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.

    They are a very nice gun, I have one. But to be honest its the gun I get the least pleasure from shooting. Its very heavy, the force required to cock it requires a fair bit of muscle, the lever is not very comfortable to grip and its a faf to try and get the pellet in the chamber.

    The plus side is its as accuarte as my PCP's and probably the most accurate of all my springers.

    I would much rather shoot my new Weihrauch HW95K.

    If you don't buy it I wouldn't mind the rfd's details been looking for a left handed prosport for some time and I would shell out the 400 notes on it in a heart beat if you do buy it let me know if you ever want to move it on :)

    Forgot to mention there is a new Walther LGU underlever just hit the market at around £350. Going to check one out as soon as my local RFD has one in and if I like it well another to the collection.

    things haven't gone to plan though I bought it as a .177 but when I got home found it to be a .22 a d I'm not sure what to do it is a left handed walnut stock in perfect condition but its not the calibre I wanted do I buy a right handed .177 swap stocks and sell the .22 or do I take it back and keep looking :confused:

    The ticket on it said .177 :confused: that's the only reason I was gonna get it . He's a good bloke have you asked him if he can get rh .177 in and swap stocks . If you don't ask you'll never know :)

    Yeah it had the .177 ticket on it and he did seem a nice enough fella I'm sure he would refund me if I desire but I have to consider fuel costs in taking it back or shipping costs.
    I didn't think about asking him to swap for a .177 action probably worth having a chat with him anyway as it wasn't what I paid for :eek:
    So I know have 2 left hand stocks and 1 action in the wrong calibre

    Am i missing something here
    How is it your fault he has ended up with a .22 and not a .177 ?
    Surely the calibre is stamped on the gun
    Confused here ???

    You shouldn't feel guilty totally not your fault it's just one of those things :)
    On the plus side I've just been zeroing it at 30 metres with AA diabolo fields and it shoots really nice very accurate, and I am planning on shooting my permission for a bit of peace and solitude maybe this rifle is a nice alternative to my S410 :)
