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.

    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.'

  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.

    Hi, I am currently refurbishing the stock on my SA Jackal, it had been varnished by a previous owner really badly, drips and runs all over and a few knocks. I have carefully sanded off the varnish and the original colour which could not really be helped back to the beech upping the grade of paper so it is scratch free and smooth as a freshly buttered banister! Where to go now then, how to achieve as original a colour as possible and not really sure about the finish, to oil or varnish I have no idea.. Any advice would be muchly appreciated as the rest of the rifle is in great original condition and this will finish it off nicely.. Thanks..

    I use stain and oil finish with around 10 coats of danish oil seems to give a nice finish.

    Thanks that would be great, is it coloured or does the stock need staining first?

    Hi I had a similar prob on a Beech stocked BSA ....WOEFUL condition - sanded back with wet and dry in 400 grip or coarser first then 400 cannot remember *** grades used ....no magic in it just trial and error ...[ although I have never ever used proper 'sandpaper' ever for a stock - grip pieces break off and can ruin so i.m.o wet and dry always ] , then stain then as above Danish Oil - cannot remember if I brushed it on or wiped over multiple coats . Only did a couple and SUPER finish . Easy to re-fix if you get a ding in the stock when oot and aboooot
