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.

    Hi everyone,

    My boss has brought what looks to be a pretty old BSA Airsporter .177 into the office ( see pic ) This came from an old friend of the family who shot all his life but sadly passed away this year.

    I have had a look over it and I cant read which Mark it is, its faded.
    It is a top loader with an underlever cocking action. Underneath by the trigger guard I can just make out a number that starts EE, which having a quick nose on the net maybe a 1959-1965 model.

    Does this seem correct ?
    From the pic does this seem correct ?
    Any ideas of value so I can tell him. I think he will ask me to sell it for the family.

    Thanks in advance

    Pete~

    Looks a very nice BSA Airsporter Mk2 .177 and the letters EE give the year of manufacture range as you have stated.


    Photo and info from Dale "The Professor"

    MK2 identifying features: Self opening tap at end of cocking stroke, flip up rearsight, two short lengths of dovetails for scope mounting, walnut three piece stock, no butt pad.

    That's the one John, your pic looks a little nicer than what is in front of me at the moment :)

    The bag looks original and smells old.

    I have read that a Mark V goes for about £120-£150, what about a MK2 ?

    Thanks

    Pete

    Mk1 and mk2 are apparently much better guns than later versions

    Any ideas of value chaps ? Be good to go back to my boss with a ballpark figure. Apparently the money from it will go to the widow. Thanks

    With the mk.1 and 2 condition is everything. But a ball park figure is £ 130 - £ 180.
