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.

    Just been searching around online and cant seem to find the going rate for a used daystate regal in good nick?

    My local has a sale on all daystate at the minute and the regal is £720ish with a free moderator and extra mag if bought before july. Would £500 seem right for a used example with 1 mag? :s thanks for any input

    Compared to what they usually retail for £720 is a good price for a new one. Daystate seem to be doing a fair amount of promo stuff atm - flagging sales perhaps?

    £500 seems reasonable for a used one too; although it's probably worth doing a bit of digging as it's a buyer's market and higher priced stuff (DS in particular) seems hard to shift currently.

    UK is currently a Buyers Market - 2nd hand normally around a third off current retail -

    Depends on how desperate the seller wants to sell it and the Buyer - Buy it -

    I paid £720 for mine but had a job to sell the pile of rubbish and that's being polite about the Regal.
    I think the regal has become a pain in the backside for Daystate,with all the problems they have , stiff bolt, under powered , coating coming of the shroud and trigger guard

    That's a pity, because for every poor gun there are dozens of good ones, and the poor ones get sorted FOC under warranty.

    I've got 2, one had a stiff bolt, but now fine - both lovely guns and shoot great, they are a joy to use.

    I would be looking at second hand only so warranty is out of the question for me. I would only take one second hand if it was local and it could see/test it first hand.

    I Bought a new Regal in 177. After about 100 shots the bolt stiffens, after 200 it has seized completely. It was supposedly repaired under warranty at only 5 days old but the fault remained. It was replaced twice with both replacements had the same fault. It took me 5 weeks to get a refund and only after starting county court proceedings against the retailer. My local dealer has sent 4 brand new regals back for the same fault.
    Do not buy a Daystate Regal!!!!!!!!

    Don't worry I wont. Innit a shame though that posts like these are appearing on these forums? At this rate I reckon they got about another 6 months before it all turns to **** for 'em.:(
