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.

    Ummmm, Logun gave us FX? I think you'll find that FX rifles were designed by Fredrik Axelsson and built by his Swedish company - FX. Some FX rifles were marketed and branded in this country as Logun or Webley. The Webley Raider was built in Birmingham under license from FX.

    The best-known Logun was the S16 - marketed as British-made but allegedly knocked out by a variety of eastern european factories.

    You may have a point about the "corean and chinese clones" though...

    Fredrik Axelsson did design the Axor concept, first rifle was the original Axor, at that time sold by Webley, hence the Webley Axor
    That time
    Fredrik was workning with a company named CNC Process AB

    Then there was a argument between him and the company's owner and Fredrik quit to found his own company and he hired some workers from the old company.
    Everything ended up in court.

    When things was settled the CNC AB could keep the rights for the Axor trademark together with the original rifle. Fredrik was however granded the right to evolve the Axor concept into his on new design.
    This new rifle became the FX2000.

    CNC Process AB, now without designer, sold their part of the settlement to Logun in exchange for the right to be marketed by them. Logun made some changes to the design (the bolt) and began to sell this model as the Logun Axor (and the 2-shot) Gemini

    The Logun Company then started to sell new FX-design rifles under LOGUN name as the CNC Process AB was not intrested in developing new models after Axor
    And it basicaly gives the FX a good market positions and well developed distribution network,

    there is no @straight-forward@ story ever,

    all patents, used by logun and webley now helping other companies to make their own great guns

    yeah,

    Webley raider was also designed by Fredrik Axelsson, some after the Axor, but before the FX2000
    and the design was sold to Webley to rise up some cash to run the
    PRE-Charge AB company (later become FX, after the succesfull FX2000 model)

    Logun mk1/mk2/professional are futher developments of axsor gemini design made by logun itself,
    So nothing to deal with FX as well as Eagle and S16.
    Another discussion is going about Logun Solo design. Some sourcess address it.s design to Logun engeneers and says that FX typhoon/t12 was made of it as a part of IP exchange between two companies.

    Rather you than me :p


    Interesting, thanks - didn't know that :)



    Just as with other "lower end" British rifle "manufacturers", it appears that Logun sourced rifles from various places and rebranded them to sell on. Some Logun branded rifles are definitely just rebadged FX guns (the Solo and Gladiator spring to mind), while the Logun Axsor looks sufficiently different to any other FX derivitives to corroborate the story above.

    I think the Logun Mk1 and Mk2 were based fairly heavily on FX designs (the valve gear and general construction, if not the mag system), but I'm not sure where they were built or by whom. The S16 was apparently sourced from Serbia, and I'm not sure about the PCR-1 (I think this was sold under the Logun name at one point) or the Eagle; however an Eastern European origin seems feasible.

    I'm not aware of any connection between Logun and Brocock, Hatsan or any of the Korean offerings, though.

    Towards the end Logun, Webley and AGS were all pretty much one in the same; cynically flogging a lot of arguably overpriced products of questionable quality into the marketplace before being wound up and disappearing; along with any warranty or after-sales services they should have offered to keep their products going :rolleyes:

    While not a huge fan of FX, IMO the products originating from them are the only Logun-branded items worth having. Each to their own, though :)

    Light, 100 shots per fill, the ability to drop power to 9 or 6 FPE by the flick of a lever, what's not to like ?

    This is what mine does for me (images of dead stuff, hence linky instead of piccy):
