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.

    Sales Approval

    New sales/swap threads will not show publicly until they have been approved by a member of staff. Before this happens you must:

    1. Complete the ‘My Personal Seller Info’ field in your profile (this is a private field that can only be seen by admin staff) with your full Name, Address, Post Code, a Telephone Number and (if you have one) your PayPal payment address.

    2. Include in at least one photo of the item for sale/swap a note laid next to the item that clearly shows your forum username and the date (same date as the advert). An example of what we want can be found here.

    Failure to do either of the above means your advert will not be approved.


    1. Do not list items for sale or swap that you have listed elsewhere. This was introduced as multiple cross-forum listings can cause many problems - especially when a user says ‘I’ll take it’, only to be told it has been sold on another forum. You can however, list items if you have multiples of the same or you are making multiples of items for sale.

    2. All items advertised on airgunforum.co.uk must be available 'exclusively' to our members. By advertising elsewhere you cannot guarantee your item would be available. Users who list elsewhere as well as here will have their advert deleted; they may also receive a one month ban.

    3. Do not list items for sale on behalf of other people; you must own the item that is for sale.


    1. Do not post replies in a Sales Post by saying something that may decrease the probability of a sale/swap.

    2. Do not post replies unless you’re interested in buying the item. If you wish to point out a problem to the seller, do so by PM.


    First to say they will have it in the For Sale thread (or by PM) gets the item at the advertised or agreed price.


    You must state a price when selling an item, but you can put ‘open to offers’ with a starting price if you wish.


    1. You must check/update your thread every 24 hours. If it's still for sale please keep other members informed by adding a post to your thread. Once sold; make a post stating that your item is now sold then admin will update your thread and move it to the Sales Graveyard.

    2. If you click on ‘Watch Thread’ this will alert you of any posts in your thread – this can even be set to alert you by email if you wish.

    3. Threads not bumped or updated for a period of two weeks or more will be sent to the Sales Graveyard.

    Deleting or Editing Threads

    Never delete or edit anything out of a For Sale advert - just post an update in your thread with the reason. If it does not sell in the time scale you wanted you can put ‘no longer for sale’ or ‘withdrawn from sale’ as a new post.

    FAC Rated Items

    1. All FAC rated items must be clearly marked as such in the advert and must only be available to FAC licence holders.

    2. All sales must be 'Face-to-Face' or via a RFD.

    3. Any FAC item offered without following these rules will result in a ban and/or being reported to your local Police if deemed appropriate.

    Realistic Imitation Firearms

    1. Do not advertise for sale or wanted realistic imitation firearms on airgunforum.co.uk, these include airsoft replicas, blank firing guns, model guns, but does not include airguns, de-activated firearms or antique firearms.

    2. A realistic imitation firearm means an imitation firearm which (a) has an appearance that is so realistic as to make it indistinguishable for all practical purposes from a real firearm and (b) is neither a de-activated firearm nor itself an antique.

    More information on the VCRA can be found HERE

    Counterfeit Goods

    Do not advertise fake, counterfeit or imitation goods on airgunforum.co.uk. This includes items with branding that seeks to replicate that of others, as well those with logos and names that have been altered slightly to imitate other brands but circumvent copyright law.


    Sales/trade/swaps of live animals/reptiles are not allowed on this forum.

    Under 18s

    No one under the age of 18 is allowed to buy or sell airguns via this forum; it is your responsibility to ensure that both the buyer and seller are 18 or older.

    Competitions & Raffles

    1. Friendly competitions and raffles may be held by members to celebrate post count achievements; i.e. 1,000, 2,000, 3,000 etc. however, these must be free to enter and only airgun related items may be given away.

    2. Fees for entry or cash prizes can only take place with the express, written permission of the airgunforum.co.uk site owner or a member of the moderation team. Failure to do this could lead to laws being broken under the UK’s Gambling Commission’s regulations.
