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.

    If it has 3 regularly spaced notches on the compression cylinder then it's a mk2 if it has no notches then mk1. If the action has a shrouded barrel and irregularly spaced notches then it a mk3. Hope this help?
    Im sure somone will correct me if I'm wrong.

    This (i.e. the compression chamber as viewed through the loading cutout) - can only say that it's a Mk2 or Mk3 from the pic..

    Okay cheers for the replies heres a full pic, and im
    Not actually even sure what a bear trap is mate i only bought it today and have been trying to get the scope to zero for the last hour. I have managed to get it so that it aims on centre but an inch below if i start to adjust the top of the scope it wonders of left and right so im abit stuck with that one too and im only firing at roughly 15 metres too View attachment 101607

    The bear trap is the silver bit that slides back when you pull the underlever down so you can put the pellet in

    From the lack of chequering at the fore-end that looks like an early Mk2 or even a late Mk1.. a pic from the other side would suffice for ID purposes ;)

    If it hasn't been played with then at this age probably between 10 & 11fpe, if it's running well then 11+ but well under stressed, I had a mk3 lovely rifle but a little to heavy for my liking !...

    The accuracy is superb if you can master the weight, I'd suggest you wanna bench rest it off a bean bag to get it set up and then work on your stances and holds !...

    Also as "Essex" said you need to get it chrono'd !...
