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.

    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.'

  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.

    I think I got lucky...straight out of the box my HW110 has been perfect..no issues what so ever.
    However buying with you local dealer meget cost a bit more than online... but having the dealer set it up for you..evt. chronograph checked, cleaned and given the once over...would be reassuring.
    ..and should there be any problems it's straight back to the local shop..

    Thank you, mate. So were all the rifles you got from Solware brand new and boxed? Did you go to their physical store, though?

    Haven't used either SGC or Solware as they are a long way from me if I ever needed to take a rifle back, whereas Pellpax is local and AGC within just over an hour's drive. I know people who have bought from the former two and rate both highly.

    There's no large ones near me. Only a few small ones in the closest town.

    Maybe I should try them, I don't know

    No idea how good they are.
    I don't think there are many who do home delivery.

    Yep. That's one of the stores I've been eyeing intently over the last few days, trying to work out if it's good and trusted etc.

    I used to drop in whenever I was up there for work. Somewhat masochistic as I always knew they’d have something I liked too much and ended up coming home with!!

    Try the small shop, they might be able to sort you out and if you are unlucky and have any problems then it's easier to get it sorted out

    What's wrong with asking this question in your local shop(s)?

    if you're (rightly) picky about quality insisting on buying an unseen, unopened gun remotely isn't going to stack to odds of sidestepping a sh*tter in your favour, and compound the hassle / cost / wait if you do get saddled with a wrong 'un.

    Best I can suggest is to order locally and ask them to leave the box sealed until you collect.

    South Yorkshire Airguns must be pretty close to you and could be worth a visit if they have the rifle you want. My brother has used them in the past before he moved and always had good service from them, plus IIRC they are happy to price match. See https://www.southyorkshireairguns.co.uk/

    All RFD do not carry out a chronograph test. My local RFD does not, and does not test all secondhand air weapons sold.
    Rather if you ask for a test, do so reluctantly, commenting about a “fixation” with power output.

    You may comment that this is unacceptable bordering on illegal. I agree however it is what it is sadly.

    Just up the road from you in Barnsley is Ron Daley Air Guns.
    https://www.rondaleyairguns.co.uk/

    I bought an s400 from them last year and their customer service was excellent. Sure they would oblige with an unopened pack if you let them know that's what you particularly wanted.
    Good luck with your new rifle!
