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.

    Absolutely ghastly!Why don't AA make a break barrel springer something that people actually want instead of an 'orrible bullpup I bet it's just a rehash of one of their production actions in a nasty plastic stock anyway!

    Same as the majority of Bullpups they are either love or hate. They are available in synthetic, beech and walnut. Regulated or unregulated. We have ours on order and are one of the first on the list. We have coming Beech and Walnut, regulated, .177 and .22s. That's all the info we have at the moment.

    If it had Daystate written on it it would be shot down in flames. Be interesting to see what people's opinions will be with it having air arms moniker. Hate bull pups myself but in all fairness it looks quite tidy.

    I love bullpup rifle designs, but I'm not liking the look of the Galahad.

    How close is the magazine to cheek I wonder?

    Now if I could have a decent (as in designed to shoot not just for looks) Tavor in air rifle form I'd be in heaven.

    My first impression of the brief glimpse of it was that it looks a little cheap on the front end, and looks a little cluttered at the rear. What i also spot is what looks like Geordie's signature hog-back swooping cheekpiece on the stock. Not sure why that would be there if there's a hod of plastic over the breech as a cheek piece anyway :confused:

    I think this is going to be a marmite rifle. Personally, i think it could be better, but i guess we'll have to wait for some better pictures and a spec list before we can all jump to conclusions. I just hope they aren't going to put a huge price tag on it for what it is.

    Better if they shrouded barrel in stead of the horrible barrel band.

    Perhaps AA have decided that if Daystate can build an ugly Bullpup then they can better it....but if we bought rifles on looks alone then none of us would be running round with HW 100s. Personally, if it shoots well (and by all accounts the Pulsar certainly does) then I hope it succeeds, time will tell. (maybe AA were influenced by the sales of the Pulsar and wanted a part of that market also).

    Yuk!! It's like the Fiat Multipla of airguns.

    I never though I'd say it but that could actually be uglier than the Pulsar.
