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.

    Thank you.

  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.

    hello, always like to see new design air rifles so whats you views on this one??????????????? seems very innovated and the price looks well within reach of springer addicts, Mc Avoys a bit over £300, but its a tad heavy at 4.3kg, so is this a rifle to contend with AAs HWs. what you think forum members? cheers.

    just think its odd ... not looking but i would like to see what of the technological advancements that the LGV made are carried over
    this claim seems odd as there barrel latch offered this ... fixed barrel guarantees high and constant precision ..
    and not sure the trigger was ever as good as a record or cd unit but terry doe gets one tomorrow and so do two other respected tuners so i will wait and see

    It looks like they have priced them to compete with the HW and the TX, look forward to reading the reviews.

    I just dont like these walther springers. I tried the lgv and didnt get on with it and to mee it just didnt feel quality?
    I feel like theyre just winging it on the walther name personally.
    Just my opinion

    I feel the same. Bought an LGV and sold it the next day. Yes it's accurate but it didn't look like it was "quality made in Germany". The piston looked like being from post WW2 China lathe, the blueing was very thin and machine marks could be seen all over the receiver. Pot metal trigger housing with plastic trigger. I didn't like the stock either, it felt like a brick (Talking about the LGV Master here).

    Yes, it was accurate, but that's about it. It didn't feel right to me and I couldn't built up an emotional confident feel to that rifle.

    Umarex likes to use their "bought brands" to sell expensive cheapo stuff.

    Where is this LGV made? I guess Turkey. Maybe even Spain. Who knows...

    Stock - Italy
    Barrel - Lothar Walther? (Blueing on barrel was perfect btw, only part from Germany my guess...)
    Other parts - ???
    Assembled - Arnsberg

    If this is anything like the LGV I tried of Jim Tyler's then I might be tempted once more to try a springer and at £300 it's probably a no brainer. I bought the 97 and the 200 just as the LGV came out and flogged them both as they did me no favours or me them. However the LGV was a completely different experience. I would have happily shot that gun in competition.
