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.

  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.

    Ever since getting my MK3 i have had a little niggle with the varnish finish on the stock which had a couple of scratches and dents in it, so took the plunge after reading lots of posts about oiling stocks and went ahead and stripped it. Used B&Q's own make remover as several comments on here said Nitro-mores was not as good as it used to be, left the stripper on for an hour and then used a scouring pad and warm soapy water to wash it off, worked a treat.
    Next a lot of rubbing down with 1200 wet n dry to remove scratches etc.
    Then the first coat of Danish oil, can't believe the difference after just one coat.

    So looking forward to adding a few more coats to see just how good it will look.:D

    I agree about Nitromors, it's nothing like as good as it used to be, B&Q Diall stripper is as good as any and a lot cheaper. For real stripping power you need stuff called Paramose, it's only available to the trade and a written declaration stating that it will only be used in the workshop is required. How easy is it to get hold of? Quite simple if you're in the trade, or don't mind lying about it:rolleyes::)

    Just used the oil, no stain as the stock is already a dark colour so wanted a light oil. Can't answer the bit about Beech stocks as this is the first time I have ever done one.

    What do you class as really nice oil? The Danish oil is giving me a great look after several coats and makes the grain stand out just as I wanted.
