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.

    '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.'

  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.

    BKL offer silver mounts if you're sure that's what you want. Have a look on ebay, uttings, optics warehouse etc.

    If you want some to try out first without shelling out £35-£50 have a look at ant-supplies as they're normaly less than a tenner.

    Hi WhyteCat,
    What size scope tube, and mount height ?
    It was 'Lil old me' who did the removal of anodising with the caustic soda solution method,
    A bit time consuming, but turned out how I wanted, and no guarantee that you will find the silver finish in the size you want ?
    Anyhoo, here are some piccies for you.
    Pic 1) BKLs 1" medium.anodised original silver
    Pic 2&3) Sports match 30mm medium (originally black) and now stripped
    Pic 4) Blueprint 1" medium. anodised original silver
    Pic 5) Sportsmatch 1" Low (originally black) and now stripped
    Pics 6&7) BKLs back in their box again.
    Hope this helps,
    Atbfn Greyskull

    Thanks all so far, these will be for an AA S400 9-11mm dovetail - medium height - 30mm tube .

    had a look at the BKL site and expected a range of options but no ?! which surprised me a bit :confused:

    Hi WhiteCat,
    Just had a read of another of your threads, and am I correct that these mounts are for a 44mm objective scope ?
    If this is the case, you are welcome to the pair of Sportsmatch I pictured earlier. (Pics 2&3)
    P.m. Me with your address if you want them and I'll stick em in the post for you.
    No recoil pin I'm afraid, but you shouldn't need for Pcp S400.
    Atbfn Greyskull

    Ooooh stop it, you're making me blush :D:D:D

    Here you go WhiteCat,
    Here's a pic for you of Viper on my S410, with 44mm objective, plenty of clearance, specially as you don't have magazine clearance to worry about :thumb:
    Hope this helps

    Aww thanks greyskull, may I take you up on your offer :) - I have just had my stock cheek piece done by nobby & I can now bring the scope up to give me a bit more room to load the pellet. The turrets on the 4-16x44 Compact Airmax are rather protruding & it has been a bit awkward on the loading & your offer is really appreciated.

    most kind of you. I will Pm you.

    Go direct to Sportsmatch.
    They will almost certainly supply you with the mount of your choice before its been anodised.
