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.

    hi,

    i've always been tempted by the above rifle and i am considering selling one of my rifles to fund it.

    does anyone have any experience with them? i'm not sure whether i'd get it in carbine or rifle version but im leaning towards rifle.

    Price is the main bugbear on these, now £825 with quickfill!

    Availability is another, this is a true hand made job, by a factory in London, with Italian stocks. They used to use BSA barrels, I do not know if they still do.

    But it is the gun I would add to my collection. Just need to find a nice secondhand example really, cannot justify the cost of a new one quickfill or no!

    I've got a .22 Mk I rifle (the one made by Parker Hale in Brum) and I'll never part with it. The balance suits me and it's a dream to shoot.

    The only failing with the Mk I was the crap BSA mag they used, but I got one of the new type mags last year and it's been faultless ever since.

    I know it shouldn't matter, but it's the one rifle that is guaranteed to attract admiring glances and requests for a few shots - I've had to promise one of my mates that he can have mine when I peg it :eek:

    Barrel has been "balled" and all internals re-worked to give more efficient air usage giving at least 120 shots per charge
    Beautiful walnut stock and deep blueing to die for:)
    My only gripe is no quick fill but hell i can live with that:)

    I think that could have been the rifle that started my search for these a year or 2 ago, I saw it for sale and missed out?

    All,

    I'd have to part with my webley longbow to fund it realistically so it's a hard decision (and if I'm honest I shouldn't have bought my elite but I'll lose money on that)

    So I suppose I could tell myself it actually will only cost me about 450 :p

    That is lovely Andy. I might get one eventually. First dibs on this when you sell it (as long as it's .177 that is.) ;)

    After speaking to "someone" I'm advised to stay clear of a mk1 and get a good example mk2 if I was to.

    And points against buying one he said (based on mk1)

    Rubbish butt pad, hard non grippy plastic.
    Very complicated mechanically.
    Rear stock and pistol very wide.
    .......

    I can't say that I've had any issues with the points "someone" made, but...there's a lot to be said for buying a gun that still has support from the manufacturer, so if I was in your position I'd also go for a MkII (price, condition etc still being a factor). Anyway, I read somewhere that only 1,200 or so MkIs were ever built - they certainly don't come up for sale very often.

    Yes I feel, a mk2 would be the way as simply waiting for a used one isn't an option as I'm on gun star every week :rolleyes: and I haven't seen one in probably a year. Prices are the issue and I'll have to look into that as really i don't want to spend that money on top of the kit I have already.

    I don't have an issue with spending lots on a rifle if i like it, as I don't give a toss about resale value on those (my Fx2000 stands me at £1,000 :eek: )

    CLUBSHOT what ways are these available? Can you choose stocks..... I've seen solware advertise them?

    What do you guys find pellet wise they like? Suppose bsa rifle type pellets are prefferred or, im sure clubshot would recommend the pax range :)
    Cheers
