    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.

    Oh what would you say is better between the 22 a 177 ? Obviously the 177 would be quicker and go further as it's light right ?

    Gotta say, I chose the Black Star. Not got big ham fists, but just fits me right. Quite like the laminate on the black 'un, looks pretty serious on it. :D

    Never tried it in .177, but I've heard it's a little harsher to shoot? Not sure how, as just a barrel change is required to swap calibres. Might be something to do with the air building behind the smaller pellet creating a bit more piston bounce? .22 is a riot, and gives a real thump to whatever you're pointing at!

    Was trying to get a barrel for mine in .177, but decided just to get a dedicated .177 pistol instead as I love how my '45 handles. Haven't tried it past 20m, but it really knocks things about at that range. Even managed a disposable lighter on my third shot! Wouldn't mind a shot of one in .177, but I'm really loving it in .22.

    I've got a silver star in .177 and it's great fun. I've not used one in .22 so not sure how they compare, but mine does have a good kick to it on full power. Makes it quite a challenge to shoot consistently but that's part of the reason I find it hard to put down.

    They do one in .20 or used to I think. Is it that simple to change over calibres?

    Call me PC incompetent, but I cannot find a single Moderator, Weaver attachment ( the dovetail is 13mm) or Red-dot sight worldwide for this pistol!!

    Any help appreciated

    As far as I know, it's just a case of undoing a couple of screws and swapping the barrels over. Think the pistol is geared to come in under the limit with whatever size tube you stick in it.

    I know that there was an official moderator produced for this, a certain German website had them for sale at one point. There have been custom jobbies made by a few folk, but most require tapping of the muzzle end of the pistol for an adaptor. From what I gather now they're somewhere between being as rare as hen's teeth and rocking horse poo. With regards to the Weaver; I've no idea. I fitted a 2x20 scope to mine on standard 9-13mm rings and just felt that it spoiled the feel of the pistol altogether.
