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.

    Or seller in a wanted add, hi I can do that for you pm incoming regarding it.
    Or a normal sale, hi I want to buy your item
    If a manufacturer gets asked privately about a sale they should say to the prospective buyer please comment on my thread to adhere to forum rules.

  6. 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.

New Pistol - Swiss Arms 1911 Bb

    Today I received my first ever BB Co2 pistol. I thought I would try out a new place (to me) to purchase from, SWS in Germany. Many AGF member's recommended this place, and I was not disappointed by the service. I ordered this pistol along with another few items on Sunday night and it arrived at my doorstep this morning 5 days later from Germany. Tracking was provided the moment it left their hands. This is how it should be done (take note FACPAX).

    Anyway going back to the pistol. I am very happy with my purchase, a classic 1911. Feels great in the hand, operates in the same fashion as the original. Full metal construction and kick's like a mule. Using Uramex BB's it's doing 300- 320 fps and is very consistent. More than accurate enough, and the trigger feels super light smooth and predictable.

    Enjoyed my first pink this afternoon with a BB gun, though I think more went on the floor than they did downrange lol. Practice and I will get better no doubt.

    Its pretty thirsty only managing around 55-60 shots until dropping right off, but that's to be expected considering the massive blow back this pistol has.

    It fully field strip able and comes complete with a screw on adaptor enabling you to fit a 1/2 unf mod if needed.

    Overall very happy with my purchase, as I am with the service I received from SWS. 10/10

    Below are some pics of my new 1911 and the wooden grips I knocked up (printed) for it on friday. I have not tried them on yet, but they have turned out very nice and should look ok.

    Remember, do not fill the mag. Put max 12-15 in. Trust me, it will perform more reliably. :thumb:

    Very nice indeed, you gotta love a 1911......:)

    I've always filled my mags to capacity (18 bb's) and never had any problems in either of my two 1911's, never had a jam, never had a 'lock back'.....I've heard that most of those sort of problems that happen with CO2 pistols happen for exactly the same reason with real handguns, limp wristed shooters ! Get a good firm grip on it, put your shoulder into it and set your sights on emptying that magazine on to the target.

    Here's a quote from B.B. Pelletier (Pyramyd Air);

    It may be that the gun suffers when held with a limp wrist, which is not uncommon with many firearms, as well. It’s possible to make many semi automatic pistols malfunction by nothing more than holding them with a limp wrist that moves more than expected during recoil.

    The article that this quote is taken from is here

    Nice one:up:. It's common knowledge among the KWC type 1911 owners that filling the mags to just 12-14 rounds is better for the pistol. This does indeed create less jams.

    I know a sure fired way for these limp wristed BB shooters to strengthen up :laff:

    I fill my mags to the max NEVER had a jam or errant 'lock back' on a KWC 1911 !!! Maybe I'm just super lucky or maybe I've just got a 'firm' grip on things.

    You watch, next time I fire my 1911 it'll jam on every bleedin' shot :D

    Nice little vid Mr Barrett. But I don't get the frame speeds? I was going to do a slow mo vid myself. Yours was slower at 10,000 fps? Shouldn't that be 10 fps?
