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.

    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.'

  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.

    After not getting any reply from Edgun himself regarding buying a Leshiy at the show and much searching I found myself a used Leshiy ... it was miles away so I thought I’d take a chance and get it posted ..... after many hours of discussion about condition and price ....I sent some funds over with PayPal and the fella says he is going to pack it up now and send it today so I get it by the weekend :thumb: ....5 mins later .... the deal is off and he returns my payment with a couple of pictures of damage to the gun! ..... .. maybe someone up stairs is telling me not to buy one :(

    Did you see pics before, during the discussions? If not, could there be something dodgy?

    Fair play to the guy for refunding though, just sounds like he may have sold it locally for more? (Happened to me before)

    Must be frustrating but it is feasible that he noticed some damage on packing it up, just keep looking as it seems you really want one. The heart wants what it wants!

    It was only minor damage .... I doubt he sold it locally for more .... We were still discussing it at 12.30 this morning which is when I sent the money over ... he went to box it up in the case and sent me some pics of some dings in it .... no doubt I could have argued and got some money off but he refunded my money straight away .... it wasn’t the deal of the century .... I can ship in a used one from the Netherlands but I might just bite the bullet and order a new one from BAR today

    Instant refund without discussion. That's not how a normal seller would respond imo. That to me is a seller who for whatever reason suddenly decided he doesn't want to complete on that deal, be it price, regret, whatever.

    As you say, sounds like a decent fella on the face of it, but as @hughlle says, doesn't seem like a normal response just to refund the money (although I can understand it at the same time).

    Good luck, I think you’ll be lucky as they are selling well. Let’s hope they give a little.

    Re the other purchase - as you say, probably For the best.

    No chance of any discount there. Been there done that.
    Having said that, they're very good to deal with.
    I'll be having another at some point and it will be new from BAR.

    Even free delivery would be something... do they send it as a rifle for £25.99 or pistol sized package for £12?

    Mustn't be too harsh on the seller; maybe he hadn't spotted the damage beforehand.

    I had an occasion once when I sold a stock and I hadn't noticed the slight damage. The buyer came back to me once he'd received it and gave me grief about not telling the truth etc and being misleading - which is alien to me - and said in his view the stock wasn't worth what he had paid so he wanted a refund of about 30% etc etc. I said no, no refund, if you think it's not in the condition as described and it's my fault then send it back and I will give you a full refund and pay your return postage. Once you start haggling about the amount of damage and how visible or crucial it is and what it would cost to fix, it becomes a never ending minefield.

    So I would have some sympathy with the seller, if he found it wasn't in good nick then the best thing is to pull out of the deal.
