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.

    Hi all,
    Thought it was about time to give my CS700 walnut stock some care and affection. It's acquired a couple of dints/scatches over the past year so was wondering the best but more importantly safest way to get these out (I'm hoping I don't have to sand the whole stock down).
    Regards

    Dints should steam out with an iron an damp cloth.
    Scratches would require a bit of sanding though but hopefully wont be too deep.
    Thats the good thing with walnut stocks compared to beech is that they can be worked on and then refinished easier.

    2 questions:
    a) How does this iron and damp cloth work for dints?
    b) Should I use sand paper or wire wool for scratches?
    Thanks

    Literally get a walnut and rub the flesh against the scratch and the oils will come out and should help with blending the scratch in, sanding it may leave an uneven finish or a groove.

    The ratworks sell LP gunstock refinishing kits (oil and grain sealer) for £16 posted

    The steam from the damp cloth (damp not wet) will lift the fibres of the wood raising the dent. It'll still need to be sanded flat after usually to get a good finish. It works best on fresh dents and older dents are not always easily removed. I use this method regularly during my work and it can be very effective.
    As for sanding scratches it depends how deep they are. To be honest I'm on a different wavelength as scratches and dints don't bother me. all part of the life of a tool.

    Does the walnut 'bits' not just fall out when you wipe your stock?
    Is this a permanent solution?
    Thanks.

    It won't fill the hole with walnut :) the oils in the walnut will just darken/blend the scratch in.
    Just if you happen to have a walnut you can try it.

    It's as perminant as walnut oil is when you oil a whole stock. It's just walnut oil really, can't really add anymore info then that.
