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.

    Not as far as I know mate. I've never asked but it's also never been offered to me either.

    Having just re-gained my air gun obsession and having read all of the forums regarding which springer would suit me best, the HW99 s will be my next buy so I’ll be keeping an eye on this thread. I’ve see them for anywhere between £200 and £240.
    The trouble is it would cost more than £40 in fuel to get to the cheapest offer.

    £210 sounds reasonable to me. (My last one cost £200, but that was 3 years ago). You might find one cheaper elsewhere, but if you can't collect it in person, there's transfer fees to add...

    To be honest, I enjoy reading the forum nearly as much as I enjoy the plinking. There’s a wealth of knowledge on here and I’ve not read anything other than solid personal advice from anyone. Whether everyone agrees with it or not is a different matter.

    I ended up buying parts and rebuilding my own one and luckily it worked out cheaper which is not always the way but I did have some spare parts already
    But as you say this board has a wealth of knowledge and great members who will help you out.
    Instead of buying a new one look for one that has already been fettled with and fires a lot better than a new one.

    I would also advise dropping your spring to someone like @shauny to get a guide and top hat made. Will work wonders even with a new rifle. TBH probably make even more sense with a new rifle. :thumb:

    Yes, think of it as a down payment on peace of mind in the future, flowers and a proper seeing too works as well :thumb:

    It work like this: "Babe, I'm going to take you to lunch and then give you a right old seeing too when we get home....................Oh by the way, seeing as we're out, I just as well pick this OLD gun up"

    Only add flowers as well if your really TTP, or buying a Steyr :nana:
