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 just wrote a really detailed reply but I'm not sure how much you know about airguns so I'll keep it simple.

    Spring guns - "springers" are standalone guns, you can fire them out of the box with no problems. The best are:

    - Air Arms TX200 OR TX200HC (carbine)
    - Air Arms Pro Sport - the best looking gun ever made!
    - Weirauch HW77, HW80, HW95 or HW97

    PCP guns need expensive charging equipment in order to work. They're more expensive to begin with and you should expect to spend an extra £150-£200 for the filling equipment - either a pump or divers bottle. These fill the air cylinder with compressed air. Look at:

    - Air Arms S410

    also look at the S200, if you like it you can save some money there, as they're much cheaper.

    Hope some of this helps ... if there's anything you don't understand please say so!

    The BSA Ultra is fine but they're close to £350 new so that's too much for a second hand one, the Air Arms S200 is better, and I think it's cheaper, these are £250-£300 new or less for second hand.

    I forgot to mention the Weihrauch HW100 - you'll get one second hand for £500 easily :up:

    i'll be getting a BSA T-10 soon and heard good reviews from them.

    little cheaper than the S410 and it should be at a simular level

    Springers:
    look at
    BSA and HW's i think Air Arms springers are out of your budget(+scope)

    PCP's
    look at Air Arms S400/S410
    BSA Scorpion/T-10

    you can get a stirup pump from JSR from around £100

    scopes you can pay whatever you like!

    Hi nige is this thread in relation to your wanted thread because if it is your looking for left handers or ambi stocked guns in which case the bsa mentioned will be right handed i won't offer my opnion as to which guns are best as i've allready offered to sell you one of mine and don't want to be seen as trying to push it. If it's for a different gun then forget what i've said if it is for the same thing then you should make people aware that your not looking for right handers also if it is a lefty you want then remember the cost will be higher and you will need to add on average between 20 and 30 quid per gun for the lefty option

    I've made do with right handers in the past as well but it's difficult to get the correct eye relief on the scope as the cheekpiece doesn't line up right if you go with a multishot pcp i would reccomend you go wth a proper lefty with a left handed bolt as with a right hander or an ambi you lose the benefits of a multishot as you can't cycle the bolt with the rifle mounted you have to take the rifle down to do it which creates a lot of movement when hunting and also makes the process much slower so you lose the benefits of the magazine
