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.

    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.'

    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.

    Thought I'd post a couple of pics of my meagre 'collection', though they've probably been on here in various posts at some point in the past.

    First up, my beloved S400 carbine.
    .177
    Walnut stock
    Rowan multi shot
    Rowan Trigger
    Barrel shrouded in carbon fibre tube.
    Rowan barrel band
    Huggett moderator
    Polished original trigger guard
    Polished, later fluted style bolt handle
    MTC Mamba 3-12 x 44 scope

    Bought the gun bog standard, second hand, as my intro to airguns. Found out it was only doing 8ftlb so learnt quickly to strip, reseal and rebuild. Then started to turn it into what I have today. Also has a Rowan stripper and an AA moderator that I've mirror polished and wrapped in carbon effect vinyl.

    image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

    Next up, my .22 BSA Supersport. Bought second hand off here when I was looking for a cheap springer to strip, learn about, and restore. Came with a Bonnie and Clyde tuning kit fitted, but cosmetically poor, and with a hammerited barrel and action. Nice quick and easy refurb, and picked up a cheap scope off the forum too, to finish it off. All the metalwork was stripped and cold-blued. Stock was stripped, stained, and danish oiled. Treated it to a totally unnecessary Matt moderator too just for the hell of it.

    image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

    Finally I needed a pistol, so not wishing to spend too much, and as you can see I like tinkering, I found one for sale. Nickel CP88, non-functioning for £50. Read a few guides, stripped it down and ordered a new hammer spring (stretched), trigger bar (broken), and ball bearings (missing). Replaced seal and voila, perfect functioning pistol for not much outlay. Cosmetically it's unmarked, looks like new. Came with a 'silencer' or more correctly 'loudener' as it's just a hollow tube.
    Picked up some stainless allen headed screws for a bit of bling too.

    Nothing that many of you won't have seen before I'm sure, but I love each of them, particularly as each has enough work put into them to make them uniquely mine.

    Thanks. It's stained first in a mix of American walnut and dark oak, then three or four coats of danish oil IIRC. Could probably do with a few more to be honest.

    Certainly do. Had one on my christmas list, but then one popped up second hand. £60 delivered I think. Was well pleased. Wife wasn't as she'd planned on buying it for me!
