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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    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.

    This is going to sound petulant, but I wouldn’t buy that if it was £100. As good as it looks, a more blatant rip-off of one man’s design and engineering I have yet to see. I’ve seen even tiny companies have their IP stolen without shame by Chinese companies, even down to clone websites selling the niche products as if they are the real thing - entirely safe in the knowledge that they are safe from patent infringement prosecution as they are shielded by the Chinese government.

    If you are the sort of person happy to wear a fake Rolex or buy their wife a fake handbag then crack on.

    If you are happy to see an innovator and engineer like Ed (who I am sure is doing OK now, but I’m equally sure has had his house and relationships on the line more than once as he worked to get his ideas into the market) lose out on his legacy then crack on.

    I’m not. I think it is horrendous that this sort of thing is deemed to be acceptable.

    I hate IP theft like this.
    An interesting metamorphosis in the change from Wood Goblin to Poison Frog...

    Woah, hang on there buddy!

    I appreciate there are lots of Chinese (and other countries') manufacturers who copy other designs and steal others' intellectual property - which I don't condone in the slightest.
    I can't agree with your statement that "...Chinese [people] have zero morals". I know plenty of Chinese people who are some of the kindest, honest and most scrupulous people anyone could ever hope to meet.

    Sweeping generalisations, in my view, are to be avoided; and can have consequences and repercussions beyond the original intent.
    All the best

    Just to be clear, my rail was not about Chinese people, rather the Chinese system as it stands.

    Absolutely mate, that's how I read it, and doubt many would disagree.

    The Chinese doing what the Chinese do but they're not alone. The French do this quite alot, take a look at the carp fishing tackle in france.
    Cars aswell.
    At the end of the day there are very few innovators and very many copycats.
    In this instance I will carry on saving for a leishy :)
    If it was a 10k handbag my wife wanted, I would quite happily buy her a copy:D:D

    its not a copy of a leishy its just another way of making a air rifle that would use a air tube for a stock
    and cock the bolt by folding in half like a brake barrel side ways and have the valve in the tube like a
    stelth does in a bottle and then have the tp at 45 degrees so you can strike the valve and the air
    go direct in to the barrel
    i can only see one thing the same as a leshi and thats the bleed for releasing the presure

    i can see that ed may be peed off about it as he had a nee-sh market but its not a copy.
    lt just does the same sort of thing .
    im not saying the chinees thing is not good quality i have not seen one but the leishy is a masterpiece
    and the quality of the barrels is second to none
    more to the point would who would pay £1100 to a company in china it says you can use paypal but
    thats not guaranteed if its for guns

    not all cars are clones but they all have 4 wheels
    brake barrels all work the same way but are different
    how many pcp s have the same layout

    It maybe a copy/clone whatever you want to call it. It is not a leshy and those wanting a leshy with warranty and back up will buy and pay for a leshy not a lashup Chinese copy. Don't buy them but that will not stop the rest of the world saving a buck or two thats just what the human race does. I won't be buying a lashup anytime soon. :thumb:
