      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.

      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.

  2. Scopes ?

    So what is your take on stainless barrels then Jon ??? HOLLY
  3. Stainless Barrels

    I have had two barley twist barrels and they were actually not as good as the LG110 barrels . i think you either have to be lucky with em or know how to make em work . which is why i have bought a CZ barrel . none of the CZ barrels i have used have given me any problems . i won't say they were more accurate than anything else . but they seem to take a more steady curve with the wind . so you can learn em more easily . but of course i could be wrong ??? HOLLY
  4. Scopes ?

    Rule number three is , never listen to croucher . except this one time ??? HOLLY
  5. Hot Pellet

    I was shooting a P800 X at springfield arc a while back and to be honest i think i prefered the older P70 ??? HOLLY PS Very pretty rifle though .
  6. Stainless Barrels

    Now that is what i like about you Dave ? Nothing . . Stan i cannot see any advantage to stainless barrels except that they look good . ??? HOLLY
  7. Airgunforum, what future?

    Hmmmm my dimpled cheeks on page three might get davinia going , but not much else Matt ??? HOLLY
  8. Stainless Barrels

    Once apon a time i was in love with Stainless barrels . i am now starting to think maybe not . out of the 6 steyrs i have had over the years . only two have been what i would call good . they were quite old ones , not barley twist by the way . it seems to me that the stainless barrels need to be run in for quite a long time before they shoot at there best . i have been told around 4 tins of pellets . which is one of the reasons i have bought a CZ barrel for mine when it gets back from mr cane ??? HOLLY
  9. Scopes ?

    Rule number on in FT . TRUST YOUR SCOPE . the MK one eye ball , can get tired . hung over , blurred and just plain confused . you paid a lot of money for that scope . learn it and use it . ??? HOLLY PS Rule number two is . Never Listen To Anybody Else's Ranges .
  10. Airgunforum, what future?

    Any chance of some page three pics at all matt ??? HOLLY
  11. GC2 Action .

    What a bitch of a day . loaded three rifles up and off we went . got stuck in the -covered in gore- field . grrrr . walked across with one rifle .the GC2 , filled it up and Hissing sid enter the room . -covered in gore- hell .. tried all the usual , noway hosay .oh well . one of the lads had just bought a secondhand FTP 900 . i have had a couple of shots through one . not bad but not exceptional . shot at 47 yards . only board out . booger me they all went through the same hole . and that was with a really awful hawk scope on top . with what looks like a lot of little hairs of my staffie floating about in it . it was easily as good as the tsar and the 9015 . although the trigger was not a patch on the shutz . when i got home i dropped out the filler valve and put in another . no good still leaking . so i had to put the old video type connector back in i replaced 20 years ago . so much for -covered in gore- progress ??? HOLLY
  12. GC2 Action .

    Well not good today , i think the Old GC2 has a slow leak . as it was empty when i went fill it today . my old anschutz has already conked out due to a leak . so tonight i stripped the shutz and had a look inside . changed what i hope is the offending O ring . cleaned every thing up that i could . will fill it tomorrow and see how it goes ??? HOLLY PS While i was at it a stripped every last thing that i could off it to try to lose some weight . in fact i think i lost well over a pound off it . probably fall apart now .
  13. Scopes ?

    What Jon Say's about visually ranging is true IF you practice it , back when i had a 6.5 to 20 . yes i did practice as i walked the dog . guess it pace it . but having paid slightly more than suffolk ( yeah right ) i now depend on that scope to do that for me . FT nowadays does not leave room for error ??? HOLLY
  14. Scopes ?

    Well he is a better man than me Matt . cos unless i am rock steady i cannot bracket ??? HOLLY
  15. Hot Pellet
