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.

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.

    Highly recommend any of the crosman range (22xx/ratty) as there are so many options for custom parts and also they can still be shot as you modify/experiment.

    Some of the Chinese stuff is great to learn on, now people will go up in the air, but apparently you can buy tuning kits for the B2, start out with a crap new gun and make something semi reasonable from it. A B2 can be picked up from under £40 new, just have to shop around a bit, the problem is the tuning kits will cost nearly as much as the gun. The XS78 or XS79 offer precharged (ok with CO2) shooting at cheap prices too, lots of tuning mods for those, ask Jetski!

    I would second the Crosman range, can be picked up cheap very easy to work, parts a easy to order but things can cost a fair few pound once you start

    WOW!!! the 2250 looks amazing! whats it shooting at, at the moment? can you easily get them to full power?
    and this may be a rude question (excuse me if it is) but... roughly what you spent on them?

    The 2250 is spot on, it is shooting at 9.3 ft/lbs which is ample for what i need it for. Tons of shots out of the paint ball tank, i am very pleased how it has turned out. I'm not too sure how much i have spent on it, too much really but it's a one off and i have enjoyed doing it up myself

    Andyz1000 is the main man on here for ratties and did a guide

    another vote for the crosman 22xx range or the 1377 pistol but prepare your credit card for a pasting
    have modded quite a few crosmans in my time and spent a bloody fortune on them but its all good fun
    these are my current modded crosmans
