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.

    These poorly presented air rifles appeared all over the place at one time at giveaway prices.
    I bought one at a farmers market sale for the price of a box of junk (along with a GAT)
    I saw this and wondered if it was of any interest. This is part 8 because it has links to
    parts 1-7

    the best thing you can do to a b3 to improve it would be to paint it light brown ,and use it as a cricket bat.
    although most newish chineeee guns are not half bad,and dont seem to need as much sorting as a new hw to
    get them shooting nice, the b3 isnt one of them.:(

    The Chinese make a lot of stuff, they cannot be ignored, it might even surprise you
    just what you own that they have made (bamboo underpants anyone?) they will
    learn and train just like the Japanese did after WW2.

    Being a member of the Chinese air gun forum I'm wearing two hats so to speak I'm no lover of Chinese ethics or the smiling face of capitalism/communism or their vast stealing of patients of firearms namely Crosman to name just one.The plain fact is they sell rifles that are getting better and better all the time yes some of the early stuff they turned out was truely diabolical but the stuff now leaving the Chinese factories is good quality most of it is ripped off from other manufacturers patient.Quality control used to be a swear word in China but not any more the west demands better quality and they are getting it but everything has a price and is made to a price. HW used to be the benchmark of quality for air rifles but not anymore we have all bought one that needed totally stripping degunkinking of crap from their insides and fettling before functioning as they should. Why is that because of poor work ethics and terrible quality control that word in Germany used to be a by word of excellence not any more. China have learned the hard lessons of the past and are moving on into the future with their products the comments of I won't buy Chinese well good luck with that one because they make everything and every single item sold from China has been ripped off from other companies patients in the west/far east with total disregard for said patient like them or hate them they are here to stay it's not crap it's copied and made cheaper to make money

    The Chinese (although they can be accused of much plagiarism) have really stepped up their game regarding manufacturing quality of late IMO.

    I have bought some cheap fishing rods lately that have turned out to be very good quality and something that a large brand name wouldn't have trouble endorsing.

    The guns do seem to be getting better slowly too.

    The b3 is dog Censored in more ways than one, but then again I've heard they cost £3.50 each to stick on a container in China so what's to be expected....

    On the other hand the remington express punches way above its price tag and the new Remington sabre in its sporter stock looks stunning in my opinion.
