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.

    Just taken my D/AR out of the cabinet for a weekend hug, and upon picking her up, I felt some movement between the gun and the stock. I suppose its all to do with the gun being a bad fit to the stock, and that one stupid anchor point of an hex bolt holding the two together. It feels as if the rifle is pivoting left and right within the wood work of the gun. Its a good 1 or 2 mm movement that I can feel.

    Hopefully on tightening that one bloody bolt, the thing will become one unit again. This has really p****d me off, as I spent a good hour setting my zero's Thursday afternoon, and finding the hold overs for various distances. Now the bloody thing is going to be way out of zero I expect. Gutted.

    I like this rifle, but its a big let down when you come up against things like this. Poor show in my mind, for something that cost so flipping much in the first place. No such complaint with my 'Browning' or 'Hw'. :mad:

    Anybody else had a similar problem with their 'Ranger'. KB1

    As I thought, that bloody hex bolt had come loose. Have tightened it up and the rifle is locked solid in to the wood. Back to the drawing board again on the next dry day I suppose. Ahrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrggggggggggggggggggg. KB1

    Glad to know that I am not the owner of a 'Friday afternoon gun'. But nevertheless as stated, all that money and it would appear that its the norm for them not to fit properly whatsoever. What's the point in that lovely bit of wood work, if the metal is not going to stay put. Its really got my goat up, this has.

    I may even cut my losses and sell at a loss and start again. I don't like things that are not quality. In my mind, quality is what its all about in rifles. Really let down having experienced this. Not a happy KB1:protest::smash:

    Thanks for that Dave, yes I am the only owner. I might give that a try or I may take it back to the Airgun Centre and see if they can help. I love it otherwise. So I take your point. Trouble is, it don't take much to p""" me off. KB1

    i had the stock off mine recently and had this issue the next time out and just tightened it a bit more , but do not crank it up any more than you need to as it may affect accuracy . dont forget these nice walnut stocks are a natural product on any gun so to some extent will be affected by humidity. once you have it right it will probably stay that way. atvb gary. :up:

    That makes perfect sense
    So why didn't I think of it?

    I believe this may be the reason why on some wet, cold days my shooting is poorer than usual
    but then again it would be the same on hot summer days or not?

    However I will try and find the post on the DOC unless someone has a link for it
    I find looking for specific info on that site a pain in the a$$
