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.'

  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.

    I was talking to me mate today, about this FX, and he recon's he is going to get a 357magnum long barreled pistol, on his FAC, l said, they are banned, but he said, "o" no they are not, you have to have a butt fitted to them (bit like the rabbit stopper).....So l wonder if l can get me a fx:confused:

    No

    You can only have semi auto in .22 rimfire, or unless it's very low powered or uses a smoothbore barrel.
    The FX uses neither. :(

    So is my mate talking out of his backside.... or what....l don't know...lm very confused here, but he is adamant, that this can be done with the 357, and a 357 is a centre fire or is it a rim, or has he found a loophole in the law:confused:...All sounds abit dodgy to me

    Andy, I've been checking around and I can't see why we can't have a semi-auto airgun in this country (sure someone will prove me wrong), as long as it's below the 12ft/lb limit, but with anything needing an FAC I believe semi-auto is banned. Semi auto and pump action shotguns can only have the capacity for 3 cartridges...one in the breach and 2 in the tube, unless you go for a full FAC, in which case I believe 8 is the maximum. These on the videos clearly are well over that, so they are out of the question...a pity, because they do look very nice.

    The Gun Trade Association and the AMTA has agreed with the Home Office NOT to manufacture or import semi auto air rifles of 12 ft lbs or FAC.
    So no one imports them, you could try and buy one and see what happens. :confused:

    Thank you for your reply, Buzz, l know about the shot gun and if l put it on my fac, but as l have explained before, the reason l have a shotgun, is nothing to do with my love of shooting, it is a shame, that people that have proved themselves Tobe honest, cant have such a tool as this, l mean just imagine having that Fx in a field full of rabbits, with a night scope attached or even ratting...never mind ay...l'll do some more checks and let you know how l get on. thank you again:up:

    You can obtain a centrefire 357 Revolver (or any calibre,I suppose) as as long as you have a variation on your FAC for it and the firearm has a long (very) barrel and a fixed butt/arm support.This makes it as long as a carbine and thus would bring it under 'rifle' rules. The fact that the action is the same as a revolver handgun is irrelevant.
    However,the police authorities will NOT allow you to purchase one of these as a carbine-they want to know where they are, apparently.
    I would think they are only for range use in the great majority of cases.

    I have contacted FX complaining about not carrying the full range of their airguns in UK.
    I am after a gladiator FAC and i like to have big tanks so i have a few number of shots out in the field.

    They told me that they will make their distributors carry all of their airguns expect the semi autos, because of the law here in UK. They told me to wait another 1 and things will change. Well it has been more than 2 months now and nothing has changed.

    they are lovely guns, light and accurate and their videos are great too, i hope they do bring the gladiator back to UK so i can get mine.:D.....
