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. 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.

    So yesterday I went for a jolly with a good friend of mine. Neil lives in Walsall Birmingham and took me to a clay ground with an air rifle HFT range as well. Well I'm no clay shooter and it showed as its the first time in 15 years I've held a 12 bore. But it was a giggle as I was able to put plenty of lead in the air that was all.

    After tea we entered the HFT...:eek:, now Neil often shoots the course and I'd had plenty of greif before hand how he was going to wipe the floor with my old antique mark 1 rapid 7. Well after being told how amazingly Awsome and accurate his Daystate Air Ranger in 177 was that he bought some months ago. How the technology has mooved on since the Rapid was made ect ect. It was regulated, high capacity bottle, gauge, easy feed mag and super quite shrouded barrel, I was in for a beating.

    As I settled into a few shots I was pretty impressed with my performance, not to shabby for a novice :up::). The Neil bellowed for me to move out the way as a professional was about to perform:rolleyes:. He took his stance, shouldered his rifle flicked off the Saftey and..........nothing.

    Apparently you have to charge the battery in it.:D.
    Lucky for Neil I had take two antique mark 1 rapid 7s, so I had to have picture of one with him. Still smiling today.

    I've never shot or even held a rapid yet and don't consider myself an air gunner until I do :)

    Don't they are addictive. You know it can shoot better with a teflon nipple spring extender in tintanium dilythium crystals with a solid gold trigger...

    But in Doncaster there is a . amongst Rapid engineers, he is called KevG...

    Seriously though give it a go, they are wonderful rifles, basically left alone during the production run as they got it right first time. There is an extensive spares back up and new parts being made including the magazines (Dr Bob's Airgun Bits for those).

    Stocks, Custom Stock Sheffield! Great guys and good prices, nice quality work too! My 2007 beast now sits in a CS500 stock, feels better balanced than the factory original!

    That's strange because Air Rangers are neither regulated nor electronic.

    I did, he wanted shot of it and I paid a fair price for the condition it was in, rusted barrel, broken stock, rusted silencer, broken magazine and no air in it! In fact I think my offer was over what the gun was worth in the condition it was in, especially seeing as it was a Theoben Special sub 12 which was doing 14! Pull your head in, you know nowt and spout a great deal about it!

    I did not know fixing the rapid was aimed at people of your intellect, but I cannot make delrin pips, new valves and finely balance the working mechanism, so I used somebody who can. The problem with a lot of Rapids is that they have been fixed by retarded monkeys and do not work properly.

    Im not going to argue but it's defently a daystate and it looks like a rapid 7 with an electric trigger, so no dout someone will be able to put the record straight.

    Andrew

    It might be an Air Wolf.

    Bunnyblatter, he knows nothing about the deal that was made between myself and the person I bought the gun from, going on his approximation of the deal I should have paid £1000 for a rusting Rapid 7 mark 1 with broken stock and broken magazine! Would he pay £1000 for a Rapid in that state? I think not!

    Like I said he knew nowt about the deal and he spouted a lot about it, despite knowing nothing. He should wind his neck in!

    Seamaster - I agree over the electronics, but looking through the records, in fact the Air Rangers WERE regulated in the early days of them. Then they weren't. It might have been an upgrade option specified by the commissioning customer, I am not sure, but I do know quite a few early Rangers had regs.

    As for Rapids - nothing better as far as I am concerned, but I do put up with second best for some things, like my own Ranger and a Huntsman, but it is the Rapid that is first out of the cupboard if I have to bring something home for the pot.:up:

    Yeah, it sounds like it's a pretty new gun though so it's probably an Airwolf.

    WITH A FLAT BATTERY :D You do have to wonder, don't you!

    By the way Andrew - how well did you and your mate score with the 'old technology' ? What are the targets like - are they really tricky, or just the sort of thing you come across in an everyday hunting situation? I will go and see these 'ethical' targets in the flesh one day.

    i own, a rapid mk1, daystate harrier se and fx2000 all not really modern, the only modern rifle i own is a bsa ultra se- but that is there for ratting. i wouldn't have bought it if i had my rapid first.

    all the new stuff lacks character in my opinion, sound like someone 30years older lol ;)
