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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  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.

    well since the bunnies have got a bit shy and dont seem to want to come out to play :( ive got bored and after sitting staring ant my 243 i got fed up with its scrawny scrawny size 0 look so decided to beef it up a little and give it some attitude with a full barrel shroud conversion :rolleyes:, its the 19" style barrel so with the mod it goes on for ever but with the all in one fatter look it dosnt seem as bad imo. just need to black it up a bit and open the inlet for the barrel on the stock and she is good to go.

    yep, its a cut and shut from an old parker hale that is vented at 45deg along the first chamber to force the air out into the shroud, the reflex part of the shroud only covers 50% of the barrel the rest down to action is just cosmetic. proof is in the pudding so wont know if has made much difference.

    Let us know how you get on with it - I love seeing homemade mods that work well.

    finished this is a shroud/reflex barrel, it is a reflex mod that covers 50% of the barrel but kept the rest of the external tube for cosmetic reasons. Dont worry the scope isnt touching the barrel :eek: i can get a 1.5mm feeler gauge under it :D. You may think it would be quite heavy now but it was 4.6 kilos all in, and is now 4.2 kilos because i had to take allot of wood out to take the shroud witch only adds 9oz to the barrel itself :up:. next is to shorten the barrel from 19" to 13" and adjust the shroud with internal reflex to fit.

    ive always thought that full barrel style or american barrels look stupid with great big mods on the end, this gives it a bit of girth :D.
