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.

  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.

    Took delivery today of this very nice pistol. Webley Scott MKV1 pellet Nickel Exhibition model. I bought it from a long standing member/collector of the BBS. Boxed in as new condition and previously unfired until today by me.
    This is all that reviews have made out it out to be, a solid well engineered and extremely good replica. I’ve shot 60 JSB Exact RS Diablo through it and all my initial impressions are positive apart from two. This is a very well made pistol, accurate over 11 yards and even after 60 pellets I feel there is plenty of co2 left in the capsule. I love the heft, the loading mechanism, the snap of closing, and the trigger in both single and double is well weighted. My two criticisms are that the rear sight is not moveable and the plastic grips are thin and ‘tinney’ Will need to source some wood ones. Next on the list for it will be some more shells and a left handed cross draw holster.

    I must admit to being quite jealous, I've been after one of these for a while - especially the 'Exhibition' finish, just not willing to pay the 'over the top' new price for one.

    Lucky swine :)

    NB. I have been reliably informed that the ASG Schofield shells also fit the Webley MKVI, haven't tried it myself, but it might be of interest to you if your looking for extra shells.

    The Schofield Do ( Umarex Colt SAA DON'T) but by measurement, the ASG shells are a teensy weency bit shorter. I bought a bb Webley a couple of years ago and fitted a rifled barrel to it (and to the Schofield) , now use either lead bb or pellet in either gun by swapping shells over. looking at making a few shells for myself but think I'll go the fabrication route by sweating some 1.5mm brass sheet to 3/8" brass round bar and turning the rim round. Not got the patience to make tooling for the turret assembly on my hobby lathe. Been looking at turning a Umarex Smith to .22 but I badly need a Chrono before I do that, JIC. Barrel replacement and magazine reaming is all it should take. Webley and Scofield are probably more suitable but will need different holes reaming in the shells. thinking about it, anyone got a 10" length of .20 barrel going cheap? Or a Crosman 38T maybe a little more expensive?

    Congrats on getting the Webley it's one of the most enjoyable look alike revolvers made.

    I bought one today from Donaldson’s in Bletchley for £159, the pellet version in Battlefield Finish. Second hand, but as-new in its original box. Lovely thing; beautifully engineered to match the original, and exactly the same weight. Recommended!

    I have been looking for the battlefield finish version everywhere. Glad to hear it's as good as it appears to be
