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.

    I bought one a couple of weeks back.
    Observations...
    Really comfortable in the hand and surprisingly small feeling.
    Trigger is very nice. A little heavier than I like but not bad. Lovely short pull.
    The blowback is quite strong and feels great but it does eat through capsules.
    Magazine feels good though a couple of times it's been reluctant to properly latch. Not delved into this further yet.
    The lock on empty feature is great. It feels how you'd expect a real one to feel.
    The tear down process is a little fiddly and not documented in the manual. Basically you have to partially cock it to get the take down lever back into place. To take it apart you need to remove the magazine, rotate the takedown lever then prise off the plate just behind the lever (has 15 stamped on it). The barrel unit then slides forward. Reassembly is the reverse but until you partially cock the gun the takedown lever is locked. There's not much to be gained from takedown in terms of barrel cleaning - easier done on the fun in the locked slide position.

    Accuracy is ok. It doesn't like plastic BBs at all and the Accupel Copper coated BBs jam on occasion and misfire. Not tried it with steel BBs but apparently they're much better. I'm getting 2" groups at 6m using copper coated BBs. I suspect steel ones may be better.

    For what it costs it's really enjoyable to use and a bit different to the normal rack back slide.

    Just BBs (which I'm not a fan of due to ricochets).

    The toggle is brilliant. My favourite looking pistol for 50 years!

    I absolutely love this little gas hungry Luger P08. Nice in the hand, great blowback and relatively accurate for plinking.

    I have the Gletcher version, and can say that accuracy is on a par with most similar gbb pistols, and I would not call it `gas hungry` wild bill..... I get three full magazines from one co2, that`s sixty shots ,with blow back. I call that OK.

    I only get two full magazine Pete with it dropping off real quick. But if I just put the real number of rounds in I get three maybe four mags. :up:

    When stripping and re-assembling I found that simply putting a slight amount pressure on the end of the barrel allows the action to traverse rearwards enough to unlock or lock the take down lever. :thumb:
