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.

    Looking at threads on here about people fitting shrouds for either cosmetic looks or to quieten down the rifle and they always look great,well they do to me. So has anyone fitted a shroud to the Mk3, can it even be done?

    U can easily fit mk4 or any custom carbon shroud. With mk4 you will have to rework the rear fitting.

    Can you please explain in what way you mean re-work the rear fitting, is it due to the breech being angled?

    Hi Kenny

    I have been doing some research on this for my MK3 there is nothing on the market that will fit the reason is the space between the air reservoir and the actual barrel the gap is too small for anything out there to fit.
    I have spoken to Paul at Smooth Shooting who makes custom shrouds and shoots a MK3 himself, he is in the process of trying to make a shroud for his own gun and has told me that he will let me know if he succeeds. I will keep you posted if you like.

    Cheers
    Tony

    sounds like some $# for me,

    the MK4 shroud has aa groove for the air cyl, so fits the MK3 perfectly,

    bthw, MK4, MK3, X2 and huntsman breech totaly interchangeble

    but the MK3 barrel has bigger outer dia (least on my oldie MK3 to compare with my MK4) so the central hole in the rear fitting for the shroud should be expanded

    may be later mk3 have the same barrel dia as MK4



    also you can check with the network54 experience here http://www.network54.com/Forum/7953...state+MK3+Sporter+got+an+upgrade+this+weekend.....


    p.s.
    Huggett makes a good shroud for daystate, but they are bloody expensive

    Sounds like I have been feed some duff info from Daystate themselves and from Smooth Shooting. If what you say is correct I will be a happy chappie as I want a shroud for my MK3 as you know the diameter on it increases as the barrel goes through the barrel band which is what I would like to change so that it looks like all the other shrouded Daystates, any further info would be very much appreciated,
    Cheers
    Tony

    You have the same idea as me then, I like the look of the shroud compared to the barrel with built in suppressor
