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.

  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.

    About 10 years ago, I received three pistols as a gift. One of them, an air pistol has been sitting it is box since I got it. It is a Morini 162E. I know nothing about it except that it is a competition PCP in .17. I will probably sell it here to someone that will use it. Does anybody know anything about them or use them?

    Very nice pistol, it’s the electronic version I think, should be a switch on the grip. Can’t tell from the photos but expect it’s the air version, think they also did a Co2 at one time. I would check the batteries haven’t leaked if it’s been sitting unused for sometime. Not sure of new price now, but an expensive pistol for sure.

    It is the electronic version. The battery is stored in the box. Just shot it. The muzzle brake gives it a hell of a crack. It is pretty accurate but I prefer 9mm!

    I`ve only been shooting pistol for the last 10 years. I started with a Sig P210 in 7.65mm, then I got a P210-6 in 9mm. For practical pistol I use a Sphinx 3000. I have brought about 20 non shooters pistol shooting and they have all loved it. Women have out shot their men without exception.

    Morini air pistols are top of the range along with Steyr, your problem is the age as it the cylinders will not pass equipment inspection for high level competitions as they need to be replaced after ten years. There will be a date on the side of the cylinders which will tell you when they were made.
    Cylinders are safe for 20 plus years and you see them this old safely being used in clubs and local competitions but the rule does affect the value. If you were a member of a club that shoot 10 meter pistol competitions I expect you could get £250-00 to £400-00 for it from someone starting out, you will need to say what size grip it has, whether the grip has been cut away or added to to fit the original owners hand, the date on the cylinders and if they hold air, sometime the seals are perishing and they leak when the pistol is stored.
    Some Morini pistols use a Exell A220/504 15 volt battery, I expect by the age of yours it does. These batteries are very hard IF NOT IMPOSSIBLE to buy in the UK, I buy the batteries from the USA where they are still made. Three new ones with postage recently cost me £47-00 so remember to switch off the electronic trigger when you put it away.
    Hope this helps and happy to answer any questions you have if I can.

    I have one of these that has the interchangeable cylinder conversion kit on it. Yours is fixed. I buy my batteries from CPC, or alternatively, you can buy them on Amazon, but they're a bit dearer on there. It looks in pretty good condition for it's age, and assuming that it's all working as it should, then I'd ask for £500 as a starting price, and see what you're offered. You may be best trying to sell it on forum.stirton.com or targettalk.org. These are specialized target shooting forums who will have people looking for this sort of thing.

    Thanks for the information gentlemen. I contacted Morini because I struggled to find the 15v Varta V74PX battery. However, they now make an adaptor that houses 10 LR54 1.5 batteries. The adaptor arrived last week.

    As it was manufactured in 2001, the cylinder needs replacing, so that’s on order. It hasn’t been used for the last nine years, but I gave it a blast of air and installed the battery adaptor to see if it still worked. All working as it should.

    The newer models cost CHF 2700. The secondhand market in Switzerland is more robust!

    Interestingly enough, when I spoke to Morini, they told me to use JSBs. As I am only getting back to air gunning after a too long an absence, I discovered a stock of H&N pellets. They still fly straight!

    I will be trying the Hammerli 280 tomorrow week. I used this regularly until a couple of years ago. And the Sig P210-6 is used a lot.

    Thanks again

    The pistol is on its way back to Morini. Ordering a tube is not as easy as I had hoped....

    I personally wouldn't replace the cylinder and sell it as is. The reason being that a buyer may want to install the interchangeable cylinder upgrade kit, and I don't think that you'd recover the cost of the new cylinder. If you're keeping it, that won't matter, of course.

    I am going to keep it. I`ve been using it over the last week and it`s good fun apart from the crack.

    You can turn it down. I've got mine set to approx. 500fps, which gives me around 200 shots per charge.

    amazon and other sites in the UK advertise the batteries but when you place an order it comes up, out of stock, I will contact Morini about the battery conversion and see if they do it for the free pistol I have.

    What pistol do you have? They do an adapter for the V74PX which costs CHF 16 or GBP 12 approximately. The adapter takes LR54 button type batteries. Make sure sure you buy the 1.5 volt batteries....

    I have a Morini CM84E. It is a LR.22 free pistol, it has the same battery compartment as the air pistol though the grip is different.

    Please could you let me know who you contacted for the battery adapter? I would like to buy one myself.

    Just an aside. Is this the same Morini that used to make motorbikes?

    No. I always fancied a Morini 3 1/2, back in the day.

    Hi Wynne

    I can’t remember the name of the guy that I spoke to. He just took my details and posted it to me. I think I paid CHF 15. They have them in stock. I got the number from the website. Apologies for being short, I’m on vacation and subject to technology curfew.
