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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  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.

    Been on the hunt for a nice early-war K98k for a good while now. After badgering a guy who mentioned he might sell his on and off for months I finally managed to prise it from him yesterday :D

    Action is stamped AR 42, so will have been built by Mauser at Borsigwalde in 1942.

    All matching, bore looks excellent. Action is very slick, really feels like a quality piece of engineering.

    Got some 200gr MKs and 175gr Pro Hunters loaded up for tomorrow!

    Sweet! Getting used to seeing these now as a mate has one. He’s just installed the scope mounts.

    This ones way too good to 'bubba' and will remain as it left the factory ;p Deffo plan to get a scoped 98 or have one built up on a rougher rifle though, as my eyes aren't getting any better and K98 irons aren't the best, but that wont be until I have my gun room sorted - well short on storage now :(

    Here you go Rich, my mate hasn’t told me I can’t use his pic but I have edited it so it’s not obvious who or where it is.
    As close to original as he can make it, it only needed minor mods to the iron sights to get it fitted as per original spec. It shoots sweet as....... 4AB00E1C-DA84-4D09-8950-E63CAED71850.jpeg

    Very nice, I can certainly see the attraction of a scope on a K98, the irons really don't inspire me much! I may send an email to https://www.thamesvalleyguns.co.uk/ about building one, as they're only a few miles away and seem to have a decent reputation. I did consider this http://www.byswordandmusket.co.uk/fac-rifles/german-rilfes/short-side-rail-scoped-byf-41-k98-f-935/ but its a lot of cash for a rifle that has a few things I'm not keen about (in particular it being SSR rather than LSR or low turret mount)...probably the way to go for a scoped rifle though, as finding a legit original sniper these days is a fools errand!
