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.

    'Behaviour

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.

    That's got to be one of the best condition Hw35's I've seen in a long time. Who ever buys this is getting a treat.

    looks lovely. Good work pal. I wonder how many beautiful guns are being left to die with no use and people just don't know that they have the opportunity to give them to me!

    Hi GP


    How did you remove the rust from the barrel, very fine wire wool and oil?

    Here's a mod 50 that was absolutely covered in rust, I couldn't believe the difference after the wire wool and oil!!

    It's the one on the left..

    There are still marks on the metawork but it's heaps better than it was :up:


    Cheers, John :)

    thats just how i did it john, these old collectable rifles unless they are badly pitted / bluing gone then all thats needed is a fine wirewolling and oil, small marks are just charcter, tho you can after a good rub over using this method add some gun-blue to cotten wool and rub over the barrel just to hide the marks a bit better, then again with wirewool, wipe over with soft cloth and oil

    perhaps an old air rifle / pistol section would be good
