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.

Advice Would I Be Dumb To Pass This Up? (aa Prosport)

    So i've seen an Air Arms ProSport for sale, second hand, for just under £300. Considering that i'm after an underlever, would I be daft to pass that up?

    From what I can see, there's just a few marks on it.

    Would it be a smart move to make compared to a secondhand TBT tuned TX200 that also comes with a scope and silencer for about £80 more?

    If its in good condition that that seems a great price. What could make a difference on both is if they are beech or walnut

    Ask the seller for some more HD pics to try your best to check that up... IMO, the PS won't be shot better than the other TBT tuned TX200, but if the condition is good, I will buy the Pro Sport as it's fancier... However, if the appearance of the PS is not good enough, it doesn't worth the money... And I will take that TX200...

    And, it's not that difficult to refinish the stock to make it better... So, it's up to you again finally...

    They both sound like pretty good buys, tbh. Especially the PS.

    Yeah, that's what I was wondering myself. Apparently it's mechanically sound, just some marks.

    I paid around the same for my Pro Sport on here a few weeks ago. I thought it was a bit of a bargain for a top end springer.

    Its seen a lot of use but has been well loved.

    can we assume when you say "seen" you mean actually seen it, ?? or is this an add from some dodgy online gun marketplace full of dreamers and scammers?

    just asking.

    trade seller probably better than a possible scammer, [hopefully]. I read on here one recently who shelled out hard earned cash for a bunch of bullshine and no gun or refund over a year on,,,, but you see the need to be vigilant. talk to the dealer in person, ask as many questions as you want answers for, and if you don't get them, or feel they are being ignored,, walk away.
    remember "if something appears to be, too good to be true,,,,, it probably is".
    good luck and I hope it works out to your liking.

    The ProSport has got some marks on the metalwork but other than that is apparently fine. I've asked for some more pictures anyways

    Assuming that both work as they should, and the shop will guarantee them, have a heft and see which you prefer. Theres a world of difference between them, in terms of weight and balance, and thats going to be important that which is more liked
