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.

    Thank you.

    '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.

    Hiya Davy, I gave my first Meteor stock a few coats of Teak oil followed by wax (a week or so after the oil), it reacted badly...I had to sand the stock back to bare wood again. I'm not saying "Don't do it", I'm just saying that I won't be oiling & waxing woodwork ever again!!

    HI Deejayuu,I picked up a stock for one of my hw35,s and was given a box of bits and old air rifles,managed to swop a Diana g80 with a nackered trigger but good stock for pellets at a local RFD in Rhyl I think it will be resurrected ,A chinese .177 went to manchester and I liked the look of the hawk mk 2 its in .22, stock had been repaired well but I managed to find a new stock undamaged so acid stripped and just gave it about six coats of clear satin varnish rubbing down between coats with 0000 grade wire wool well pleased with the result.The barrel I had only the one in .22 the .177 was missing .The barrels which are interchangable like the service webleys where was reblued my first attempt not bad a little thin in places a clean up and relube lightly reblued screws and trigger guard new breech seal on the end of the cylinder shoots fine for a fourty plus year old rifle and on top sits a Nikko Stirling Cadet Scope 4x15 from the same era, been unable to source any original iron work but to have a scope on an air rifle in the sixties and seventies your parents must have been posh or had loads of money.Now I think I will sell it as it looks tiny among all my Weihrauch,s

    hi there Davymole, i am in the process of doing up a Hawk Mk II in .177 only. However the stock on it is for a Mk III so i am after a Mk II stock, the action fits but the trigger is a bit tight fitting in the trigger guard. So basicly what i'm asking is have you an old Mkk II stock now you have sourced a new one, and if so what can i do for you to convince you to send it my way, cash?, Relum spares?, sell my granny?, what ever state it is in i am a dab hand with wood work..

    I have sorted her out internally so she is firing at factory spec, and if i can get the correct stock it will be worth rebluing her as well as sourcing a matching .22 barrel. It's a shame they didn't come with a .25 barrel as well, though it wouldn't be too hard to turn one up to fit with the aid of a lathe, oh well we can all dream i suppose.
