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.

Question To sell, or not to sell, that is the question...

    OK, I like my Logun Dominator but I wanted even more shots per fill and I may be going FAC air at some point. Because I like the Dominator so much, I've bought a Logun Gladiator which is having the barrel and cylinder shortened. This will result in something about the length of an Ultra but with massive shot count.

    Additionally, now that I have the rimfire and centrefire rifles the air rifles just won't be used very often and, when they do, the Logun Gladiator and a backup springer will be going for the trip.

    So, that leaves me with the following:

    Logun Dominator
    Weihrauch HW95 Luxus in .22
    Weihrauch HW95 in .20
    Weihrauch HW99s in .177 (also has a .22 barrel and shorter mainspring for calibre swapping :D )
    Theoben Sirocco

    The Weihrauch HW95 Luxus was bought recently to fettle and gift to a friend but the selfish git went and got a PCP :rolleyes: while I was monkeying on with the Luxus so I ended up keeping it. It was bought new a few months ago and I stripped it, deburred, made a top hat and spring guide and shortened the mainspring. It's pootling along at 11.1 with Superdomes and 11.5 with JSB Exact :)

    So, given that there's no way I'm going to have the time to use the above my plan is to stick with the Gladiator as my PCP and one springer, probably keeping the Sirocco as well.

    Selling always incurs a loss but keeping them is largely pointless given that I now have even less time to use them than before, and more options regarding what to use.

    So, would you, wouldn't you, should I, shouldn't I ?

    Quite the dilemma

    Well, you never get back what you sink into them anyway, regardless of whether things slow down or not.

    I don't need to sell them but, frankly, I'm running out of space due to other interests.

    I'm at the stage of having to move stuff to get at other stuff :rolleyes:

    If I was to sell the majority of my rifles I would definitely consign them with my local rfd for private sale through their shop.
    I could reach a bigger audience and ask what I want, plus I would not have the headache of photographing and paying for advertising and postage.

    but all that said, I think you should pack them away for now and see how you feel once winter knocks on your door. Its nice to have a few projects through the winter months, and springers are perfect for this.

    I would keep the .20 and Theoben and sell the rest. I would also keep the Dominator, but with your 1 pcp rule that would have to go too.....is it an ambi stock? If it is I could think of a very good home for it :D

    you could always keep the Luxus for a project and sell the .20. You know you will be needing a project at some point :up:

    cheers

    I'm still thinking of cutting this to a realistic number - it seems to make the most sense.

    Once the Gladiator comes back from being shortened in a week or two I will have 2 multi-shot PCPs; obviously I only need one.

    I will probably sell locally through folks I know - I doubt I will have many problems shifting the guns; everyone who has tried the springers has been bowled over by them :)

    The op is asking for advice only :rolleyes:
