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.'

  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.

    A couple of years ago whilst looking for a newer air rifle for 10m target shooting I picked up a Walther LGM2 single stroke pneumatic in excellent condition. It’s way more accurate than I’ll ever be and is an absolute joy to shoot.

    I’ve been trying to find out more about it and the rest of Walther’s line of pre PCP pneumatic match air rifles. There’s a fair amount of information about the LGR but I haven’t found a lot about the LGM1, LGM2 or anything else in this line from Walther. Does anyone know anything about them - list of models, history, manufacturing dates, differences etc?

    DrGunn,

    I have a Walther LG90, and it is still the most accurate air rifle I have ever shot :)

    Information is very thin on the ground for the LG90, CG90 (CO2), LGM-1, LGM-2, & LG-210 (last of the Walther SSPs).

    Have fun & a good weekend :)

    Best regards

    Russ

    So there were a fair number of different models between the LGR and the PCPs (must...resist...urge...to...collect :confused:) Any idea what time period they developed / released these over?

    Thanks, yes it is a fantastic gun. It’s amazing to shoot - well balanced, excellent trigger and a smooth shot cycle.

    Thanks those are great and show the history and evolution of Walthers lineup perfectly.
    I’d love to recreate that lineup with the real things on my wall...

    I've got the lgm1, don't know much about but it is exceptionally accurate and a joy to use.

    DrGunn,

    I have the Walther LG55 & LGV Olympia 'springers', and the LG90 SSP, and they are all a joy to shoot.

    If I had the spare monies, I too would try and get the rest of the line-up :)

    Have fun & a good weekend :)

    Best regards

    Russ

    Sadly I doubt it’s something I will be able to do. Between us we have 5 of the 15 on the poster...
