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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.

Fx Dreamline Bottle-pup .22" Fac (already At Rfd Awaiting Sale)

    Good morning all, my .22" FAC FX Dreamline Bottle-Pup is for sale, with the original 500mm barrel and 480cc Carbon Fibre bottle.

    Price: I'd like to get £1,200 but might settle for less (RRP = £1,529.99) - would like a quick sale so I can order the replacement FX .22" FAC rifle.

    It's just under a year old, and ideal for those who want to quickly externally adjust their rifle from 11.5ft/lbs up to 30ft/lbs (plus fine-tuning of the hammer spring via Allen key once you dismount the stock). I can also share info from another AGF forum member who messaged me with instructions on how to tune up for more power "Together they have added between 6 and 10 ft lbs of power." -via three replacement parts.

    It comes in the FX compact cardboard box lined with eggshell foam, a JB3D fully adjustable butt-hook and the original FX butt-pad. Also one 18-shot magazine, the manual, and two JB3D-rings to enable clamping the barrel shroud to the 480cc Carbon Fibre bottle, should you wish to do that. For air filling you just need a hose with a (female) Foster connection.
    The muzzle has a knurled collar protecting the 1/2" UNF moderator thread.

    I reviewed this rifle in the Dec 2020 (see video) and Jan 2021 (see video) issues of Airgun World (click initial bold text for associated Flickr albums), and in the associated videos.

    Reason for sale: I'm after a different .22" FAC FX rifle with alternate barrel lengths, for more experimentation (and for further articles and videos of course).

    All the best, cheers. Russ

    ...(obviously the upper tip of the adjustable butt-hook is folded-back here).

    Ps. I just found the (unused) FX quick-fill adapter I got with the Bottle-Pup, so that's now included with the rifle... it's unused because my 1m fill hose already has a female QD.

    Good morning all, I'm keen to get the new FAC rifle, so am dropping the price to £1,100.

    First to respond = first to get the rifle, which is already at my RFD awaiting transfer to your RFD...
    Cheers. Russ

    Ok I'm keen to get my replacement FAC rifle for pest control / reviews / videos - so the price is now £1,050.

    This is a bargain folks, a superb compact/portable rifle externally adjustable from sub-12 to 30+ ft/lbs, and I've grouped five shots in a 5p-sized group at 50m with it.

    It's waiting at Ythanbank Field Sports Supplies (RFD) right now, to be sent to the RFD of your choice.
    Cheers. Russ

    Hmm I'll be honest I'm very surprised nobody's bought this first-class rifle already (or made me an offer). o_O

    Anyway it's still available - BUMP! :D

    Sadly @Andi Licious is sadly stuck in FAC/FAO limbo, which could apparently take many months to sort-out (though we both hope not).

    So he's kindly suggested if anyone else would like to buy this very cool FX FAC rifle in the meantime, I should accept...

    Cheers. Russ
