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.

    That looks great mate. Did you have to rub it down or was it just case of rubbing oil into it

    I can see that my HW100 stock has got a lovely grain in it and would like to bring to out

    Gorgeous bit of wood and a tidy job there mate.:up::up::up:

    Too shiny for my taste though. Not a big fan of Truoil

    Fair play though, each to their own.;):)

    hi there at the moment its only 4 days old and very shiny and I am still undecided on the finish it will dull down with use over time or use birchwood casy stock sheen conditioner but I am unsure of the finish and don't want to rush into anything and have to start again 4 weeks was a long time without my 100.:confused:

    I think I'd have to get a cheap replacement stock so I could still use my 100.
    I love my Scorpion but nothing touches the 100

    I used Truoil a while back when I went through my "Shiny" phase:p. It does give a high sheen that highlights the wood, but I found it very difficult to maintain on a working gun. I ended up with dull bits every where there is contact with the stock.

    I've no idea what another oil/conditioner will do to keep it looking uniform. I use CCL now as it gives a nice finish that can be maintained a bit easier than Truoil can in my experience. I'm no expert when it comes to oils though, I just use what works best for me.

    That is one lovely piece of timber though......lucky you:)

    thanks for your help and advice I am a complete novice when it comes to wood and am learning as I go along ,from what I can make out the bc stock sheen is made to go over tru oil after a week or so to let the tru oil cure first to give a silk sheen finish but I am worried that I may loose some of the detail of the wood I would have to see some stocks finished with it first does any one have any photos or info on this product ?

    lovely grain on the stock but ya ruined it with crappy true oil, that stuff is just watered down varnish, as steve said " i prefer the matt/satin look over the gloss finish, but thats my preference" and i agree, danish oil all the way for me

    Does anyone have any experiance with the stock sheen and conditioner that you can put over tru oil ?? I have tried walnut oil and danish oil but everytime I waxed or cleaned the stock it kept getting darker and i was loosing the grain so this is the reason for sealing the stock with tru oil to stop this happening I am not to sure about the gloss myself yet but the grain is now sealed in I could do with some info or pics on the bc stock sheen before attempting it?or seeing if I like the finish ? Everyone keeps saying they prefer a satin finish so show me some pics please !
