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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.

    Don’t know if anyone has experience with these, however my old man bought this in ‘07 for £250 as it is here, it’s a lovely rifle, nice balance and powerful, however he’s getting tired of me shouting BOINK every time he pulls the trigger as that’s exactly what it does, the twang is pretty awful!

    Has anyone any experience of how to reduce said Boink?!

    Thank you in advance!

    It’s the Lightning “Deluxe” which came with that stock and brass trigger. Only found out from googling it last night! Haven’t seen many about mind

    It would be even nicer with chequering. Usually, you'd expect 'deluxe' to include that along with selected wood. Nevertheless, nice. :up:

    I actually quite like that there isn’t any chequering, it’s very smooth and the balance is nice. The boinking seems to have miraculously disappeared also. I’ve been shooting it all day and all of a sudden the boink disappeared.

    I thought that this was because I’d put over a hundred pellets through it and it was warm, left it in the hall cupboard for a few hours (cold) and tried again. Boink has disappeared in the first time since ownership... it now goes off with a big thud and predictable kick and recoil. As apposed to being allover the place... very strange I must say
