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

    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.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

Todays Tinkering - What Can We Do To A Cp1???

    Gentlemen... following me recent inclusion into the Cp1 Owners Club..... I felt it was my DUTY... to ... well... embellish further with this lovely little cheap pistol.

    The "normal" course of aesthetic embellishment is to strip the garish brown lacquer off the woodwork and oil it up...

    BUT... being different in nature.... I decided to go one step beyond.

    I never have liked the look (and now) the feel of the huge flat square base of the pistol grip... so that HAD to go...

    I like the idea of oiling my woodwork... (Gentlemen.... PLEASE...!!!!) so a nice stripped but darker bit of wood, would be in order....

    I also like the extended stock for this pistol.. BUT.. I am NOT a fan of the CP2 styling...

    So, what do we do...... we make out own.... out of bits of ash, some old ally tube, a bit of 16mm delrin bar, a tin of elbow grease and a copious amount of coffee....

    .....and we transform this.............
    20200623_222931.jpg

    with the addition of this....
    20200630_160314.jpg 20200630_160337.jpg

    and a nice little reflex sight.... were relatively happy....
    20200721_142444.jpg


    ....and then go and we do this........

    And this is a 7 shot grouping with red dot reflex sights @ 11 yards with Crossman 14.5gr pellets using the shoulder stock.. (target area is 18mm diameter)

    I am pretty chuffed with it!!!!!

    Looks great, Hal.

    Not a fan of the standard grip myself, and agree, that's a really nice transformation.

    Very nice. Been thinking of re finishing the stock so may as well profile the grip. Fitted a reflex also and I am impressed. Just ordered an A4 sheet of carbon fibre wrap for £1.99 for a couple of mods including this one :thumb:

    Heyup Willo... I have made 3 for the CP1, a small carbon screw on, a larger carbon screw on and a larger ally screw on....

    All work pretty well....
