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.

  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.

  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.

    Well I couldn't resist so took and extended lunch today to pick it up.
    Had to adjust the trigger when I got home as the 2nd stage was just way to long as it was,its better now and will see how I get on with it before I possibly adjust it again.
    I managed to get the action out of the stock without taking the bottle off as well which was a bit of a bonus for me.
    I was going to get the VC silencer till I saw how much longer it made the rifle.
    Instead the chap suggested one of their own,dont know is it is or not but it works very well indeed,its a Swift one if that means anything to anyone.
    Anyway a couple of not so good pics.

    Already have to some degree.
    BSA also suggested linseed oil so I have gone with some of that for now.
    Only done one coat for now and it does look better than it did straight out of the box.

    Good stuff, i am just on my third coat of danish on my R10 stock, it's made it darker and looks alot better. Just keep oiling it and leave to dry for 24 hours
    and start again :up:

    What do you make of the silencer on it?

    Well from just dry firing in the house it certainly seems very effective although I dont have anything to compare it to :D
    If I get chance I might do a bit of a vid comparing with and without,like I said though very happy with the silencer.

    I used linseed oil purely cause it was mentioned in the instructions and I already had it.
    I cant see why you cant use the Tru-oil though.

    Never ever put a sling on any rifle I have owned before,thought I would make a change :D

    http://www.airgunforum.co.uk/forums/album.php?albumid=2273&attachmentid=47941

    £19 for the whole thing including the swivels,well pleased.
    The colour of the woodwork has darkened a bit as well with the application of the linseed oil.
    I found the best thing to do is rub it on by hand and then just wait for it to dry,I was applying the oil and wiping of the excess originally and that just wasn't working,patience is the key.

    And here's one with Tesco's finest Walnut oil (£1.21)

    Rubbing a little and often generating heat helps to thin and so go into pores better

    It did :eek:

    I slipped with a screwdriver and gouged the trigger guard quite badly.
    I did sand it back to bear metal to try and remove the gouge,the only issue being the trigger guard seems to be made out of a very rough bit if metal that appears to be quite pitted once the paint is removed.
    Now I have a brass one coming to replace it.

    Been playing a bit the last few days,adjusted the trigger so it is less heavy,still waiting for the replacement trigger guard after my slip :rolleyes:
    In the mean time I put some camo tape on the barrel,I was fed up cleaning finger/hand prints off it so decided to do this

    http://www.airgunforum.co.uk/forums/album.php?albumid=2273&attachmentid=48040

    Still not 100% sure to be honest although I have got a buddy bottle cover in green to come as well,will see what it all looks like together.
