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.

  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.

Feinwerkbau 300su Mk2

    New to me and a rifle I've been searching for, for a long time.
    This is a MK2 universal from 1981.
    This stock variant has a longer but far slimmer forend than the standard 300s.
    The slimmer forend makes it far lighter to hold.
    This model has a feature to use different height cheekpieces and I have a lower one supplied with the rifle, but the fitted "blonde" one is better suited to scope height.
    The correct dioptre and foresight also came with the rifle as well as a riser for the dioptre. Another feature of this particular model is the ability to change the whole foresight. This came with the foresight that requires a riser.

    The foresight and dioptre (and riser) are bagged up safely as I intend to use the rifle scoped.

    This is in lovely condition for its age. The metalwork is original and gleaming with only a few tiny marks. The stock shows a few signs of use over the years.

    Power is a little low over the Skan, and though having a new breech seal, will likely benefit from a new set of springs, piston ring and buffer, which I'll do myself.

    Nice wood grains! Looks something had been done to highlighted the grains? Usually I found the wood on a FWB300 looks a bit plain....

    Very nice indeed Rob.
    My first experience with a 300 was on a bell target comp and i was very impressed with the gun.
    Ever since then they have been on my radar so One day i will own a variant of it ......

    I'm really pleased with it Ant. And looking forward to working on it.
    I like these old 10m rifles. Odd considering I don't shoot targets.

    But one day my old bones may decide I have to. At that point, I'll be using one (or two) of these.

    Hi Lee
    I loved my old 300s but this is seriously off the scale in terms of an improvement in stock design.
    There's 8 years difference between my old one and this and it shows in the stock design. I can (almost) imagine me having a crack at HFT with this.

    i've just put about 50 through it but it does have a variation in power.
    I'll need to get it rebuilt before I can really put it through its paces

    475fps to 520
    It definitely needs a rebuild. These should run within a few fps

    Well the new seals turned up unexpectedly early yesterday so I started work on the rebuild just before tea.

    I luckily caught the buffer before it turned to the usual mushy grit so an easy clean.
    New green seals on and a thorough clean and back together

    Now running at a very nice 620fps with express and slick as anything

    Happy days
