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.

    No riskier than a delivery of vegetables from Asda.

    Common sense.

    As @r10hunter posted above, your responsibility to comply with local laws.

    there are no legal issues with it whatsoever - it is simply a co2 powered mag fed bb shooter - and if there were then it would not be on sale in the UK. Without wishing to appear rude to r10hunter a simple internet search would have yielded the spec without appearing to scare the OP with a statement about it possibly being illegal

    European / UK and US specs on many guns are not the same. I don’t have the time to do the research but just suggested anyone importing anything gun related checks very carefully with the shop supplying it what the spec actually is.
    Because anything gun shaped is going to be checked by UK customs if it comes from the US.

    The one on the French site :
    CROSMAN DPMS SBR CO2 FULL AUTO ASSAULT RIFLE - .177 BB BORE (3 JOULE)

    I don't think full auto is allowed here - even BB guns!

    You are correct, Partially. Full auto is not allowed for firearms. BB guns can have full auto.;):thumb:

    No they can’t be unless they only fire a plastic BB at a power of under 0.9 ftlbs.

    I was perfectly correct r10.
    I stated that it is not legal to own a full auto firearm. Steel BB firers are actual firearms. Plastic ones are not.:thumb:

    I don't follow. Plastic BB firing guns are not classed as firearms in our law. Hence machine guns and allsorts are allowed for airsoft gaming etc. The Crosman Full auto mentioned earlier is an air rifle under our law and hence full auto is not allowed.

    I know so do you but above is wrong.
    Plastic firing BB guns are firearms if over 1.3 joules in Auto or if over 2.5 joules in non Auto. Under that value RIF law applies.
    Metal BB firing guns are always firearms.

    But there aren't any airsoft guns over these limits are there? Pedantics really.

    “57A Exception for airsoft guns (1) An “airsoft gun” is not to be regarded as a firearm for the purposes of this Act. (2) An “airsoft gun” is a barrelled weapon of any description which - (a) is designed to discharge only a small plastic missile (whether or not it is also capable of discharging any other kind of missile), and (b) is not capable of discharging a missile (of any kind) with kinetic energy at the muzzle of the weapon that exceeds the permitted level.

    And for air weapons :
    Section 5 of the Firearms Act 1968 contains various descriptions. Any ‘air weapons’ (kinetic energy of 1 joule or higher) that fall within any of the following definitions are prohibited weapons. 1. “Any firearm which is so designed or adapted that two or more missiles can be successively discharged without repeat pressure on the trigger” [Section 5(1)(a)] e.g. this means fully automatic and burst fire weapons of any type are banned.
