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.

My monster TSS, grips/sets i've made

    Hi all, new here so i thought i'd post a pic of my rig first. The specs on it are with a 18" barrel in .22 she puts out 54fpe with a 36g lead. Not a whole lot is factory anymore maybe half. Custom Valve from Blodnob, Custom trigger arm/blade and cocking arm by Skybones, Custom built adjustable buttplate by WOK, Wood grip by myself more pics below of the others i've done. I'm told these are junk:rolleyes:, but i like them:D. Barrel bushing (front) is vented along with the frame to help decompress the back pressure when fireing. The shroud and end cap are mine as well. Baffles are felt spacers and hardware cloth (1/4" wire mesh) rolled on a rod, 1" and 1.5"L and slid down the tube. Does a excellant job of quieting things, even with Kodiaks at 1000+fps. The wire mesh acts much like the hair curlers with a sound absorbing material wrapped around them. But at 50+fpe i needed something more robust then plastic. This is a great alternative. Hope you guys enjoy.

    Pre fit and finish, mahogany w/ Cocobolo caps and insert, if you'll take note on all my foregrips i've eliminated the basic metal trigger guard and opened the area up by carefully developing my own guard. Inspired by the Rapid stocks i saw, i learned how to inlett so i could discard the trigger bar and still use the flat mechanism bar to keep all the trigger components secure. Its a cleaner look i believe.

    After a number of coats of Teak oil:

    Some more of my first foregrips made, I was still incorporating the trigger bar in these:

    This is where it all takes place, short of my 4x36 belt and 9" disc sanding station its all here. Finishing takes place upstairs where the temps are warmer and the air not so dust filled. I have some more to add as they dry both sets i'm working on now are target style grips Walnut/Coco (oiled & clearcoat) and Poplar/walnut (bedliner and 14 clearcoat)
    Pics maybe later today have a bunch i should update. Let me know what you think.
