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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

  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.

  4. PLEASE READ
    You are breaking the forum rules if there is no comment on a sales or wanted thread by either the buyer or seller. 
    Or regarding to members manufacturing things stating something is going to be discussed and initiated through pm.
    I.e. 
    A buyer in manufactured section hi I’m interested in some work by you pm incoming.
    Or seller in a wanted add, hi I can do that for you pm incoming regarding it.
    Or a normal sale, hi I want to buy your item
    If a manufacturer gets asked privately about a sale they should say to the prospective buyer please comment on my thread to adhere to forum rules.

  6. 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 bought a Wildcat mk2 in April, I only had the chance to sight it in about 4 weeks ago....had the dreaded cv.
    However, the Edgun Layla won't stop niggling me. The only reason I bought the Wildcat (.22) instead was the lower price. Now I've put on a bipod, bought 2 extra magazines, fittings so they go on the pic. rail under the scope, plus getting the walnut stock, I probably could have had the Layla with its double sided cocking lever. Despite being right handed, I love being able to cock left while holding the pistol grip.
    So if anyone wants to swap? I may sell the 'cat on here and swallow the difference for a Layla.
    Any comments to sway me either way really welcome.

    :p

    I bought the Lelya first , there’s no way I’d shift it over the other two , however I’m
    Pretty smitten with the Wildcat & Kalibrgun too , they are all very different beasts though so making an actual comparison is a bit apples & oranges imo .

    If only the wildcat was as easy to adjust as the impact, in my opinion would be the best rifle I've ever owned (That could change soon).

    As nice as the lelya is would I have another (had 2) ......probably not
    Excellent quality and simple to work on but the cocking mech as trick as it is ..... is too clunky

    My Wildcat mk2 never ceases to amaze me, it’s the first gun I’ve owned where I don’t do it justice.

    As @Jimmypie says, they are different beasts. I had a bullpup as short as the Lelya and it didn’t suit me (helluva rifle though), I’d go wildcat every time

    I’ve got the .25 compact. It took a while to find the right one as the reviews all recommended the 25gr and it wasn’t that Great, I was holding onto a tin of the king heavies as I’d ordered them by mistake. I didn’t get on with the hades and thought I would give them a go and they are fantastic out to 100m. Very good in the wind as well.

    When you say, clunky, does it stick, sticky, or is the mechanism a bit loose fitting?

    it’s certainly a different feel , maybe Because it’s a straight pull it feels a lot heavier action than say a side lever , it’s certainly not a one finger cocking . robust is the best way I could describe it , other peoples views may differ though , I only have experience of mine .
