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.

    Weirauch only make one PCP the HW100 family, doesn't look like one to me, but the photo isn't that clear. If you're thinking of buying, you really do need to know whether it's FAC or not. You and the seller could be in deep stuff if you were to buy it and you don't have a FAC.

    your pic is not very clear but i think mattyts is right, not likely to be F A C. if it is an older model there would be a set screw power adjuster on right side, if you are thinking of buying it is wise to check out with chrono so its a legal purchase.

    thanks for the advise about the FAC part, and yeah i think your right about it being a Titan Manitou does any body know anything about them, the guy says it has had hardly any use and he will sell it with the scope gun bag large divers tank with the air couplings for 500, would it be worth it if it is what it is? and he said something about a power adjustment screw behind trigger?????
    thanks john

    Yup :up:

    The Titan is basically what became Falcon, so is very similar in construction to the FN series.

    IMO the gun pictured would be worth £250-300 if absolutely mint, less if the owner's been playing with the muzzle energy and it's over the top. These are somewhat notorious for being tinkered with as they're pretty easy to adjust.

    If the bottle is of a similar age to the gun it'll be low pressure and most likely out of test, so in this case is pretty much worthless.

    Definitely not worth 500 sheets unless it comes with a free S400 :p

    And if it is on an FAC ticket, it can't be converted back to non FAC so then worth 150 at best if you have an FAC of course. also if its old has it been serviced as the seals are more than likely due for replacement and won't last too much longer if at all.

    Gun only £250 top if excellent. Probably nearer £200. It's fairly old and much newer and better stuff is available at £300. If tank is 300 bar and tested then it's worth £150 or so. If it's old, untested, and 207 bar it's worth nothing. If it's FAC it's worth much less.

    If the barrel is over 24 inches long can it not be detunned I just took this of the Basc know your Airgun law page
    Conversion not to affect classification – changing an air weapon’s power
    The wording of Section 7(2) of the Firearms (Amendment) Act 1988 is complex, but in essence once airweapons are prescribed as ‘specially dangerous’ they cannot be back converted and remain in theirrelevant categories (Section 1 & 5) regardless of what is done to them other than de-activation ordestruction.
    However the only exception is for airguns (smoothbore air weapons) or for air rifles which have barrels in excess of 24 inches in length. These are the only types of air gun that may be converted back below 12 ft lbs legally.

    thanks for that guys, the main reason i was interested was the fact that i thought for the good and charging equipment in a all in one deal for 500 might not be to bad even tho its the top of my budget. does anyone know a similar deal, as getting into PCP shooting can be expensive with having to buy charging equipment??
    thanks john
