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.

    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.'

  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 Mossy Oak Cometa 300 Stock Refurb

    So I brought a spare stock from my local Gun Shop that they had up for sale for £10 so I thought I might as well buy it in case I ever needed a spare.
    2 days later I saw another Cometa 300-S up for sale on the internet that was local to me for £50 so I went and had a look at it, I decided on buying it even though it had a horrible Mossy Oak stock.
    I got it home and replaced the stock with the spare one that I brought from the gun shop and the Mossy Oak one has been left at the bottom of my gun cupboard ever since until today

    I decided given the amount of threads appearing on the forum recently to refurbish the stock;

    Off down the hardware shop I went and got myself some 150 and 100 Grit sandpaper, some wet and dry and some Colron Danish Oil in Georgian Medium Oak :)
    I started to sand by hand and It was taking forever and a day, here was my progress after an hour;
    [​IMG]

    I was getting really bored and just wanted it done already so I broke out the Orbital Sander with some 150 grit 125mm discs which made light work of ripping the stock back to bare wood, I then cleaned it off and started to apply the Danish Oil, it was going on patchy at first but I soon realised that it was just where the wood was more "thirsty" lol

    Here's a pic so far as it got dark this evening, it has 4 proper coats on so far and I'm really happy with the colour :)

    I'm going to crack on with it again in the morning adding more Danish Oil every hour and allowing it to dry

    One question though, how do I get the stock to have a nice glossy finish when I'm done?

    Thanks for reading :)

    Keep the Danish oil going on mate. It will start to shine the more coats you put on, I have had to stop on my HW as its getting to a point where it could become a problem out hunting if it gets any more shiny!

    Might have been worth applying a 'grain sealer' before the oil went on...less coats are then needed to develope the 'sheen'.

    I think I'm up to around 16 or so on my 90 mate. :)

    Grain sealer, never used it but think I will try some on the stock I'm building next! ;)
