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. 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.

    Fitted a new set of grips to the Colt SAA today that I got from Shadowfax. They are made of resin and I quite like them but unfortunately let down by the poor fitting left side which you can see from the picture. I’ve emailed them the same.

    How the heck could they get the measurements so wrong? Nice looking though.

    Shame about the fit as they look rather nice, please keep us all informed of how you get on with 'Shadowfax' by way of this thread. It would be nice to know how they remedy this error on their part.

    If they are gents about replacing it then I may well have to get a couple of pairs for my Colts, as I do love the medallions on the grips.

    Their comms is very good and I have been offered a no quibble full refund. I want to keep them and asked if and when they correct the measurement and mould that I just get a left grip replacement.

    Hello David, not sure what's going on with that left grip, here's mine from the same mould. I'll have a look at my master patterns and see if I can make a new mould to eradicate any casting variances, happy to send a replacement to you in due course.

    All the best, Marlon

    Injection pressure prob, jets blocked, heat not correct?, that's if they are ejection moulded.

    They look the dogs - just emailed them to place an order, but requested a qc check before sending.
    Must admit the oem's are a bit thin and plasticky.
    I pressed blu tack into mine to make them feel a bit less so. I also noticed that the gun sounds less "tinny" when you cock it.

    Because they are almost exact replicas of some real western period grips. A tad more realistic than some transfer fake wood...............:rolleyes::D:D:p
