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.

  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.

    Hi All,
    I picked up a rifle in need of a freshen up from @sauer mid Feb, nice easy Transaction with great communication. Ive found a love for Springers and tinkering with them over the last 12 months or so.
    The rifle turned up a little better than I thought it would be which was great. There was No pitting and just the blueing was lacking as in the description. It was lacking power (8.9ftlbs) as informed and in need of some TLC.
    After opening her up I noticed the spring was like a boomerang but I had a spare spring to go straight in with guides to get the power up a little.

    The new spring was running very hot so a cut, flatten and a polish had it just under 12, the repeated until I got it down to 10.6 where I like my Springers. I also made a PTFE sleeve.
    I had the whole thing degreased as it was swimming in the black stuff.

    A little clean and a polish had it back to normal in no time.

    I had a little clean up of the barrel by just running some oil and a rag over the outside and a few pull throughs cleared it all up.
    I took the stock back and stained it with Colron wood dye in deep mahogany.

    Followed up by about 10 coats of Red Kite oil

    As it is today.
    Very happy with the rifle and a great little plinker. Only used it in the back garden and at 20 yards so far, I’m now on 5p ish groups when scoped. I’ll take it to Pete’s soon (along with the HW95 I just got as well) Not bad for a rifle that’s nearly 30 years old. I may end up getting her a full re-black if I can shoot her well enough out to about 30 yards.

    Thanks for reading

    Hopefully mate, I’ll have it up Pete’s maybe next week when I’ve finished the 95 as well and see if I get on with them both (I’m sure I will!).

    Thanks Paul
    appreciate you selling it too me!

    Anyone can do what I’ve just done to be honest. There’s so many people on this forum with a great skill set and I’ve just learnt bits from people on here and watching plenty of walk throughs on YouTube. It has become a bit of an obsession though!
