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.

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.

    Use very small amounts and rub it in by hand with your palm.
    Leave 24 hours then repeat until happy.

    One is for cooking one is for gun stocks. In practice it might not matter but I did read the Tesco stuff is not good for the pores of the stock. Ccl is another good option.

    There are lots of different oils out there and they all give slightly different effects.
    I did use a standard oil on a stock once and it came out fine, But it was not Tesco's so I cant comment on that one.

    Proper walnut oil contains oils resins the wood needs, walnut cooking oil is made from nuts and dries out quickly, proper oil only cost a few pounds more and will last ages as a little goes a long way.

    +1 with that.
    I used Philips walnut oil on my Rapid stock last weekend.
    I literally only used a few drops in the palm of my hand & it covered the entire stock.
    Bloody good stuff.

    Cheers

    Depends on what finish you want really.

    Ive used birchwood casey, teng and a few others and had good results with all.

    Best finish i had was with the birchwood casey, really brings out the grain.

    Use CCL oil. Buy the kit and comes with cleaning cream, oil and hardener and it goes a long way. I'm on my 4th stock using same set and not even half way through any of the bottles. A little goes a really long way and rub it in hard with your hands. Heat helps the grain of the wood open u and oil soak in more. Really amazing results.

    Soak in oil then bury it 12" below ground and in 18 mths you'll have your own nuts.

    Do you have a finish in mind? Do you want it a mat finish or a soft sheen or even gloss? Different oil will leave a different final finish.

    Well, to be honest I want a finish that can easily be touched up if I scratch or dent the stock. For example if I have to sand a pard of the stock and then reapply the oil. That is why I haven't chosen a varnish. I'm not too fussed about the finish although a oil which brings the grain out would be good. Also the previous owner used walnut oil on the stock hence why I was going to do so. Whould it be fine to use a different oil? Thanks for the help

    It should be ok to use a different oil to re-finish the stock. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong. I hate gloss finish so I use colron Danish oil on three stocks with no issues. Touch up is easy.

    hi mate I would use tung oil which will bring out the grain but not darken the stock or ccl oil which will give you a satin finish but slightly redish I don't like walnut oil (to dark)or Danish stokie99

    I've used CCL on both of my walnut stocks and they came up really nicely. As suggested, I heated the oil in a bowl of hot water from the kettle, then rubbed it in by hand. Walnut Oil from Tescos is edible and not fit for wood or any type of finish.... Ok, price wise, tescos oil is £1.99, CCL is £8.00 they are each made for a job. Like I would not use CCL oil on a salad, don't use the salad oil on a stock...:):up:

    So how would the ccl and the Phillips walnut oil compare? What is the difference between the finishes? For the ccl is the conditioner the actual Oil? Cheers
