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.

    '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.

    Made by Hydro Tech with whip and gauge. Only a few weeks left before a re test is required but hardly ever gets used as I only have 12m garden, no perms and air top ups are free down at my range so still got air in it.

    Any idea what it's worth please guys ?

    I'd agree if were not out of test, but that's typicaly £25+ and also a risk and hassle for the buyer, so £70 is more my take on it.

    There was a brand new 3L bottle on here a little while ago and it was around a while - I think it got £90 to £100, but that had a full test. I would say £65 to £70 as it stands.....or get it tested and then £100 to £110.

    Someone is more likely to buy if it has a test as there is no risk from their side then.

    I would suggest around £60 nuggets, remember that the buyer is taking a risk. Why not get it re-tested and bang it out for a century, it'll give the buyer confidence.

I had it up for £150 (new was £199) and was getting pi$$taking offers of £100 - £120 so I decided to keep it ...I had it on FB and one guy offered £100 and said he can get a refurbed 7ltr with a new test for £130 but the shop didn't have any in stock at the moment :handjob: I said I could do him one for £50 when I don't have any to sell :facepalm:

    I appreciate that it would be a much more attractive proposition if it had a new ticket on it and the MOT analogy is spot on. Normally I'd done it already but I'm without transport atm so it would be a pita but may be I just gota bite the bullet.

    Thanks for the input guys. :up:

    Sold one of mine about 4 month back for 100, after getting a retest that cost me 30 odd quid. I'd say put it up for 100, with offers, and take the first over 75. Can always drop the price a bit, if it still round after a bit :)

    Cheers mate, just looked and it didnt say. Also doing the 7l bottles for the same price. A 5l would be handy for taking to the range.
