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.

    I have not done this myself but talking to friends I get the impression that the two main reasons for this is 1. the barrels need to be carefully cleaned so that there are not patches of dirt, grease etc ie finger prints. and 2, an even thickness of coating must be applied to the whole barrel. These guys where blueing their shotgun barrels but I suspect there is little or no difference. You may also want to scan a few shotgun forums for a complete answer though mate.

    I use Bisley re blue,It is only really intended for touching up scratches ect.I have read many times the problem you are having.The trouble is you can not get an even coat,the more you apply the darker it gets.If you could buy it in aerosol form then I think that the results would be better.Manchester Air guns do a re bluing service,I think they charge about £30- £40 quid.Good luck anyway :up:

    Ok this IS NOT what you want to hear.

    You cannot reblue gamos. Infact they were never blued in the first place. The grade of steel Gamo use is of such a poor quality that actual "blue" does not adhere to its surface, it just doesnt work!! Gamo use a type of chemical blacking of their own design, which cannot be bought.

    I know I made gamos sound bloody terrible just then, but they are actually great rifles. They have exeptionally good barrels for a springer of its price range inface a local here has been managing one hole groups at 50m with his gamo cfx!! I use mine for hunting out to 65m and it does the job well.

    You could try "Rust eater".
    Gives a very strange but pleasing finish.
    Just rub down the barrel with wire wool.
    Put on rubber gloves, soak up a cloth with it.
    Then just wipe it over and let it dry slowly in a cool dark place. if its not dark enough, go over it again.
    Then with fine (0000 grade) wire wool, and motor oil, lightly polish it up.
    Ends up looking like the bluing found on old "western" revolvers.
