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.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    Yes I am a tight a###! If I can make it I won't buy it! Only have one mag with the fx so thought id try to make a spare (as they're so small and easy to lose).Couple of hours on the lathe and this is what I have so far. Have to make a jig next that indexes in the peripheral detents then can drill the holes. Would have liked to have drilled before I machined the slot for the 'o' ring but that would mean losing my datum in the lathe. Oops tech jargon running out of control! Watch this space for the next stage and first test shots. Regards, IGK

    If you've not done so already, a good improvement to by made is a shot indicator so you know your on you last shot. Or only drill/turn 7 holes so you know when you can't return the bolt forwards that your empty....
    My thoughts :D

    I suppose if there was a nice red line on the outside to match the striker housing, provided the magazine is rotated so this lines up with a datum before the bolt is housed then it'll be easy to see when your last shot is up. Important for me as I can't reload with the magazine in due to scope mount positioning. Watch this space. IGK

    Flippin heck Ill eat my words.

    Somebody said they was going to try making one the other day and I advised them not to, was it you?

    If it was, Ill learn from my mistake, that is "you never know who you are talking to over the web" well done looks well machined.

    No pal, its a whopper. When I got it to the workshop I had to dismantle it. 4 of us to carry the bed in, 2 for the headstock. Biggest job I did on it was an 18" disc 1 3/8" thick I mild steel for my wood chipper. Tb
    hey don't make them like this anymore! IGK

    So how did you machine the indexing grooves?

    l take it you have a miller also?

    Im sure you could knock up a single shot tray also for precision shooting while your at it, I don't know if anyone makes one for the fx2000 you may sell a few.
