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.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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.

    Seems that be the latest brand to do a bullpup, I'm no Gamo fan at all but this actually doesn't look too bad and I really like the wooden cheekpiece which is different as well the nice looking bolt. The bottom half reminds me of the Ultra XL I think.
    I don't remember if there was a price but surely got to be under £600 if it's going to sell at all.

    I’d be keen to learn the differences, if any internally to the defiant

    If I had to guess, then I'd say that about 2 people have bought a BSA Defiant, therefore they've got a few barreled actions lying about.
    So whach a cheaper beech unit on, lower the price (at a guess) then flog them as a Gamo?

    As for looks, it looks like an Ultra had angry hate s** with an HW100, not gently, and this was the only catharsis that they could reach without violence.
    Blatant Deadpool rip off.

    I hate bullpups but that does have a certain appeal going for it. It's not as ugly as some of the abortions out there.

    They’ve definitely (defiantly) used one obvious spare part from the defiant.

    When the defiant was first revealed at the NEC last year many complained about the scope rail height so it was lowered. Look carefully... the scope rail on this Gamo is the original high rail that was first shown on the Defiant.

    So for that reason alone, I’m out.

    Gotta be sub 600 or being a Gamo then it’ll never sell, I’m reckoning mid to late 400’s...

    Seems quite well thought out though...

    Like all bull pups it looks kak and comes from El Cheepo. So that's 2 reasons to give it a good stiff ignoring .

    I like that ....and it may even be affordable .Could be a top buy.Could be that this is the way BSA /Gamma should have gone in the first place .I think that they have tactically withdrawn and regrouped on this one and if the price is right they have a winner .Its a nice looking bullpup .
    I'd buy one .

    I can understand the feeling about bullpups but "El Cheepo" Have you actually tried a Gamo? Just one or numerous different ones?

    Its a bsa ,gammo went in for the name /tech just as BMW went in for Rover/land rovers off road tech .I mean ,you don't see any rover 25/75s any more do you .
    It's a cheaper ( probably) defiant .The choice is yours .

    I've got the latest version of the Gamo Phox. Made by BSA at Birmingham, serviced and adjusted at Birmingham.
    I previously owned an AA S200. The Gamo is just as accurate, better shot count, less pronounced power curve, better magazine system. It was £499 all in with scope, bag, pump, and silencer.
    Put together the same outfit with an S200 from AGC with basic scope, bag, pump, silencer and you're very close to £1000.
    Both my RFD and AGC do a lifetime warranty. Having used both and avoiding brand loyalty (prosport owner) I have no hesitation in saying the Phox is just as good as the S200 in some respects and better in others. Lesser brands get knocked. Just like Suzuki, Honda, Mitsubishi, Yamaha, Kawazaki, Seat, Skoda, Kia and so on. Do I miss my S200? Yes, it had its good points but the Gamo Phox, so far knocks spots off it in just about every comparison.
