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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    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.

  4. PLEASE READ
    You are breaking the forum rules if there is no comment on a sales or wanted thread by either the buyer or seller. 
    Or regarding to members manufacturing things stating something is going to be discussed and initiated through pm.
    I.e. 
    A buyer in manufactured section hi I’m interested in some work by you pm incoming.
    Or seller in a wanted add, hi I can do that for you pm incoming regarding it.
    Or a normal sale, hi I want to buy your item
    If a manufacturer gets asked privately about a sale they should say to the prospective buyer please comment on my thread to adhere to forum rules.

  6. 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.

(SOLD) Walther Rm8 .177

    For sale is my Walther RM8 0.177

    Purchased as used from a local RFD back in May this year when I returned to shooting after a long gap. Initially used the rifle for garden target practice to get my accuracy up to scratch ready for hunting rabbits in my permission. Since then it has taken out over 40 rabbits at my comfortable range of 25~33m. I can also hit targets (spinners) at 45m consistently and 50m reasonably consistently - but I do not suggest hunting at those ranges.

    I’ve tried to show the little dings on the rifle, it’s not in bad shape, and for someone starting hunting I think it’s ideal - accuracy and you don’t have to worry about it coming up against a bush or fence.

    The date on the bottle is 2017 and the RFD said it was 780fps (11.2) when I bought it, and have no reason to doubt him. It has been spot on, accuracy wise, when I’ve been target shooting or hunting.

    The two targets in the picture were shot yesterday, one by myself and the other by my wife - five shots each, in the garden, bench rested at 20m (and I'm not disclosing who shot which).

    I’m only selling the RM8 as I have replaced it with a Regal. I would have kept the RM8 for my wife, who is getting into the sport, but it’s rather heavy for her so we’ll have to shop for something more suitable as she’s not having my Regal.

    Rifle includes:
    Moderator,
    Original fill probe,
    Two 8 shot magazines,
    One 3D printed two-shot magazine.
    It also has a swivel stud in the forestock for a bipod.

    Scope and mounts not included.

    Asking £280 cash on collection or bank transfer, please.

    Collection preferred, when you can try it out in my garden, or would travel a reasonable distance to meet up.

    Approved - please ensure you follow the sales rules; especially the key points below.


    Sales Rules - Important Information

    Sellers

    - Please ensure that your item is available for sale only on Airgun Forum.
    - Be sure to check for activity at least once every 24 hours. It's best to click on 'Watch Thread' to be automatically alerted to any new posts. :up:
    - First refusal at the asking / agreed price must go to the first member who commits to buy on the thread by posting "I'll take it" or similar. This takes precedent over anything otherwise agreed by PM.
    - Please keep threads updated with progress and please state "sold" when the transaction is complete so that the thread can be moved to the Sales Graveyard.

    Buyers
    - If you wish to buy the item state this on the thread - first to say they will have the item in the sales thread gets the item at the advertised or agreed price.


    Failure to follow these rules will result in temporary or permanent exclusion from the sales section or entire forum.

    Thank you for your cooperation and good luck with the sale :)
