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.

  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.

    I've a XS78 that I had to buy a new barrel for, and it is need of recrowning. I've never tried to crown a barrel before, I've read info on it about using grinding compound and a brass round head screw - I've got the screw! What grade compound and has anyone got a small amount I could blag from them! I'm open to ideas/thoughts on the best way to recrown my little XS, was also thinking of creating a carbine?
    What do you guys think?
    Many thanks,

    Found this on another forum

    I have seen some posts in the archives about people wanting to know how to recrown a barrel.
    The process is amazingly simple and anyone with a hand drill and patience can complete it.
    Crowning a barrel is a process by which you remove material from the end so there are no irregularities in the lands and grooves as the bullet exits the barrel. Irregularities lead to lack of accuracy and we all know how bad that sucks.

    Please realize that this is not a be all end all tutorial but if you want to shorten a barrel for a Krink and dont want to pay 50 bucks this might be the way to go.

    Take one BRASS carriage bolt with the rounded head.
    One shop vice.
    one variable speed drill
    one bottle of LAPPING COMPOUND(not cutting fluid)

    Place the barrel in the vice with the barrel parrallel to the ground.
    Chuck carriage bolt in drill and put a patch in the end of the barrel so the compound doesnt go in too far.
    Slowly oscillate the drill so the bit is constantly moving around the muzzle in an arc and at a low speed until you have removed a decent amount of material and there is a visible slope in toward the threads. Clean barrel being very careful not to allow lapping compound too far inside. Finish with 1500 grit emory paper and reblue as you wish.

    I do this to milsurps frequently if there is an accuracy issue and have never failed to have my groups reduce in size.

    Good luck
