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.

    Does anyone here know if the new AGS Webley's are any good?

    Even better - does anyone actually own one as I'm desperate to find out.

    Just ordered a new Longbow in .22 and there are very mixed opinions about Webley - nobody can agree on whether they're good or not, and nobody knows where they're made now ...

    Thanks.

    Webley.

    Made in Turkey and assembled in Britain . Was there any particular reason you chose Webley or was it their name and reputation? There seems to be a lot of badge engineering going on generally now.What about a Chinese MG car?

    Just went for them because they're Webley.

    Excellent news - just had an offer from Blackpool Airguns and they're out of stock with the new Longbow's so they've offered me an origonal British one back from the days.

    It's been used as a display model but is in good condition ... so I'm told ... so I'm very pleased.

    I might add that additional reasons for choosing the Webley Longbow can be found at http://www.reviewcentre.com/reviews4793.html

    Happy shooting.

    Longbow

    That sounds a good buy. The Longbow was supposed to be really nice.

    I didn't like my xocet much.

    What was wrong with it?

    I don't think anyone likes them very much ... judging from the reviews I've seen they're very average.

    RE. exocet.

    My exocet had a very nasty recoil. After more than 2000 shots I couldn't use it because of teeth ache!

    Information.

    The Webley bit came from "What Airgun" buyers guide 2007. and the bit about Chinese MGs was on telly news a few days ago. Is that what you doubted? What point would there be in anyone making things like that up?

    Here's an extract from webley's site

    Tackle and Gun Interview with Jeff Cooper, Managing Director

    T&G: It is no secret that you have taken production of your airguns to Turkey. How’s that going?


    JC: Very well, actually. Turkey is extremely keen to learn off us, especially on the pre-charged side of things. Tony Hall and Paul Garrity have been working with them in the development of the Raider 10.
    We decided not to go down the China route, preferring to keep the manufacturing base as (broadly) European as we can. We are aiming to be as cost-effective as possible but still offer the quality that Webley is renowned for, using British understanding and design skills.

    Full article here http://www.webley.co.uk/news.asp :)

    Well that's my source. :p

    Nothing bothering me mate your the one who sounds rattled.
    Just one question where does it say made in Turkey assembled in England??
    It's common knowledge about Turkey just I have not heard that they ship parts back to England.
    Sounds like an expensive way to make a rifle.
    As far as I know ALL the spring guns come from Turkey.
    And the early Raider 10's that are being sold now are just old stock from before they went bust.
    So no rifles assembled in England.

    Webley.

    I really don't know why I'm bothering but Webley Ltd.say, the xocet, xocetXS and Longbow are back in the mechanical camp as is the Raider 10. These rifles are now being manufactured abroad (Turkey) but assembled in the UK.
    Do you need a holiday Murphy?
