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.

    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.

Hello. And A Question Of Course...

    Hello all

    I'm new. I’ve recently picked up an air pistol after a lengthy hiatus (haven't had one since I was 16 and I don't want to talk about how long ago that was...).

    It's a Crosman 2240 and I'm really enjoying customising and doing a bit of plinking. However, as is alway the case I guess, I’m now looking at bigger and better. So I found my way here...

    I’ll try not to carry on with my life story, but I’d been looking at the Umarex 850 M2, then got distracted by the Hammerli 800 Blackout (mainly as it's cheaper and will save me on the gas also).

    But, as I moved over to Berlin a few years back, I’m restricted by German law, basically everything needs a federal stamp and I can only enjoy around half the power you guys can. This means I'm also limited in what I can buy.

    So the Blackout is not available to me, but the 800 is, does anyone on the forum have experience of adding a decent silencer (or indeed an actual backdraft), I can't seem to find details on the barrel, wondered if an adaptor would work or if I should be seeking out someone who can thread it for me (once I check legality of course).

    Oh, and I want to keep the noise down as I'm shooting on a small plot of land were the sprog will be napping and the dog hiding (hates noise).

    Thanks in advance!

    I’d recommend looking at Sportwaffen Schneider as they usually offer great prices and they’re from Germany, so no problems with power output etc.

    I’m a Weihrauch fan so I’m going to recommend a HW rifle (they shoot lovely at 7,5 joule).

    Good luck and have fun :)!

    Hello and welcome . The search function on here opens a vast vault of information going back to about 1933 when as teenagers seamaster , cloverleaf , tadpole and a few others of the league of extraordinary gentlemen communicated their ideas via string , yoghurt pots and notes on parchment.


    No , sorry , seriously mate the 850 magnum is a rifle i nearly got and is a very good co2 rifle i believe. I have no knowledge of the blackout but there maybe info in the search . Happy airgunning pal .

    Thanks for the tip! I'll check them out. I'm keeping it exclusively Deutsch just in case. Mainly as I was alarmed to find that the airsoft guns I nearly shipped with me would have had me up on firearm charges

    Haha, thank you! I did have a look through old posts, but couldn't find anything relating to the Hammerli 800 and the specifics of the silencer. You're right though, there's some serious volume there, so perhaps I did miss out...

    Thanks!

    Have you considered a Feinwerkbau 65 or 80 ?
    There's a great site in Germany for used air rifles and pistols - Egun.de :thumb:

    I haven't to be honest, I'm a bit swamped by my options. I'll go look and thanks for the recommend!
    And also egun, I knew nothing about that.

    That's the rest of my day gone :)
