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.

  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. No longer allowed 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- We now do not allow political and religion threads anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section) unless Airgun related and they must be put in the Airgun related politics section..

    Staff will not move posts for you if you put it in the wrong section – it will simply be deleted. You will then have to type it all out again and put it in the right place, so heed this warning.

    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.

    Well i realy dont know what i was wittering on about yesterday. I think it was because the day herang me to tell me it was on its way, in responce to my asking what it was like he said its got some fiddleback on both sides. I think he was confusing my stock with some other because theris no fiddleback but its beautifuly grained but anything would be an anti climax after the one
    Dr b has just aquired. Here it is as received from CS. 20190317_071634.jpg 20190317_071627.jpg 20190317_071612.jpg 20190317_071556.jpg

    Thats a nice bit of wood Pete with some decent figuring and better than many CS stocks I've seen.

    Its always a bit of a gamble. They'll buy blanks in bulk and will "hand select" when better grain is specified, but unlikely to be exhibition grade.
    CS won't be buying exhibition grade blanks.

    That will look lovely when its had a bit more Danish on it

    Yes i am pleased with it. I had it made without any chequering at all as i wanted to see the wood without anything getting in the way. I know most will not agree with this and fine chequereing is the normal thing to find on a stock but I like it and I certainly dont think it makes any difference to a bench rester such as myself. The grip is fine. I normaly get rid of the butt pad but this time i am leaving it on for the time being as i just cant be arsed. I dont think I am going to start the oiling today as my pal in the next Caravan are going to St Kevern for Sunday lunch. When I start I will put pics on after say every 6 coats of Danish. I may start today as its pXXXXXg down outside. Lunch will get in the way but i should get 9 or 10 coats of oil on today. I may do it.

    Pete,

    Very nice :)

    While I really, really like my TX200s CS800 stock, most beech stocks would shame it for grain :)

    Have fun & a good Sunday :)

    Best regards

    Russ

    Very true! Like I said previously I paid extra for nice walnut... It landed, I called them and told them it was a bland piece, I was then told that they can't even guarantee a nice piece even when I payed extra?? .. So why am I paying extra for a nice piece of nice walnut then?
    It went straight back to them for a refund
    And I will not use them again
