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.

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.

    I see you have posted this twice ! Are you taking the Mickey ,
    His inference was that I was only showing pics ( IE Or are you only showing us you have them ?? )
    I was unaware that by posting pics you had to sell them ?

    We have had a good relationship for a number of years, Why the assault ?

    Have to say Ged that I didn't know if you was just showing them or if they were possibly for sale either, I just didn't see why you should accuse him of having a bad attitude when it simply wasn't clear?

    My recently purchased Blue Streak has been resealed and I have restored the stock with CCL oil. Luckily the black spots were quite superficial.
    I've fallen in love with this American classic. It has also triggered my interest in other vintage US airguns.
    Shall do an accuracy and velocity test soon. I've only just found out how the rear sight can be adjusted; with a push and pull type of screw system.
    This airgun has a nice feel to it.
    Tom Gaylord aka BB Pelletier has written some nice reports about it. Part 1: https://www.pyramydair.com/blog/2016/07/sheridan-blue-streak-part-1/
    UJ Backus, another American gentleman, has written a book about the Silver and Blue Streak. http://ujays.net/sheridan.html
    Next on my wishlist is a Blue Streak that needs repair and tlc; it will be interesting to learn about its internals.
    Btw I have also bought a Crosman Town & Country 108. This is also a multi pump airgun, which was Crosman's top model. Production ran for one year, in 1949.
    It was above the airgunners budgets of that time, at 24.95 USD.
    I have bought it from a collector in Virginia, and will have it shipped over.
    Cheers, Louis

    Thread a bit out of date, wondered what the current supply/demand is for older Blue Streak models (.20)?

    Cheers,

    I would think that the supply of C series Blue/Silver Streaks is limited while demand remains pretty high -- a good Sheridan will always sell.

    I am probably being a bit nostalgic having one many years ago, always remember those first shots - "it's not working"

    ..until I noticed the wood backstop splitting in two..

    Any recommendations for modern day equivalent, ideally .22 and with pumped chamber as opposed to C02, Crossman perhaps?

    Thanks, that looks great and very similar to the Sheridan I owned.

    There's a Sheridan for sale on free ads but doesn't share that angled pump lever, possibly a much later model after being purchased by Benjamin.

    Mine was more like this Silver Streak although memory not 100%



    I'll look into the Benjamin 392 a bit more, cheers.

    That’s indeed a later one. Either a CB (1990-97ish, I think) or a CB9 (post 97ish). I think a CB9, but they look quite similar. The giveaway is the flare on the fore end. The Benjamin 392 is basically the same as them apart from calibre.

    With Sheridans, the older ones are usually a bit better than the newer ones. The only advantage to the later ones is that from the mid/late 80s they were factory drilled and tapped for the Williams peep sight. My personal C9 is one of them, from 1988.

    c9a 2nd or 3rd variant and looks to be the one a mate sent a pic of asking if the price it was at was worth it

    Not been on for a while,
    This bickering & Name calling is one reason ,
    I have a number of projects at the moment, However some members look for flaws in any posts ?
    Name calling & Derogatory remarks < Despite the Forum rules get away with it .

    Just for the record, I think Co2 is one the best Formats for an airgun ( I did not say the best, More convenient )
    It is more than capable of the UK limit , Convenience is the real key here IMO,
    I would normally paste Pics of MY Favourites, Which I have & Will sell on , As long as they are collected However !
