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.

    If I were you I'd hand the job over to someone else. Painting...just like shooting, requires huge amounts of patience to get it right, by this comment it would appear you have none.

    If the time of your original posting is correct at 01.58 GMT, most of the people on this forum would have been fast asleep...or at least doing things more important to them than being here and then 2 hours later you post this comment, when they are even more likely to still be asleep.

    Even if the reported times aren't correct, 2 hours to expect a reply is still a bit ambitious.

    Now if you want to hang around until a reasonable hour I'm sure you'll get more replies.....but after your last comment, don't be surprised if they aren't about telling you how to paint your stock.

    Happy New Year BTW.

    well in my experience car body underseal makes a good job of it
    but its best applied when thinned down with 3 in 1 oil, and spread evenly with a wire brush its also best done about 3 in the morning
    as the paint seams to cure better , hope this info is some good to you.:D

    thats a big no no on walnut steve, for the best results use creasote
    mixed with three parts iron filings, and dont forget to wear fur mittens
    and st and on one leg, its also best applied when theres a full moon.

    any more advice please ask.;)

    is it varnished or something like that?

    get some varnish remover and get it out then use a black wood paint of some sort

    I've found the guys to be very helpful on this forum in the recent past.:): Sorted my air bottle problem of supply, and also that real niggle I had with the pellets clipping the silencer. Matt black aerosol as per a car bumper, with the right prep to get the old finish off first.

    Must be honest, I reckon the ABS plastic on the Verminator is fine for me as a factory finish, and the wooden stocks I've got, I'll keep as a wood finish.:):

    If the old finish on the stock is actually varnish like the guys have said, then sanding and or remover may well work ok, but if the original finish is any sort of oil then I'm affraid you're on to a looser as regards painting it black. There is however another solution and that would be to get the stock back to bare wood and re-stain it with an ebony stain. It won't give you the sort of matt black finish you'd get with paint, but it will darken the stock to a similar level. If you do sand it, make sure you ONLY sand WITH the grain NOT across it.

    making one?

    ok err find money and go to a gun shop and buy one?

    i have no idea how to go about making one but it works by letting the pressure in the barrel escape before the pellet comes out the end.

    my silenser is a tube with a spring and a few washers.

    so do that i guess.

    good luck

    I know about the tube with washers/baffles but the thing thats baffling me is the spring. What's it do?

    lets the washers move to absorb the muzzle blast.

    what they do it restrict the blast and let it all spread out and loose all its energy in the silenser but all the original energy is still in the pellet

    I have it sanded down as to remove the shine, with a bit of P80, a bit rough but im used to it!

    I was inspecting the original chinese finish and it seemed as if it was layed on with a paint brush. nasty-ness....
