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.

    Can anyone remember a Webley air rifle that looked like a Winchester rifle? I can remember shooting one belonging to one of the writers for an airgun magazine.
    I cannot find a picture of the older man or his gun, Nigel Alan was the mag. editor at the time
    and they shot at the Avon Hawks FT Club.
    My eldest son asked me about it, he can remember some really cool stuff sometimes.

    Never new that existed I half thought you may be getting confused with a gun that was out in the 70's for kids a friend had one obviousley it was a toy but made of sturdy metal with as I remember a wood stock and was modelled on the winchester but when you cocked and fired it it made a hell of a bang and I do mean hellofa, not seen one since think I was probably about 8 at the time.

    Webley used the Ranger name a few times so it is possible there was another.
    I wonder if it was a Daisy Red Ryder? BB gun, or something similar, I remember
    a Diana with a removable pellet tube that you cocked by breaking it like a
    shot gun with an internal strap that cocked the piston.

    The 1961-71 Webley Ranger was an upmarket youth gun, a conventional break barrel roughly equivalent to a Diana 25. And I'm sure it was in significant part subcontracted to Milbro to make.

    Yeah just Googled it it could very well have been a Daisy Red Rider kind of gun it looks just like it all I remember was him cocking it and pulling the trigger and it made a REAL loud bang don't recall him actually loading it with anything just made a hell of a bang when fired.

    I think there was a nice boxed Daisy Red Rider (or very similar gun) for sale at the last Kempton Park Gun Fair, I was very tempted as it was in very nice condition, but I think it only shot BB's?

    Yes, I had a Webley Ranger when they first appeared. Really high quality underlever Winchester lookalike. Very accurate but due to the cylinder/piston dimensions having to be so small to fit in it wasnt high power at all. About 6 ft/lbs but sweet with it.:up:. The earlier Webley made Ranger was a break barrel junior rifle but of good quality.

    "The other forum" is just the spellchecker at work and the BT thing is a scam - ffs don't give them any personal details or money!

    THANKS for that zip ting !
    Really informative, Looks like they are both over 100 years old,


    The 21 is blued & in very good condition , & Shoots very well,

    The other ( On Looking ) is the 1000 shot, Tatty, Piston seal gone ( At a guess ) & cocks & fires alas without the BB Ha ha,

    I was very surprised at how much effort is required to cock them.
    All the best mate, Ged. STA70259.JPG
