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.

    '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.'

  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.

    Hey guys,

    So along with the Skif A-3000 that I'm in them middle of selling on here I thought I'd ask about the old .22 Vulcan I've got in the attic.

    My parents bought it for me second hand about 14 years ago and I haven't used it for about 12 years, I fitted it with a scope as I used to attend a club when I was in my teens. Depending on the condition what would it go for? I will try to get some pics of the rifle and scope tonight and post them up.

    Cheers,
    Ben

    Sod it, just post some pictures mate, you will soon get some replys, as a few people have woken up to the fact, the Webley Vulcan isn't that bad of a rifle afterall.

    They're worth around £100 or so mate. Yours looks like one of the later models and looks to be in good nick.

    Good luck with the sale, they're cracking guns!

    kent,
    I gave sixty for my mk1 with bag scope pellets and oil but agree they are worth more
    100 to 120 as sales are slow at the moment they are good accurate solid guns
    mines about 35 years old now and still going strong I assume yours is .22 as most are
    the smaller cal is worth a bit more imo

    Yes, I'd say that was reasonable.

    I recently acquired a mint Vulcan and so far it's had a new mainspring and breech seal, an awesome drop-in tuning kit from Tinbum and I made it a piston sleeve to complete the tune-up. It's smooth as silk now and the tune-up increased the power from 8.7 ft/lbs to 10.7 ft/lbs!

    For the sake of £80, in my own personal opinion, it's worth keeping and using! ;):D

    Good luck though, whatever you decide to do with it!

    Atb

    Neil.
