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.'

  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 Lads,

    i've paid for mk4 sportster stock for my mk3 and now thinking wtd with the current stock i have
    http://www.airgunforum.co.uk/forums/showthread.php/181074-new-upgrades-for-my-beloved-MK3

    it was refinished twice:

    - at first by the 88S forum member - some rubbish jobby,
    being sanded down with 180 grade sandpaper before i've got it and stupidly stippled

    - secondly - by me:
    - - all sanded nicely with 240-320-400-600 sandpaper and wirewool
    - - restippled
    - - bisley reg butt pad fitted
    - - sailboat carved on right side
    - - 11 coats of tru oil applied (each second coat sanded with 600 grade)


    now questions:

    - should i offer this stok on this forum before to sell elswhere?
    - what should be the fair price (basically have some understanding on possible evil bay sale price)?

    The stippling is poor the edges of the ambi cheek piece have been rounded off as has the butt of the stock where it meets the butt plate and as for the carved motif "UGH" sorry to be so blunt !!!

    On a lighter note the oiling looks good, shame about the stock you wasted it on !!!

    Dont know how much of it is your work or the previous owner but I don't think it's gonna fetch any decent money !!!

    No offence meant, just my opinion for what it's worth !!!

    much appriciate ur fair comments,

    think will not bother forum members in sales and will let it go somewhere else

    it was some hard to anyhow restore the crappy jobb i've got from 88S member (really had to refund that), so compare with the firelog it was, now it's much better

    As long as it couldn't be seen, it would not be a problem, theres lots of very strong wood glues that could be used.

    in a distant galaxy, far far away ....... actually
    in my opinion, the only saving grace is the grain/natural markings of the wood. if you were to remove the tacky 'etching' and the true oil finish, put back to standard and re-oil, i would say it may be worth £70-80 to the right person.
    leave it as it is, and you ought to pay someone to take it.
    sorry if my answer appears harsh, but just been honest

    Real shame as the stock has a lovely stripped pattern in the grain. :(
