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.

  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.

    is 4.5 ft lbs well down from where it should be ? a good price i should putting it up for , and where i can actually sell it ... i dont really want to collect olds ... and ive taken it down the club a few times , but its only so much fun ... and if it is the right place ... does anyone want to buy it ? :) .... im infomed its late 40s early 50s .... which is a bit of a shocker , as im sure it could still take a bunny out at 15 years ... 18 yards and the bunny would fall over , pick up the pellet and throw it back at you

    Gasman has it on the head. It's a nice looking cadet Major if the backsight is adjustable otherwise it's just a Cadet. the fact that it has been cold blued does it no favours I am afraid.
    Can the etching be easily read on the cylinder or has it been worn or sanded away. this effects value greatly.
    As to value, again gasman has it I think. Around £50 /60 and it should sell easily.
    Power should be around7/7.5 ftlbs. Springs and seals are available.
    Sell it on here. Ideal youngsters plinking gun. You will never wear it out.
    Hope this helps.

    cheers for that , no etching at all ... guessing rubbed off ... the cold blue is a good job , but yeah it is just cold blue ..

    for that money i probably wont put too much effort into selling it :) .... knowing it should be up on power ... i might have a go at pulling it apart , see if anything massively looks wrong .... the rear sight does have a little roller which by the looks of things raises and lowers .....

    cheers for the advice
