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.

    It's quite an unusual set up.
    i was interested in the Leyla and didn't want to buy through BAR, anti tamper and and all that.
    i wanted to ask a couple of questions so contacted Edgun, the only possible way to do this was via the forum. I did ask Ed if he could be contacted any other way and didn't get a response.
    i know some main stream manufacturers are difficult to get hold of sometimes but when your spending over 1k on a new gun it's a little off putting that the only means of contact with the manufacturer is via a forum.

    I had one reply from Ed on here via PM and a 2min conversation via FB with his Mrs then it all went dead .... I didn’t want AT either so looked at the options of either buying one from the show next month from Ed or shipping one in myself from a European supplier ..... but my last thoughts about doing this were: If I am having this much trouble trying to contact him to give him my money what chance would I have if it needed to be returned for one reason or another? (As being an import I don’t think BAR would fix it? Or maybe they would?) ...... I had a few reply’s from Airgunheaven in Netherlands who have most Edgun products in stock and they are quite happy to ship for 25 euro to the UK .... they have no AT but like other dealers they fit the Huma themselves so you have to wait but again ..... so for my own peace of mind I eventually ordered one from BAR and all being well it should be here sometime today

    Seriously, don't worry about the potential need to repair a Leshiy, they are as easy as a TX200 to strip down and re seal.
    Seal sets are available from XTX and Huma.
    Home service appears to be part of the Edgun ethos, insomuch as Ed has also done a series of videos of how to do it all.
    If you decide it's a keeper, then the purchase of the Huma regulator tester is also a worthwhile investment.

    Edit: Darren at XTXair has published a very good video on servicing the Huma reg.

    I don’t mind stripping it down myself but for the money it costs I would take advantage of the shop warranty until it runs out ....I don’t use my guns much at the moment so I will never wear any of them out :( I am only shooting in my garden

    He soon will be :D
    The good news about having an official UK importer is that the Leshiy and other models will be more openly available. And hopefully more instantaneous.

    We may see a benefit price wise too (doubtful though).

    I do have to say though that my experience getting one from BAR were good.

    Why do BAR fit anti tamper to these rifles? It's not law. And if they are so easy to strip and work on, surely most people would remove any anti tamper?

    I believe AT is something the Gun Trade Association came up with so guessing BAR fit it after modifying these guns as they are part of the gun trade association.

    Steyr UK come in for a load of grief as they've chosen not to join the association (guessing you have to pay) - fair play to them for not giving into to bullying

    I'm contemplating which calibre to get.
    .20 if an option, or .22.
    Either way I want a .25 barrel in addition at some point so obviously the AT with have to come off. I presume this won't be much of a job. ????????

    The AT is a pointless addition if they are advertised/sold as being multi calibre (by changing a barrel).

    Neither does an ounce of gold, but it has timeless value all the same, and if you gel with it, you won't even think about the cost.
