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

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.

    Good evening, gents. I posted last month about picking up a rather pretty .410 s/s in need of some TLC. I'd appreciate your help.
    The outsides of the barrels have some surface rust and a little light pitting. It's not serious, but it's not going to go away with an oily rag. Is there a way I can remove the rust and pitting without damaging the bluing?
    Your advice, please.

    You could try very gentle rubbing with some scrunched up tin foil and plenty of oil, but in an inconspicuous place to start in case it lifts the bluing

    Thanks for that, sir. I'll give it a go tomorrow.
    I've got some very fine wire wool, too, is that any good?

    I have found that it's a slow process. Coarse cloth, "old jeans" and thin oil. Give it a good going over every time you get chance. Don't try to do it all at once. Leave the barrel a bit oily after each go. Dozen goes and you will find a vast improvement.

    Paul, the problem is that reblacking the barrels to your standard would show up the rest of the gun! She's an old Belgian lady, the S/N is a single digit!
    The woodwork and breech-block show they've been used to being used. Just doing the barrels would spoil her looks, but thanks anyway.

    Monster energy drink.

    Soak that bad boy overnight in the drink and the rust will vanish.

    Will be interested to know if it affects the blueing too.
