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.

My Daystate Mk3 reborn.

    I have had my Mk3 for about seven months now and although i loved it, it just wasn't right, didn't feel right, you know when you just get one of those feelings and can't put your finger on it.
    So what to do, first thing was to change the stock and looked at getting a MK3/4 sports for it but couldn't find a swap anywhere, so i got the tools out and chopped my thumb-hole down and made it into a sports style stock, it now felt and in my opinion looked so much better, but it wasn't a proper sports stock.
    Then along comes APW a member on here and offers me a sports stock that i can have now and pay for later as i have been off work for a couple of months.
    So i now have a sports stock, did a little fettleing and made it as smooth as a babies bum plus a couple of coats of oil and i have just what i wanted, a nice handling/feeling rifle.
    However something still didn't feel right, the air cylinder had a little rust on it and i wanted it gone, so off to see my local gunsmith (gantongunner) stripped it down and left it with him to re-blue, that's when the problem arose that the cylinder is made from nickle chrome and is a bitch to blue, not happy with the finish i took it and got it powder coated a nice gloss black to match the breech. So time to rebuild it all, after a couple of problems with using old o rings we added new ones so its now had a full re-furb.
    I then got another scope for it a nice Hawke Varmint SF and zeroed it in this morning.
    I am now the very happy owner of a rifle that fits me and feels so right. Many thanks to APW and gantongunner, i love this gun.:D

    Nice to hear it feels like your own rifle now Ken :up:
    It`s great when that happens as sometimes you just can`t gel with a rifle no matter what you try

    Really nice job, I hope I don't offend anyone when I say I'm not a big fan of customised guns which have gone too far, but this is spot on, just the right mixture to refresh an older model into what to me looks like a new gun - great.

    Thanks for the comments, its funny how sometimes things just don't feel right and your not sure why, so its down to trial and error and a bit of advice from other members(you know who you are:up:) that gets you there in the end.

    Loved the Mk3 but got the chance of a good deal on a Mk4, it has a dubious past but with a little tlc it knows its loved again.

    I also loved the Mk3.

    If I were to go back to electric, I wouldn't entertain a mk4 when you can get the best of the Mk3 wearing Gary cane walnut and blued barrels for half the price.

    I would never say never again as, although mine did eventually die on me, it still was the most accurate airgun Ive ever shot by a fair bit it was owned by a HFT champion before me so if it was good enough for him it was for me, I was astonished the first time I shot a 35yrd group with the gun and after a full mag the hole was no bigger than a pea.

    Well done on the rifle mate enjoy it.
