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.

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.

    Hi Trebz...did you get my PM's on Gundeals ??


    Yes..apparently you did...gundeals air gun forum is very rarely used, it's very good for shot guns (and news crap), but you'll get much better airgun info here.
    As has been said, AA S410's on the secondhand market are few and far between and a good one won't be cheap either. On the plus side, if you do get one you'll have a damned good rifle. I have just bought a new one and I wish I'd done it much sooner.

    Damn my pesky eyes....i wish i'd never seen the bl**dy S410 hehe

    Im in a bit of a pickle i'll admit. Ive just turned one down for £450. I just fell into some personal financial problems, brought on by a clerical mistake by the taxman, hence my tight budget.

    I guess i'll have to make do with my HW77.....at least if i miss the shot i can throw the old thing at them or club them to death !!

    Weight a tonne and makes a right old racket.

    I just need a good quality pre charged .177 kit complete with bottle. I'd like a multishot but im not that fussed anymore, i just want something quiet, reliable and light. Ive not got a problem self loading, i just liked the idea of a quick 2nd shot, although i shoot i dont like the thought of my quarry dying slowly. It takes seven weeks to re load my HW77!! I have to pre book my reloading for crikeys sake !!

    :)

    The sale was for rifle and scope only and it was in Milton Keynes if i remember correctly. Nice enough chap.

    Im in Doncaster so it would have been something like a 6 hour round trip, im guessing.

    Dead Post !!

    All

    Today i became the proud owner of an Air Arms S410 Classic in .22 Cal, complete with 3ltr / 300 Bar Air bottle and gun bag.

    I bought it from a nice chap just off Junc 22 of the M1. I found the rifle for sale in the RSS feeds section of one of the airgun forums.

    I snapped up the kit for a great price, £400 for the rifle, scope and bottle. The guy even threw in a pack of unopened 'Air Bullets'. I'll not be using these for my huntinghowever as im not sure they are right for the rifle.

    Many thanks for the help and advice / patience of the chaps here on the forum.

    Happy shooting all.

    Trebz

    Hi Buzz

    Yup, your right, a cracking deal.

    I took the stock off as soon as i got home to check it's general condition, it's beautiful. I found two very slight and i mean very slight scratches on the stock but you have to look for them. The action itself doesnt have a single mark on it. The Air Arms silencer however has a few little scuff marks on the very tip, i think these would cover ok with a little black enamel paint but i'll not be bothering. the scope it spotless, like new, not sure of the manufacturer though, not seen the badge before, it looke like this: 'EI3'

    The bottle is, well, a bottle. Yallow and full of air.

    My only gripe about it so far is that it's an older model, without the safety.

    Im happy. Yay!
