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.

    Thank you.

  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.

    Where can I find cheaper air rifles like Meteors, Vulcans etc? I want to try and tune them before I buy and try something decent. Looked on ******* (mostly new trade ads) and freeads (not a lot doing there). Seems Gumtree mustn't allow air rifles so I am a bit stuck. Any suggestions?

    I did this with a BSA Supersport. Put a wanted ad on here, or thread saying what you're after. Thats how I found mine. You can also set a Google alert for certain phrases and Google will email you whenever the phrase is mentioned. Found my Superstar that way.

    i believe Gumtree are Ebay, and that's why you won't find guns on there.

    Protek.
    They have a good selection of secondhand air rifles, here's their website, check the various categories on the lefthand side. As a retailer prices will typically be 30% higher than you'd expect to pay in a private sale. Meteors vary from £50-100 privately, Protek have a selection from £70-180 for a boxed and complete Super Meteor, a Vulcan @ £134 etc

    Gun Star.
    Both private and trade sellers, prices are often quite high IMO, but well priced guns do turn up, and the search facility makes life a little easier. The website is understandably blocked here on the AGF to stop people using this forum to promote ads, just google the sites name as one word.

    B.A.R.
    Blackpool Air Rifles. Prices are often at the top of the market, but worth a look.

    As others have suggested, scour the forums.

    Arms Fairs:
    Birmingham Arms Fairs commercial event, airguns make up only a small proportion of what's there, but again classics like Meteors, Vulcans, Mercury, Airsporter etc can often be found.

    Melbourne Marksmen Airgun Collectors Fayre. The country's largest independent collectors fair, some of the best prices you'll find anywhere and a top day out too. You can find some photos of the recent event here, hopefully there'll be another later this year. Details will be posted in the Vintage Section when known.

    I was there earlier this year & there were plenty of cheap airguns that fitted the bill...your local gun shop is always worth a visit as they often have trade in's they want to of load cheaply...they made over 4,000,000 Meteors....so they are one of the easiest to find..:thumb:
