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.

    '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.

    Hello,

    Not too long ago (almost 1year) I had to sell my favourite springer.
    I have attached a photo of it.

    It's a webley longbow in a walnut tiger striped stock in .22. It was tuned by sandwell field sports to a very high standard imo and I have regretted selling it ever since.

    The blueing is the best I've ever seen and the stock isn't too shabby either :p

    I sold it on the bsa forum to a member called "the67al" or similar.
    He was card alister and from memory he lived south of the Midlands somewhere I think.

    So if anyone know where it Is or can contact him through the bsa forum then please get in contact.

    Regards
    Tom

    Description from "the67al"
    Here is my sfs tuned brum longbow in .22, I have finished the stock with around 14 coats of tru-oil and then a final one with stock sheen and conditioner, the trigger has been re-profiled and set back, huge improvement over standard and feels great, I took advice from bigtoe on here and bought a length of steel tube for the shroud, 20mmo/d and 16mm internal, cut it to length, rough polished, fitted an end cap and diy blued, took me all morning to do, but got the blueing right in the end, just a shade lighter than the action but looks great, mounted a nikko stirling gold crown 6x42 re-parallaxed to around 20 yrds and sitting in a sportsmatch dampamount, more than chuffed with the results as spent a lot of time on this, more accurate with the shroud fitted, very quiet and lovely to shoot.

    Can't bare the thought of putting a shroud over the amazing blueing. With a silencer it was soo good.

    Nick could you get me the last details of person who owned it or even where it has gone to?

    Cheers
    Tom

    A good person to ask about this rifle (and whether it's passed through his hands at any stage) is TopDog - he's a member here.
