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. 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.

    Hi all,

    Thought I'd post a pic and some details of my heavily modified BSA R10 MK2 (.177). It's had a quite a bit of work done and has cost me far more than I wanted to spend. :S

    - Barrel replaced with 12" match grade one. (original was 15" standard VC)
    - Huub 12" full length shroud
    - JB Stage 1 tune (Blue print)
    - JB Stage 2 tune (Pellet Guide System)
    - JB Custom Shroud Baffles
    - Stock re-finished (long story)

    Apologies for the smart phone pictures, I will get around to taking some with my D-SLR cam. I've also included some groupings that JB did at 50 yards with some cheap Accupell pellets. The barrel seems compatible with a wide range of pellets.

    When you say JB stage one and stage two, is that the same as a full blueprint or just partial?

    Be interested to know how you finished the stock as it looks great! :up: Maybe in a bit of a write up/tutorial if you have time?

    Thanks all, it's been in a stage of development for three months so I'm glad to get it back. I've still not actually shot the thing yet as my gun club is closed because of the storms we had a month or two back!

    Hi Steve,

    Yes, stage 1 - aka Blue Print. Stage 2 - Pellet Guide. Probably could have worded it better to be fair. I'd love to claim that the stock re-finish was my own work, however it was actually completed by Castle Gun Makers (http://www.castlegunmakers.co.uk). I didn't have the time to do it myself but I can highly recommend them. Great service and very reasonable rates.

    Cheers.

    Stunning, mate.

    The R10 mkII is the rifle I'd love to own, and the shroud sits lovely on that gorgeous piece of walnut. Shortening the barrel is a route I know I'd end up going down if I get my hands on one. Looks fantastic.

    How does the shroud work out report wise compared to a mod?

    I so need to find someone near me with one of these just to shoulder it and see if I like it as much as I think I will. Could be expensive though... :D

    Hooster - Yes, I am itching to try it out. Might have to find another gun club while mine is out of action.

    TrouserFerret - The sound with the shroud on is honestly at least as quiet as the original VC silencer. Mr Bowkett did fit his own custom designed baffles so maybe this improved things. It's as quiet as any gun I've heard so happy days. :) I'd say if you were near me you could come and have a shoot of it but I see you're in Scotland!

    Hoping it's worth it yeah! Total costs were:-

    Rifle: £675
    JB Blue Print: £125
    Match Grade Barrel + Pellet Guide Modification: £200
    Stock Re-finish: £150
    Huub Shroud: £100

    JB wouldn't actually tell me what brand of barrel he used either. The only information he would give me is that it's a German barrel and not LW, for some reason he wanted to keep that information to himself. The stock re-finish was my own fault. I had a bad experience with 0000 grade wire wool which resulted in fibers being embedded in the grain. That said though it looks a lot better than it did when I bought it and the grain has come out nicely.
