Time wasters and For Sale items

Items for sale. (This site take no responsibility for deals made in these forums.)

Moderators: Chomley-Warner, Mattywheels

Forum rules
All sales placed here are private and this forum takes no responsibility for the conduct of these sales . Please make sure trade sales are clearly marked as such, if you want to discuss having a trade sales area please contact the forum admin by PM.

Only WW2 related items be posted for sale on this forum. Look a-like items are fine, but not guns (etc) that are clearly not WW2 at all. There are other forums for selling modern airsoft items, lets just keep this one to stuff appropriate to WW2, please.

Also, if you're not intending to make an offer, have a query or buy an item then please don't post. We don't want for sale threads to go off topic or have loads of "ooo I like that, but can't afford it" posts on them.

When the sale is complete can you please edit the title to include the word SOLD and then lock the thread to show it as complete. Do not delete or edit the thread as it is a valuable guide to going market costs for your fellow forum users.

Bumping After 21 days your post will automatically be given a 'bump' feature - please do not make 'bump' posts prior to this - it's a bit like pushing in the queue!

Whilst we have decided not to stop the advertising of Realistic Imitation Firearms (RIFs) on this forum, please note that as from 1st October 2007 the Violent Crimes Reduction Act severely restricts who and what you can sell to other people. It is the seller's responsibility to ensure that sales complies with current legislation. Under 18's cannot buy or be sold an airsoft gun. Anyone under the age of 18 attempting to buy a RIF will be banned from the forum.

British law covers age restriction on the sale of knives in the Criminal Justice Act 1998:
"It is an offence for any person to sell to a person under the age of 18 any knife, knife blade, razor blade, axe or any other article which has a blade or is sharply pointed and which is made or adapted for causing injury to the person."

The WW2 forum offers this free advertising as a service to forum users. We take no part in either vetting sellers or purchasers but ask that sellers show respect for the law and point out that abuse of the dispensation granted to airsofters by the Home Secretary could be adversely affected by thoughtless or reckless sales activity.

Time wasters and For Sale items

Postby Chomley-Warner » Fri Sep 28, 2012 9:47 am

It has come to my notice of the past few months that there seems to be an increasing prevalence of forum members indicating they are interested in buying an item resulting in a string of correspondence only for the purchaser to back out at the last moment.

This has to stop NOW. This isn't a micky mouse kiddy airsofter forum - it is run and moderated by committed WW2 airsofters who uphold high standards of fair play both in the battlefield and on the forum.

Quite why a few chaps piss sellers about I have no idea - are they fantasists or juveniles or they get some kick out of it or are just hopelessly unrealistic about their level of disposable income? Whatever, this is a warning to potential perpetrators. Play fair or your forum rights will be restricted or worse.

To sellers of items: if you have a problem please contact me by PM (do NOT post on open forum) and give fulsome details about your grievance and I'll make a judgement. No petty grumbles or wet whingyness please - fairness works both ways.


(By the way, forum users attempting to buy RIFs when they knowingly have no defence will be met with a permanent forum ban.)
