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.

    When I see something like this, it really inspires me to employ my non-existent carpentry/woodcraft skills and have a go myself. I've just been looking at the grips for the Crosman 2240 on GMAC. It would be just the thing for my Ole Lady's pistol - and she wouldn't believe it if I'd made them myself.

    Have you used any particular kind of plywood? How will you finish them? Stain/oil or other finish? Be v. intersting to see the completed job!

    Good Luck with the project.

    Im a complete novice myself mate so id definitely recommend you have a go yourself, i bought some birch plywood from ebay for the grips pictured, the pump handle is a different plywood, not sure what it is, my old man fetches it from work for me, the pump handle plywood must be cheap, but with a bit of sanding it brings up nice finish, anything other then the real cheap and nasty stuff should be fine i should imagine

    Ive just put some varnish on the grips / pump, with the plywood sourced from different places they have come out looking totally different, will try get some pics up once its dried
