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.

  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.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    For those who followed my Webley Alecto post. I have made a new quick release shoulder stock, as the metal my first one was made of, was too flexible, the new one is made of stronger metal, much better now. View attachment 92653 View attachment 92654

    Thank's for the reply, it is easy enough to DIY, as the bits are easy to obtain from a fishing tackle shop, had the bits already, only made it as nothing like it made for this gun, not that I could find anyway. Use the gun for rats and roosting pigeons in and around farm buildings, and the shoulder stock helps with accuracy and a clean kill. No plans to make and sell. Atb, Bob.

    It makes a nice accurate gun for close range rats and roosting pigeons. And with the quick release, it only takes a couple of seconds to put on or take off. Bob

    First of all, I am better at doing than explaining. Take great care when drilling the palm rest. Parts used, can be purchased at a fishing tackle store, you will want a extending bank stick, one with a hollow center piece, to take a rivet, see off cuts picture, and a PROLOGIC quick release, you will also require some metal putty, I used some from Wilco motorsave, called ABRO STEEL, you will also require a few tools, ie, a workmate or vice, a pipe cutter or JR hacksaw, a rivet gun, cordless drill and grips, etc. First remove the palm rest from the gun, then take off the bottom plate from the palm rest, then position the quick release on the palm rest, mark round it with a pencil, I used a auto center punch to mark the center of the hole to be drilled, Drilled and threaded, to take a 3/8" British standard fine bolt, screw bolt into hole, from the outside, then fill the inside with metal putty, replace the bottom plate, then leave for several hrs to set, then cut off the bolt head, leaving aprox 3/8", Do not hold the palm rest to cut off the bolt, Hold the bolt head instead, saves putting undue stress on the palm rest, then screw on one half of the quick release, I used thread lock, do not over tighten. Now for the stock, use the inner part of the bank stick, attach the other half of the quick release to it, now fit to the gun, cut to length, a little at a time, until you have the the correct length for sighting the gun, now cut a length of the thicker part of the bank stick, to make the shoulder part, drill a hole in one side, so the main arm is a tight fit, then drill a hole in the other side, to take the rivet, put on gun and line things up, take off gun and rivet. That was long winded, hope it helps. Some pictures that may help. View attachment 92938 View attachment 92939 View attachment 92940 View attachment 92941 View attachment 92942 View attachment 92943 View attachment 92945 View attachment 92946 View attachment 92947 PS. Do the work with the metal putty Fast, as it goes off quick, put the bottom plate back on before it goes off. Atb Bob.

    The finished article. View attachment 92948 Post some pictures if you make one. But please do not blame me, if you ruin the palm rest, Do not use the stock to carry the gun, as you know the palm rest is only made of plastic, but is more than strong enough for the job, the putty is what gives it that extra strength. To finish it of, I rubbed it down with wire wool and put masking tape round the quick release, then sprayed it with a few coats of mat black. One more thing, just make sure the bolt you use, will fit the quick release. Atb, Bob.

    IMHO if you want a rifle,buy a rifle.

    That said,Bob's attempt looks very professional and could easily sell as a commercial adaptation.

    I have a pipe bender, it is called my knee. As it is made of alloy, you should not require a pipe bender. Atb, Bob.

    Thank's for the praise, but I don't think I would get rich making them. As for buy a rifle, I have a couple, but for close range work, inside buildings, with this set up, I have the benefit of both a pistol and a rifle, Can carry it, leaving both hands free to do other jobs, a bit hard to do with a 10lb rifle and scope slung round my neck, and for roosting pigeons I can clip on the stock to ensure a accurate clean kill. and I do like to mod things. Have a couple of rifles, but could not leave them standard either, never happy with what comes out of the box. If we all liked the same thing, there would be only one air gun made, no one would ever mod them or add to them, and not much point in having this forum. :). Atb, Bob.

    I know this is a kinda old thread now, but here is my Webley Alecto tactical.....

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    I used a Crossman 2250 stock, cut off the grips and moulded on a spare palm shelf for the Alecto with epoxy resin.

    It now comes on and off just like the palm shelf.

    Also fitted is a Weihrauch silencer, 2-8x32 pistol scope and flashlight with laser.
    Very accurate 10-25m and silent with no recoil.
