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.

    I asked my local RFD about a HW100 in .20 and they said it would be a 12 week wait for stock.
    Well ..... That was 15 weeks ago now lol.

    Does anyone know of a RFD that keeps these on the shelf?

    It`s for my father ..... 67 years old and still loving his air rifles! :)

    Thanks

    That will be the "don't want to wait for it, do you?" price. :)

    Woodies of Wembley had 3 on the shelf when I was down there. They always have plenty in stock of whatever model. Yes, it will be more expensive for one that actually exists......when they haven't got any, theirs are £750 aswell.

    That is an age old ploy to put you off buying them somewhere else...I bet you, when you order one at £750, it will arrive in 3 months time at a higher price....the price went up in the meantime. That means you have missed out for 3 months and still pay the same. A bird in the hand.....

    Does he want a rifle or carbine version though?
    When I looked for a HW100 all I could ever see were carbine versions so I would imagine a full length .20 would be a rare sight to be in stock in a shop.

    Companies that advertise stuff they haven't got, get right up my snotbox!:mad: I have a way of dealing with them though, I just tell them ok, you are advertising the item at XX amount, so order me one up, and when it comes in I will pay you XX amount, and not one penny more. You can bet your arse that if it came in a bit cheaper, they wouldn't pass the saving on to you.

    They don't like it Mr Mainwaring! They don't like it at all!:D

    I ordered a hw100kt in .20 months and months ago at an agreed price of £740 (£722 for .177 or .22) and was told it would be a 12 week wait.

    I left a £50 deposit and it arrived in 4 weeks. When i went to pick up the rifle, the guy asked for the remaining balance of £799?!?!

    He had seen them online for £849 so upped his price to suit. To be honest i was glad he had put the price up. It was a good excuse for me to pull out. The stock was awful and it was only doing 10.1ft/lbs with ftt......i now have a beauty in .177 that i picked up this weekend

    Did yer get yer 50 squids back? Good on you though, if more people voted with their feet, instead of caving in for the sake of getting the product, we would all be somewhat better off.

    Yeah i got my £50 back no problem. He gave me some rubbish that they have been told by hull cartridge they HAVE to sell them for £849 and no lower so there was nothing he could do....then when i asked for my 50 notes back, he all of a sudden dropped the price to £760 (still £20 more than agreed)

    So as a matter of principle, he tried it on with me and tried to empty my wallet, then bare face lied. So he lost my trust, i got my refund and i havnt been back since.

    Shot himself in the foot to be honest, i have bought 2 rifles, 3 scopes and many accessorys and pellets since, of which i used to buy in his store.

    He`s after a carbine, he likes the compact feel of it.
    Originally he wanted a sporter stock but after trying my HW101 he has changed his mind to thumbhole.
    When he bought his S510 carbine in .22 he was surprised how long it was! lol
