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.

  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.

    As already mentioned, if it's walnut the only thing you should put near it is oil, walnut stocks are a thing of beauty - I did my stock because...

    A. I was bored
    B. because the original finish has loads of marks on it - and it was beech
    C. because I could

    :)

    If you want.....paint it.

    Let's be honest lads there's walnut and walnut. I've seen plenty of nice and very nice walnut on air to nitro guns and there's is plenty of very plain even ***p walnut on rifles. To the point that paint would make it look better.

    Wouldn't do it myself, but it's your gun so nobody's business but your own. Paint it ifyou like.

    Dipping might be a harder wearing option though, or why not a vinyl wrapping, that way you can always take it off if you fancy a change later.

    I agree, it's his rifle and he can do what the hell he wants with it. C an it be any worse then putting camo tape all over a nice walnut stock, andthere aere a lot of people do that, good luck and atb.

    I've got a few HW100 stocks, and as said some walnut is very drab, i have a thumb hole stock that wasn't nicely grained and had a water mark/stain that wouldn't come out. So, i sprayed it with Plasti Dip, i primed it first with Plasti Dip primer, then four coats of black.

    It's my NV gun, and it's worked very well for me, the finish is very grippy, and has lasted well, and the good thing is if i get fed up with it, the coating will peel off.

    I think it's the same stuff Daystate use for their tactical stocks, certainly feels the same ;)

    Why on earth would you want to paint a walnut stock,even it's a very plain piece of walnut it must surely look better in its natural state.Refinish it with a stock refinishing kit to improve its appearance,yes,but paint no.The paint will probably chip and scratch easy and besides it will lower the value of the rifle if or when you sell it.I know I wouldn't buy a rifle that's been mucked about like that unless the price reflected it
