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.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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.

Its So Ugly, I Made My Own Stock!

    Been looking for a small prodject for a while and found a Brocock Atomic pistol on the web. The workings of it were in excellent condition but the wood work was shocking. But the advert was honest and stated this fact the seller has tried to strip it and refinish it, but had not gone the way he planed.
    [​IMG]
    So it arrived last week and I've had great fun shooting cans, mud and sheep poo! Although the plan was to re do the wood work, the feel and the ballance were not to my taste. After a night searching for a better stock and coming up short I decided to make my own.

    My plan was to use a piece of red hard wood before using the walnut I've in my unit. Started with the blank and using the router cut the channeling for the action and trigger gaurd. Making sure all fitted before continuing. Used the origonal stock as a basic template.

    Had an idea in my head of the look I wanted and just worked it into the wood. Every cut I did was mirrored on the opposite side. Did what I could with the machines before getting down to hand finishing. As I shoot a pistol left handed it made sence to fit my hand instead of a one rip fits all.
    [​IMG]

    The fitting, making it comfortable to hold was the hardest part and the most time consuming. In and out the vice, hand here and there, But got there in it end :up:.

    I know it's not the most eye popping piece of wood but I'm very happy with the result. It's given me a well balanced and asceticly pleasing pistol that was otherwise ugly.

    Bit too angle and squared up for me but definitely a nice target oriented stock!

    I can see the potential a longer blank would allow - nice full stock on that and you'd have a cracker of a close range vermin setup.

    I'd keep working on it, the grip looks good and with a bit of work the rest could blend in pretty well.

    Don't get me wrong I'm very happy, but yes may need a little fettle here and there.

    The big BUT is I'm scared to do any more in case I xxxx it up. It's a case of do I have the balls to shave a bit more off. So I'm going to leave it a while to decided where to go with it.

    Still chuffed!
