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.

    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.'

  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.

    Recently acquired a 300 SU to play with , I’ve managed to resurrect the diopter which was rusty and wouldn’t adjust properly . What I am trying to find is a raiser block for the diopter & a high front sight. It’s a MK 2 which came with the single piece in the stock ( not the interchangeable pair ) and the full length stippling on the lower part of the for-end.

    any ideas where I might be able to track these down ?

    the gun shoots beautifully and is very accurate , be great to finish it.

    thank you.

    Thanks I’ll have a look. Ideally I’d like originals , and of course one item is useless without the other.

    I'd say these will be extremely difficult to come by.
    I have an SU that came with exactly what you're looking for, including a second cheekpiece. Its the only one I've ever seen for sale with the 2nd cheekpiece.

    Try Egun.de

    an original will be like rocking horse poo, as Rob says try egun.de, alternatively give centra uk a bell, but if you want original you will likely need a whole lot of luck or patience

    Hi Norman ,

    ive banged a wanted add up, Jasper7 has kindly responded with some raiser photos he has from a 300. I’m trying to research which ones I actually need, I’ve added my understanding of what they should be on the wanted add I posted . I’m wondering having looked at the excellent “ vintage gallery “ If the MK1 & 2 were different in many ways ? I know the MK1 came with two cheek pieces and two front sights , the MK2 ( mine ) has a single cheek piece with available screw adjustment, I assume it also came with a single raiser block configured like the two sets of 4 x grooves on the gun cylinder , photos on the vintage Airgun gallery would suggest this is so.

    On Jasper 7’s photos I’m not sure what the smaller block is for . :facepalm:

    ahh that explains things a little more , thank you John .

    I fancy the Jasper 7 raisers are from the MK1 SU.

    my front sight is a single cast unit that used a 2” 1/4 “ collar that slips over the barrel retained by a dovetail pin underneath the barrel . I believe the front sights of the MK 1 or possibly the Junior 300 were on a system the same as used for fixing the rear diopter or indeed a scope .

    Search still goes on.:(

    Joe,

    Good luck!
