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.

  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.

    Hi guys
    I've got Xmas money burning a hole in my pocket and I think I need a springer to keep my Scorpion se company :)

    Now I've seen a mk2 that's up for £200,it looks a bit rough though,stocks going to need refurbishing and the action looks to have slight rust but I don't mind the work involved getting it nice again.

    But is the price about right for a mk2 in that condition?

    Cheers guys

    Gaz

    Lonewolf you can buy work any time. It may be worth paying a little more , and buying one thats in good condition .You can make them look good , but the action blueing will never be like original.Wood is easy to get looking nice .And £200 is expensive i think if you have to spend another £60 ponds in a refurb to make it look good.My friend as just sold his m2 for £250 and it was realy good 100% blueing stock 99% so i would have a think about it .If the conditin is as you say i looks as if its had a hard life and as not been looked after as it should have been.

    Cheers Andy&old git.

    I hear what your saying,and I've just stumbled across a much nicer looking one with a scope,3tins of pellets,gun bag,for £250.......but its a hours drive both ways:(

    I've got £220 to play with and not a penny more,local private sales probably my only way of getting a good one.

    Saying that id settle for any good springer :)

    A nice one will come along thats in your budget just bide your time
    I waited for ages to get mine at the right price and i had ti have walnut:)
    I only thought of selling it on as its a .22 and i originally wanted a .177 but mine is near mint just 2 little nicks by the scope mounts and i could not get £300 for it
    Blessing really as i would have kicked myself if it had sold:)

    I bought a really beat up looking MarkI for a premium once. It had no rust, but it was worn thin and the stock was rough. I bought it anyway because it shot like a dream. Not all TX's are capable of the same accuracy and this one is one of the best, so I bit the bullet. If you can try the gun, and it groups very good, buy it.

    I would pay more for a nice mk1/mk2 as the shorter stroke makes it much easier to shoot than the mk3 Brian Sampson got second place in the Ft world championships in Germany with a mk1 TX or if the gun is really rough i would by it and put the piston in a mint mk3.
