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.

    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.

    There are many good springers that I can think of, maybe the best all-round spring gun is the Weihrauch HW95 or 95K (carbine version) another good one is the BSA Supersport.

    Weihrauch make the best springers, any of their models (cheap ones aside) would be very nice, the HW80 is a brilliant gun.

    for a nice starter rifle the hw99 takes some beating,
    but if your after something a bit more up market then go for a prosport.
    if your interested in buying an older spring gun then the webley omega and the fwb 124 sport are two of the best spring guns ever produced.

    for break barrels the hw80 is still the number one but it is heavy the hw95 is lighter and also a very good gun the webley stingray 11 is a really nice gun for the money and offers fantastic value accuracy and reliability i have a couple of different hw80s and a pair of stingray 11 rifles i would go with either of those as the hw95 has one problem and that is they are very close to the legal limit and with some pellets are shooting over the limit straight out of the box

    Forgot to mention the TX200, good gun, retails at about £250-£300 :up: Rockabilly mentioned the Pro Sport, this is basically a TX200 but with a nice(er) stock, no real difference internally, these cost £340 or £400 if you want the walnut stock.

    HI, i have the HW 95 and it shoots over the limit by a pound or so from new . My gun is an older version though but is a lovely gun with a good trigger.

    Am in the process of getting the power lowered as i don't want any trouble from the law!!
