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.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    Hi i im just looking about at what on offer in the range of rifles,
    At the moment i only own a Webley Tempist .22 pistol.
    Im looking to buy my first air rifle soon. But with Twin Girls on the way in a few months time money is a bit tight.
    In this months airgunner mag there is a review on a SMK rifle. Its one of there top end ones but the cost is under £200.
    What id like to know is what you guys think of this make?
    Do you think that they are a well made Gun?
    And do they give good service??
    Also is there any other makes of airgun that make a good gun for under two hundred??
    £200 is my very top end and id like a 12lb rifle if possible for this money.
    Or do any of you think that id be better off buying second hand??
    I would be most grateful for any help that i could get
    Thanks:up::)

    Thanks guys For the info.:up:
    I thnik i would perferr to buy a name brand. And i would not have even thourt about buying an smk as i had never heard of them and when i looked at there web site thay seem to sell allsorts. But the mag did give them a good review.
    But SMK do advertise in there mag so i gess that they would not like to upset a company that pays them money by givving a bad review to one of there prducts.:)

    Review Centre is good, probably one of the best places to get reviews on anything you're looking at :up:

    look at the weihrauch hw99s you should get one for £169 it's a great full power sporting rifle and will leave you lots of options for tuning and modifying in the future. You'll be getting a reliable brand name rifle that will last you a lifetime.

    Littlescoots SMK was alright, good for target shooting. We never took it out hunting, but his dad did and came back with rabbits so can't be that bad.

    Must of been over 8 years ago i had one if those SMK pump up rifles in .177 with the manual mag.
    Think it cost £59 or £69.
    That was pinpoint accurate out to 40yards when you pumped it up 15times. Many a rabbit fell to that.
    Then one day i thought i would pump it up 20times. Got to 18 and bent the folded steel pump lever!.
    Made up a solid steel one and decided that 15pumps was maximum!.
    My nephew still uses that same rifle today, never serviced it and it still is going strong, allthough he's not strong enough to give it more than 10 pumps.
    Mayby i got lucky when i got it, i dont know, but dont forget, if you get a rifle, you will need a scope as well.
