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.

    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.

    Keep seeing everyone saying use nitromors to strip the finish off stocks but I find it useless and end up having to sand it down. Tried it on a meteor and now on a webley same result.

    How liberally? How long did you leave it on?
    Did you wait 10 mins then agitate it all with a stiff brush and add more if needed and then wait another 10 mins?

    Must admit new stuff is like white cream and not as quick as the old stuff that looked like wallpaper paste, recomends leaving on an hour then another coat and then another hour, wont buy any more.
    Try making up some wallpaper paste and add some caustic soda crystals.........but SAFETY WARNING...Dont breath fumes in and wear gloves and goggles !.........i used to do this sometimes and do old furniture with it :up:

    Nitromors comes in two types - paint and varnish remover and plain paint remover, which won't take varnish off.

    Sanding's a pain in the backside because it doesn't lift the old finish from the grain of the wood.

    They’ve changed the stuff, under law I think- you could try Screwfix; builders solvent- can’t say it will work but it is powerful stuff.

    Ah, I see - you used to be able to burn yourself with Nitromors... nostalgia ain't what it used to be, eh? Glad I've got a can or two of the real stuff then.

    400 grit wet and dry, takes ages but doesn't remove to much unnecessary material.

    You need the starchem brand paint stripper used in car body shops. Supposedly it's the same composition as nitromours used to be before it went all soft.

    Paint it on thick then wrap in cling film so it's airtight and the stripper can't evaporate.
    Leave it a while and it should lift the paint and be easier to scrape off.

    a hot caustic bath will strip a stock in no time,

    DO NOT breath in the fumes.

    Have to agree that the new nitromors stuff does not seem as good as the old, I followed the instructions to the letter and it still took 3 coats to get my stock down to a level where it was easy to sand. As a previous post said it used to burn like hell even if you only got a tiny drop on your skin!

    You can still burn yourself with it but it isn’t the same as it used to be (and as others have said there are two different types). When I work with wood I use the solvent or caustic soda, at the same time I have no experience of restoring guns so don’t place too much value on my opinion.
