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.

  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.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    I've had very limited experience but the trigger felt nice, clean cocking action, build looked good and was very accurate.

    Cannot comment on long term but really seemed nice and personally I'd happily take a gamble at one.

    There are purists who say they arnt as good as the origionals but from what ice seen they would be hard to match

    From the conversation i had,i think they may have gone out of Business.They arent the thumbhole version but for the price they are going for they look awesome. Dont know how much they were when they came out but theyre now over £200 cheaper than the supposed retail price.
    Cheers,Stu.

    i had one from wighill. Very accurate,very quiet with a decimeater on,but no gauge,no safety and i just couldnt settle with the single shot after multishots,things you take for granted till you dont have them.Probably the best finish on a rifle action i have ever seen, and stock was gorgeous.Cheers

    That is a nice gun, a very nice gun

    I think I may buy one just on the looks, I'm arty rather than practical.

    Now I know what Fozz meant he told me collecting air guns will become addictive, this may well become my new art collecting hobby...

    a guy had one from new. thought it was a little low on power so brought it to us to put over the chrono at 3000psi it was 10ft after 25 shots went up to 11.2 there is no reg in these guns. the customer had us make a reg and fit it for him now he gets 11.8 from 3000psi and over 85 shots consistant

    Hogan Ripleys are nothing to do with Ripley Rifles made by Steve Wilkins.

    Steve is still going strong and will make you a gun to order.

    One of the nicest pcps I've shot and I would buy one over an s410. I had a .22 and is very smooth to cycle , the trigger was very nice, it was light and extremely well balanced. Also it was very quiet.
    Shot count from a 200bar fill was about 100 shots.
    Downsides- no safety, no gauge both of these you don't need.

    They are very underrated in my opinion , it's essentially a logun with some ripley input with regards to the valve system I think.
    It was designed for hft hence accuracy and balance.

    Rowan engineering do a multishot conversion for it aswell
