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.

  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.'

  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.

    Toy town trigger amongst many issues. I've had cap guns with better triggers. Very much built down to a price.

    Out of interest what do you like, seems to me any thread about a rifle even an oxspring has you shouting it down for one thing or another. I realise it’s a personal choice do you have someting YOU like .... :confused:
    Back to topic …. ...... ....................... :coffee:

    There's lots of guns I like. Most AA and most HW for example. Do you want people to put forth their negative comments on products or should this forum read like AG/AGW?

    Well I love my stealth. Very accurate, lightweight and a huge shot count between refills! Plus I can take it into the field and not worry about scratching it to.

    Problem with them, and not to go into the very early model issues is the owners that think they know how to tune them, then sell them on after. Its the tinkerers rifle and so there are a fair few fails in circulation, not that its impossible to fix.

    Had my stealth for many years and love it for its simplicity and ease for modding.Mine was a second hand dead dog when i first got it and after a few very easy mods its now a very accurate,reliable rifle with a massive shot count and i wouldn't part with it.Its take down capability also means i can just put it into my rucksack and away i go without any suspicious looks from people on public transport or the threat of being stopped by the bizzies when walking through a busy town centre on my way to get to my permission, the same probably could not be said if i walked through a busy town with a gun bag over my shoulder.

    I used to check my stealths zero by shooting a .177 pellet off a piece of wood at 45yards. They are a very good gun.

    I had one and you can either use it or you cant, i couldnt hit a barn door with it yet my nephew couldnt miss a thing, so its really upto you, are you prepared to spend your well earned cash for nothing? Ideally you need to try before you buy

    i would never buy one brand new,but if you can pic up a second hand one at a good price,with a few mods it can be a superb gun!
