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.

    '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.'

  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.

    Hi guys, stupid question time, I have applied for mod on my ticket for a .22lr which has been granted. Now, the question is, I already have a capable mod that will work on a rimfire that I have been using on one of my air rifles so can I just use this one (it has no serial number etc) or do I have to buy one with a serial number on to satisfy the FEO?

    depends on the force, if you place an air rifle mod on ticket then it can never go back and has to be secured in line with firearms policy etc

    You will have to speak with your FEO as they would normally expect notification from the seller as well as you

    i have never had a moderator with a serial number.
    the moderator (whether it`s that one or one you buy) needs to be on your ticket before you use it or you are breaking the terms of your FAC.

    So if it's one I already own, I just have to tell them I have it and am using it? If I sell the rifle on, I can just transfer the mod onto the new rifle?

    To be honest mate I'd just buy the cheapest Parker hale and have it on your ticket, then use what you want.
    If you ring up the Firearms licensing office they'll no doubt get their doctors receptionist head on and have to refer you to the highest ranking officer they can find ( I got Sir Bernard Howe last time I wanted a variation) ...Who'll tell you NO! Because he doesn't know the correct answer and the man that does is on annual leave again for the third time in six months.... :)

    Pretty much the same as above,
    Theres no real way of proving because the only thing different on my real mods is a proof mark compared to the normal ones, but if you got caught it would probably end in a shitstorm of losing your ticket etc.

    The only way they would catch you is if they inspected your cabinet and there was more mods in there than on your ticket all with powder residue or similar bad luck.

    In reality there shouldn't be any issue but considering its firearms and the law/media love to be difficult its certainly not worth the risk

    I bought a sak, will put that on my ticket. Have still got the air gun and they are in a different cupboard. I only keep the mod that is on the rifle with the rifle if you know what I mean.

    Problem was the sak was crap, clipped badly and has been replaced with a new one, but I don't know if I trust it.
