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.

    It looks like a nice rifle.
    I would appreciate any comments please - pros and cons as I am a real beginner (again).
    Thanks.

    Thanks for replies.
    Yes - second hand - hardly used - with zip case for £50.00p.
    Might be able to get it for a bit less.
    I will be giving it a good strip and clean first.
    I believe it has a two stage trigger with a bit of creep.
    Will be used for plinking and pigeons and rats at 15 feet !!

    Thanks again.

    Don't mess around! BUY IT...... At that price you are getting a great Springer. Go on to Welsh Willy's web site and get the tune up kit and trigger upgrade then onto the UK Chinese air gun forum (UKCAF) and check out the xs19 stripdown guide.
    Those that don't know about these rifle's will always knock them because it's an SMK but they are the basis for a number of manufacturers.
    Once you have done your fettling you will have a very accurate rifle, the one I had (.22) would hit the spinners out at 55y all day long and always put a smile on my face, and I would happily put it up against any HW springer, and yes I have shot and have access to HW's

    Thanks for the wonderful positive comments.
    It is a .22 rifle.
    He has put it away for me and will wait for payment.
    He is a fellow Ham Radio operator and only lives abot 6 miles away.
    The Welsh Willy kits - yes I will go for one.
    I just want a silencer and scope.
    Silencer as I am in an enclosed garden and I imagine the rifle will be pretty noisy.
    I am waiting to get my BSA Scorpion pistol back - now that is noisy.
    Thanks again all.

    + on the crosshairs !!

    Best wishes.

    Wouldn't have thought a silencer is necessary,after all there's not much muzzle noise from a springer unlike a PCP.Most of the noise,from what there is, will come from the pellets hitting the metal pellet catcher assuming you'll be using one and providing you don't use it at unsociable hours that shouldn't be a problem.

    I have a hw moderator on mine and it does make a difference, it's more to stop the neighbours from getting annoyed by the muzzle crack. And it's a handy cocking aid.

    Got a shroud on mine and its a lot quieter than standard, with a little work they can be superb, I kept the standard spring, and fitted an o ring piston head among other things, You have to sort the trigger though.
