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 Stingray 11 xs and sabre 3-9x42 scope

    Ok this is my first attempt at writing a review so i apologise if it's not up to much.
    I've had the webley stingray 11 xs for a week now and i've really been enjoying it it's a turkish model and comes with a turkish walnut stock the stock is well made an beautifully finished and is a true ambidexturous model as a left hander it feels perfect. The blueing is really nice and cosmetically the rifle looks fantastic the chequering is flawless and feels really nice. the breech is really tight and it takes a heavy smack to break the barrel i'm confident that it will remain tight for many years and can't see any barrel alignment issues in the future. Now onto the shooting the action is very quiet and the silencer is excellent this is the most quiet spring gun i've ever heard and i've owned most wiehrauch's and webleys and had a lot of them tuned and have never come accross one as quiet as this. At 25 yards i can get half inch groups and one inch groups out to 35 yards. So far i can find no fault with this gun it's a well balanced reliable gun at a very reasonable price i can see it taking over as my number one.

    Now onto the scope the sabre optics scope is chinese made but don't let that put you off the rrp is £55 and they can be picked up cheaper for the money you get the 3-9x42 scope (though it's marketed as a 3-9x40 it's actually a 42mil lens ) a really solid 1 piece steel mount flip up lens covers and a full size cleaning cloth. The scope has a milldot reticule and is provides a very clear picture the windage and elevation turrets are easy to adjust offering a click that is easy to here and easy to feel the scope was very quick and easy to zero and i'm very impressed with it. I would say to anyone looking for a new scope the sabre scopes are excellent value for money and offer a genuine bargain i would happily rate mine alongside the lower end ags, simmons, hawke, and nikko sterlings in fact i believe nikko have something to do with the sabre scopes.

    So all together both gun and scope have been very impressive niether was my first choice i was going to get a weihrauch hw95k with a hawke 3-12x44 but i was given the webley/sabre combo as a birthday present and i'm really happy with it :up:

    The stocks seem to be a bit of a lottery there supposed to be turkish walnut but it seems that they just use whats available at the time I think my mrs paid £265 including the scope and a padded gunslip

    On cocking there is a click i'd give it 7 out of 10 on firing the gun there is a twang but not the usual twang that carries over the fields just a slght twang in your ear not enough to cause a disturbance whilst huntin i'd give it a 9 out of 10

    I was just chatting to a couple of guys on the webley chat room both had singrays one had a walnut stock and one had beech so it does seem to be a random lottery as to which wood you get

    Must be something to beat a Weihrauch, maybe the new Webleys aren't so bad after all, still wouldn't buy one myself though, I take it you'll be using the .22 one and selling the .177 once it arrives seeing as you're a .22 fan?
