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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    He yup guys and gals

    Took mi shotgun stock to work with me today as the old girls looking a bit tired , this gun was a 21st birthday present from my dad so its dear to me and I'm sure I'll have it for years to come as for a lower end price scale gun it is bloody brilliant I've taken all sorts with it shoots great , hopefully I won't bore you to much so here goes just a few pics of the process all be it a bit brief

    Like a muppet i fprgot some before pics so as far as comparison goes there aint much to go on
    Now paramorse industrial stripper applied with a paint brush then wire wooled off and a very old and well used soft brass brush for the chequering it did'nt take much as the stock was oiled and not much left on after the years

    Afterwords a good sand with decreasing grades of sand paper

    (More to follow ,on my mobile so have to do it in stages sorry :D )

    Then I applied some namptha stain dark oak in this case ( you can add thinners to this to lighten the stain ) just to add as well there was a couple of screws that weren't for shifting so I masked the mechanism up and replaced between stages so no crap went anywhere it shouldn't

    As I was suited with the colour the stain left I didnt need to use any colours in the laquers so just natural base coat (two coats then one satin finish coat )

    End result I'm chuffed so just thought I would share

    Cheers
    All

    Very nice, I have an old 12g and a couple of very old rifles which would benifit from similar work. Unfortunately wood is something I'm not very good with (you should see the playhouse I've just built for my daughter!!!!)
