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've scoured youtube and the internet in general but I can't find a decent guide on how to mount a 2.5 to 3 inch picatinny rail to the front underside of the stock so I can mount/demount an Atlas or (clone Atlas) bipod. Anyone can give me a point in the right direction.

    Thanks in advance.

    Just buy the length of rail you need, it's not that difficult to drill through metal. then simply screw it to the stock making sure the screws don't come out the other side of the stock. or you could just buy a bipod that requires a single QD stud. much easier to fit and just as secure.

    Let a small piece of Anschutz type channel into the underside of the stock, then a pair of tee nuts to hold the Piccatinny rail.

    edit: this is a S200 but gives you the idea.

    You can buy the rail on ebay in various lengths, it may well be listed as 'weaver rail'. The rails will normally come pre-drilled to take cap head bolts. Some rails are flat on the bottom and others have a slight radius which would probably need to be flattened which you can do by rubbing it on some abrasive paper laid on a flat surface. Depending on where exactly you want to fit the rail you should make sure that there is sufficient wood in the stock for fixings and then place the rail against the stock and scribe around it. Inlet the stock to take the rail setting it about 1mm into the wood. I would fit it with epoxy and a couple of suitable screws. You can't set it in too far or the mounts may not fit properly.
