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.

    Currently shooting Mk3 in .22 at 15yds and with full adjustments of rear sight its still shooting about 2 inch high so I have the following questions.

    Typically what will be the distance at which the .22 trajectory will start dropping (yes I know they will all be different per gun depending on pellet etc. just a rough estimate)

    Currently what should I do with regard to adjusting my aim I’m currently sighting with the top of the front post level with the top of the V in the rear sight, should I continue with this and lower my aim or change where I’m sighting the front post in the V.

    Can I or has anybody ever altered the rear sight insert to give more adjustment.

    Thanks in advance, be gentle.

    Hi, 15 yards is a good pinking range for a mk3 so should be spot on, iv had a few of these in the past and had a few problems with em,try shooting a pellet into some folded rags then see if there's a damaged side to the pellet, if so it's the tap misaligned with the barrel.

    It will kick the pellet off in the same place every time so it will groupe but not where you want it....same sort of thing happens if you've got damage to the Crown.

    Just place the tip of the front sight in the bottom of the notch in the rear sight. If this isn`t enough you will need a taller front sight.

    webley wouldnt have built a gun that you couldnt sight in,if rear sight isnt damaged and its all the way down with no further adjustment then its possible that the front sight isnt correct.
    if its a simple 'pin' post it may have been damaged/filed in the past
    you need to lengthen the post slightly,in the past ive used heat shrink.slip it over the post and heat witha lighter,the top will shrink to the same size as the post.lat way youve got something to work with,youll prob only need to lengthen the post 1mm .

    Ok will think about that, it might be webley blasphemy but was looking around for fibre optic sight rod to put on top of the front sight once I’ve tried some different pellets.
