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.

    Interesting.

    Odd.

    Spanish brand, but made in Spain? China? Taiwan?

    New introduction, but already discounted by a third?

    Polymer frame on a 1911? Not very keen on that.

    The ads don’t mention blowback, so I’m taking from the long trigger that it’s aping the original M1911, not the later short-trigger M1911A1, and that it’s probably a disguised double-action revolver. As it appears to have a one-piece “slide”, I’m assuming the mags go in from the top, like a Crosman 1008, CB40, or T4, or the Daisy 622.

    Still, interesting. If you get it please tell us more.

    In which case they got the backstrap wrong as it's curved as per the M1911A1 rather than straight as on the M1911.

    Thanks for posting this...

    Certainly looks interestng - pellet firing, 2 x 6 shot rotary mags built into main co2 holder, non-blowback, fps is nothing to write home about - but neither are the usual BB versions.
    Interesting foriegn language (but you'll get the idea) review here

    I'm very tempted as I just dont use my BB Remington nice as it is...

    Indeed it does. And the rearward extended 1911A1 grip safety and finger cut outs on the frame behind the trigger. So neither fish nor fowl. But they catch the eye less than the very long trigger.

    Does the trigger slide (like a 1911/1911A1) or pivot? The early Umarex 1911s had a sliding trigger, but a very heavy DA trigger pull. Quickly changed to a pivoting type.

    I purchased one at christmas, Its a great little gun for plinking.
    Runs on CO2 and you get 50 to 60 shots off one capsule, great build quality.
    The magazine goes in from the bottom which houses the co2 and rotating mag.
    This is not a blow back version and it is quite accurate.
    It is pellet only, not a bb and pellet version like some other 1911.

    The only down side is its not very powerful, tin cans, spinners and paper targets its great for.
    I would never use it even on a rat through fear the rat would be hit then sit up and laugh at me.
    This is fine as i only got it for a bit of plinking.

    I think this pistol is also the same as the Milbro M1911.

    It takes the same magazine and looks almost identical.
    I wanted a spare magazine, and nobody had the norica one, then i was told its the same as the milbro which was easy to find.

    None of us here buy co2 replica pistols for vermin dispatch mate. That is a big no no. But welcome to the forum. :up: There is an introductions section.:thumb:
