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.

    Project home build finished.
    The first Rapid I bought new was an MFR in 2010 never understood why it was a multifunctional rifle?
    This is my Multi functional rifle
    HW100 .177 Silco barrel shortened to 17” 1/2 unf threaded
    Carbon long shroud to give a good long sight line. This just screws onto the barrel. I have started a larger diameter silenced shroud for use when scoped.
    Steyr lg110 target sights.
    Laminate home made stock though it had a basic shape cut, wish it hadn’t as this limited what I could do and I have to say I wasn’t really enjoying doing the stock work home made cheek piece riser, trigger guard.
    Shortened the bolt too.
    Fentons Titanium air cylinder ( thanks to John1945 for that) The gauge was remove from the front fitting and a Foster fitting set in with a delrin cover the rear fitting modified and threaded to M14 x1.5 to accept a standard 280 cc bottle valve.
    Stock blank.
    And now just screw off the open sighted barrel sleeve and screw on the back vented silenced shroud and this is now a multifunction rifle IMO

    Photos don’t show the colours very well but it feels great and Shoots lovely. Very enjoyable using open sights.

    Wow John you've done some work on that. At first glance i thought it's not a rapid.....

    It's superb and totally different to looking like a rapid but I like it :D

    You've sorted the stock and it's a tidy job. I love how you can use open sights on it too. With the Fenton's titanium tube it should be pretty well balanced and I like the carbon tube with the sights on and it covers up the unblacked silco barrel :thumb:

    Now added the full back vented shroud. The open sight sleeve with foresight screws off and this one screws on add the scope and now this really is a multi function rifle.
    I would have liked a larger diameter carbon shroud but the Impact air action has the annoying angle at the front that doesn’t for me work with anything larger than 30mm diameter tube. I don’t like reducer type end plugs.
    Looking out for a RAW action for this setup now.
