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.

    Am amazed that no one in uk is making pistol grips. I'm after some fine wood for my crosman 2240. It's a work in progress that's ground to a halt as I can't find any decent grips to put on it. The people in the states either don't make them any more or don't send to uk, surely there is a gap in the market for some fine woodworker?? Sort of grips I'm after are in images below. Anyone up to the task?

    gmac are the only ones really who do custom grips in real wood ian does some very nice ones in laminate and his work is very good
    you do see some on e bay but making grips is a time consuming job(i've made a couple of pairs as most aftermarket grips don't fit my hand) and i imagine people won't want to pay the asking price

    for the uk i am afraid your only options are gmac who do have some very nice grips or Ian who makes some lovely laminate grips available in all colours
    most stateside sellers as you have discovered have either gone out of business or will not ship to the uk anymore
    have you tried steve corcoran?
    i was lucky and got a pair of hell grips and fore end before they ceased trading and most certaily will not sell them:D

    those hell grips sure are nice and the corcoran stocks and grips are probably the best available i've a corcoran 2250 stock and it's something i'll not sell
    why not try making some then the pistol will truely be custom to your hand, these are some i've made the ones on my pistol are labernum but still need trimming to fit the frame properly(currently sat in a box till i'm in the right mind frame to finish them)the king ratty has some made from an old indian stone crate and the yew ones are a pair that i rebated to fit the frame but ian did the finish work and really did a top job (i made the foregrip)

    My uncle crafted these based on a Steve Corcoran design.. 1459993_10200675541201868_1281662796_n-1.jpg 1450732_10200675541881885_441560994_n.jpg
    I could ask him if he fancys a project in the new year on your behalf if this is a style you would be interested in? But as Gary has said Rick ships or at least used to ship to the UK and his work is top drawer.. :)

    Email I received recently from Rick
    "Hi,
    Right now I have been away from making grips, due to needs of my overtime work from my day job. I hope that one day, I can get back to my passion of making cool grips.

    Thanks,
    Rick

    Your uncle has done a great job there, they are just what I'd like too. I'm sure he could easily sell if he wanted to make .

    Aye up Tim, thanks for the recommendation bud.

    I might start making grips to order in the future. Only made one or two pairs at the minute but I'll be dabbling some more shortly;)

    Few pics of the ones I just made for a mates 45.
