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.

    '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.

  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.

An Even More Limited Edition

    Occasionally I like to add some bit's to a rifle, just as I put it to personalise it.

    When I bought my Peppered HW98 limited edition, I loved it. For me though it just needed that little something. With the colouring of it, it had to be silver bit's to add. So I looked in the normal places and got some stock bolts, trigger guard, Safety catch, and found some silver scope mount bolts already on one of my rifles.

    Great but it needed that something else. Then I had that Eureka moment. As the barrel separates I could put a silver band in between the 2 bit's of the barrel. That was it Yes.:up:

    OK I would like to take the credit for that but chatting to a friend that has one, it was actually his idea, and I thought it was a great one. I had to say this as he does frequent this forum and he would let it be known I had told a little porky pie. :p

    The next question was where the bloody hell will I get one from. Then the penny dropped we have some great talent on this forum ask for some help. I knew just the fella, Shauny.
    He agreed so I gave him the measurements the next day he had made one. He is a good lad and of course what he made for me is exactly what I wanted.:up:

    It arrived today and I assembled all my bits together and fitted them. I don't think I have gone mad and spoiled the look of it. I know it's not every bodies cup of Tea but I am happy with it. Well almost.

    I am now thinking of getting a nicer trigger blade. Is fitting a new blade just simply knocking that tiny pin out and fitting the new one.

    Lastly I am thinking of getting either a Rowan adjustable butt plate or maybe, just one of those plates that fit on for a sling fitting.

    Here are some photo's of it to see what your opinions are. You can say if you think I have spoiled it, I am just happy to see what people think.

    Sweet. Surprising how something so small can make a big difference. Very nice 98. I have changed my 97k silverline stock bolts to stainless but need to do something about the butt. Needs a steel/ally spacer I think or an adjustable butt pad. The standard one looks too plain.

    I love those little personal touches you can do to things just to make them yours, the trick is knowing when to stop..

    Nice job Ade :thumb: - adds accents to what is a very monotone rifle without being too OTT.

    Good looking gun Ade. I was considering buying a new gun and I think it might be a 98 after seeing yours.

    That looks cool, I’m planning to add some touches to mine when it comes back, maybe ti bolts and a new trigger blade.
    I love a silver themed project.
