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.

    Thanks for your thoughts lads, appreciate it.

    Price really depends on what rifle it's for. I only own AA 400's and a TX, so if it's for anything else I need the rifle to inlet and fit the stock properly.

    I do them for the AA 400 range for around £200 depending on what you want.

    I've only ever done one springer which was a TX. There's a lot more work in a springer due to the inletting. I'd hate to commit myself without seeing what work it entailed........the downside of not owning a large collection of air guns:(

    I am thinking of having a go I have a AA S400 Classic, R/H in Beech, bought it new a fortnight ago, I am trying to shoot right handed lol, I think I will have more chance making a stock than mastering the art of right hand shooting, even though I am right handed, So off looking for some nice Walnut maybe Burr if I can find some at the right price. Beautiful job you have done with yours, if my project goes all tits up, the cheque will be on its way to you Geordie for a lefty lol.

    If I could lay my hands on burr walnut I'd be a very happy man!

    Can't help with that I'm afraid. Good luck with the project though......thanks;)

    your not wrong there mate. the tannins in the oak will actually promote rust as it reacts with the metals and creates a weak acid and thats when the rust will start. it will basically eat any steel parts it comes into contact with. even blued steel. its why oak houses use wooden dowels rather than nails.
    the other negative is that its heavy... oak is about as dense as wood can get. a 30 inch stock would weigh more than 2 kilos if its a hft design.

    I don't think he needs any practice mate. Looked to me like he's got it down to a fine art.
    Outstanding work there mate.
