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.

    '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.

    Top one is the chrome model -currently available from Umarex.

    Bottom the limited edition in steel finish from 2007.

    For information
    Not showing off....much.

    I think the nickel and wood model was / is the most expensive?

    Getting on really well. Been practicing after setting sights. Shoots about 10 mm high at 6 yards rested. Most of my cards are showing 49points rested so far. Need to paint the foresight.

    Hey all you 92FS owners!, Ive just found something out :eek:!.. If you are sick of your pistol fining high at 6-10 yards.. Ive found that if you replace the rear sight with a rear sight off a Walther CP88 they fit perfectly and are exactly the correct height when used with the standard 92FS front sight.. I mean bang on!. You can find a link here to purchase a cp88 rear sight from Chamber's at very little cost. Part number OS291 (for the Walther CP88). Here's the link :thumb:

    If you're on about the friendly forum comp' then I thought that the competition was STRICTLY for CO2 replica pistols only, no target pistols allowed. :eek:

    It will be when ive finished with it, a replica of a Artemis CP400.. A replica because im going to fit a grub screw in the rear sight.. originals ones don't have one, so mines not an original, so a replica of a CP400.. :shrug:


    I thinks you are all thinking, 'that looks like it can connect to a HPA tank using a micro-bore hose.. But the only hose I fiddle with, live upstairs at the saloon.. :cool:

    That tip about the rear sight is brilliant!

    I might be needing that next week when I get my new (to me) 92FS.

    @PBaz Barrett have you measured the difference in height between the 92 original and the 88?

    I am amazed that Umarex haven't spotted this and rationalised their part numbers to save costs.
    The daft thing is, from what I can see on Internet pictures, the 9mm version has a lower rear sight blade than the 4.5mm one anyway.
    So with the CP88 blade, it's appearance would be just that little bit closer to the original.
