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.

    How do you Camo your rifle?
    Is it dipped? Or do you use the Camo tape? Or Camo netting?

    I can't decide what to do with mine, so I'd like to see yours.

    Cheers.

    Here's a pic a customer sent me this week. He'd fitted one of my shrouds and camo wrapped it! I reckon it looks great!

    just some advice if its your 1st go take your time!
    Water temp is important, 90% of the dip is the prep work and only 10% the dipping and finishing.
    iv done it for a few years and have a proper setup 1200x500 tank and still get it wrong.
    but take your time degrease it a few times spend a few days on the prep and then it will look great. Good luck

    Thanks :) I'm sure it's much harder than it look's and you guys make it look easy, I'll do a few practice runs first. My mate has just finished his stainless tank and it just about ready to go but I can't wait for him and I like to do stuff myself.

    Good price that, I have seen quotes for £175, But it's not just the dipping you pay for it's all the prep and finishing.

    Please don't take this the wrong way, but you say you can't decide what to do, my take on it is , if you have paid several hundred pounds on a nice gun, don't do a permanent camo job on it, as it would instantly de value it, should you want to sell it on, or exchange it, if you must have some form of camo, I would go for cloth or netting etc, you can take it off. Hope you get sorted. Atb, Bob.

    I always use the jack pyke self clinging tape or some old bits of scrim net ..that way I can take it off to clean it etc I did have an s410 wrapped in CAMO IT wild grasslands once and that was pretty good because it does come off if and when you want to go back original atb
