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.

    Don't get to giddy yet, it took 10 week for mine to come through the door, and the first thing I went and bought was an AR-15.
    You should be able to get something for your cash, it all depends on what you want it for really.

    Just about any CZ bolt action should fit the bill. Get a decent one and you will keep it as long as you enjoy shooting. Someone has mentioned Anschutz. Great rifles at a great price but don't touch the 5x5 range of semi autos. They're the biggest pile of junk going.

    Id save a little more cash and look for a second hand Sako Finn Fire mark 1. Extremely accurate and the smoothest bolt action out there.
    Dont think anyone can argue with the statement above.
    CZ are great a work horse but the sako is a cut above the rest.

    Honestly, I do not know but would expect £500 for a good one. But ill say this, do not buy one that's had the barrel shortened. The barrel length is what made it so accurate.

    I still own the one my dad bought for my 21st birthday present, its just slick on the bolt cycle love shooting it.

    You'll easily get yourself a decent .22 LR for that sort of money. I saw an old BSA Martini action going for £75 on ******* a while ago. It was a bit tatty, but it'd be just as accurate as any other .22 LR. ;)

    I bought an old but good condition Anschutz 1541 with a Simmons WTC and PH mod and three magazines for £200 and it's lovely. There were all sorts of others available but that was the one I liked.

    Congrat's mate. Lovely feeling knowing your going to be going shopping soon for a new rifle. Not got a .22 myself, but all my mates sing the merits of 'CZ'. Seems like a no brainer to me. Be sure to post that picture of her, once you make your choice. Also, a good tip that I picked up from a mate when I first got my ticket. Make a photo copy of it, scrubb out all of your address on the copy, and just carry that one with your rifle. That way, should you drop or lose it, nobody will be able to know where the rest of your rifle's are. As long as plod can read you cert number, they have enough info to go on, should you be stopped by them. Cheers KB1

    :eek: Do you mean Anschutz 520's and 525's? I have a 525 and have owned 520's. Very accurate (don't chop the barrel lol) and never had one stoppage/jam.

    An old Brno/CZ setup will be approx £150 inc scope & mod, I got my Anschutz 1451 for £130 from a dealer who only gave £60 10 minutes before for it, plenty of gun out there for your money, you could buy one and with the money you have left over you could spend an hour with a rather expensive lady :eek:

    I got an Anschutz 1417 with a Simmons scope and parker hale mod in VERY good condition (the RFD that did the transfer for me even commented on how good con it was) for £425. It shoots and cycles absolutely amazingly. Smooth as silk!
