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.

  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.

Help on identifying an air rifle

    I spotted this the other day while having a mooch at my brothers house, and I'm at a loss as to what make it is.



    It has a quick fill system, seems reasonable quality, is a single shot, has a rear mounted bolt, and has the scope mounted onto dovetails in the top of the action. The pellet probe was hollow with an external o ring. I have my own ideas, but anyone know for sure? Sorry for the lack of detail of the action.

    Thanks

    John

    The shape of the pistol-grip suggests some type of Theoben. Do you have any close-up's of the action Nuff?

    I dont think its a Theo, allthough it does look like a Theo stock.
    What I can see of the action looks more like a Daystate??

    Got any close ups nuff?

    That's the only picture I took, but the bolt and scope mounts were wrong for a rapid, so I'm not sure, the bolt exits from the rear of the action and the probes sealed by an o ring.


    My thoughts were along the lines of daystate, but I don't have a clue which model. A fair bit of brass used on it as well.

    That's what veered me in that direction Titch but the rear-mounted bolt had me stumped.

    I almost wondered if its home made by a talented engineer, I don't know what it is though, the stock was poorer quality than the action so it could have been restocked.

    I can't get any more pictures easily, its not mine and I don't think its for sale, I'm curious more than anything as I can usually identify a rifle if I have a good look at it.
