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.

    '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.

Kalibrgun Cricket 2. Anyone?

    They've arrived and are shipping now from BAR. Has anyone got one yet? Are you planning to get one?

    The main Kalibrgun product page is here. The .177 and .22 are getting CZ barrels and the .25 gets an LW. Standard length is 68cm with a 45cm barrel.

    There's an unboxing video on YouTube:



    The same guy does a 60 yard shooting test here:



    Accuracy looks to be as good as the previous model with the major change being the repositioning of the cocking lever to the front. On the face of it that would be a good thing but in the second video the cocking action looks a little... clunky, shall we say. I hope that's just a tight fitting pellet because it looks a lot easier in the first video when he cocks it without the mag in place.

    The ones pictured on the bar website still have the cocking lever at the back?

    Yes the cocking action does sound like it's a bit 'industrial'.o_O

    Been searching used for a while now not knowing what I really wanted but the new cricket looks great. I could be tempted to buy new , but will wait for a few reviews on that cocking action, it looks like hard work compared to my hw100.

    I really liked my mini Carbine but felt it lacking a few details for it’s RRP price point ,couldn’t fault it’s accuracy though , the Argus is more in my radar right now

    Just Spoke to BAR
    They are not stocking this one as they think the others will sell better, Pre Orders only
    I think this is the best one out the lot
    Classic look but with (hopefully) a decent cocking mech in the right location
    Wanna see a few more reviews first

    Hopefully the Argus reviews will be along soon. The product shots make it look front-heavy with the scope that far forward but it could be an illusion.

    Yeah, I like the look of the Argus.
    Not bad prices too - especially now AGT have gone silly with theirs .

    Inventory at BAR (from their facebook page). I didn't even know the Argus 60 existed. Not sure the long barrel is much use for sub-12.

    I have the mk1 cricket and it's insanely accurate, I've only shot up to 50 yards so far and I'm getting 20p groups ( when I concentrate) I'm getting about 170 ish shots from the .177 from 200bar down to 80 when it drops of the reg.
    The cocking lever does take a bit of getting used to and putting the mag in can be a bit fiddlerly but you soon get used to it.
    I would would recommend this rifle to anyone willing to give a bullpup a go.

    I know mate, I looked at it months ago and like you saw the price from Europe. I’m sure bar had it at £699 on Facebook. I’ll check as I could be wrong. And I will send you the H&K to look at, been pre occupied with the rifles!
