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.

    Well I went and done it........finally :D

    I've been after a donor Dan Wesson 715-6" in silver to do an inner barrel swap with my steel grey pellet DW715-6", I mentioned in my DW715 LTO review that it was one of my niggles about the DW715 was the 'incorrect' colour finish on the 6" pellet version.

    https://www.airgunforum.co.uk/community/index.php?threads/dan-wesson-715-revolver-review.284641/

    So I managed to get one cheap from a guy called Tom on the GunTrader website, it arrived today and I set about swapping the inner barrel, power valve and fore sight over....

    Oh, yes....I maybe too damn OCD but look at this.......:)

    I am a very happy little chappie at the moment....:D

    Don't you just love it when a plan comes together ? This is how they should of been in the first place, all silver just like the real steel Dan Wesson 715s.


    Psst....There's a steel grey, smoothbore DW715-6" for sale in the Sales section, it's a good price, it's even got pellet & bb cartridges and a speedloader with it, just take a look ;)

    Your too late, it's sold..........:facepalm:

    If you were truly OCD you'd be calling it CDO!

    Nice trio of 715s. I have the 2.5" version. A solidly built bit of kit. Best replica revolvers around in my opinion.

    Nice set @Headhunter :up:
    I really like the 4" version but do you agree it would be better without the tactical rail?

    I really like the size of a 4" revolver and have considered getting a 4" 715 to go with my 6" model, but that rail really puts me off. :(
    If I could get my hands on a glossy 4" barrel for my 586, it might just scratch that itch.

    Maybe... :rolleyes:

    It's surprising how many people think the rail ruins the 4" - including me.

    Gorgeous set. I can see myself picking up some more of these revolvers in time, I love how they shoot and being able to speed load them. Your photography really sets them off too!

    I know, I know, but I am not good with a spray can, plus I would always know that it wouldn't be "proper"...

    Pedantic, OCD, picky-bu99er; they all probably apply to me!

    @Wild Bill - maybe it doesn't ruin it but I would of preferred it not to be there (my OCD pedantry kicking in, again)

    @garryt - One good side effect of having it is the extra 'heft' to it, perfect for whacking air softers over the 'ead with who say bad things about the glorious DW715 revolver ;):D

    I'm getting the sudden urge to pistol whip somebody with an 8" DW (1st gen) revolver, just looking for someone really deserving......oh, look ! I've found somebody..... :p:D

    (first you start on the DW715, then it's the DW first gen, where's it all gonna end Garry? :facepalm: :D)
