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.

  4. PLEASE READ
    You are breaking the forum rules if there is no comment on a sales or wanted thread by either the buyer or seller. 
    Or regarding to members manufacturing things stating something is going to be discussed and initiated through pm.
    I.e. 
    A buyer in manufactured section hi I’m interested in some work by you pm incoming.
    Or seller in a wanted add, hi I can do that for you pm incoming regarding it.
    Or a normal sale, hi I want to buy your item
    If a manufacturer gets asked privately about a sale they should say to the prospective buyer please comment on my thread to adhere to forum rules.

  6. 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.

    Just collected some revamped grips for my Mk VI. Well pleased with these and they are a change from the standard black grips. They are the original grips but hydro dipped by a business near me. Send me a PM if you want more info as I'm not sure about the rules re advertising.

    Hello David,
    After searching for replacement wood grips without any success, it was your pictures that inspired me to google search in my area for businesses that did this. Luckily, I found one that was only a short drive away from me, so I could drop them off and pick them up again a week later. You can post stuff to him and get it posted back but I was lucky to be able to see and pick the film I wanted.
    Whilst refitting the grips, I added a bit of weight by padding the grips/frame out with a bit of blue tac. Another one of your ideas I think and a great tip.
    I think if someone sold walnut grips I might have given them a try but I couldn't find any. I've adapted a couple of different sets of walnut grips to fit my Umarex Colt 1911 but I imagine that the little top locating tab on the left hand grip of the Webley probably makes it near impossible to do anything in real wood.

    Such a fine built, solid pistol and looks so much nicer with the 'wood' grips.

    I have deliberated long and hard over my first revolver choice and the Webley has been up there in the short list against the Dan Wesson 715, S&W 586 and now the new kid on the block and yet to be available, S&W M29. I can't also escape the excellent options of the Colt SAA and Schofield revolvers. Unfortunately my pocket will never match my heart when it comes to making a new purchase :(. This is especially frustrating as I have developed quite an addiction to replica air pistols :D.

    This may help in your deliberations I hope.

    Best grips, IMO, in order

    1. S&W 586/686 Rubber with concealed Co2 piercing, hinged pressure plate5.
    2. Dan Wesson 715 Rubber with exposed Co2 piercing, socket head screw
    3. Schofield Plastic wood effect on aged version with exposed Co2 piercing, socket head screw
    4. Colt SAA Plastic wood effect, a bit too shiny IMO, with exposed Co2 piercing, socket head screw
    5. S&W M29 Plastic wood effect grips, with exposed Co2 piercing, socket head screw

    I have a Umarex Colt SAA in antique finish, it looks the part - apart from the grips, all new and shiny.. To dull them down to be more in fitting with the antique look I lightly rubbed them all over with steel wool until I achieved the desired 'used' look..

    Before and after..

    I ordered a pair of grips from Tiger111 in Hong Kong for my Webley, actually worked out cheaper, with shipping, than having my originals Hydro Dipped !
    The workmanship is very good and comes with all the replacement fitting screws to transfer the CO2 capsule clip.
    No fettling is required as they are a direct swap..

    I like them. They transform the MK6 in my opinion.
