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.

    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.

    Looking and researching the new Walther Lgu, its seems to be pretty good upto now!

    I really fancy one, but im not sure what to do? Go and buy one or go with the more established brand AA and buy a tx200 instead..? Decisions lol

    Any feedback on the Lgv?

    Seems they shot themselves in the foot with the LGV!
    Although the LGU is in its Infancy they seemed to have developed quite a following already.

    I should have said a more established rifle really! But.. They really do look interesting! Same internals as Lgv which is good from what im lead to believe?

    I have had a few Tx's, a few 77s so i know what to expect with those two rifles.. The Lgv is definitely the wild card!

    Cheers.. Will do a search but what was it that put you off about them?

    The fault from what ive researched into isnt a fault according to walther.. The scoring/marks happen in the first 5/10 shots, do not effect the rifle in anyway.. They also have stated they are tested /fired over 50k times and no parts had failed.. Not sure what to believe at the moment

    If you look on Blackpool air rifles Facebook page I think there were some issues with scoring on the cylinder, after ready the post this issues seems resolved now.

    A Guy was shooting one at WAR to day hitting small spinners at 45 yards kneeling consistently, obviously he was a good shot but seemed pretty good to me. quite heavy but no more that a TX, 97k or my Diana 52 good price as well, seems a nice gun

    I was at my club ( greyhound) with My Tx , The day they came out, there were three lgu's to have a go with, One developed a fault on day one, when shot the under lever would drop out of its detent. Other than this they all shot much better than a standard TX. Very smooth shot cycle, quite a lot of recoil but very soft. The big problem agreed by all who owned them was that the trigger is rubbish, the TX is far superior in this department. My TX is far from standard, and is far better than the LGU. Simmo The lad who runs the club now has his LGU up for sale says it all really.

    I've had a few TX's and recently bought a 97 thumbhole which I kept for a couple of months with the intention of going back to a TX. The Walther was at my local gun shop (Boyces) and Carl said just try it in the small range at the back of the shop just to see how it feels. What a gun!!
    It felt smooth with slight kick streight back recoil. The look of the gun is definatly TX but the bluing on mine was evan better than TX/97. When I got it to the open air range I couldn't believe the accuracy! Even at 50+ yards it was amazing! It's a gun you don't want to put down and all the bull about tuned TX's being just as good is just that, bull. The Walther dousn't need to be tuned because it's smack on in the first place. Can't wait to have another do!!

    you need to try a properly tuned TX side by side with the LG then you would realise which one is Bull ****.

    I have also been considering these untill i picked one up in RFD.... Build quality was second to none and looked very well engineered, but the weight was just wayyy to much...the 97k in plastic stock i picked up imediatly after felt like a little contour.

    They didnt have an LGV in stock but im hopeing they are more suited to myself.

    LGV just as heavy, so may put you of, if you can shoot one, you may find the weight to your advantage. I have been brought up with heavy guns so find they are more stable. I cannot shoot light weights like S400 etc wave about in the wind lol ;)

    I think one of the main criticisms in the air gun press was the two 'o'rings on the end of the cocking lever,a bit heath robinson they thought, a sought of last minute afterthought.Oh and i think it was Nigel Allen wasn't keen on the idea of the cocking link bearing directly against the stock without a slipper pad.

    I've got one of these. To start with I was a bit unsure about it but the more I shoot it the more I love it. I've had a tuned tx200, hw97v mached and now a LGU which I've done nothing to and I'm hitting things with it that I used to struggle with the other two. It's smooth to shoot, far more accurate than any shooter will ever be and built dare I say better than TX or HW, and for a fraction of the price. It's a no brainer. Try one if you can and you'll see what I mean.

    this is absolutely true , I have got one and it is , heavy , but very forgiving and accurate . in a nutshell, a very easy springer to shoot.
    it is not hype ! adjust the trigger a little and voila , the dogs danglies . imho .
