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.

  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.

    To clear this text box, click on the 'X' in the top right-hand corner.

    Barrels have to be RFD'd as well, assuming they are sent from within the UK. It's ridiculous; you can have one posted from overseas, just not from here. Madness.

    OP, it's the Violent Crime Reduction Act you have to thank for this.

    Put a post up here for someone close to where you want to buy it from to drop in and buy it for you and then post it to you?

    Nope! It's the idiot know nowt politicians that strung it together you have to thank for it. It's about the same for a good chunk of firearms legislation in this country. Still at least you can have a silencer / moderator, in the States it's my understanding that they are pretty much illegal?

    The firearms legislation in this country really does need a decent overhaul, but not by people who's heads are full of political dogma, or full of ways of turning a political advantage. It should not be done by people who's heads are full of fear and paranoia. It should be done by people that have a good working knowledge of firearms, does anyone see that ever happening???

    This is true, there is no mention of silencers. When i phoned a company up to see if they had a Hogan in stock they told me they can't post as the silencer is an extension of the barrel so therefore comes under the same laws.

    Hang on though Ken, it aint though is it, the projectile doesn't even contact the inside of the moderator, if it does you get **** groupings and huge moaning about clipping and such? Sounds like some no nowt arse has simply stamped his own interpretation of the law on the matter.

    I think we are lucky to have what we still have guys, the government could of brought in a load more draconian rules, and still might.

    We have had the ball, lets hope we do not get the chains.

    but don't worry, you can still buy "legal" (lethal) highs through the post as well as a host of other societal ruinous products

    just another example of the sad mess our once proud country is becoming.

    Sad times guys.

    Only if a barrel is brand new from a dealer, 2nd hand can be sent direct. So if you need a barrel you get a friend to buy it from the RFD and then post it to you, totally legal.

    Hi guys
    (i have no idea why it says warning next to the thread)
    I do find this a stupid law since you must already have a gun to warrant needing the moderator, youd have though a simple proof of age etc would be ok to have this sent to you. I have set my mind on a weihrauch moderator but would be interested in seeing a mattys one.

    Yes, that's what I meant but didn't say very well! An RFD cannot post you a barrel but as you say, a mate can. Lunacy...

    It was fantastic and only changed it as i do like a bit of brass bling so fitted a brass adaptor to match the rest of the brass on mine :)
    Have a look through my albums there is bound to be a pic of my s410 with the mattw on it :)
