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.

    I have been offered a Webley Vulcan today.
    At the time I didn’t pay it much attention as the HW95 was calling my name from the other side of the shop.
    Are they worth bothering with for 25 to 45 yard knock downs and will it group at 25 yard paper punching?
    What sort of money should I be expecting to pay?
    I’m happy to strip and rebuild if the results justify the effort.
    I did not ask any of the right questions re age or calibre. It was quite a dark wood, with a white band around the base of the pistol grip and butt pad. The pistol grip also had a cup under it. It had quite a nice period scope and mounts, front and back sights and a moderator.
    I fancy a winter project.

    The Mk1 certainly didn't have white spacers, or any pistol grip cap Andrew. The Mk2 had both and I'm sure the Mk3 also. The trigger on all Vulcans is a bit agricultural but can be improved....part of the winter project ;)

    As guns go I love them. If you look on Gunstar/Gun Trader etc you'll get an idea of asking prices. Some figures I see are quite high really...playing on nostalgia perhaps compared to how good the gun actually is. Easy to work on though and the ones I've had, while in no way reminding me of a TX, have all been perfectly capable and great fun to use.

    I think you can give up on the cloud-cuckoo £300 dealers :p. Getting it for under £100 would be quite an unlikely steal though with all it's extras....the front and back sights on their own would cost you about £75 to buy :confused:. I'm guessing it's going to be the KS version of the Vulcan because none of the standard models could have a foresight AND a moderator unless they were separate and one or the other came as an unfitted extra. If you can get it cheap you should grab it.

    I don’t think anyone actually pays those top end prices? I used the bottom end ones and my ex wife’s solicitors used to top end ones when she was trying to divorce me.;)

    Vukcan KS carbine does tend to command better prices than the MK1 & 2. They have the updated faux 2 stage trigger and muzzle fixture into which you can screw a moderator. A pristine MK3 can command £250 to £300 but the word there is "pristine".

    I would never pay more than £150 to £200 for a pristine Vulcan MK1 or MK2 & £250 for a MK3.

    Average condition Vulcans, pay no more than £100 to £120. I have noticed an upward trend in Vulcan & Tracker prices to the point where £250 is the norm on sites like Guntrader etc, to expensive in my humble opinion.

    Main thing to be aware of with the 22 Vulcan is they are true .22 (5.6mm not 5.5) and can be pellet fussy.
    I get good results at 25m with superdomes & 5.53 H&N FTT.

    The trigger can be improved with careful polishing & lighter trigger spring.
    It will never be TX200 accurate but i can get 5p sized groups at 25m using artillery hold.
