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.

    I tried to post an Add in the 'for Sale forum today but was informed by a Moderator that I must include a price for each of the guns. I'm hoping that members in this forum could help me with this by giving a broad estimate of the value of these. The problem is that, I guess, like all secondhand goods, the value will be directly related to the condition and I'm not well enough informed to judge this. They all look as if they have been well looked after but I have no idea regarding the quality of the mechanisms. [​IMG] Any help in satisfying the conditions of selling on the forum would be greatly appreciated.

    The Guns are as follows:

    1) a .177 calibre BSA Mercury (Looks in very good condition)

    2) a .22 BSA Airsporter Number behind trigger guard CE 1439, (Not in such good condition Barrel pockmarked and looks like stock may have been replaced

    3) a Crossman 766 with Telescopic sight, Pump action, looks like .22 Calbre, seems to have some sort of cartridge loading capability. (Haven't been able to work this one out) Condition fair.

    4) .177 Spanish rifle with a pistol grip in front of the normal stock. The name is hidden under the telescopic sight and I'm loath to take this off in case its set up in some way. the last four digits of the name are 'gamo' and there seems to be some sort of fish logo at the other end of the name. This had a 'Crackle finish on the metal parts and the plastic stock is mid brown.

    5) a .22 1938/39 BSA model A, (this info was kindly supplied to me through a previous thread). I would say that this gun is in good condition for its age and certainly when I tried it, (Well one has to doesn’t one), I found it to be at least as powerful as the Airsporter, possibly a bit more so.

    Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

    Are you sure the serial number on the Airsporter begins with CE and not GE? I am not aware of airsporters with that number. If it's GE I think it's a 1965-67 mark 2. As for value, I would esstimate around £150-£170 for a well looked after one, so you would need to adjust your price as per condition.
    With the Mercury being .177 which isn't as common as .22, depending on age that could be worth a similar amount.
    I am not an expert on these and my advice is only a rough idea for you but hopefully someone will pop up with a better knowledge on these rifles and give you more accurate advice.
    Gary.

    Hi Dave, thanks for that, however, am I missing something as the webaddress showing on your reply has a row of **, should that mean something to me? Sorry to be so ignorant :(

    The asterisks are there because the site's name (probably G unstar) is on the forum's censorship list ;)

    Not my area of expertise, but I'll have a stab:

    Mercury: Looks in decent nick and .177s usually go for a bit more as they're not as common. I'd reckon £80-120 depending on condition and buyer.
    Airsporter: Earlier ones are better (which this is) I'd say £100-180 depending on condition.
    Crosman: Fairly cheap yankie pump-up; probably around £40-60.
    Asi Paratrooper (the Spanish one): Around £80-120, maybe more to a collector if it's a minter.
    BSA: Sorry, absolutely no idea..

    They'd all be worth a bit more if they weren't covered in marks on one side from being laid on patio slabs - usually this puts me right off the purchase if I see a gun pictured like this in an ad ;)

    EDITED to say that Gasman knows more about this sort of shiz than I do, so I'd largely bow to his (irritatingly lower) estimates..

    Hi Dave, :( :(, I was very careful, but I do take the rebuke to heart, forgive me please. From now on any photographs will be on a blanket. Thank you very much for the advice. Gary
