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.

    To clear this text box, click on the 'X' in the top right-hand corner.

I am going to ask a favour of a very clever chap.

    Ok, this is a strange thread, but I hope to gain some good advice to set the project off to a good start. I am going to approach a very good friend of mine, who trained as a gunsmith in Switzerland many years ago. I want to ask him, if he will consider having a go at building me a 'Bullpup' using the guts of a 'HW100'. He has a flare for engineering projects and loves a challenge. His workmanship and quality to finish of things that he takes on, is second to none. He builds guitars now, and has a web site under the name Egger guitars.

    However, as much as I love the idea of seeing what he could achieve, I am struggling to think how to explain what the 'Bullpup' look is all about. I intend to show him various pictures of 'Crickets' to give him a flavour of what I would love to achieve around the workings of the HW, but I just wonder if any 'pup' fans could throw me some pointer's that may be worth mentioning up front. His wood working skills are just outstanding, along with his method approach to engineering rethinking. He has marvelled at the various rifles that I have shown him up to now, and I just know that with the right sales pitch from me upfront, he will rise to the challenge, and come up with a thing of wonder. So if you want to chip in with any pointers of interest, I would be very pleased for any tips or comments. Watch this space members. :D KB1

    you could extend the standard bullpup concept by encasing extras in stock to streamline. eg.laser/torch in front underneath...maybe even go for enclosed sights/scope?

    I think it's a great idea!

    if I was going to have a bullpup, it would be something very similar to this!

    I would love to show him the 'Cricket' or 'Edgun' and just ask can you make me something like this. As to funds, he will not ask me for a penny, but I fully intend to pay him handsomely should he fancy having a go. I think that if he is up for it, the end result will be very interesting to show to the forum. I am going to pop around this weekend and drop the question. Keep you all posted. KB1:moo:

    Thanks Stevie, I can assure you, the picture that you have sent, will be one of the images that I show to Reudi, as I begin my pitch. My 100 is a carbine set up with the short barrel and cylinder. My end goal wish is to achieve a short bullpup looking rifle. But I will also be open to any opinions that he may well have towards a possible build programme. KB1

    OMG, you have really p****** me off sending that link. I thought I was venturing in to the realms of the untried. That's put a right downer on my morning. Going to have to have a rethink over this. Thanks again, but what a gutter. KB1:(

    Get him to make it look like an FN2000 which is a modern military bulpup with integrated grenade launcher. Instead you could have an integrated hi power led lamp.[​IMG]

    Imagine that as a silhouette but in a lovely laminate. Ignoring the sight rail.

    Its often the wood that attracts me to the overall look of a rifle. Least now if I do still venture in to chatting about a possible project, I have no reason to be unable to describe what I am after. KB1

    You are not wrong there. I'm currently visualising a nice matt tiger stripe grain effect.

    me personally if i was to bullpup my hw100, the big regret or the headache would be keeping the great side lever cocking arm in a suitable place, maybe a connecting rod with some kind of inletting on the side of stock so sidelevers still in the right place, once loaded connecting rod/arm hides in recess... if that makes any sense lol... all the best steve
