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.

    Hello there,

    I am planning to buy Webley Alecto MK5 .177. Have read a lot of good reviews for it. The problem that I have so far is that I am unable to make a difference between MK5 and the previous versions. There are many sites selling it with different price tags but most of them do not mention the version they are selling. I would like to know the differences, so I can recognise it (especially I want to be sure I will receive the correct gun even it was sold as MK5).
    I have found a question here for version MK3 (the guy received MK1 instead of MK3), but nothing for MK5.

    Think the mk5 is the zoraki which as silver internals and the 177 zoraki comes with a threaded barrel for silencer, mk1 Webley as no threaded barrel , and silver internals mk2 and 3 black internals, then 4 and 5 zorakis with silver internals,

    i heard all mark1s were silver internals then they had loads of returns due to the weld line splitting due to people over pumping so the mark 2 was revised and with black internals

    Thank you for the provided info. MK3 is with black internals not sure what happens after this. It also has the threaded barrel for silencer. Also `Zoraki HP-01` seems to be the old name for Webley Alecto MK1.

    Still digging ...

    Zoraki, silver internals, threaded barrel (but I’ve since fitted an ultra longer barrel so the original is in the case

    I have a .22 Mk1 Alecto and a .177 Mk5. I never knew there was a difference in the colour of the internals, so than you for that information. As I understand it, from the Mk3's onwards, but not all, have a threaded barrel to take an adaptor to fit a moderator. I have looked into the possibility of fitting a new threaded barrel to the .22, but at £88 barrel only and £104 with silencer, neither are on my must have list at the moment.

    Without the moderator, both pistols are noisy, and if I were my neighbour, I wouldn't want to listen to that all afternoon in the back garden. Fitting the moderator quietens down the report to a phut and the pellet hitting my carpet backed back stop makes more noise. Both of my pistols are accurate, and if I could find a decent pistol scope I'm sure the accuracy would be maintained past the 20 yards I have at home.

    I don't know about anyone else, but the pistol grips can, and are for me, quite uncomfortable after a while. I can't shoot offhand for very long due to arm and shoulder injury, so I've found bag resting, and wearing a shooting glove makes things a lot more comfortable for me. If anyone has a lead to after market wooden grips I would be grateful.

    Here's a 30 pellet group shot yesterday bag rested using .177 Mk5 Alecto, HW 2x20 scope, HW moderator, QYS Streamlined 4.49 @20 yards.
