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.

    Some of the models do look similar to the Artemis range, but then i've got pictures of the new Artemis range to show tomorrow, and these look completely different.
    Looking at the styling on the side they do look like they have more then likely come from Artemis.
    As soon as i've had some confirmation on bits and pieces i shall let you all know.

    We have blocked trade prices out, but i can assure you that we do not shaft anyone. In fact we're pretty open on what we earn on guns. Its generally 50% on cheap air rifles, where we may earn £30 £40. Other then that we put £75 on rifles and £100 on guns which cost us over £1000.

    The Remy’s look massively over priced, especially when you see £1,300 for their top end model, if that rifle will ever be seen at that price which I doubt.
    It’s not a shops fault for the pricing though

    Only listed as available in .22 which if correct is a weird decision.

    Looks like the ugly tree had a bit of a windfall problem.
    I think Remington is going to have the same problem over here as Crosman with their PCP's... to damn expensive. Considering the price of AA 410/510, HW100, BSA R10 and even the low end Daystates. They're having a laugh.

    The only thing SMK takes a chance on is wasting sales brochures on what might or might not. Remington either will or will not supply. SMK are only the UK importer for them. It isn't like they had them made for their branding.

    The first one says “unlike any other PCP”........ it’s the same gun available under a handful of different brands, a few of which SMK wholesale... laughable.

    That’s a lot of money for a generic Snowpeak/SPA gun...

    Yeah for sure. Especially for a £200 price difference. There certainly won’t be a £200 difference in quality

    Damn the profit is hardly b****r all on a gun. 40 to 60 quid for a top ender? Amazed the dealers stay in business.

    Puts it into perspective when say one goes to drop a grand on a gun in a shop and its a big thing for many people and a good experience they will remember, yet for the shop it seems they have not even covered the assistants wages for the day. Very glum indeed.:(

    It’s a brand name only. They are made in China. Just like “Ruger” and “Winchester” air rifles.

    The BSA Silver Star in the US sold as a Daisy or Gamo has a RRP £230 less than the RRP here.

    Because the volumes sold over the pond, far exceed ours, so they can keep the prices down.

    I was also told that the silver star here is a completely new gun and is only based on the one in USA that came from the main man at BSA spoke to him yesterday. The silver star will be either 6 or 12 ft pound by cylinder change, so this may also be why cost is more.

    Right. When I spoke with BSA some months back about the large discrepancy they never said the rifle was any different from the US version. That does explain it somewhat. But nearly £250 different? I don't think so.
