yours look like good results to me , there's only a slight difference in your rested and weaver groupings (slightly opened up a bit in the weaver stance) :)

    Oooh, guess what I did.......;)

    here's a clue........

    Yep, I managed to find a donor DW715-6" in silver and did the inner barrel, power valve and foresight swap over.
    Now I've got the full matching set of three, terribly OCD I know but boy do they look good now !

    Apologies for the absence. Went through a tough breakup but everything is good now.
    So I'm going to attempt that valve swap this weekend on my DW 715 2.5". I can confirm the new "airsoft" valve is in fact a stainless steel as opposed to the copper looking stock valve, and also has 3 fairly large holes.
    I will upload a picture of the valve soon.

    Also a friend purchased a new DW 715 6" and I can confirm that it uses the exact same rifled barrel from the 2.5" and the rest of the inner barrel is merely a 6mm diameter sleeve that sits over the 2.5" 4.5mm barrel and extends to the end of the gun. Pretty rubbish to be honest and it doesn't seem to shoot any harder or more accurately than my 2.5"

    So basically I believe all the Dan Wessons are the same gun internally now, with the extra barrel length now purely a visual change rather than a performance change.

    Glad to see that you're back buddy :)

    Going from the information collated from everyone else about the DW715-6", personally I wouldn't recommend getting the pellet version anymore, I think that if you're buying new then you would be better off with the bb version as it at least has a 6" internal barrel (albeit a smoothbore barrel) which would probably have better accuracy and would definitely have more power (fps).
    It's a crying shame that unless you get an older version of the pellet DW715-6" you're going to get a 'neutered' gun, I'd have rather that they had ceased production altogether than gone down this cheap skate, penny pinching route.
    They've taken something special and turned it into something 'meh' ! :(&:mad:

    It looks like the 4" pellet one is still rifled though, mine has a 20Axxxxx serial number and is fully rifled

    Yeah, it just seems to be just the 6" version that they've messed with (at the moment)....Oh well, at least we know that the 4" is still good on the later issues (2020 versions).

    Thanks for the input buddy, knowledge is power ;)
