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.'

  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.

    Got two 16" .22 theoben Rapid barrels back today from Colin and very well packed they were.

    One of these barrels if you had seen it beforehand had a massive gouge out of it but was said to be very accurate so I polished it out[​IMG][​IMG] and gave it to colin in a bit of a rough state, he obviously put some more polishing into them both.

    Anyhow the results are what can I say brilliant! and he is a nice guy to boot, cant recommend him enough.[​IMG][​IMG]

    As good as Theoben bluing? I would say definitely.

    To be honest mate I think they have had a bereavement in the family so best wishes to them at this difficult time.

    I love Rapids paul or should I say Theobens in general , Ive owned 7 rapids up to now, and 5 gasrams, but to some of the more seasoned Rapid fans Im a newbie.

    But I first shot a mates Rapid in 1990 and he still has it, but I couldn't afford one back then, I had a theoben grand prix then a fenman for ten years that was a great little rifle, but I have been perving over rapids since I was about 11 yrs old and still have all the magazine reviews from the early mk1s to the last of the mk2s.

    Ive got a mk2 .177 that I wouldn't part with for a gold pig, best one Ive owned, and its been a bit like living the childhood dream with that gun, I had all the must have bits done, then used it for two seasons and its put a lot of shots away that are ingrained in my memory now, so I feel officially aquainted;):D:up:

    These two .22 barrels may have to be sold now as they are surplus to requirement as I sold my .22 regged anchutz block the other day, and Ive started to wonder why the hell did I do that:confused: would have looked mint with one of these blued barrels on and the stock refinishing using my own method to bring the grain out, anyway there are always more rapids out there for the taking/building, got to love them.
