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.

    To clear this text box, click on the 'X' in the top right-hand corner.

    I was, as usual, trawling t'interweb for the next gun to get some attention from my lathe. I have been thinking about getting another HW, possibly the 98, or maybe a little co2 Uzi that I could make some aftermarket parts for.:cool:

    Then I saw this gun, and less than a minute later I had my wallet out and had placed the order!:eek:
    It looks cool, its a springer, its compact and it looks cool! They're limited to 7.5j as they're german imports, but I'm sure there's something can be done. My hope/wish/bed-wetting desire is that I can get it up around 10fpe and still be able to get a decent enough group for close range hunting.

    The worst part is I'll have to wait a week to get it!:(

    Its a Baikal MP-514k eight shot repeating .177 springer. Baikals are usually solidly built, so at the worst it will be a fun garden gun, but I have high hopes!

    Of course its ugly! That's the point!

    You know when something's that bad, it goes full circle and comes out good? This is that gun! I must admit, I had been looking at small black guns with sticky out bits previously, so maybe I'd become desensitised. And its true I'd ordered and paid before I came to my senses, but it'll be the only one at the club!

    erm...... That's a good thing, right?

    Of course it'll be the only one at the club!!! No-No!!! Hang on now, I am not being fair, it's your money, it's your decision.....................it's your reputation! I man come on now, bullpups are not always bugly, they can have some redeeming features, like this one for instance..

    http://www.acguns.co.uk/page204.html

    That thing you have invested your hard earned in is so feckin' ugly, you wont have to actually shoot it at anything, just wave it around a bit, everything with a pulse within 500 yards of you will just fall over and die!

    You will go down in history as the man who invented fugliness fallout!!!:roflmao:

    And there I was thinking you had some taste. Perhaps you can make aftermarket parts to make it look like an air rifle? A mask maybe?

    Looks a bit short to me. I'd check the barrel length to make sure its legal before tampering with the power output.

    Theres no minimum overall or barrel lengths in sub 12 air rifle and pistols. FYI the overall is 25.6" and the barrel is 16.8".

    That's what I love about this forum:

    1. the way your "mates" all chip in to encourage and assist in whatever way they can

    and

    2. The absolute unity of opinion, everyone thinks that's one ugly fecker you've got there.

    I feel all warm and snuggly.

    My . that really is ugly!
    Out of interest what was the damage to the back pocket?
    Also, You are correct in that there is no written rules regarding length but there are some "unwritten" rules which sugest it is best to keep them in the same limits as fire arms.
    I.e. barrel minimum 12" and overall 24".

    If you're going to question the gene pool I was spawned in, I'll have you know I'm not originally from Norfolk, I'm from Fenland stock. Cripes, did I just admit that in public!

    So that's everyone with an HW97k, TX200 HC and pretty much every other springer fooked then?

    Dont be silly! The unwritten rule is "If it's designed to be fired like a pistol, then its a pistol". Lets not throw more confusion and misinformation at an already struggling sport.;)

    Why would they be screwed? They are over 24" overall.
