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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.

    Hi folks

    I have a Harper Wolf with a metal stock in 22, and wondered roughly what its worth. Its 20 years old, and has a history of having shot a few hundred rabbits, squirrels, and rats!

    Can't really help with price i'm afraid...I had the pistol version...I think there is a rheostat inside the pistol grip...they were known for being able to run a bit "hot"....mine used to shake other pellets out of the magazine on firing it...so you need to find a pellet that suits the Mag & seat them well...they seemed well built..but I suppose you know all of this...I used to be attracted to quirky stuff..!

    Quite rare & collectable..someone better equipped will be along to give better advice...:up:

    It's a great bit of kit, l can shoot 11 pellets in 4 seconds from it. I don't want to sell it by the way, l just wondered what the going rate is.
    I also have the pistol, same workings as the rifle.

    Very nice & tasty, plus pretty rare these days from what I know.
    I would email Tony Belas (Daystate)about this: tony@daystate.com

    Steve H did some brilliant work & designed or help to design a lot of stuff....

    Yeah, it works off a 9volt battery, and has never let me down in 20 years. Not the same battery of course!

    Just as said above...share your findings/knowledge with us...have a look on the review section to get an idea.:up:

    Also give Danny Garvin @Garvin2 a message & he might include your two Harper's in his great Vintage Airgun Gallery.

    Hi going to try and help with a valuation.
    In 2018 these on average were selling for about £325 to £400 without the steel stock. I would say now they would be about £450 to £500. But could be more. I'd say this is a gun for the future. I'm a gun collector and I would not want one yet in my collection has it is just not old enough for me. That's why I say it is a future gun that will definitely rocket in price. Hope this helps you. It's a great gun to keep and enjoy.

    Hi there, sound advice. Its one of those guns that has the 'l want' appeal to it,and some will pay anything... within reason, for it due to its unique power adjustment. I was actually offered £650 for it last year, but l don't want to sell it. In 20 years shooting with it, it has never let me down. It's accurate, full 12lb pressure, and weighs about 4lb.
    Also,my grandson has his eye on it!

    Hi nigel
    Yes definitely if someone wants one they will pay. My valuation was just a educated guess but I still say one for the future. I have a bsa stutzen and that's another gun for the future but I'm the same as you I just couldn't sell it love it's looks and love to shoot it. Enjoy your gun and we will both have lucky sons or grandsons that will have very rare guns.
    Regards Dave
