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:


    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.

    I got a beat up old Tx off this forum a good 18 month maybe 2 years ago off here. I had been left in a garage for a good few year forgotten about then at some point painted black.

    Anyway I got the gun for £100 apart from the cosmetic issues there wasnt very much else wrong with it apart from the saftey but that was a quick enough fix so i started to try and bring it back to life.
    I would have a bit of a play with it now and then and then forget about it for a few months but eventually i got round to finishing it off with a little help from Colin malloy.

    This is the gun how I got it.

    After stripping the paint of the action and a bit of wire wooling it unearthed a whole lot more pitting than on first impressions.

    I then decided to have a go at the stock this wasnt in that bad nic but with it being beech and it having several coats of stain that was mission impossible to get all of it out.

    I was just scrolling through the forum one day when i spotted a post that someone wanted to swap a mk2 stock for a mk3. I didnt fancy my chances but thought i'd ask the question anyway.
    He said he had been looking for a mk2 stock for ages and he wasnt bothered about the condition as it was for a project anyway. so I couldnt belive my luck when a brand new mk3 stock arrived on my door step free of charge only having to pay for the couriers fee to post my old mk2 stock. Happy days.

    I had a go at the metal work myself but it was too much for me it needed doing by a pro so I gave it to Colin Malloy who used to be at Manchester airguns im sure some of you with have heard about him.
    I picked the metal parts up on saturday and he told me I have won the prize for roughest gun of the year. woo hoo.
    The results are amazing it looks like a totally new gun now.


    Just a few things left to do like the bear trap clip as thats aluminium so will need to be sprayed/powder coated and a few new stock screws as the mk3 ones dont sit flush but overall i'm very happy with it. :D
