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.

    May be looking to move this on, but don't have a clue what its worth, its a genuine Brummy made Longbow in .22. I know these were heavily influenced in the design stage by Mr Pope senior of Venom arms, it shows to in the workmanship that's gone into it. The condition is excellent, bluing is 100% stock is 99.9%, it still has the original tag and guarantee card. Its had less than a tin of pellets through it.
    The internals are genuine, other than the spring guide has been changed (Webley one is pants) and the addition of a top hat, shoots VERY nicely.
    The stock is of the bland nasty walnut variety, so I know it will not appeal to everyone and will seriously affect its value. But I cannot get the beech variety as they are no longer made.
    Any suggestions on value appreciated. :)

    (no horrible comments on the stock please, as I have already stated its awful.... :eek: )

    Got to be worth £180 in that condition, without the scope. Birmingham models are usually quite sort after.

    £250 at least more like IMO, I sold 2 of these, one was a prototype walnut stocked one and went for £300. The other was a stunning walnut example with superbly deep blueing (never seen better blueing anywhere TBH) which was also tuned nicely and that went for £350

    All things considered I think it's pitched against the HW99s & HW35k both available for under £250 brand new from the sportsman.

    Not going to get drawn on this one, but clearly, its lack of availability and provenance from the Venom stable, take it slightly above the bog standard stuff of HW............... I rest my case, but thanks for those who contributed in favor of a nice old air gun :)

    Hi Pete,
    I sold a walnut stocked .177 last year for £300 if that helps.

    Mark.

    Yep your right, some just don't know the history and quality of these. The fact you can buy a new hw for £250 wherever you want is the reason they aren't sort after used.

    Did you get my pm prosport?
