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.

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.

    A couple of weeks ago I posted a question here about Matt's Stocks.

    I just wanted to thank everyone for their reassurances, information and advice.

    Also I wanted to advise that I have now taken delivery of Matt's first model of an EV2 MK4 stock - and its a beauty! :D

    Exactly what I wanted, worth every penny and well worth the wait.

    Image attached - Thanks Matt!!

    Cheers all,

    John

    A work of art,to be sure,but does anyone else think there's twice as much wood as metal..not this stock especially, but stocks of this style in general. Saw one a a Regal, surely it subtracts from what such a gun is all about. Heavy too,I'm guessing....just saying..IMO

    Hiya Longy,

    I actually thought exactly the same way when I first noticed this style of stock. Fortunately (IMO) I changed my view rather quickly!

    They're comfortable in use and mine is not noticeably heavier than the original laminate EV2 stock. Don't forget that the EV2 and all other FT/target guns are simply about accuracy and consistency rather than the hunting rifle which is about weight and pointabilty.

    I cant imagine these stock designs would be selling so well, from all the custom stock-makers, if they subtracted from the gun's performance, balance, behaviour or weight characteristics.

    Good point though and one others may well have differing opinions on.

    Regards,

    John
