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.

    I bought this privately a week or so ago. It came ready tuned with all of the right gear so I could overlook its, erm, cosmetic shortcomings.

    This is the rifle.

    I used it today for the first time. It's nice to use and very accurate. It just requires a little more work on the metalwork and the scope. The trigger needs a bit of fettling too.

    I never used to rate QB/XS rifles. That's until I bought one though. I think they're superb wee guns that are heaps of fun to shoot yet are capable of some very respectable results and more than enough to use as a hunting rifle in summertime (if CO2 powered) and an all year round gun if you convert them to HPA.

    Thank you.

    Truck Bedliner spray paint from Halfords for less that a tenner. It's a very good product even though it is from Halfords.

    It has a great texture. Very similar to a synthetic stock.

    The best texture phots I have are these:

    Hi guys, I seen one of these in the shop a few days ago, how do you rate them, are they powerful? Or just for paper targets?

    Out of the box you get about 6 to 8 ft:lb. With a little work, they can easily give 12ft:lb. They can go up to, I think, 24 ft:lb.

    They are very accurate, nicely weighted and very easy to work on. For the money, they can't be beaten, especially if you buy a used one which has had the tuning done already.

    Don't be expecting a high quality product along the lines of Air Airms, Theoben, etc. They are cheaply made, but very good at what they do. Oh, and they are infinitely modifiable.

    There is a forum dedicated to them and their ilk.
    It's the UKChineseairgunforum.

    Woah! I'm loving that bullpup mod nice and compact, the local gun shop has the 88g co2 version in and he said they are getting the 2x 12g version in on Tuesday @ £140 new with no scope, suppressor.
    I'm itching to get one but after buying a box standard how much extra would you say it would cost to get it to the legal limit shooting good?

    About £50 (http://www.trrobb.com/category/smk). I would hold out for a used one that has been done. You'll likely get a scope too.
