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.

    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.

  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.

    I just got back to the hotel after visiting my cousin in Germany
    He said he had an old airgun, nothing special that they use once a year to have a bit of fun during the annual camping trip
    He goes away for a minute and comes back with this old gunsleeve and pulls out a mint Walter LG mod 55 with the diopter sight :eek:

    Nothing special, yeah rite
    He's certainly a happy camper now he knows what a gem he has lying around the spare room for 363 days each year
    I have the feeling this gun will get some tlc now, not that it needs it looks wise but a new spring might be in order

    Do you think on German airgun forums they get posts from people saying that their guns are running at 6.2 ftlb then have everyone else reminding them of the serious consequences of going over 6ftlb? Then again it's Germany, all the guns probably run at 5.9ftlb with NO DEVIATION.

    This correct, anything else would be unacceptable.:D

    The LG55 and subsequent LGV are IMO the pinnacle of recoilling spring gun development. Built to a standard that would be uneconomic these days. If you have any mechanical understanding or sympathy then just cocking one will bring a smile to your face, super light and smooth. Here's some eye candy from the AVA for those who appreciate the finer things in life.

    They have up to 3.5lbs of ballast (barrel shroud 285-730g, lead stock weight 500-835g) to aid stability and recoil control. It works.

    Spares for your cousin's LG55 can be had from Waffencentre, the spring will probably be fine, but seals are worth replacing as the old materials do crumble and continued shooting will cause damage. Replacement requires caution, the trigger interrupter bar is very easily broken.
