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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  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.

    Went to see them with the Olympus as the grub screw holding the silencer on had stripped the thread out of the naff adaptor (slip on to 1/2"). No problem, Adrian took it into the workshop and had it retapped and fitted with a new, larger diameter (therefor stronger) grub screw in about 5 minutes. Brilliant service, brilliant workmanship and what I didn't know, until I visited, was he also supplies optics at very reasonable prices. he has Nikon Prostaff, Monarch and Nikko Stirling range in stock,plus MTC too I think. I looked at the prices he is charging - cheaper than Uttings or anywhere else!:up: If you are looking for some work doing, or need a scope, it would be worth getting in touch, they are a small outfit and so have low overheads - so can pass on some of the savings.

    Well chuffed customer here! Oh he is also doing redesigned silencers, including small ones for springers, the usual HW size ones and larger ones for FAC up to 80 ft-lbs! I got a medium sized one and it is brilliant.

    2 min easy repair, id have done it my self, just requires a slightly larger tap and grub screw, or you could have tightend the larger grub screw into the hole as the adapters are only ally, it would have cut its thread on it own, still ya right about a & m being great

    Maybe not, but you need the tools! Some of us have talents in other directions. I have no shed, not workshop and virtually no tools other than to do maintenance on the bike. I have been tested and I am HID +ve (Have It Done). The proper course of action would be to have one of his steel, blued, adaptors instead of the alloy rubbish, then the thread wouldn't have stripped in the first place.

    The good news is the rifle is shooting 9mm groups from 30 yards again.:D
