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.

First Time I’ve Owned A Beretta

    Picked this up today and I can’t believe in all my years of air pistol owning I’ve never had a Beretta. And what a weighty lump is is. £100 bought me this, Beretta case, 29 CO2 capsules and a tin of pellets. The only niggle is that the Medallion is missing on the right grip. Anyone know where I can get one from?

    Congratulations on such a fine purchase, a bargain ! Looks stunning with the real wood grips. :)

    If you don't manage to track another medallion down it might be possible to remove the remaining one and take a mould of that one and that way you could cast another one from that mould.

    I have often mulled over getting a 92fs, what sort of reliability could I expect? I known that they shoot high, and there is an alternative front sight on the 'bay, are there any other little foibles to owning one?
    There seems to be a good sized fan-base for them. :thumb:

    Ive had mine a while,its the nickel with wood grips as in this thread,i also have the Walther cp88 same finish,They seem to be reliable,but I do have four other pistols I use also,They are very well made,the Beretta is a heavy gun,and it is accurate,i haven't changed the sights,being open sights I found findog the aim point was the way to tame the beretta,I bought extra magazines,i have 12 in total,but they fit both guns,normally I shoot all 12 mags to one co2 bottle.

    I have the same pistol but in the BB version as it's more realistic, with blow-back, drop-out magazine, etc. (the 92 A1M, or whatever it's called). Like the 92FS, the sights of my pistol are inaccurate (it shoots low) and so I searched t'internet for ways to modify them. That's how I discovered the Beretta web site, which I've pasted a link for in my post above. Beretta sell an adjustable rear sight and a replacement front sight to suit, but I never bothered trying as I think it would take a lot of skill and trail and error to machine out the existing sights and replace them to shoot accurately. If these pistols were better quality and longer lasting, rather than being disposable toys, then I would think about going to the effort and also replacing the grips with genuine ones in a nice material.

    I have an Umarex .177 92FS and would recommend it. Very well made and easy to use. They do shoot slightly high and the sights would benefit from a dot, but that's only a minor niggle that you can adjust for. Make sure the screw that holds the forend on is tight.

    The Beretta is a lump-but I seem to have a few.

    Be gentle when loading the co2.
    Use the screw just to position the capsule.
    Then pierce with the lever.

    Many get bent lever base plates when too much screw and force are used.
    I've had a few sh ones that needed this fixing.

    Are the older ones the glossy 'blued' finish like the older 586's? Are they a better example to have, or are the newer painted models the one to go for?

    They are far from the same pistols mate. These old non blow back Beretta's are in a different league when it comes to reliability and accuracy. These Umarex 92FS pistols have rifled barrels too. Way better to shoot. But not as realistic as you say. But when it comes to our co2 informal comp on here, these pistols would beat your blowback model into the weeds. :thumb:

    The Umarex/ Taiwan bb Beretta is a nice replica but mine was hopelessly inaccurate.
    Shot way too high or low cant remember which.
    Internet said the white dots on sights were wrong?

    Sold it to a chap who loved it.

    Must thank you for the link. Ordered this morning a set of the genuine nickel ones for €17.40 delivered by DHL.
    Also a set of stainless steel grip screws.
