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.

    Hi all
    For the people who haven't seen one of these it is last of the tin grip juniors . This is the anniversary 1790 - 1940 the 150 years of webley. The box is not in the best condition but it is still nice to have the original box to the gun. The gun is also stamped with the Birmingham 4 that you normally see on the post war guns.

    Hi
    No its the original finish. The box has suffered but I don't think the gun has ever been shot. Even the breach seal is perfect

    That's a very nice pistol indeed. I don't think I have ever seen one with such a high serial number or the Birmingham 4 markings. I thought the production of this model finished in 1938 or 1839 so that sticker on the box is extremely interesting as well.

    I wonder whether that particular model is even rarer than the spring clip type?

    The shortened barrel and markings including Birmingham 4 are correct for a Junior in the J30*** range. I know of several and my own example also has a gloss black finish, which I've never been entirely convinced is original. The highest Junior serial numbers known to me are in the J34*** range but the weird thing is none are known between the mid J30***s and J34***.

    Webley released a number of 'Anniversary' models to celebrate their 150th Anniversary in 1940 and marked the boxes by adding a sticker. I also have a boxed Mark 1 with such a sticker and have yet to find a boxed Senior with the sticker.

    Kind regards,

    John Milewski
