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.

Webley Nemesis

    Hello

    I keep looking at the Webley Nemesis & wondering if a single stoke pneumatic might be a good idea or not. I have a few older Webley pistols & my beloved new BSA 240 Magnum (I'm still in love with that :D) but wondered if one of these might make a nice addition to the fold in the future.

    Are they any good? Or are they just old, weedy performance wise & not worth bothering with? Is the lack of recoil dull ? (I've never fired anything but a springer). Also, are they reliable & what roughly do they sell for ?

    Your input would be very welcome ;)

    Cheers

    Dave

    I had one and loved it. I'm not a big pistol shooter but I still hanker after another Nemesis in .22.

    I like mine.

    They perform the the same as any similar SSP: high 300s to low 400s fps with light pellets in .177" and still OK in .22" (so enough for 10M target shooting), no recoil, decent trigger, easy to shoot well, fairly compact and - if it matters to you - looks and feels more like a "real gun" than most springers or single-shot CO2s.

    Specific good points: metal externals feel better than the polymer of HW40s, Gamos, etc. A proper Webley, so will hold its value.

    Less good: some people find the grip a bit "blocky" (I don't have an issue with it). Rear sight blade (plastic) is easy to break if you put pressure on it while cocking (answer: use proper technique; if that fails, replacements are available).

    That's cool, thanks to you both for that. To be honest I hadn't realised there was any metal on the outside of one I assumed they were just all plastic so that's really good to know. I'd looked at an HW40 in a shop but wasn't overly keen on it somehow. I do like the "real pistol" looks of the Nemesis so that adds to the appeal too (& I also do tend to like Webley pistols).

    Cheers
    Dave :)

    I love my nemesis! Absolutely superb accuracy, not pellet fussy either and even shoots cheap pellets surprisingly well. The low power is almost irrelevant as it's still smacking 30 yard tin cans.

    I have a brace, .177 and .22 both of them nice to shoot, no recoil (no power but that's ok). Both are really good back garden plinking guns. I also have a pair of BSA Scorpions, loads more power fairly accurate and then my much loved never to be parted with my BSA Magnum 240, when you get to know the 240 they make a good power pistol, quite a bit of recoil but as said with practice it's the gun to have.

    Why is it illegal? mine are all black, not classed as a re-enactment gun and not really a true copy of anything. I don't understand. We are talking about the same gun are we Webbly Nemesis year 1990/2005 ish[​IMG]

    When I initially read this I thought "dafuq you on about", but now you mention it I vaguely recall them doing some in some silly lairy colours - don't think Orange was the only one. I wouldn't paint it as you'll kill the value and perhaps some Webley collector might pay a premium for it as I doubt many were sold ;)

    I must admit I did hear something but the only colours I have ever come across is all black or the top half of the lower receiver being silver and that was painted not polish! Please post a photo because I honestly don't think anyone has actually seen one in orange, they like myself might have heard something but it that's different to actually seeing it

    I have a black / silver example and the lower isn't painted (unlike the black one which is powder-coated). I'm not sure what the finish is though; I initially thought some sort of plating / anodising, however it's oxidised at the base of the pistol grip so perhaps it is polished..? Will have to give it a going over with some Autosol next time I have it out :)

    Thanks - not seen one of those in a long time! Also note the powder-coated trigger blade which is different to that on the more traditionally-finished guns (where it's left in the white)..

    I was told by the chap in the gun shop when I bought it that it was illegal to paint it , I already had a black one in .22 and wanted a black one in .177 but he only had an orange one left so I bought that aswell .

    As above, he was getting confused about the law on air soft and therefore talking nonsense.

    Also as above, the colourful Nemesis pistols are rare and Webley collectors like them. If you don’t like it, it would sell easily.

    Personally, I am a bit of a Webley enthusiast, and I think it looks awful!
