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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

  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.

    Has anyone had any dealings with them? I ordered a new S510 last Friday through my local RFD, they confirmed it was in stock and stated it would arrive at my RFD for collection on Friday just gone. It has not arrived and there has been no contact from them at all? Just want to know if this is normal for them, as you all know what it's like waiting for a new rifle and for it not to arrive when stated!

    Recent same question was asked on Facebook and lots of the sane poor service reports

    Their mail order side of things is very poor, they also list everything on their website but often it is not in stock & you end up waiting a long time to get your gear. Best to actually ring up first & check they have it in stock & collect to avoid disappointment.

    I remember phoning to see if they had the 1412 Annie in which was stated on phone they have in stock . I ordered it and was told on the weds that it would be at my local gunsmiths on the Friday , honest to . I waited 3 weeks! Every time I rang them I kept on getting the same BS that it will be there tomorrow a such . I ended out with a small discount as for the long wait which was rubbish ..

    Just out of interest, why did you not request that your local dealer order in the rifle for you rather than buying from elsewhere and getting it delivered there..?

    Delt with a chap called Aaron in their mail order department recently, both by phone and email; he was very efficient and responsive.

    I collected my gun from the Dorset store two days after ordering and all was present and correct.

    I have nothing but praise for them from my two dealings with them so far and their prices are second to none (and if you can find it cheaper, they'll price match).

    Thread here seems to be that you're better to talk directly with them rather than going through the website.

    They told me last time I was in they've had problems with other rogue dealers hijacking there website and using there stock to sell on hence there trying to stop it. The web site is not up to date. As much better to ring and talk direct.
