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.

    ive just been given a

    diana mod 2

    webley mark 1

    and webley tempest

    ive had abit search about for them on the web and the diana seems to be 1935 and was less accurate than a gat.

    the tempest was, well, all said every schoolboys preferred "gun"

    but im rather curious of the mark 1, sounds like possible 50s and is similar to seniors etc in aesthetics.

    i will upload pics later as my cam battery died, but any hel with history, value quality etc would be greatly appreciated, all the best kris

    We need to know if the mk.1 is pre or post war /straight or slant grip etc. So a photo is essential.

    The MK1, well possibly, though you wont make much or even any money on it, there are loads about. The Gat, why would you want to?:) The Tempest, definitely not, they are still current, and you can get a brand new one for as little as 139 sovs. Yes Turkish made, but none the worse for that, and there are loads on the SH market, Brum and Turkish.

    All the above is just my opinion of course, others may well think differently.:) Just another thought, if you just wanted to do the MK1 as a project for your own satisfaction it might be worth doing, sow's ears into silk purses sort of thing? A full strip down and rebuild would be a nice little project really, I believe you can still get most if not all of the bits.

    cheers, i seen people wanting mod 2s for collections but they're only worth about 75 to 150 great british PENNIES, just because its old doesn't mean its valuable.

    the mk 1 3 on g* at stupid prices, when i looked i didnt get excited just thought, never sell

    and the tempest il keep the way it is, its £30 for just the trigger gaurd.

    until i had a dig about i thought the mk1 and mod two could have been interesting
