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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.

    There seem to be new bullpups popping up like mushrooms, and you have guns like the Leishy which would fit through a letterbox sideways. As an antidote to that, I started idly wondering today what the longest rifle I own is. My S400 at 1113mm from buttplate to moderator tip won the prize.

    What's your longest?

    My Pro Sport is, I think 1170mm long, I did have a mod on it at one point, the mod being quite a long (Matty) one, so this made the PS very, very, very long indeed!
    Close 2nd is my HW95 which I think is 1150mm long.... :)

    Actually in one piece. My Diana K98. It's a broomstick.
    In parts scattered around the country, my mk1 80. It's the iron sighted long barrel and a 6" Vmach race brake will be crowning it. She's named 'Dora' after one of the nazi's railway superguns.
    Then in the post from Gulo is a proper 22" 35E winging it's way to me. Not sure yet if the name will be Gustav (the sister gun of Dora) or 'Charlie the b*****d'. 10 Hufflepuff house point for anyone that's knows where I appropriated that nickname from!
    I love long barrelled springers. No noncy carbine malarkey!

    Full length 1980s HW77 custom with a 4-5 inch suppressor.

    1980s Diana 52 rifle with a 4 (ish) inch suppressor.

    As an old git, I don’t really get those millimetre things, but I reckon they are both in the 47-49” range. 77 the longest.

    Someone on here will have an older 22” barrel HW35E with a suppressor. Which can get up to as much as 52”. Which is apparently 1320mm.

    You're gonna love it- shes a lovely young thing, loves attention being lavished on her, and if you rub her right she will do anything you ask her to :)

    as my lovely little thing is now not mine ( :( ) Its got to be the Diana 56th. Huuuuge!!

    Edit- just realized I've got a K98 as well, so that might actually be longer. First gun I ever had that I had to look on Utube to find out how the sling fitted:laff:

    I only own two rifles, and the longer of the two is my XT501, which is 1,024mm (40-5/16") from muzzle to toe of butt plate.

    Of course, if we change your question to refer to our longest weapon, then that's a totally different matter. :D
