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.

    Here it is. Should have a watchmakers lathe for a job like this rather than a 40" bed Colchester! Mind you, I wouldn't be able to screw cut 1/2" UNF on my barrel then!
    Anyway, question was should I do the lathe work or the 8 cylinder drilling first? All a question of maintaining concentricity. Lathe first using a 4 jaw chuck. This made it easier to mark up and using the spindle lock, hold the piece while I used a single point tool to cut the indexing slots. The parting tool was best for the o ring slot. Drilling was in the Heath Robinson jig you'll see. Lots of scrap but it worked. Problem was getting accurate placement of the holes. 5.8mm in the original but due to the very thin Web between holes I went 5.5mm then opened up carefully with a 5mm chainsaw file. This meant that the machining marks are longitudal and less likely to score the pellets. How satisfying to find it fitted and worked first time in the Webley! Thanks also to whoever mentioned an index mark. I used some of my daughters 'goth black' nail varnish to fill the holes. Please don't ask me to makemake you one as I'd never do it for the price you can get an OEM one for!
    Regards, IGK

    Now that's done, what can I do next..........
    I know, the gun is rather long. Rather than getting a carbine, I think a bulpup stock could be the way to go. Someone dumped a load of kitchen fitters waste over the road. I couldn't believe what they ripped out. 4 huge bits of walnut approx 2'6" deep by 2" thick. 2 at 3'6" and 2 at 5'. Enough to make about a dozen stocks or as my mate says, 1 stock and 6 electric guitars. Yes, he's a luthier! Watch this space. Gimme a month or so IGK

    Nice work, it twas me who said about the indexing marks :) you never know, these are hard to buy in .22 so you may get a high price.... :)
    Nice custom bolt and your away :)

    Not sure this action would suit a bullpup though due to the big length it would be more like a standard length rifle :) but it will interesting to see :) nice sporter rifle bull pup stock wood look good

    Oh i reckon it would Tom. Only problem being dropping the gun from my shoulder between shots. A remote trigger poss electric but what about servo motor powered bolt cycling. Could be set up to cycle after the shot so would technically be semi auto. Is this allowed?
    Cheers, IGK

    That sir is nothing short of a fine job.

    Regarding the semi auto business yes mate Im afraid that isn't allowed, but it should be inmo

    I remember some designs having to be altered, due to infringement of possible guide lines I think the logun S16 was one of those before it was modified to suit current legislation.
