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. No longer allowed 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- We now do not allow political and religion threads anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section) unless Airgun related and they must be put in the Airgun related politics section..

    Staff will not move posts for you if you put it in the wrong section – it will simply be deleted. You will then have to type it all out again and put it in the right place, so heed this warning.

    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 have been thinking of getting a CS800 stock for my 97kt, and would like to ask some advice.
    Anyone who has owned one how did you find it? is it worth having the rosewood cap fitted.
    And also I e-mailed the company and asked about a better/ high end bit of walnut for the stock.
    They said that they did not do different grades but for an extra £40 they would select a better one from their blanks. Has anyone done that? and if so were you happy with the walnut figuration of the selected stock. Thanks in advance for your answers.

    I had a CS800 stock on a 97. It was select but not capped. I liked the vertical pistol grip and thumb shelf. Cheekpiece was perfect height too.
    Ergonomically it was a very good fit for me. Obviously ymmv.
    The stock was nicely featured and had a nice stripe to it. I could have gone to town on it but sold it.
    The stock bolts always came loose. dunno why but every sesh they would require re-tightening. Loctite may be required.
    CS are not really a custom bespoke outfit. They sell various stock patterns for a fair range of guns. Their customisation comes from the options you can add.
    They will do minor custom work such a minor re-shaping or styling but you can't get something made to measure to your exact personal spec. That aint their gig.
    It's always worth discussing what you want and they either will or won't and give their reasons.
    Ultimately you do get a stock that's much nicer than an oem factory varnished jobby and you can can spec in some nice features.
    For the price they are great value as per the amount you see here.
    Bear in mind Walnut comes in many grades. 'select' does not necessarily mean 'fancy' and certainly not 'exhibition'. By and large though you do get some nice features that with a bit of extra work can really produce a nice stock.

    Thanks for that Wofty, I just like the look of the 800 as it's more classic than a out and out custom job.

    Matter of taste but I think their forend chequering is awful. Pistol grip is ok.

    I was thinking of no chequering at all, I think it will look better that way.

    Hi Dez.
    Wayne is selling a cs700 for a 97 on the other forum.
    He might even let you try it for size.

    Just for @Bagster66, as i know he will like this! Here is the cs800 i got a couple of months ago, on my .20 hw100kt. Paid extra for the better walnut, rosewood capping and the stippling. I love a stippled stock! Definately think its worth the extra to guarantee a nice piece of timber, though you could chance it and end up with something as nice or nicer still without paying the £40. Ive just seen too many bland ones to take a chance. Mine has some nice grain and when i get round to oiling it properly it will really look nice. Hope that helps you a little.

    I’ve got a CS500 on my 97 and I couldn’t be happier. The 700 is a thumbhole version of the 500 and the 800 is different altogether. I do have a CS800 on my Rapid and it’s sublime.

    Rosewood caps etc are all visual stuff, so tart up how you prefer.

    You’re not going to get shotgun quality walnut out of CS, but their select woods for the extra £40 are usually better than standard.

    Look at my current thread regarding the best quality cs 700 that i am currently oiling in 2 days. The walnut on that stock is fairly representative of there better quality american black walnut. as far as customising it to your spec. they want you to give them your length of pull shoulder to trigger so that you are not overstretched.You can have extras like adjustable butt pads. I have had this made with just a bare stock no cap or chequering at all. its on this page i think or the last definitly. It will give you a good idea. I really like them i have had 8 i think.

    If you hunt the CS700 which I prefer, if you target shoot the CS800 might be better but there's some overlap.

    No probs mate, i just prefer the cs800 over the cs700 too. Mines a hunting rig and fine for me. My mate has a cs700 and its lovely too but i just prefer the cs800. More comfy i think.

    I had a cs700 and an 800 over time and much preferred the 700.

    800 felt too chunky for me

    Although both beautiful things

    Thanks for that mate but it's the chunky bit I am after but not as chunky as the 300 stock. I'm going for the CS 800 and pay the £40 for the selected stock. I will ring them and ask for stippling just on the pistol grip as well.
    Thanks to everyone for your input. :thumb:
