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.

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.

  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.

    So i decided to try and make a shroud for the S410 after seeing another post on here and here are the results so far. It's not quite finished yet and i have a few little things to do before i'm happy that it's complete, but here is a pic so far (more to follow when complete)...

    thanks oldbugger :up: The scope is a Nikko nighteater 6-24x56 but looks massive with the scope enhancer and sunshade on it. The shade is only there to protect the lens in storage and comes off to shoot (can only fit the lens cover on the flat sunshade and not the angled scope front), but the balance of the rifle is spot on for me.

    I'd be more than happy to put a step by step up if anyone thinks the job is decent enough to replicate :) I'll get it finished first and get a step by step done with detailed images.
    Thanks on the photography comment too :D

    I noticed yours isn't the S410F version,would be harder to replicate it on the F due to the little barrel cone thing...nicely done though :)

    Very true, any idea on the diameter on those? The shroud here has an outer diameter of 15mm so may possibly fit over the top but i doubt it??

    I'll get the vernier out and measure it later,if it dosen't fit over it,an o ring might seat it onto the face of it?

    The 15mm OD/13mm ID carbon wont go over the cone on the F. I know I am doing this same process now. My solution is to butt it up against a suitable o-ring.

    Will post pic when I get the gun back together tomorrow after today's tinker :D

    What did you do with the barrel band? Did you drill out the existing band or is it a custom band from Rowan Engineering.

    It's a custom barrel band, i don't think you have enough material on the existing band to drill it out to the correct diameter

    Ok. I drilled mine out to 15mm.

    The walls are just thick enough to do it but you need a good sharp drill bit and a good quality bench drill. I had one but not the other and still managed to get a whole that was OK.

    I'll try and get some pics together later.

    Looks alright that - although I think it would look better with a smaller 'scope (it's not all about looks though, is it? :p)

    How have you secured the shroud?

    Hi Cloverleaf,

    The barrel has been packed with electrical tape to provide a tight fit of the shroud and to try and keep the barrel centered and then fixed with the barrel band. The grub screw on the barrel end piece/weight is holding the shroud against the breach with an o-ring glued to the end of the shroud to stop the breach from being scratched and to try and provide a water tight seal (although the barrel will be greased under the shroud and the shroud and tape removed regularly for cleaning). I'm struggling to finish the end as i would like it though and have carbon wrapped the barrel end but it does not match the carbon tube and will be removed. I'm currently speaking to a friend who has access to a lathe to see if i can get an end piece made up that will be flush with the end of the shroud and hopefully finish the look quite nicely.
