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.

  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.

    I want to replace the rubber butt pad on my s400 with a Bisley adjustable one.

    However.....

    I can't see any way to remove the old one! There are no visible screw holes and I just cant see any way of doing it without brute force and ignorance!

    Help and guidance appreciated! (And NOT don't use a Bisley Butt Plate! Lol).

    Funnily enough I'm just about to remove one from my S400. I have a spare stock (Minelli) which was changed for a custom stock when new so the holes haven't quite "healed". The two screw holes are just inside the central ribbed section of the pad - you should find them if you manipulate the rubber around that area. What I'm wondering is whether to insert a Philips, Pozi or straight screwdriver...?

    As above there are some small slits in the butt pad, if you push a pozidrive screwdriver into these slits there are 2 screws in there best to use vaseline to prevent the rubber binding on the screwdriver as you remove the screws.

    Thanks, Mickey.

    Luckily I have a display sized jar of Vaseline to hand - used, I hasten to add, as a carrier for graphite dust to lubricate guitar nuts - not mine!

    This ^^^^ :up:
    I always remember the first time I ever removed one from a 400 about 18 years ago. I knew there were supposed to be two screws holding it on so I drilled into the but pad not knowing there were two slits. Lucky enough I drilled in the exact right places. I wasn't putting the standard one back on anyway so it didn't really matter. But now I find them easy to do when I replace them for a Bisley adjustable version.

    Sorry Popgun, but I wouldn't put that thing on a Daystate, never mind a proper air rifle. Vile and gold.
