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.

  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.

Question Is spraying a Stock ever a good idea ?

    I bought a stock off ebay the other night which i'm going to have to modify to fit my gun and no its not one of the PCP ones although i was considering it but there would have been too much work and hassle involved so i opted for something that i wouldn't have to do much too.

    Up till last night i was just going to sand it down and stain it but i got to wonderin what it would look like in say Mat or Satin Black to give it kinda the tactical look so my question is has anybody done this with good results and if so what type of paint / process was used, it would obviously have to be something pretty tough wearing so it wouldn't scratch easily or chip ?

    Just an idea and maybe one that might be a waste of time but just thought i would ask and see what comes back.

    Its not something I would ever do but I have seen it done.
    TBH I think if you have a nice piece of wood you should stick with that. Sand it, Oil it and make it look lovely!
    I must say none of the painted ones I have ever seen looked nice, Usually comes out looking very tacky tbh.

    Yeah i kinda figured it would be a bad idea, the stock is the SMK X19 that was on ebay the other day[​IMG]
    I was thinking before i came up with the painting idea of staining it a good bit darker something along the lines of rosewood its current shade is a bit light for my taste.

    I wouldn't mind having some type of patterning on it as well but i've never done it before so might look round and see if i can find a man who can.

    I'm not sure what they make the stocks for smk x19's from, but I rubbed mine down to restrain it darker- it's a weird light powdery wood (when sanded), almost like bamboo- takes quite sometime to get it to a point where stain will stick to it evenly. Cheers j

    I forget the product name (krayton or something ?), but there is a spray-on paint/finish that has a rubberised feel to it. This product has always appeared to me to be spot on for a tactical stock finish.

    I've done mine Indian rosewood and the colour is great I just need to oil it again. You'll need to go over the stock with the old nitromorse to remove the plastic varnish and as unclebob mentioned the stock is very powdery when sanded.

    Krylon do a rubberized finish paint, it may be worth looking on their site just tinsel what is available

    (I would upload photos of my stock but browser is taking years to respond to the upload thing)
