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.

  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.

    Krale are another dealer for them, I fancied one and came close to hitting the button a while back but I just cant pay that amount for an airgun, trust me if I did Id have the RAW over anything else, but I cant justify that amount of money on a rifle to plink with esspecially as Ive got stuff at a 1/4 of the price doing the same job.
    They do look the business though and are again simple to service and maintain as the rapid platform is renowned for being user friendly

    I quite like the HM1000, which runs about £1700, however now I have a HM1000 stock with a MFR block and quick fill I have pretty much the same, just without side loading. The TM versions are also nice.

    Couldn't pay that money for a LRT though.

    Maybe half a semester at an average Uni, or about 20 hours private education at home, surely you could become "educated" in that time? as far as not being a "pleb" goes, I think you will need a hell of a lot more money for that!

    You’re spot on there Mark. That’s exactly what the behind closed doors meeting was about. All to do with fit and proper person to own a business in the UK. You can read between the lines, the only real way to find out is a ‘Freedom of Information’ request.

    1) They do some nice colour stocks, 2) I don't have one, 3) therefore it will be exciting for at least 20 minutes or so, other than that not a lot really!

    Oh and they use about 4 times the required amount of aluminium in the block, giving them a nice reassuringly solid feel! plus have huge moderator that does absolutely nothing in terms of sound reduction as far as I am told.

    Thats about it really!

    If you go on Company’s House website you can see all the documentation and the liquidation process. A company from Ipswich dealt with the liquidation. They owed money to a number of companies they outsourced work to including Custom Stock.

    There’s rumours a load of guns went out of the back door to a gun dealer before the receivers got in there. I made many enquires about this but never came across any information of provenance. I’m not sure these guns ever existed other than in people’s imagination. If they certainly did, the gun dealer that had them would be in very deep water as they’re subject of a court order and any retention would amount to contempt of court along with theft.

    Personally I think that's an obscene amount of money for what appears to be a tarted up Rapid under the skin. Add to that it looks bloody awful and I suspect (although can't say from experience) that quality's very likely to have fallen since the AirForce takeover.

    Not with a barge pole IMO.
