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.

    If it is £2500+ it will make an EDgun Leyla look even more reasonable.........

    We now have confirmed prices for the new Steyr Pro X and Pro X Scout.

    We originally guessed they would be £2000 - £2500.

    Our price will be £2310

    As we do not normally keep the Steyrs on the shelf we would need a non-returnable deposit to place an order for anyone who wants one.
    If you would like a price for any other Steyr then please let me know.

    Nice work - that sounds very competitive when referenced against the price difference between this model and existing variants on the European market. Just out of interest (full disclosure - I'm not buying!) what would your price be for the Hunting 5 Auto? Are these "official" Steyr UK imports or are they coming in through SGC? Thanks :)

    These all come from Steyr UK so are official Steyr guns.

    Our price for the Hunting 5 Auto will be £1980.

    Waaaay toooooo much for me, bit greedy imo. Can't see them selling many at those prices. Kudos to them for bringing out a semi auto bullpup though.

    So guys quick question - is it UK legal?
    Some say semi auto isn’t legal in UK but others answer - it isn’t semi auto, it is semi indexing. Where is the truth. I don’t want to end up with illegal gun...
    Many thanks

    It is a LEGAL air rifle. The way it indexes is the reason that makes it legal.

    Ok thanks for your answer.
    Got 2 more questions:
    Are semi auto air rifles banned in the UK?
    Is this classed as semi auto?
    If not what is the difference between this one and semi auto?
    Sorry don’t want to be pain in the ass just want to be 100% sure before I’ll buy one...

    Got the answer from another source if someone got doubts like myself:

    “The National Ballistics Intelligence Service has confirmed that the Steyr LP50 pistol is not a Section 5 or Section 1 pistol, and therefore its use can continue.

    NABIS had confiscated LP50s and parts from the headquarters of Steyr UK earlier in the year after a routine inspection, and submitted them for testing. However, it ultimately decided that the LP50 is self-indexing and not self-loading, as defined by section 57(2A) of the Firearms Act 1968. The same applies to the Steyr Hunting 5 Auto air rifle.

    Though this is not strictly a decision with legal authority, it is one the courts are unlikely to ignore. Accordingly, supply of both Steyr models to the UK has resumed. The move dispels worries that the confiscation of LP50 pistols could set a precedent for other action types in the UK. Mike Morton, editor of Airgun Shooter, commented on the decision: “These guns feature an unusual five-round stick magazine. The action is cocked with a biathlon-type side lever, and after the first pellet is fired, each subsequent shot is just a squeeze of the trigger away. The legal ruling does not, however, open the floodgates to a wave of semi-autos arriving on our shores – just this particular Steyr action. Each pellet is fired directly from the magazine, rather than being taken from the mag by a pellet probe and inserted into a breech. The guns are therefore self-indexing rather than self-loading – that’s the distinction. A true self-loading action is still only allowed in .22 rimfire.”

    Pretty sure the Pro X Scout is the same type of action.

    Old news. The law prohibits self loading guns unless smoothbore or chambered for .22 rimfire. Because all of the "semi-auto" Steyr variants (LP5, LP50, Hunting 5 Auto, Pro-X) fire their pellets directly from the magazine into the barrel when the trigger is pulled they're classified as self-indexing; rather than self loading since they do not transfer the pellet from a magazine to the chamber in the barrel prior to the trigger being pulled to discharge the shot.

    This sets them apart from most other true semi-auto (not double-action) air rifles on the market that use a probe to chamber the next pellet in much the same way as a bolt-action PCP would; thus making them prohibited under UK law.

    Our price for the Pro X Scout 177 is £2400. Steyr currently have 1 left in stock, so we could get it within a few days.
