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.

    See my review Oed in the airgun reviews section. :thumb: I can honestly say it's the best blowback pellet replica I have owned or used. So much more accurate than my old 1911 BB firers.

    But this is it:

    Don't know what the BB SMLE going to look and feel like ibo7, but if I was going to buy another replica it would be the MP40, a friend down the club has one and their great fun to shoot and hold.

    I really fancy one of them but I have made a promise to myself only to have pellet airguns. I really hate BB's. I hate loading them and I hate their inaccuracy. But there are far more replica BB airguns that are damn smart.

    Got the m92 myself the other day. Made by umarex. Really nice weight blowback and stripable. Not very accurate mind but I bought it for fun shooting. I saw an m4 sort of rifle, maybe panther? Not sure, but looked and felt good. Had all the rails and stuff included,. That was a blowback too. Not sure if it was strippable though. Yeah and they had the mp40.

    I have one in full auto. It is fun but, man, you blow through a magazine quick and it takes awhile to reload it. I got a reproduction sling for it. Sometimes, when LH is vacuuming, I like to sling it up, hold it across my chest and yell, "Vacuumen! Schnell! Schnell!" She just rolls her eyes.

    My friend bought two mags for it and the repro pouches. Lots of fun.

    Some are surprisingly accurate Bill - they're not all bad mate. Some come down to bb choice, just as pellet guns.
    I don't buy them for accuracy anyway, just some good old fashioned fun plinking....;)

    Yes each to their own. I have owned loads of bb pistols but now I stick to normal lead pellets. :up:;)

    Just reading this as I have only just become a new member,I have six pistols,They do seem to come with some issues,Myself I think they could be better made and perhaps improved materials too,some of these are fairly expensive as we all know.
    I have modified the Sig Sauer P226,Made a sleeve so the barrel was a better fit to the top slide,it had around 1mm free play to begin with,same thing on the CZ 75,Which of course didn't help with accuracy.
    The Webley Revolver had a couple of poor fit issues,again I sorted it ,But shouldn't really have to.
    Having said this I do enjoy shooting these Replicas ,so I guess its a case of the way it is.:loser:

    I love the 226 but the blanked off ejector port ruins it for me. Perhaps whip the slide off and get it machined out?

    I had a 226 and to be honest I was not happy with it at all. The M17 is much better pistol. :up:
