    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 folks,Just finished a quick refurb on my Vulcan, the rifle was in good condition when I bought it just needed a fettle.
    so,the old stock has been stripped back and I used Danish oil, dark oak about seven coats with wet and dry in between, finished with some beeswax polish.<
    Re blued the action and barrel,Didn't strip the action as the rifle shoots really nice as is, just cleaned and lubed.
    And that about it really, my question is what Mk of Vulcan is it ?. Any help would be great,
    cheers

    Looks like a mk2 to me the white spacer at the pistol grip cap separates it from a mk1 and it's had a non oem recoil spacer put in. Could be a mk3 though.

    Yes I thought it may be a Mk3 but not sure, are the internals the same and just the external details that are different?

    the butt spacers have been made by someone and the trigger is a two stage type, it also has a very chunky barrel is this common to the Vulcan.

    A mk3 vulcan has a 16mm barrel the mk2 is 14.2mm that's what I was told .
    the white spacers make it a mk2 or mk3 so just measure your barrel.

    what did you use to blue the action I have started stripping mine its rusty and pitted it spent the last 27 years up a friend's loft.
    I have started sanding out the pitting and stripping back the stock.
    Yours looks very well done so im hoping to achieve similar results.
    cheers

    I used a palm sander and started at 80 grit then worked up to 1200, then buffed the metal on the works machine to a nice polished finish, then used G98 blue to finish:)

    It's a Mk2,

    by the looks of it, the barrel has had a sleeve fitted to it,

    is the trigger blade brass or just sprayed with gold paint ?

    The trigger is brass, its also got a brass cap at the muzzle end, which looks like it has been fitted to possibly to protect a thread for silencer.

    I can't say without seeing the rifle, but it's a fair bet Venom arms have had their hands on this rifle.

    Is there a crinkle pattern around the brass end cap, or is it removeable ?

    end cap is smooth and looks screwed in, the weapon may have had work as it is very smooth to shoot,

    Enjoy shooting the Vulcan, maybe at some stage in the future, someone can pin down who did the mods to the rifle.

    Have a look at the Chambers diagram of the Vulcan breech block, they have only got the Mk3 listed.

    Webley used the Hawk breech block on the Mk 1 & 2 Vulcans, moving from a 14.3 mm barrel on the mk1's to a 16mm on the mk2's, but there is some cross over between the 2 models, barrel size wise.
