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.

    Hi, my Bisley adjustable butt pad, rubber section (see photo) had finally come loose, its lasted about 6 years, so its not done bad!

    Anyone know where to get a new rubber section?
    Theres nothing wrong with the metal base sections, its just the rubber section that I need.
    I've tried looking online, I know I can buy the whole thing, but as above I only need the rubber section (or a suitable alternative).

    Thanx

    I’ve got the Rothery (Bisley) catalogue on my lap mate and it’s not listed. Only the complete assembly.

    If I wanted to replace my rubber section of the butt pad with a plastic block material, which material would be best?
    PVC, Perspex, polyethelene, polypropylene, etc? Not bothered whether its soft or not, but it would need to be easy to cut, shape, drill etc. :thumb:

    At home today, so mooched about the shed, found spare bit of timber, suitable size to make a replacement pad, so I rough cut it, (hand saw) then I cut it back a bit finer (Jigasaw) then sanded it down (bench sander) and shaped it it more (sand paper and files), drilled it, then stained it, took about 60 minutes, its rough and ready but it will do the job, for now, Bought some plastic offcuts of the bay of E, so may make a plastic pad at some point, lets see how long this one lasts? :thumb:
    Mad AGF inventors in sheds strikes again... :D
    Wasn't sure what to finish it with, I just slapped some black shed / fence paint on it, then lightly sanded it when it dried to put another coat on, but actually quite liked the "distressed" look, so left it like that for now, may put more coats on it at some point....

    Thanx Pardner, but I'm a bit tight, theres nothing wrong with the two metal base plates, just the rubber pad bit, so it irked me to pay for a whole new one, so I had a play in the shed instead to see what i could knock up, gave me summit to do for an hour or so.
    I appreciate cheap timber is probably not the best material to use, but it actually feels quite solid.
    Also gave me an excuse to use some of the tools, I rarely use them at all lately.... :thumb:

    OK mate, but you can also just buy the butt rubbers on ebay too. Quite a bit cheaper.:up:

    Since you still have the Bisley rubber butt pad is it not possible to glue it back on to the metal plate?

    They are not glued, they actually have two screws into the rubber, through the metal base, but over the years the screw holes have got bigger and bigger, as the screws got loose and I re-tightened them, couple of times I've had to use slightly bigger screws, and now the rubber is starting to break up and I can't use bigger screws cos they will pierce the rubber completely, so can't really re-use the original pad, apart from as a template to make another one.

    Really? I looked but could only see the whole bisley set, or the thin non adjustable rubbers? or slip on pads...
    This'll do till it falls apart... :)

    Obviously a joke dont want to cause offence but i used to work with a bloke who did that with load of things.

    Honestly if you dont have a conscience then you dont pay for anything he never did. Frustrating as thats why we all probably pay more for stuff
