      VCR Bill

      Since the introduction of the "latest" VCR bill on 1st October 2007, sales of AIRGUNS (including replicas) AND MAJOR COMPONENTS (barrels, cylinders etc.) by DEALERS is restricted to a face-to-face transaction.   Please ensure you are familiar with the changes brought about due to the VCR act, which may be viewed on the BASC website.   BASC and ACPO have produced a guide to the VCR act in PDF format, which avoids legalese and is very understandable. See HERE.   AirGunForum members must ensure their transactions conform with current legislation before posting.   An inter-dealer network to facilitate the continuation of mail order business is being established by Portland Jon. Details are HERE or direct to his website HERE.

      Editing your posts

      The forum's EDIT function has been changed. After making your post, you will have 30 minutes to review and edit it. After that, only Admin will be able to make edits.   Should a post NEED to be edited afterwards, email to admin@airgunforum.net the change details, the URL of the thread it applies to and if appropriate, the reason for the change. Don't forget to identify yourself and do use your registered email address to make contact. All this is necessary, as admin must be able to identify who you are and that it is your post that you wish to edit.   Admin. will make the edit if it appears necessary. Note, if you want to change something that could easily be achieved by adding a further post to the thread, you will be expected to do it.   Forum staff generally view new posts added to threads since their last visit. If a "for sale" item has been sold or a wanted item has been obtained, just add a post to the thread and it will usually be noted and the thread title will be edited appropriately. This saves members' time wading through posts that are effectively "dead".   DaveL

      Upgrade   01/16/2018

      Well it took me longer than expected and it was a bumpy road, but the forum is now upgraded to the latest version. The previous skin will no longer work with this new version, but I will check to see if there is a similar one for this version. Enjoy and if you encounter any problem just report it.

  1. Stainless Barrels

    4 tins isn’t a great deal to get it on song. What are the benefits of having a stainless barrel over a normal one,apart from not rusting
  2. GC2 Action .

    I think that proves what people have been saying regarding head sizes. It don’t make any difference it’s all about batches. A tin of 4.51’s were measured and some bigger than 4.53 were in the tin and not many 4.51’s
  3. Hot Pellet

    Welcome to the madhouse
  4. The Jacket and the Hat ?

    Thats why Ive always liked Sywell. You know where you are with a constant wind
  5. Scopes ?

    Ive seen BSAs still going for £300+ with sidewheel,pointer etc. Get a goodn and theyre hard to beat
  6. Scopes ?

    As you know Ive got a ZOS on my LGU. Is it up to the job? Not really. Its ok up to 45 yards but passed that and its a bit wishy washy. Dont get me wrong its not a bad scope for the money,I paid £80 for mine with mounts but the side wheel although the same as a T50 Falcon the locking screw is rubbish and cant grip the turret tight enough without it burring over. The turrets are the same as a T50 and have a nice positive click and always returns to zero no problems. Ive had it on my LGU for a couple of years now and Ive never had to re zero it,so recoil isnt a problem. The optics are pretty clear but has a mad reticle with loads of lines in it and no cross in the middle just sort of cup that you put the kill zone inside. If you can get one cheap and need a scope to start out with then its ok.
  7. Airgunforum, what future?

    Maybe a review section. Be it top notch FT/HFT equipment or budget starter rifles and pistols. Also any gear thats related to shooting.
