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.

    Hi I'm absolutely brand new to the sport and never had a riffle before. Had a few goes of my mates webley when I was a teenager some years ago, however I'm looking to purchase a break barrel and have a budget of around £120 to start. Obviously (as with everyone) I'd like to get the best value for money. I've seen the brand SMK which seem to do lots of various models quite cheap, however are they exactly that and should I stay away??

    To be honest any recommendations on makes and models would be fantastic ;)
    Cheers
    Lee

    FOr that price, you could get a brand new Scoped Remington Express. They seem rather canny for the price

    I have a Hatsan 60s and had it carbined and it is really accurate with jsb exacts, but you want to join some air rifle sale sites on fb there some really good buys secondhand I bought a Diana 52 for a little more than you got and that is a gun built to last a lifetime

    you dont have to look very far or long to find a good used hw35 or similar for your budget,a 120 quid new gun,whatever the make will lose its attraction quite quickly,

    Great thanks all! Love the remington to be quite honest as I would like a new one to start out and that looks to be a good solid gun on youtube reviews.

    Cheers

    I second everyone who's said Remington my first ever rifle was a break barrel Remington Genesis and I still have it today after 4 years and it still shoots like the first day bar losing some power but thats to be expected with a springer just needs a new spring. For the price you get an accurate good looking light weight rifle - all you need at first really

    To be honest I'm favoring the Remington Express at the moment, however I did come across the Stoeger X20 Suppressor which is also taking my fancy. What does everyone reckon? They are both good looking rifles in my eyes.

    Honestly go for the Remington. The trigger is far better than the Stoeger.

    I'm not knocking the Stoeger, i had one myself and they are a fantastic rifle if worked on, but if you want a good setup from the moment you purchase, the Remington is your winner
