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.

  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.

    I was hoping the Terrus would be more reasonably priced ?

    Just a bog standard spring piston rifle that would respond well to a good tune up.

    It'll be interesting to see what price the LGU will sell at. As it looks essentially the same as the the other 2 popular under levers on the market I should imagine it would have to be around the same to even get a look in.

    Looks like a cheapend LGV (no barrel lock lever) designed for the domestic and UK markets (max 16J, marginally less angular, more sporty stock). I suspect it'll be priced somewhere between the HW95 and HW97..

    Yeah, although consider the price of the LGVs and the fact that they're probably less work to make than the underlever..

    Interesting.. begs the question why the LGV was so bloody expensive when it initially hit our shores.. greedy UK wholesaler perhaps? I suspect Air Arms aren't too happy about the LGU (It really does look like a blatant and unerring copy of the TX - right down to the anti-beartrap :rolleyes:).

    Tbh I still can't see it selling that well against the TX (to the informed buyer at least) given that the trigger's not as adjustable, there's no heritage, stock aesthetics / (probably) ergonomics won't be as good and (if the LGV is owt to go by) the quality of some bits and the finish will be inferior. The only potential redeeming feature I can think of is if the LGU uses a better breech seal / cylinder lock up than the shonky non-effort on the TX - although they've probably just copied that straight too :eek:

    The Terrus model hasn't been mentioned anywhere to my knowledge, so who knows what the price might be ? and a tuned model off the shelf is unlikely.

    If the LGU does come in a £350 will the price of the LGV come down in price, and the Terrus model be a match price wise for the Hw99s ?

    As above the Terrus just looks like a cheaper, stripped back, feature-limited LGV. I doubt they'd go as far as removing the bits that afford it's "tuned from the box" status, though. As for hitting the shelves at an HW99-esq price; dream on IMO - I reckon it'll be knocking on the door of 300 sheets easily.

    Only time will tell my 4 leaf friend, the Terrus may not even hit our shores,

    but if it does, its got to be somewhat cheaper than a LGV Challenger ?
