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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

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.

    Been thinking about selling my wolverine c type and replacing it with a Theoben MFR just wondering if anyone has had experience owning one and what you reckon on whether its worth doing or not

    I'm a massive rapid fan boy and own a very nice custom mfr and is my fav gun. I've used the b version and must say if I was going to get a new rifle I think I would look real hard at it.

    Whats drawing you to the mfr over the wolverine?

    Are you not getting in with it?

    I appreciate that the wolverine is reputed to have issues and having owned a rapid mk1 previously I can only advise you to try any theoben you replace your wolverine with.
    Great guns when they are set up right
    If not prepare yourself for grey hairs a general pain in the ass
    Mine was eventually put right by Bucketboy on the Rapid forums and then it was awesome

    Is it worth it
    I don't know tbh
    A well sorted rapid is great but the wolverine is one desirable gun
    I wish I could afford one

    I'd take a sorted, late-model MFR over a Wolverine any day of the week tbh; although of course neither are perfect..

    I like Theoben, I like them a lot but swapping a Wolverine for any Theoben?
    Not a chance if it was me.

    The Wolverine barrel is 3 inches into the breech, no chance of loosing zero when knocking the barrel. That is down to the shroud.
    You can't double load it
    You can't shoot it unless the bolt is forward
    These are just some of the features making the Wolverine , at least to me, a gun I'd want more than anything

    On top of that there are some serious tinkers wanting or having a Wolverine and it's just a question of time until they come up with solutions to some issues like loss of zero when knocking the shroud.
    If it wasn't for those tinkers who did their thing who would want a bog standard Rapid?
