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.

    Does anyone shoot them? The modern ones, I mean. How do they stack up with AA, Beeman, Walther, BSA, etc? Can't find a whole lot about them.

    the new webleys are built in turkey, and the quality isnt the same which is why the old brummie ones are more sought after

    Modern Webleys are made in Turkey by the Hatsan Arms Company.i believe some of the old Webley staff went and worked for Hatsan.
    Highland Outdoors are the current importers/ distributors for Webley in this country.

    As said above, mostly re-badged Hatsans at a higher price. The Alecto pistol (now discontinued?) was made by Zoraki, also in Turkey. Their range of shotguns and rimfire rifles are or similar origins. What until a dozen or so years ago was a famous British manufacturer with high standards of fit and finish (if not, ahem, design) is now a just a brand name applied to Turkish guns. Sad. Though not unique. See BSA, Remington, Marlin, Walther, USRAC/Winchester... Maybe Diana too these days. All makes that are a long way from what they once were.

    Not a lot wrong with webley / hatsan. Theyre both pretty decent value.

    Got an original 'Brummy Xocet' which is a beastie when compared to the new 'Hatsan' offerings... :up:

    I still just don't understand why people keep saying the hatsan made guns are not a patch on the British made ones.

    I think there are a few pairs of those rose tinted specks going around my vulcan had weld sticks sticking out of the trigger welds and 2 inch length of swarf inside it never seen that sort of thing in a hatsan built one..

    Possibly i have had bad webley british ones and only good hatsan built ones.

    They do polish the barrel a bit more before blueing on the webleys and stick v them in nicer stocks but charge allot more than the hatsan equivalent.

    I still shoot around the barns every week with my xocet.22 it's been fully reworked and it's a pleasure to shoot, I only use it around the farm building for rats but it works for me, I've had the gun so many years now I can't remember how long I've owned it must be over 30 years now.

    Nah, no rose tinted specs here, the 'Brummy' stuff is far superior in fit and finish, the blueing is richer, the machinework is to a higher standard, the cocking cycle is smoother/quieter, the firing cycle is sharper/cleaner and quieter without any twangyness and the accuracy is far superior, one thing I will say though is that my experience is based on the last few years of 'Webley and Scott' so dunno much about the earlier stuff...

    I don't think it's that old, they were one of the last of the 'Brummy' built rifles which came out around about the Y2K mark, Webley & Scott ceased to exist somewhere around 2003/4 possibly even 2005 if my memory serves me correct, the 'Exocet' along with one or two others (Longbow/Stingray) was rumoured to have been influenced 'internally' by 'Venom' who had links with 'Webley' at the time...
