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.

    '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.'

  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.

    Anyone seen the fx revolution in the flesh? Anyone used one?

    Saw it in a mag and thought it looked great. Then read it was a semi automatic. I think I'm in love. Great for handicapped person like me. Just wondering what they're like in action.

    hello, these are FAC unless they do a sub 12ft llb in the UK, look at the reviews and cost. not many shots per fill, semi auto uses the air to quick load but you can do just as good with a vermy mk2 and far more shots.

    A guy at the club has something that looks like that. I'm fairly sure it's an old RWS model though.

    Oh, that's a shame. Is there any sub 12 non FAC semiautomatic rifles out there?

    There's an unwritten rule between the home office and the gun makers,they aren't banned but they won't import or make them.

    I think you can have smoothbore though,but that's a waste of time.

    Companys out side the uk have have no issue importing them in to u but the laws regarding importing air rifles has just changed along with having facair with no license so that maximum sentance is now life so not really worth the risk if it comes in hot life is a long time (thanks kalibrgun uk and freinds ) atvb daveg


    Copyied from a law thread else where


    Changes have occurred yesterday (effective 14 July 2014) regarding the ownership of firearms (that definition includes Air Guns!) re section 21 of the Firearms Act 1968 via the Anti Social Behaviour Act 2014 etc.

    Note that Antique Firearms (includes Air Guns) can not now be possessed by certain persons;

    This could be a work in progress.......Know your Law!

    Further reading from another thread;

    ''Section 5-1-ab
    any self-loading or pump-action rifled gun other than one which is chambered for .22 rim-fire cartridges;

    So if it has a rifled barrel, and is self loading and isn't a 22rf its a section 5 firearm.''

    The blowback guns are trigger indexing not self loading so they get around it.

    I'm not sure about that, but, either way, irrelevant to the question of legality.

    Since they don't insert a cartridge, but merely a projectile (and don't have rifled barrels), they don't legally qualify as self-loading.

    From a practical position, I believe they are self-loaders, which is my preferred term for the oft used semi-automatic.

    It all depends on whether they are fired from the magazine if they do its legal.
