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.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    To clear this text box, click on the 'X' in the top right-hand corner.

    Looks in rough shape, but what would you say it's worth? I'm looking for a friend to be his first gun to see if he will want to carry on without spending a fortune up front and deciding he doesn't like it.

    Cheap Chinese tat with a cheapo 'scope; probably similarly capable of hitting the target to the other rifle pictured. About £60-70 new, a rough one might be worth £20..

    Shame it's missing the stock sling attachment, would've been worth a tenner if that was on it.

    Seriously, no more than £20. As a first gun, likely to dissapoint.

    And not doing the muzzle any good resting against the ground,stand it the proper way up with the butt on the ground.It's chinese and you could buy a new one for about £50 so about £20 no more.Depending on how it shoots it might put someone off airgun shooting :D seriously though it would probably be fine for some informal plinking in the back garden.

    Nice paint on the stock - which reminds me: my shed needs a coat of paint.

    TBH you'd be better off buying that plastic pump-action gun next to it.

    Even us saddo's on UKCAF wouldn't pay no more than a tenner for it. Both swivels are missing. There should be another fixed to the bolt that holds the cocking lever in place. The metal base of the rear sight can't be removed as it's a permanent fixture. Hence the old high scope. The flimsy mounts on these cheap scopes knock out of alignment with the slightest of knocks.
    Got my old tenners worth up to 7.5 ft/lb. Much more than that, it would blow apart.
    Years ago they use to give them to children in China to shoot mice when they were getting over run.... fact.

    Take your time and look around many bargains to be had second hand, get an old bsa mercury for not much more than 30 quid to name just one. Loads out there if you look around. Don't neglect dealers part exchange section, many sell cheap rifles just to clear them out of the way. Good luck.

    I've got one of those. Cost me nowt as a mate gave it me when I was looking for my first gun. To be honest it's not that bad and I still shoot it now and again. Wouldn't pay £50 for one though especially when you can get a brand new one for that from some RFD's.
