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.

    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.

  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.

    I'm in work at the mo and were sorting out the rack full of wood and came across some nice walnut with the dimensions of 45x110x2000mm could I make a stock out of this? Also any perticular method I need to engage whilst shaping the lumber to make life easier? Never attempted to make a stock before so should be fun lf the wood is thick enough to work with. Cheers si :)

    45mm seems a little thin, but would be good for pistol grips.

    That's a shame it's a really nice piece of wood. I have got a cp88 but won't be keeping that for long and don't have a ratty :( might have to go the timber yard see what they have.

    Right o, haven't had a chance to chuck the tape over my 97 sporter yet but doesnt sound promising. I think my boss has a future job for the wood but would give it to me if I was making a stock for my self so won't be able to sell I'm afraid. Didums maybe next time :(

    You could use it to make, a hamster, palm shelf, adjustable cheek piece, spacer between the butt pad and stock and along with a white line spacer, refinish the end of the stock, to give it that custom look.

    This sould give something to think on as you drift off tonight, sweet dreams. ; )

    There was no sweet dreams john, all was a nightmare thinking about putting all that crud on a gun :/ not my cuppa t all them extras on a gun stock. I would purely make another sporter for the wood and i love the original feel of a sporter. Dont know how i would go about the checkering tho, maybe a few you tube vids might help on that one.

    I know its a huge industry $$ seen the prices of those technical machines! If i ever met you at a future meet, you may be able to persuade me otherwise on these contraptions.
