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.

  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.

    To clear this text box, click on the 'X' in the top right-hand corner.

    Price reduced to £80
    I have for sale my Webley Junior which I understand is pre-WW2* as it has no barrel knurling. It is smooth bore which I believe all Juniors were.
    It is in pretty good condition apart from some slight pitting and rust marks to the black finish.
    It cocks easily, and the seal is good, and it takes almost any pellet you try although I use Gecos mainly as it has been in use for the last year or so in the UBC's V&O and Budget Springer competitions, in which it has been a fun pistol to use and at 6yds proved pretty accurate ( see example target below).
    The bakelite grips are in excellent condition apart from a few minor scratches at the bottom of the one for the LH side.
    It has the stamp 401 on the face plate which may be a batch number.
    I would like £95 for this pistol to include Signed For RM delivery.
    It can only be sold to those persons over 18 and not banned from owning an air pistol.
    Jim
    * I'm now informed it is post WW2 but pre 1957

    Approved. Good luck with the sale. :)

    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:

    Please state 'Sold' in the thread once your item/s sell, we will then move the thread to the Sales Graveyard.

    Thank you.

    Thanks for that Radlad :up:
    Better knowing the date of manufacture more accurately. Did the knurling start in '57 or is there some other significance to that year?
    All best

    Fixed sights, slant grip, batch numbered (no serial number) and Birmingham 4 address = post war pre 1957 ish. Impossible to tie a date any better than that. Knurling not applicable, that only applies to the slant grip Mk1 models, not the Juniors.

    There is nothing 'Probable' about it . The Junior is post WW2 and evidently has not borne it's years well

    Where did the 'Probable' come from?

    In answer to Bindweed's questions about the pistol:
    I had said "probably post war" but edited the post when it was made clear it was definitely post war and pre '57
    I think Radlad felt the rust spots etc were worse than he would expect a pistol of that age ie 60-70 years old. I think the price requested reflects the condition, which is pretty good and it cocks and fires well.
    Thank you for asking about it :up:

    Sorry, I have only just reduced the price to£85 inc delivery so I'd rather wait and see how it goes.
    I will take £80 for it inc delivery though.
