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.

    Hi everyone, I am a new comer to the world of air guns. I have just inherited a very old Air Rifle & don't know what to do next. Obviousley I want to stay within the law so need a guiding hand. I will probable sell the rifle in question because I don't have any interest. I don't think it has ever been tested, so were do I go from here?

    Post up pics and whatever details you can find on it and someone will help you identify it (as mick said above)
    good chance if its a well known model advice on possibility of it being overpowered and how to go about testing it to ensure its legal before you go about trying to sell it.

    Chances are, if it's a very old spring gun, being overpowered won't be a problem. If it's a very old pneumatic, it could be a different case. Some more info is required.

    Hi everyone again, I have now had time to look at the markings on the rifles. On top is stamped:- H The Lincoln air rifle patent, on the stock is:- Lincoln Jeferies inventor & patentee, above the trigger is stamped:- No 11193. The other gun that I have inherited is a Dianna No BG3268A although the front sight is missing on this rifle. Both seem to be .177.

    Can't help with valuation. Staying legal power wise will not be an issue. Storage might be though, especially if you have minors in the house, to be on the safe side, make sure they are not loaded/cocked and place a plastic coated bike lock through the trigger guards and put them somewhere out of the way, not in the shed or garage. For example on top of a wardrobe out of the way of kids.

    Wow! That is an old beast! Like others have said, I doubt power will be an issue but it can't hurt to get it chrono'd. What calibre is it?
