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.

    My first visit to an air gun forum! I recently decided to modify and bring up to date a Relum Tornado. It belonged to my father and was the first thing i shot. It had been neglected over its life and rarely used so i decided to do something about it!

    Relum Tornado "tactical sniper" the whole build in one go!

    Hello everybody, i was going to drag this out over a long period and show you a bit at a time, but i'm not that mean so here is the entire build in one go!

    Firstly i stripped the poor tatty old girl down then set about inspecting and cleaning.

    Next i polished the barrel by hand (as my polishing machine had yet to arrive haha.

    After all the degreasing and cleaning (carb cleaner is a peach for this kind of job as it evaporates instantly!).

    Next i checked the spring and mechanism and re-oiled everything as required and reassembled.

    The stock was the next job and as it had been gnawed on by one of my dads old dogs, this was going to be more than a quick sand down and varnish! I set about removing the damaged material using a belt sander and by hand. After a bit more "roughing up" i then gave it a few coats of primer to get a more usable surface. Next was a good dose of matt black (all done with rattle cans). Putting it back together was a doddle apart from a bit of detailing due to thickness of paint in some places! The whole job took just a couple of days, mainly drying time, then it was time to start fitting "the goodies".

    I have been watching "Sons of Guns" since the first episode and loved some of the crazy builds they have done and thought "this is the perfect opportunity to do something mad!".

    I fitted a set of tripple picatinny rails to both sides and also the base of the rifle, next i added a folding fore grip (which really does make holding the thing a lot easier given they're not the lightest of air rifles!) after that it was the turn or the black light which gives off a lovely blueish glow. The red dot laser was an obvious choice as there's nothing more menacing than a laser through smoke or dust hahaha. Obviously no tactical gun is complete without optics so i chose a nice big juicy scope with both green and red illuminated sights, has range and wind allowance etc. It could do with a new mount as the original relum mount is too narrow for the scope mounts so i have made it fit!

    And that's about it! What do you think?

    I'm not into shooting anymore and even thought the rifle has been in the family all its life i'm not sentimental over guns so it is for sale. I have no idea what its worth and have never seen another one so i guess its worth what someone is willing to pay? Any offers will be considered and i am always open to trade for anything different or interesting!
