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.

  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 own a BSA Meteor and recently decided that I wanted to upgrade to a PCP rifle.
    I was just wondering how much I could sell it for in decent condition. Anyone have any idea?
    Also, what PCP rifle would you recommend for abot 300 pounds and charging kit for about 100 pounds?

    Meteor price range is usually £40 - £65'ish....but there are so many variables. Meteors are sought after, so don't be too hasty to let it go! What I'm saying is don't let it go on the first offer.
    Two months ago I sold my Mk5 .177 for £75, and just last week my Mk5 .22 went for £85. Both of them were in immaculate refurbished condition - and both were very accurate over 25mtrs. Both carried a cheap Nikko Stirling 4x32 scope. Neither had open sights fitted, I'd sold these separately at £35 a set on the bay. The money from these sales basically allowed me to buy a 6month old Weihrauch HW57 complete with scope.
    Good luck with your sale matey.

    Sorry, missed this bit out...
    For £300 you'd be looking for a used AA S200, or maybe S400. BSA Ultra or a Brocock Concept would be a little less than £300 in my opinion.
    A 3ltr air bottle...should be able to get one for around a ton. Be careful of its manufacture date though because it could end up costing more than a new bottle if you need to get it tested/inspected soon.

    Not sure of the MK.

    I'm not sure of the MK but I got it 4 or 5 years ago, so quite probably a MK 5 or 6. I can't upload any pictures at the moment but the stock is in good condition with a few hardly noticeable scratches. The action works well although the blueing isn't great anymore. I've replaced a few screws, but everything sits tightly, although last week the end cap bent and cracked, and I haven't replaced it yet. Do you think I should or not? Also, I'd like to keep the scope, so how much would it fetch without a sighting system?

    I have been doing a bit of research into mine and it sounds like you have a mark 6. If there is a plastic cap on the rear of the cylinder and a hard plastic but plate with circle in the middle then that's the case.

    Bhodge also told me about mark 6 serial number prefixes below:

    .22 versions having the serial number starting with 'WE', .177 with ZE.

    Good luck with the sale, valuations above seem right to me. All the best, Rob
