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.

    Thank you.

  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 Got Given One Of These Today ....

    An A9000S Made by JSC Anics Group...

    IMG_20200704_224529_5.jpg
    It's Russian made and licensed by Beretta, it's a .177 and there's a couple of magazines (22 shot) an L shaped steel rod and a brass probe thing ...

    The trigger is really heavy (can it be adjusted?) and the front sight is a bit loose but shouldn't be hard to fix ...

    Are they any good?

    Is it worth stripping/rebuilding? Are there any part kits available for them?

    Can it be converted from CO2 to HPA?

    What should it chrono at? -I haven't had a chance to yet, but I'm guessing it's not going to be at all quick (and slower in winter which is why I wonder about HPA as it's less affected)

    Thanks in advance for any and all assistance/advice ;)

    Be well :thumb:

    Nice, I nearly bought it's older brother, the SKIF A3000 back in the day, already owning an Anics A101M. Trigger pull on these is hard, because of the magazine belt, although a strip and lube of the magazine might help a bit. Power wise, should be ~4ft.lbs, well the SKIF was, and this is a SKIF in Beretta skin.

    Well I've cleaned the barrel (full of disgusting muck, now replaced with the smell of ballistol and a gleam that wasn't there before) and I guess the next thing is to strip and lube the mags ....

    Thanks for the information (it's given me step 2) :up:

    Be well :thumb:

    Nice pistols, hard to come by nowadays tbh.

    I have it’s older brother the Anics skiff 3000. 182E8A47-2215-4931-8D14-9EA194F9B20B.jpeg
    Great guns but are prone to mag jams.

    I recently opened up my mags & give them a good clean & soaked the parts in oil. They now work great but I can guarantee they will stick again in future if not looked after.

    As for parts they’re like hens teeth.

    I need some valve seals as mine is leaking but there’s some good people on this forum who have kindly offered to help out:thumb:

    Power is not the best they, do around 360fps on a good day

    The triggers on these guns are heavy because of all the springs they put in them & the way it works is when you cock the gun, rather than there being a pin valve at the back of a co2 valve block & hammer these push from the front i.e barrel end forcing the barrel to push against the mag the mag then pushes on the valve from the front, out comes the co2.

    Enjoy your new pistol :thumb:

    I just squirted a good amount of ballistol into both mags and they now slide much, much easier than they did before (I have a feeling this is going to work better than when it left the factory if I keep this up) :up:

    Thanks for the help ;)

    The Anics A101M I have works in a similar way, when you pull the trigger the barrel is pushed forward against a spring, and picks up a BB through a hole, then when the trigger breaks, it slams back into the valve or a puff of gas. Soviet simplicity!
