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.

    '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.

  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.

    funny you should mention that mate - an aa s400 and a bsa ultra.
    the 2 pre drilled hole rarely line up for any rifle - we just drilled and countersunk another one to suit for both rifles (on ours, we used the existing top hole, and drilled another for the bottom one). the original hole not used is covered up by the pad.

    Just a word of caution!

    Each r10 butt plate is mated to the stock from the factory, when fitting a new or second hand replacement pad you are going to have to resort to some degree of sanding and refinishing to make them look mated and respectable. I had to do this recently when John Bowkett supplied a set of furniture for a bare bones stock I was finishing.

    It's quite a bit of work and if the butt pad has already been sanded down (second hand) then you are going to have to take your time and sand the stock even further than you would with a new butt pad.

    Here's a picture before sanding!

    Did you have to shave some off the width Tad's? I found the Bisley pads were too wide for anything as standard!

    this is the one fitted to my aa s400 mate

    P1000333.jpg P1000334.jpg P1000336.jpg

    the last pic shows the pad as it comes - the left hand piece is oversize on purpose, and needs shaping to suit every stock. after drilling another locating hole and attatching it to the butt, i marked it off (slightly oversize to allow for finer finishing), roughly ground it down on bench grinder, finished to size with a file, then fine finish and deburr with emery cloth/wet and dry.
    remember, after each stage, to offer the plate up to the butt to check (do this several times). its really easier than you think, just remember to double check everything and not to rush. plenty of instructional vids on youtube, this is one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJRpfmllDgk

    edit - i only drilled another hole for the ultra one because it has a plastic stock, so the screw holes are already in it. if its a wooden stock, you may not have to
