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.

    While hunting for a souvenir to take back from my holiday, I found an almost mint beech mk3 full length in .177 flavour. Hurrah!
    I've worked on a few of these in recent weeks, and I'm getting some great feedback from customers of my kits who own them. I had to get it..........:eek:

    We're in a rented cottage with no pellets, scope or permission to shoot, so I'm restricted to a quick fondle with the curtains shut :)eek:) until I get home tomorrow. I have a list of eleven kits I need to make on my return, but if I get the chance I know what the twelfth will be!:cool:

    A good point! I'm right handed, so why does the right handed action not allow you to cock and hold the lever with your right and load the pellet with the left?
    Do any lefties have the same (but opposite) problem?

    I know, I need a left handed action in a right handed stock. That's where HW got it right, a nice big loading space!

    I have to concede, I'm not a HW fan at all, but they certainly did get that bit right!!!

    Congrats, matey.

    Knew it wouldn't be long before you succumbed! :D

    All the best with it, hope you like yours as much as I like mine. Just holding off for a chrono before I stick your kit in, can't wait!

I will be interested to know what you think when you have given her a good seein' too! I think I like the pro-sport better, looks kind of neater somehow, but I gather not as forgiving to shoot?

    Nice one Tinbum
    That is the sort of souvenir I wish I could bring back from holiday rather than a hat and ball point point pen.
    I really do enjoy my TX which is why I am thinking about getting one of your kits in the near future.
    ..and there is nothing wrong with drawing the curtains either..

    Only as a thought but if you do make one for your TX could you post a 'how to' with photos please.
    Mainly as I've not taken my gun to bits yet!

    Many thanks to you.

    All this talk of tx,s ! After trying kevs out it's got to be done, rommel said he'd do the walnut for £420.
    Where you to? Looks like somewhere along the south coast.

    Wotcha Jamie! We're near Lyme Regis. I couldn't bring myself to pay that much for one, I got this for erm.... Well. A lot less with a cack hawke nite-eye scope which I haven't even bothered to mount! I've seen a couple of good second hand walnut HC's on the forums and Kevs selling his walnut prosport too.
