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.

Pp700sa Or Pp750?

    So I'm torn.
    I've been corrupted by this forum and have decided I want a PCP pistol and the above leap out as my favourites.
    The requirements are:
    Lightweight
    Not CO2
    Under £300 including stock
    Has the ability to add/remove a stock.
    UK legal full power pistol but with ability to easily upgrade/downgrade to higher power (we live in France part time).

    The latter causes a slight issue in that I'd like to go .22 but they're a bit more difficult to come by pellets in France where it seems .177 is the norm.

    So anyone have any thoughts on which to go for?

    PP750 pros:
    Everything in a neat package
    Has a 7/9 shot magazine
    Cool lever action cocking (yeah I'm a bit sad that way).

    Cons:
    Limited stock options
    More expensive
    Mounting rail for a scope finishes a long way forward making scope options limited.



    PP700S-A pros:
    Love the look of it (especially that square barrel)
    Feels lovely in the hand (yet to try a 750 though)
    Cheaper than a 750 (even with folding stock).
    Has other stock options including the amazing HirdHawke ones.
    Decent length rail

    Cons:
    Single shot
    Fiddly to load.

    Or do I just go for another off my wish list and seriously annoy the other half by getting a S/H Kral Puncher Breaker (I'd love a bullpup)...... Found a used one with scope, second stock, case and extra cartridges for £350....

    Infinity modifiable.

    Yep the PP700SA, does convert very easily into a wonderful little carbine like. And it's more adjustable than a uk FX impact for whatever your requirements, proper good little ratter. :thumb:

    How about the Artemis P15? It’s more compact than either pistol, has a multi shot magazine and is legal at 12ft/lbs whereas the PP700SA isn’t. Also, by the time you’ve customised the PP700SA the difference in cost won’t be a million miles apart.

    P15 is an option but I can do a Kral for less and personally I think they look nicer (especially with the cocking lever mod).

    That's kind of my thinking.
    A pistol I can use as a pistol but can also use as a lightweight easily packaged for travelling rifle.
    In that respect the 750 seems to fit the bill pretty well out of the box but there's just something about the 700...
    One of my local RFDs has his own 700 with a Hugget and hard case for sale but I think at £280 it's a bit expensive.

    I've decided you lot are a very bad influence.....
    IMG_20200915_171445.jpg

    Handled both and decided there was no contest. The 750 felt enormous as a pistol but nice as a lightweight rifle. The 700 just felt right.

    Now to figure out how to break the news to MrsLK...

    It was just a bit of fun on another forum, kind of a "Zombie apocalypse" thread.

    Nice one, you'll love it, it is a really accurate bit of kit. I would defo chrono it as they have a reputation for running a bit hot. I have the PP700W, which I got for a song, it was leaking and sold as seen. A new set of seals and it is just brilliant to shoot with now. Enjoy.
