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.

    I love my HW95's and will not part with either. However, one rifle that does it all and does it all excellently is my TX200HC. All in the pansy cal ofcourse.

    It's ok, I will one day, she doesn't need to know how much.

    I'll give her the response I get when she has something seemingly new, "I've had it for ages" ;)

    Hatsan 900x breaker maybe? I'm a novice, and we only have two Springers so far. The 900x, and my son has a Meteor from the 1970's.
    The 900x is a cracking little thing though. Accurate and powerful.
    All the best

    Hi Walter is that the same as the synthetic 1000?

    I nearly bought one a while ago but the guy was on holiday so got a Remington Express in .22 which is great.

    No mate. Its wooden. When I first bought it....I was amazed at how accurate and powerful it was. We were very happy. But my wife mistakenly left it cocked for a few days, and it started making a grinding noise when I cocked it. Since then, I joined the forum to ask for help, and with that help and advice I successfully managed my first ever "home tune". The results were amazing. I'm still learning, but I now know that the 900x is a good bit of kit for sure. Easy to work on, and the accuracy and power is spot on. Our particular one seems to prefer .22 superdome, jsb Rs, and jsb exact. In that order. If you do maybe get one, and have it apart and scratch your head over how to get the trigger unit back in....? I'd love to tell you exactly how to do it with ease my friend. I hope this helps.
    All the best
    Walter

    If you like the older used stuff, there are scores of options. Webley Mk3, Osprey, Tracker, Viscount, Vulcan, Xocet. BSA Airsporter, Mercury, Supersport. Various HWs (35, 80 etc) and Dianas (eg the 35 or 280). And lots more.

    Basically, old springers at reasonable prices are better than new ones at similar prices.

    Just depends on what you like/want/need.

    With that budget I'd be looking at a used Diana 280 or Diana 31, 34
